Tips For Pampering Skin in the Winter

Beauty Cures For Winter Blues

We're excited to present this article from one of our favorite sites, Allure!

The holidays are over, which means no more binging on sugar cookies, vegging on the couch watching TV marathons, and enjoying stress-free days. But it doesn't mean you have to sink into being bummed out.

Of course, true seasonal depression requires professional treatment. But for a milder case of blah-dom, our no-fail cure? Beauty products, of course! As for me personally, I trick myself: It might be time to bundle up, but that doesn't stop me from pretending I'm headed somewhere tropical on occasion. If I'm doing something special, I get a spray tan. But to make sure I don't stick out like Snooki in the middle of Winter, I ask for only one coat of the most subtle spray tan formula the salon offers.

Winter weather is also a great excuse to pamper your skin: "Maybe it's because the air is drier and colder, but I always pay more attention to my skin in the Winter. I smear my face with moisturizer morning and night—I love Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief because it's a gel-cream, so no matter how much I use, my skin never feels heavy or greasy," says Allure beauty editor Angelique Serrano. "Then instead of my usual anti-acne mask once a week, I switch to trying out different moisturizing masks. I do everything I can to get my face looking plump and dewy, because that reminds me of the way my skin looks in the Summer."

What beauty tricks do you have for keeping a smile this time of year?
