Winter Beauty Tips For Women Over 40

Winter Skin Care Over 40Frigid temperatures, indoor heating, and low humidity can strip skin and hair of their moisture. As the temperatures drop, some of us may need to modify our makeup and skincare routines. Today’s guest blogger Cindy Ingalls from PrimeBeauty has some tips for us for us to adjust to the weather.

Cindy: I know my face has been feeling like the Sahara desert already and my hands are like sandpaper. Here’s what can help:

1.   Consider a tinted lip balm instead of lipstick. Lipstick can be drying; by using a tinted balm your lips will stay moisturized and still pretty with a bit of color.

IT Cosmetics makes a very natural, matte bronzer I like. Continue Reading
