Hand moisturizer
A tube of hand lotion in your purse will keep your hands and nails soft and supple despite the weather. Regular use of hand moisturizer . Cracked, dry hands and cuticles are painful and unattractive: and avoidable! Your skin loses moisture from the cold and wind and from hand washing. Frequent applications of hand lotion will help your skin retain moisture and avoid redness and cracking. Hand lotion can also be applied to your face and neck to keep your skin hydrated on the go.
For dry, fly away hair hand lotion makes a great emergency hair tamer. Simply rub a bit of lotion between your hands, then pat and smooth hour hands on your hair ends and roots to tame the flyaways.
Lip balm
In cold weather the sun and wind suck all the moisture out of your exposed lips. Keep your lips hydrated with a moisturizing lipstick or lip balm.
Dry heated air can also cause you to like your lips frequently, leaving your lips dry, chapped and cracked. Lip balm should be applied frequently whether inside or outside in the winter to keep your lips soft and supple.
If you have a cold and are frequently blowing your nose, your lip balm makes a convenient moisturizer around your nostrils.
Hat or earmuffs
Tuck a stocking cap or earmuffs in your bag so your fragile ears don’t get dry or patchy in harsh weather. Cold weather has even been known to damage hearing: your ears are often exposed to the weather and cold ears can be painful.
Tip: Many earmuffs with wire frames can easily and tightly wrap around your coat sleeve, so you always have a pair of earmuffs handy to protect your ears… and your hairstyle.
Sunglasses
Protect your eyes from bright glaring sun and wind in the cold weather months just as you do in the warm weather. Wind can dry out and damage your eyes when left unprotected, and the sensitive skin surrounding your eyes easily dries out and wrinkles.
Sunglasses protect your eyes and skin from cold, wind and bright winter sun. On windy days bits of debris and foliage can be in the air; sunglasses protect your eyes from soot or particles in the air.
What do you carry in your purse to protect your skin during cold weather?
