Fight the Freeze with a Winter Beauty Routine

Now that Carrie Underwood is engaged to hockey player Mike Fisher, she may need to change up her beauty routine routine for the Canadian hockey season. When compared to the frigid climate of Ottawa where Mike Fisher stars for the Ottawa Senators, the winters in Nashville are almost tropical. 

Here are a few seasonal beauty tips to keep skin hydrated through the coldest days of the season. 

Thicker Moisturizer 

Cool, dry air means daily moisture loss for your skin. Even perfectly applied makeup can’t hide flaky winter skin. Before foundation, apply a thicker moisturizer with SPF to hydrate your skin. Philosophy Hope in a Jar is a lightweight and oil-free formula that can help you look fresh and dewy even on the slopes. 

For severely dry skin, try a face oil like Lotus Face Treatment Oil from Clarins.  Even oily complexions can benefit from ingredients like rosewood and geranium essential oils and lotus extract which rebalance your skin. 

Smoother Foundation
Winterize your foundation by using a formula that smooths on quickly for a healthy, even-toned glow. Bobbi Brown Moisturizing Cream Compact Foundation is blended with ingredients that prevent dehyrdration and moisturize skin all day. A stick foundation, like MAC Studio Stick SPF 15 Foundation, also offers a creamy finish and precise application. 

Warmer Complexion
A bronzer in the winter just may be the answer to warming up your face and eliminating a pale, sallow complexion. Find an all season bronzer like Laura Mercier Bronzing Gel for smooth, creamy application that gives skin a sun-kissed glow. Lightly blend the bronzing gel on the apple of your cheeks and blend carefully for a refreshed and hydrated look. 

Creamier Lip Color
Nothing screams winter dryness more than chapped lips. Wind, air, and sun exposure can leave your lips vulnerable. Look for a creamy lip color that combines rich color and moisture. Chanel Rouge Hydrabase offers high impact colors with a moisturizing finish. The Hydrabase formula with Vitamin E and chamomile protect and soothe dry lips, leaving them soft and hydrated. 

Update: According to the Ottawa Citizen, Carrie and Mike are getting married at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation, a five-star resort in Greensboro, Georgia, about 120 kilometres east of Atlanta. The guest list numbers close to 400 and includes American Idol judges Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul as well as Ottawa Senators players Chris Neil and Chris Phillips.
