Deserted In The Arctic? 3 Must-Have Skin Care Products

| 0 comments

It’s currently 18  degrees in New York, and the folks at Mario are bundling up (and you know we’re protecting our skin from the elements!). It got us thinking: what would you need, skin-wise, if you were stranded in the arctic?

Most people know the basic essentials to bring when you’re stranded in a tropical paradise – some sunscreen and a skin-type appropriate cleanser and toner to combat dryness or oiliness – but what happens when you’re left to fend for yourself in a dramatically cold climate?

Here are my top three creative picks for beautiful, blizzard-ready skin that will make vacationers none the wiser to your chilling lifestyle:

Self Tanning Lotion Oil Free

Let’s just cut to the chase. I’m already quite fair-skinned, but with cold weather and lack of sunlight threatening to make me truly translucent, I would choose this glow-inducing lotion for face and body to emulate the effects of the sun. If you’re not in need of a bottled bronze, swap this product for one of our other enriching moisturizers.

Protective Day Cream

Wild chills and whipping winds can do quite a bit of damage to the surface of the skin. To stay protected from the elements, this non-greasy formula includes Balsam Peru, which is a soothing botanical that can help protect against irritation.

All Purpose Egg Shampoo

I know what you’re thinking, and no, you cannot use this all-purpose shampoo to make egg drop soup when you miss the convenience of restaurants. Rather, its versatility lays in the fact that it can be used as both a hair and body cleanser, so it’s the perfect two-in-one for quick travel.

Remember, these products would be in addition to the basic cleanser, toner, antioxidant serum, exfoliant and moisturizer I would have smuggled in already. I guess I really can’t choose just three.

What would you choose for your skincare arsenal?

Eating healthy, trying new beauty products and writing personal essays are a few of my favorite things. I can usually be found roaming the magazine aisles of bookstores or sitting at the café compulsively shopping online for shoes, books, clothes, and makeup. If I went to the gym as often as I talked about wanting to start exercising, I would have a 12-pack by now. I believe that having a good skincare regimen and expertly groomed eyebrows are two cornerstones to being naturally beautiful.
