Winter is Coming, Winter is Here: Hot Beauty Products for the Coldest of Times!

By Kat Thomas, Edible Skinny

Winter is Coming, Winter is Here. (Along with the final season of Game of Thrones in April 2019!)  And with Winter comes pale dry skin, static cling hair, and foundation that is too dark for your vampire colored body! ;-)

Yes Baby it’s cold outside!  We know that you need some Beauty 911 to combat the impending doom of frostbitten lips and dragon like skin. 

So here’s the skinny on all things beauty reviving as the darkest of beauty times is here! ;-)

Better Skin Mirakle Cream - $34
We all need a bit (okay a lot) of reparation in the skin area this time of year, well Better Skin Mirakle Cream is genius in a jar with it’s one-stop, skin-loving, problem-solving, all-purpose cream!  Mirakle Cream’s ingredient rich recipe, imported from the Republic of Uzbekistan, is handcrafted in the USA with love and FAB FAB ingredients such as coconut oil, sea buckthorn, shea butter, cocoa butter, aloe, and soothing algae to help moisturize the skin.  Peptides and hyaluronic acid help skin appear smoother, more youthful and radiant.  It’s the perfect weapon to slay scaly dragon skin!!!

Qyksonic ZOE 3-in-1 Sonic Beauty Device - $199
Cue the song Good Vibrations by Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch (yeah that’s right we’re bringing it back…)  Less than a year ago I had never used a sonic beauty device, and now I absolutely SWEAR by them!!!  Of the multitude of ones I’ve explored, Qyksonic ZOE 3-in-1 Sonic Beauty Device is the only skincare device that cleanses, massages, and applies skincare products (most competitors don’t don’t do the last one).  Bam!  Zoe’s advanced Silicone Brushes work at over 6000 pulsations per minute to gently cleanse and exfoliate the makeup, dirt, and oil that clog your pores and cause acne, while eliminating blemishes and minimizing the signs of aging.   Bam!  Benefits include: provides complete facial and body sonic cleansing, delivers next-level micro-firming circulation massage, minimizes the size of pore and wrinkles, exfoliates without irritating your skin.  Bam Bam Bam!  “Feel those good vibrations.  Come on Come on!”
Pur Cosmetics 4-in-1 Lip Duo Single 4 Tonight - $20.00
The best way to combat Twilight colored skin is with a kickass red lipstick!  (With the AMAZING name of Sing 4 Tonight)   Bright coloring to pop that skin and plus never having to choose between matte and gloss again!  Pur Cosmetics creamy 4-in-1 Lip Duo with a high-impact matte liquid lip stain and nourishing oil treatment.  The highly pigmented lip stain contains creamy shea butter and coconut oil that helps it glide on smoothly for a transfer-resistance finish that lasts all day long without fading.  Plus, the matte lip stain gently plumps lips for a more defined pout and the lip oil is enriched with agave, sunflower, jojoba and cranberry oils to ensure that lips maintain moisture and a high shine.  So don some lipstick and get ready for Team Edward and Team Jacob to fight you off!!!

Vitals Protein Collagen Cream - $29
Beauty is an inside job.  In winter (really all the seasons) your skin texture depends not only on external treatments, but also on your food intake.  Collagen is the protein that your body relies on to ensure the health and vitality of your skin, hair, tendon, cartilage, bones, and joints; pretty much everything that connects our body, keeping skin tone and joints strong, needs collagen.  But our modern diets lack the collagen that was once abundant in foods effecting our hair, skin and nails, and joints, ligaments and tendons as we age.  Enter Vital Proteins Mocha Collagen Creamer featuring healthy ingredients served alongside 10 grams of collagen peptides sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine.  Rich in healthy fats from organic coconut milk, their Whole30-approved Coconut Creamer is completely free of dairy, soy, carrageenan, gluten, artificial sweeteners, and added sugars.  Virtually flavorless and odorless, mix it into your smoothies, coffee, or other beverage.  Viva the collagen revolution!!!

Treat Yourself Energizing Sugar Coat - $35
One of the hottest beauty products on the market are hemp based beauty products.  Hemp and cannabis (aka medical marijuana) both derive from the plant species Cannabis sativa.  In case you’re unfamiliar, hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant that contains less than .3% THC.  The CBD based beauty company Treat Yourself has created a transformative Sugar Coat that sugar-y scrubs with all the benefits of Manuka honey (UMF16+) mask infused with full-spectrum hemp oil and a 5 spice anti-inflammatory blend to provide softer, clearer looking skin.

Tailored Union Socks  - $16
You lose most of your body heat through your head and feet so you should tailor the latter in absolute style!!!  Tailored Union is a curated luxe brand focused primarily around exclusive artist based sock collections.  Yes this article of clothing may be covering up your footsies, but they are also a bespoke piece of clothing; the ultimate in refinement.  Along with your classic socks, Tailored Union is making head weaves for their sheer socks with sandals.  Perfect for those chilly SoCal winter nights! ;-)

A Girl's Gotta Spa! Energizing Citrus Salt Scrub - $32
Remember those old school cartoons where there was a Saint Bernard with a bottle of medicine running around the arctic?!?  Well that is what A Girl's Gotta Spa! Energizing Citrus Salt Scrub does with the impending doom of alligator skin!  There's a reason this female owned indie beauty brand is always selling out on Amazon!  This scrub does a hat trick by exfoliating with purifying Dead Sea Salt, clarifying with green tea extract, and hydrating with avocado oil.  The Energizing Citrus Salt Scrub is: 100% natural Vegan featuring citrus essential oils of pink grapefruit, orange, lemon and lime.  It’s the ULTIMATE Rescue 911 for your skin!

So Fresh So Clean Green Tea Wash-Off Mask - $8
So Fresh So Clean Green Tea Wash-Off Mask is like have a super hydrating whipped frosting on your face (in the best way possible!!!)  A mud based mask that releases a warm sensation (‘cause we can all use warm in the wintertime!) that reaches into pores dissolve and dislodge the build-up of impurities.  And then there’s the Aloe Vera and Vitamin E to help moisturize, moisturize, and moisturizer!  So frost your face away as it’s sooooooo fresh and sooooooo clean! ;-)
