Well, it’s that time of year again…Winter (insert deep exhale). If I’m being perfectly honest, I’m just not a winter girly. Never have been, never will be. But, with the change in season, comes one of my favorite pastimes, updating my skincare regimen.

Although I don’t do a complete overhaul, I do spice things up a little to ensure my skin barrier stays intact after being assaulted by the treacherous New England winters. With the being said, when scoping out products to add to my routine, they must be: 1. quick, and 2. super hydrating.

I last thing I want on a 5-degree morning is a 10-step skincare routine.

I’ve pulled together my recent December beauty buys and winter skincare must-haves from past years that are quick, easy, super moisturizing, and will leave your skin glowy and vibrant in these arctic conditions.
