Winter Care

By Myron Mariano / September 7, 2011

Prepare for the winter by introducing the following winter care items:

1. Simply Organics Anti-Frizz Crème

Eliminate frizz, boost your curls, and get megawatt shine in just one bottle. The organic cream contains olive-leaf extract to balance the pH level of your hair, and the white nettle extract nourishes and helps control sebum secretion. $18


2. von Natur Face Cleanser

This 91-percent organic cleanser is charged with antioxidants that keep your skin supple. “Cleansing creams do not contain the typical surfactant or detergent ingredients which can be too harsh on your skin,” advises Kayla Fioravanti, a registered aromatherapist and co-founder of von Natur. $25.50


3. Nature’s Gate Skin Therapy Moisturizing Lotion

“If your skin is itching,” says Fioravanti, “it is because the dry air of winter is causing the moisture in the top layer of your skin to evaporate quickly.” Quench your body’s thirst with this lotion. We like the very pleasant from-the-spa scent that lingers long after we’ve smoothed it on. $9.99


4. L’uvalla SPF20 Sunscreen

Never scrimp on sun protection any time of the year—frolicking on the slopes exposes you to the same skin-cancer-causing rays of the sun as a beach sojourn. The sunscreen, enriched with vitamin E, doesn’t leave a white residue. $46.50


5. Purely Shea Shea Butter

This luxurious, 100-percent pure, USDA-certified organic shea butter is known to improve wrinkles, stretch marks, and blemishes. “Using it in its purest form offers the most healing factors,” says Robyn Scott, R.Ph., Pharm.D. Try it out unscented, or be adventurous with the lavender or citrus variant. $19.50


6. Amala Hydrating Yogurt Mask

Treat parched winter skin by applying this yogurt mask one to two times a week. “Natural ingredients such as organic milk, avocado, and macadamia nut [strengthen] your skin’s ability to hold moisture,” says Ute Leube, the founder of Amala, “while wild rose seed and papaya smooth skin’s texture.” $52


7. Yum Skincare

23-Karat Intensive Eye Treatment The area around your eyes shows the signs of aging earliest. Delay this—and boost collagen production—with the calming calendula, seabuckthorn, and organic sunflower found in Yum Skincare’s eye treatment. $52


8. Le FP Green Body Care

A swipe of this 95 percent organic olive oil- and calendula flower oil-fortified lip balm is all your kissers need to stay in top shape. $3
