Living in Texas means getting used to wild temperature shifts. Once in elementary school, I remember getting dropped off for school in short sleeves and coming out to snow beginning to fall with parents lining up to pick up their ill-prepared kids. That can happen in Texas.
Just look at the past several weeks. Temperatures plunged to single digits in North Texas prior to Christmas, only to soar into the seventies and eighties in time for the New Year.
Everyone’s skin pays the price for these wild weather swings. Texas’ unpredictable winter weather makes hydration and skin protection vital. And everyone could use some help.
Here are 10 Skincare Products Built for Texas Winters:
Clinique – Moisture Surge 100H Auto Replenishing Hydrator
Moisture Surge has long been in my own skincare arsenal, but the trusted cosmetic brand has upped the ante with its 100H Auto Replenishing Hydrator that lasts 100 hours. This oil-free, gel-based moisturizer penetrates deep, locking in moisture for an endlessly plump, dewy glow. Plus, it boasts auto replenishing technology that is supposed to help your skin create its own internal water source to continually rehydrate itself.
Cle De Peau Beaute – Protective Fortifying Emulsion
Protective Fortifying Emulsion infuses skin with moisture to protect it from dehydration and UV rays with SPF 22. It creates a great priming base layer which improves the finish and staying power under makeup. It provides illumination from platinum golden silk and adds peony root promoting healthy cell turnover.
