Winter in Massachusetts can be harsh and this year is definitely no exception.  These conditions – low temps, dry air, and sun exposure – can be hazardous for your skin health.

Modify your skin care routine and you can maintain that healthy complexion through the winter.

Skincare products

Use an antioxidant moisturizer with these water-binding, anti-inflammatory ingredients:

  • amino acids

Keep those lips from cracking!  Use high quality lip balm with hemp oil, shea butter, vitamin e, beeswax and SPF 15 to keep your lips smooth and soft.
