  • Product Review: TRIA Clarifying Foam Cleanser

    TRIA Clarifying Foam Cleanser, $28, www.nordstrom.com

    During this time of year, my skin goes through a series of changes. First, I get the dry patches around my nose and mouth. Next, I get the tightness and finally it’s the slight redness that arises from irritation or dehydration. One way I have found to combat the winter skin woes is with a fabulous cleanser. Being that I am partial to foaming cleansers, it would seem a bit contradictory that I would plug a foaming cleanser during the winter as these cleansers are not known for their moisturizing properties. However, I recently came across an amazing foaming cleanser by TRIA skin care that knocks that theory out of the water! I love the quick foaming action which immediately rids my skin of dirt, grime and debris. I also can’t get enough of the hydrating aftereffect which makes me want to skip my moisturizer although I can’t bring myself to do that. Love this cleanser. It’s great for all skin types and is a great way to keep your winter skin looking fresh and fabulous!

  • I’m Currently Obsessed With…Moisturizing Gloves & Socks!

    Moisturizing Socks and Gloves are the Answers to Rough, Dry Skin!

    I have this mild obsession with soft skin. I am always on the hunt for products that will keep my skin smooth to the touch no matter what the season. During the winter months, I find my feet and hands tend to need a lot more TLC which is where moisturizing gloves and socks come in. These little dry skin banishers literally soften skin while you sleep. The way it works is, before bed and preferably after a nice hot shower, slather your hands and feet with a heavy cream based lotion or salve. Next, pull on your gloves and socks which are lined with a special moisturizing gel insert. Tuck yourself in for a good 7-8 hours of sleep and upon awakening, you will have the smoothest hands and feet imaginable! You can find these wonderful winter aids at various price points! Smooth days are ahead!
