You know how it goes. The temperature drops, the wind picks up, and all of a sudden you’re wishing you’d spent a little more time hydrating over the summer—and a little less time with a cocktail in your hand. Ah, winter. Even us Cali girls go through a version of it—not as bone-chillingly cold as the wet winters out east, but arid air does its own special damage.
Anyone else feeling winter skin woes?
Alas, the only thing any of us can do is hydrate! Which is why I’m excited about two new products I’ve been using lately that are helping keep moisture in my skin and lips….
1. Zweena Argan Rose Rejuvenating Face Serum
What happens when you take ethically sourced argan oil, a known favorite of ours, and add stress-busting rose? Zweena, that’s what! An awesome new line that I had the pleasure of discovering recently. Jayme Barrett, the company’s founder is a smart and lovely lady who discovered argan oil (and found her husband!) on a trip to Morocco. It’s a great story. A fellow author, she also wrote the popular book Feng Shui Your Life, and when we met she promised she’d contribute a piece to NMDL on the subject! (I don’t know about you guys, but I’m woefully ignorant about the Feng Shui. But this is the year I learn.) I’ve only tried the Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum myself, and whether or not it’s really diminishing my wrinkles—rosehip seed oil is a popular anti-aging natural—it feels amazing, and the smell makes me happy. I like using it on my face, and keep it at work to give me little rose-scented pick-me-ups during the day. I also like putting a little on my split ends.
