6 Herbivore Exfoliating Mask
Give your skin a little love with an exfoliating mask that softens the skin and leaves it nourished to boot. The rosehip powder in the mask regenerates skin cells and repairs damaged tissue, chamomile flowers soothes and depuffs inflamed skin while the pink clay rejuvenates and improves skin’s elasticity. Apply this once in one-two weeks for an obsession-worthy glow.
7 Hylunia Exfoliating Face Scrub
Winter means cold air outside and hot and dry inside, which results in dead skin pileup causing flaky and patchy complexion.
As the mercury drops it is very important to exfoliate your skin once a week to ward off any clogged pores, blackheads and whiteheads. We love the natural grape seed face exfoliant from Hylunia. It dissolves the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin leaving it soft and radiant while maintaining its pH balance. So buff away dullness and reveal a bright and perky complexion.

8 Pür Minerals Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean your skin does not need protection from the sun. Even when the weather looks gloomy the harmful UV rays penetrate and damage your skin. We love the four-in-one tinted moisturizer from Pur that blocks UV rays, gives you a smooth complexion and hydrated skin and adds a radiant glow by renewing your skin. The fact that this sunscreen is packed with retinol is a bonus as it helps mitigate acne, increases collagen production and has proven anti-aging benefits.

12 This Naturally Organic Lip Exfoliator
Winter is synonymous with chappy lips and sometimes using lip balm every hour and even drinking gallons of water doesn’t help.
The best way to get rid of dry and chappy lips is to exfoliate them. Exfoliating ensures your lips are just as smooth during colder days as they’d been on warmer. While the easiest way is to mix sugar and olive oil at home and exfoliate it with a toothbrush, but if you need a quick haul then this organic lip exfoliator from This Naturally is supper effective. It’s shea butter and jojoba oil will give your lips extra moisture and care.
This Naturally Organic Lip Exfoliator for $13.75
