Welcome to Well+Good’s (Re)New Year—a five-week expert-led program that’s all about helping you have your best year yet. For Week Four, we’ve brought on Nitika Chopra—talk show host, self-love guru, and beauty and lifestyle expert. Throughout the week, she’ll be sharing her tips for making self care a priority and giving your beauty routine the clean makeover it deserves.
Unless you’re one of the few people who can somehow avoid winter (#blessed), this season is unfortunately filled with wind-chapped cheeks, flaky foreheads, and dry, dull skin (#notblessed).
Moisturizers or serums can’t keep those complexion-ruiners completely at bay, but there are some miracle products out there to give you the TLC you need to get into healthy, glowing, and—dare I say—warm weather-ready shape.
As a beauty blogger and skin-care expert on TV, I’ve tried my fair share of products (trust me)—which means that I’ve done the dirty work and have figured out which ingredients actually work wonders.
So, don’t wait until spring to slough off those dry skin cells—these five all-natural face masks will bring you back to your brightest, most radiant-skinned self. Yes, even on the grayest January day.
Here are my favorite all-natural face masks to help you battle winter skin—check them out, and then show me your (Re)New Year selfies on Instagram using #iamwellandgood.
This mask is pure chocolate magic—not only because of how glowy your face looks after one use, but also because you literally feel like you’re basking in cocoa heaven as you wait for it to dry.
The first time I tried this mask, I was honestly kind of shocked by how much of a difference I saw. It works wonders on even the dullest winter skin—and it actually smells like fresh pumpkin.
This mask is the ultimate in luxury: The honey is so rich and nourishing on your skin, plus the apple and aloe notes smell incredible.
Turmeric is all the rage right now—but as an Indian woman, I have known of the healing anti-inflammatory properties my whole life. It’s truly a miracle spice that’s not only delicious in your golden latte, but also good for your skin.
I love a good clay mask. There is something so satisfying about chilling out (ideally mid-moon ritual) knowing that it’s pulling out every little toxin from my face. Best of all? Afterwards my skin looks so clean and fresh.
The (Re)New Year series is not a “New Year, New You” program. (We think you’re pretty great as is!) Instead, we tapped the biggest and best influencers across the wellness space to help kick off the New Year in the best possible way. Between heart-racing workouts, DIY beauty recipes, and killer confidence advice, get ready to have your happiest and healthiest year yet.
