Winter skin and hair saviours from Moroccanoil, Korres, Dial and John Frieda!

The cold weather wreaks havoc on every exposed bit of me (and even some bits that aren't that exposed)! Luckily there are all kinds of great products to help combat and even prevent the damage:

Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Treatment - 100ml -$27 - an innovative skin rescue treatment infused with antioxidant rich argan oil and naturally replenishing botanicals - including organic chamomile water, organic sunflower seed oil, Vitamin E derivatives and glycerin - for dry skin, or skin that is affected by seasonal change. This technologically advanced formula is a gel that melts into a warm, soothing oil, penetrating deep into the skin for ultimate healing and relief. Skin's elasticity is restored and is left softened and soothed. 

As great an intense moisturizer as it is, what I like best about it is the scent - a lush honey-lavender aroma meant to awaken the senses, while organic chamomile and oil infusions calm irritation and inflammation, leaving skin condition noticeably healthier.

Use it 1-2 times per week concentrating on rough, dry areas, such as the elbows, knees and heels. It can also double as a bath or massage oil and can even be used on hands to help strengthen nails and soften cuticles.

Available at luxury spas and fine salons across Canada including Quartz Crystal Spa (Trump Hotel Toronto), The Spa at Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, Spa Vida (Sheraton Wall Center Vancouver), Victoria Park Spa (Montreal) and The Spa at the Four Seasons Toronto. 

In the winter my skin goes from being combination/oily to combination/dry which means a change of moisturizer is in order. And while I need a bit more moisture, I don't want anything too heavy or greasy feeling and this one is the perfect balance:

Korres Greek Yoghurt Moisturizing Face Cream - 39ml - $42 - an 83.6% natural, ultra soothing, non-greasy cream that brings immediate hydration and comfort to dehydrated skin with skin soothing, moisturizing yoghurt which provides a natural source of proteins, minerals and vitamins to instantly nourish dry, stressed skin.

Available at select Shoppers Drug Mart locations. 
Add some moisture in the shower and you won't have to slather on as much body cream:

Dial Triple Moisture Ultra Moisturizing Body Wash - 473ml - $5.99 - with a creamy formula that delivers 3X more moisture than regular Dial with a rich blend that infuses skin with shea, jojoba and mango butters to leave it feeling moist and luxuriously softer after each wash as well as beautifully scented.

Available at drug, grocery and mass retailers including Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart, Loblaws and Jean Coutu.
Cold air turns my ends into little bits of straw and even though this serum is meant to protect from heat, it also does a great job of protecting and correcting from the cold:

John Frieda Full Repair Perfect Ends Deep Infusion - 50ml - $14.99 - smoothes and protects medium-textured hair damaged from high heat. Contains Inca Inchi , a lightweight, micro-oil rich in omega-3, absorbs into worn-torn strands instead of just coating the surface. Weightlessly reverses the look and feel of damage on lengths and ends to leave hair smooth, shiny and full of body. Also helps protect against breakage from heat styling and is safe for colour-treated and chemically-treated hair.

Available at drug and mass retailers.
