No matter the season, we all experience dry skin at some point. Whether your skin is naturally dry or you're not as diligent about moisturizing as you should be, healing parched skin is something every woman has to deal with. Luckily, the task isn't all that hard when you have the right tools and techniques. Just use these tips the next time you're dealing with a dry spell and your skin will be back to healthy and hydrated in no time. 1. Start in the shower. It should go without saying, but what you use to cleanse your skin is critically important. Lots of cleansers and body washes actually contain harsh ingredients that not only dry your skin, but also strip it of its natural moisture. Instead of washing with one of those, use a soap or body wash that's formulated with goat milk. Goat milk contains ingredients that naturally balance the alkalinity of skincare products so that they don't rob your skin of its moisture. Try Nature by Canus pure vegetal base soap with Fresh Canadian Goat Milk Soap and Real Shea Butter, which was recently voted 2018 Product of the Year by over 40,000 consumers. 2. Lock it in. The one thing you should do the moment you step out of the shower or bath? Lock in that moisture with a powerful lotion. Again, something made with goat milk is your best bet because this ingredient's shorter protein strands allow for easy absorption to nourish and heal skin that needs extra TLC. Nature by Canus' Shea Butter Lotion not only has the benefits of fresh goat milk, but is also made with shea butter to increase hydration and help your skin maintain its natural elasticity. 3. Spot treat. Some areas of your body will require a bit more special attention than others. Knees, elbows, feet and hands are particularly susceptible to dryness, so don't be afraid to give them a little extra lotion during your post-shower rubdown and throughout the day. Nature by Canus' Fragrance-Free Creamy Body Lotion works well on all skin types (yes, even sensitive!). 4. Drink up. You've heard it before, but we'll say it again: drink water. One of the easiest and most effective ways to ward off dry skin is to hydrate from within. Invest in a reusable water bottle that you can carry with you to stay hydrated throughout the day.

I know it's kind of sacrilege to admit this right now, but I'm not into sheet masks. *Gasp* They never fit my face right and they always leave my skin feeling a bit slimy. Don't get me wrong: I love to indulge and nourish my skin with a good facial mask as much as the next woman. My preference just happens to be a mask that I slather on. My current obsession is Eve Lom's Radiance Transforming Mask. In case you're unfamiliar, Eve Lom is a wildly popular skincare brand that's best known for their creams and serums that replenish and restore skin to keep it looking and feeling its best. And this indulgent mask is no exception. When I first opened the jar, I was super surprised by the texture of this mask. I'm used to creamy, lotion-like facial masks, but this one felt more like a lightweight oil jelly. I dabbed a few pats on my cheeks, chin, forehead and neck and then started massaging with my fingertips. #heaven The mask melted into my skin and felt so good that I decided not to rinse it after 30 minutes and instead sleep with it on overnight. The next morning I rinsed my face with warm water and honestly, I couldn't believe how smooth my skin felt. It was like I'd had a facial in my sleep. My skin was bright and bouncy and I knew I was hooked because how could I not be addicted to my skin looking and feeling like this?! Here's the thing: a jar of Eve Lom's Radiance Transforming Mask is $90. Let that sink in. Once the shock has worn off, you should know that one jar will literally last you at least six months. You don't need to use a lot and you won't need (or want!) to buy any other masks when you're using this one. Yes, this mask is a splurge, but you (and your skin!) totally deserve it.

I recently started straightening my naturally curly hair and lets just say, the humidity this fall hasn't been kind to me. It seems like the second I step outside, my hair immediately starts frizzing. The one product that's been my saving grace? Bumble & Bumble's Invisible Oil. I never used to carry hair products in my makeup bag, but now I don't leave home without my travel size of this stuff. Yes, it's that good. If you're thinking, "I don't want an oil weighing down my hair," you've got Bumble & Bumble's Invisible Oil all wrong. This stuff is seriously lightweight. It's actually a blend of six different oils that absorbs super quickly so it's weightless on your hair within seconds. Just because you can't feel it, though, doesn't mean it's not working. I use this oil to soften, tame and de-frizz my straightened hair humid days and it works like a charm every single time. Even better, it also protects my hair against breakage and UV damage, too. I've been using Invisible Oil for about a month now and my hair is noticeably softer and fuller, even though I'm straightening it more regularly. If you've been looking for a product to tame, nourish and give your strands major shine and softness, this is the one! SHOP BUMBLE & BUMBLE'S INVISIBLE OIL NOW

I'm sure that most of us woman can agree that bralettes were one of the best inventions ever. Am I right?! To still get coverage and support without underwires poking you in the sides, what more could you ask for? Since bralettes are pretty much the only thing I wear now (guilty!), I am always on the hunt for ones that give my girls support but also makes it look like I am actually wearing a real bra. My latest obsession? Richer Poorer's new Cut Out Bralette. These bralettes are not only the softest and most comfortable thing in the world, but they also have adjustable straps so you can get the perfect fit and make you forget that you're wearing one! And not only are they comfortable but they are also super cute, too. The cutout details make it the perfect style to wear under a sheer tee because you'll definitely want to show it off. Richer Poorer Cut Out Bralette $28 If this launch is anything like their first bralette, they are going to sell out fast. So if you want to get your hands on one, we recommend picking one up ASAP.
I'm a complete mascara addict. I don't buy many beauty products, but if there's one item I'm more than willing to splurge on it's mascara because it makes such a big difference. Just a few swipes of a good mascara and my eyes go from sleepy to bright and awake just like that. I wasn't on the hunt for a new favorite mascara; I actually already have two that I love and didn't feel the need to replace. But when I purchased my go-to eye makeup remover it came with a sample of Lancome's Monsieur Big mascara, so I decided to give it a try. Best. Freebie. Ever! I started using my Monsieur Big mascara last week and haven't stopped since. Yes, I've completely turned my back on my old favorites because this mascara is so good. The wand has lots of stiff bristles that grip my lashes and evenly apply the black mascara from root to tip. I use about three swipes on each eye and my lashes look longer, fuller and basically just amazing. What I really love most about this mascara, though, is that it stays put! Lots of mascaras I've used over the years have a tendency to deposit black residue underneath your eye throughout the day, but not Monsieur Big. It keeps my lashes looking great all day long and never flakes or rubs off underneath my eye. If you're a makeup minimalist like me, then you should definitely invest in a few makeup bag items that are the best of the best. This mascara is $25 and worth every dollar in my opinion!
