TIP #4 - DON'T FEAR OIL
Oil based moisturizers and skin care will help to form a protective barrier against the elements, drenching the skin in moisture that really lasts. There are many types of oils available, and the best products use a combination of oils.
Hair: MOROCCANOIL is the go-to brand for serious damage control for your hair. A little goes a long way with this pure argan oil treatment which coats and protects hair from damage due to environment, color-treatment, or heated styling. A must have in every winter haircare regimen!

Face: This is where you have to be careful and only use the highest quality products. Face oil works as a treatment for very dry, sensitive, and flaking skin, and should not be used if you are prone to break outs or have oily skin. Try the Support Supersensitive Face Oil from AROMATHERAPY ASSOCIATES to cure excessive dryness on the face.

Body: Whether you are getting a professional massage or simply moisturizing after the shower, using a body oil is one of the best ways to keep your skin soft and supple during the cold, dry winter months. NEUTROGENA actually makes a great affordable body oil, which goes on light and moisturizes with sesame oil!

Extremities and Spot Treatment: Even with these precautions, dry spots can still appear on the skin. To treat these excessively chapped areas, use REN's Mayday Mayday Rescue Balm. I love this because unlike most skin balms, it contains no sulfates or parabens, and utilizes pure essential oils and plant extracts to naturally nourish dry areas.
