As I write this story, I notice something. “UGH” I think to myself, “My hands feel so dry it’s disgusting.” And winter isn’t coming. It is here.
To battle the harsh winter weather, there is one thing every girl needs: a multi-tasking beauty balm. It’s, you know, a multi-functioning product that does everything… and more. From combatting split ends and gross cuticles to softening dry hands, feet, knees and elbows, it’s your perfect travel companion. Elizabeth Arden’s eight-hour cream kinda started it all. It’s been around forever, so you know it’s good. Created by Ms. Arden herself, the formula protects and hydrates skin for up to eight hours. Pretty cool right? Well, except for the fact that her version isn’t so clean…
Follow Ms. Arden’s lead and add something multi-purpose and clean to your routine. Below, shop my all-time favorite beauty balms worth celebrating. These you don’t need to feel guilty about using. Not only are these babies powerful, they’re pretty natural too. I just wouldn’t recommend using something so often without being mindful of the ingredients. (Remember — whatever you put on your skin gets absorbed right into your body. I have my friend Tata Harper to thank for that knowledge.)
Theses are the best in the biz. Apply away, girls!
