Mini-Makeover #2: Glowing Winter Skin

I just got home for winter break and the Northern weather is already taking a toll on me.

You don't realize just how gloomy and sad it is up North until the sun sets at 4:00 pm, you're hungry for dinner at 4:30 p.m, and ready for bed by 7:00. 

The weather isn't even festive yet; it hasn't snowed, so everyday the frost turns the brown dirt crunchy underneath your boots, and the gray trees rattle in the woods next to my house.

It's a little depressing.

Another negative of being in the North in the winter is the dry winter air. I walk outside and my hair had a million flyaways, my lips get chapped, and my hands start to peel.

Today, I'm going to share a secret for getting that glowy, dewy, impossibly moisturized skin.


Yes, I'm going to say it again.


I know it is very contradictory and scary to smear oil all over your face, but I'm telling you, it's the secret to getting soft, break-out free, healthy winter (and year round!) skin.

Want to learn more about how oil helps your skin? And which oil to buy for your skin?

Check out what Lauren has to say over at Naked Truth Beauty!

Currently, I'm using coconut oil on my face at night (a few dabs), and argan oil on my face during the day. However, I would like to switch over to Jojoba Oil soon ($8 at Trader Joe's) because it mimics your skin's natural sebum the closest.

So far my skin has actually cleared up a LOT, and I notice that the texture and color of my skin has improved a lot.

Take it from me, if you want soft, clear, touchable skin in the harsh winter weather, start putting oil on your face!

What is your experience with skin oil or the oil cleansing method?
