The harsh winter months can dry out your skin, but luckily there are several products that can help ensure your survival! There are a few beauty essentials that I simply could live without, and these are two beauty products that I ALWAYS have with me, especially throughout the dark, cold wintery months.
The Elizabeth Arden cream, created in 1930 by Elizabeth Arden to soothe skin, was an instant success and is considered by many to be a beauty classic. What makes it so effective is a combination of petrolatum, a skin-soothing beta-hydroxy in one of its first cosmetic uses, and vitamin E. The name and eight hour claim, came about thanks to a remarkable performance - a loyal client used it to treat her child's skinned knee and "eight hours later" the skin was all better.
The Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour cream is a cream you can use for pretty much anything and it helps sooth, restore, calm and help relieve chapped, cracked, dry skin, as well as soothing roughness, redness and minor skin irritations.
The Elizabeth Arden lip protectant is a lip balm enriched with emollients, protective sunscreen and vitamin E, moisturizing, softening and smoothing lips.
Both products are available at most drugstores, and may cost more than your average lip balm or skin cream, but are most definitely worth it!
