Reform (habits that age you)
When the temperatures plummet, give aging the cold shoulder. Icy temperatures, whipping winds and cranked up heat can wreak havoc on the unsuspecting and unprepared. To help, we’ve pulled together a week’s worth of tips to tackle your trickiest winter woes (think flaking, itching, cracking and dryness).


Get glowing.

A buildup of dead skin cells can decrease the amount of absorption you get from products you apply, increasing winter dryness and dullness.

Reach for:

Radiance-revealing Instant Retexturizing Scrub.


Quench dryness.

Dropping mercury outside and turned up thermostats inside decrease humidity which can make skin dry and inevitably older looking.

Reach for:

Super hydrating and deeply nourishing New! Advanced Retinol Night Treatment.


Tress for success.

Cold weather adversely affects hair like it does skin. Strands become dry and frizzy. Restore smoothness by deep conditioning hair at least once a week for 10-15 minutes.

“Hat Hair” Stopper:

Volumizing sprays and root boosters can give hair extra body to keep it full for “hat” days.


Play it safe.

Ultraviolet rays pose a risk to skin health. Skiers and snow boarders beware: UV rays are stronger at higher altitudes.

Reach for:

SPF 30 Age Protect with UVA/UVB sunscreens.


Find relief.

Chapped and wind-burned skin is extremely itchy. Calm skin by soaking in a natural colloidal oatmeal bath.

Make Your Own:

Grind oatmeal (not instant) into a fine powder with a food processor or blender. Dissolve about 2 cups in a tub of lukewarm water.


Chill out.

Muscles respond to the cold by tensing up. Help loosen muscles and boost circulation to give skin a rosy glow with a hot stone massage.

Warm Up Stretch:

Stretch out neck and shoulders in the shower. The warm water serves as a natural muscle relaxant, allowing for deeper stretches.


Soften up.

Thin-skinned with little natural insulation, hands easily chap and crack if left exposed to winter air.

Reach for:

Skin-silkening Volumizing Hand Treatment (with shea butter)…and a pair of warm, wooly gloves.

Humidity Booster:

Use a humidifier to keep indoor moisture levels skin friendly.
