Let’s face it, winter isn’t our best friend when it comes to our hair and skin. It’s cold, wet and windy outside and hot, dry and ventilated inside. During this season, we tend to notice that our hair is a little lackluster and our skin a little dull. But with the right products, you can use the winter months as a time to repair hair damage and perfect your skin’s natural glow. A winter beauty routine that’s rich in hydrating properties and geared toward repair and protection, is just what you need to cure those seasonal beauty woes. Here are five things you need to keep your hair & skin moisturized during these cold winter months:
#1 – HYDRATING SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER

In the winter, it’s imperative that you use a shampoo & conditioner that is going to gently nourish and add moisture to your hair. Nutriplenish is a brand new line from Aveda that provides deep hydration for all hair types from fine to thick, to textured and everywhere in between. It’s formulated with superfoods and omega-5 rich organic oils for nutrient powered hydration. Choose from light moisture or deep moisture depending on the thickness and texture of your hair. The collection also includes a leave-in conditioner and multi-use oil for an extra shot of shine inducing, hydration nutrition.
#2 – DAILY MOISTURIZING OIL
If your hair has been feeling brittle and dry, working a little bit of hydrating oil to targeted areas will help battle static, repair dryness and make your hair more soft and manageable. We love Aveda’s Dry Remedy daily moisturizing oil. It’s made with organic buriti oil (from the “tree of life”) and provides a weightless finish. Focus on applying this to the ends of your hair for less breakage. Ideal if you regularly use heating tools.
#3 – INTENSE MOISTURE SKINCARE

Our skin needs some extra attention in the colder months. Cold air outside and hot air inside can cause dryness and redness. During this time, you want a thicker, more intense creme for your skin. Aveda’s Botanical Kinetics intense cremes (both soft and rich) are made to stimulate hydration and help recharge your skin cells to power skin’s natural moisture system. Choose the soft creme for normal skin and the rich creme for very dry skin.
#4 – RICH HYDRATION FOR HANDS & FEET
For some reason, despite the fact that we use our hands and feet all day long, they sort of get neglected in our beauty routines. If you’re experiencing dry, cracked skin on your hands and feet, now is the perfect time to add Hand & Foot Relief to your arsenal. They include plant hydrators to help infuse skin with nourishment for soft, moisturized hands and feet. Apply this before you put on your socks and gloves to lock in the moisture.
#5 – STAY HYDRATED
Can’t forget the most important beauty product of all—water! Be sure you’re staying hydrated by drinking lots of water. You can apply all the products you want, but if you aren’t hydrated from the inside, it will be more difficult to achieve the results you want to see. If you get bored with water, warm broths and hot tea can also help keep you hydrated. Enjoy a hot cup of Aveda’s Comforting Tea which is soothing, decaffeinated and promotes a sense of well-being.
