Beauty Secrets of A French Gal - Winter Essentials

Hello Lovelies!

The following tips are a translation of my own "beauté froide" blog post originally published in French and which you can read here. The products mentioned in this post are available in France and are the ones I use personnally (this is not a sponsored post).

Here are my essentials when the weather becomes colder:

my shea butter - photo, my own.

As it is organic and very versatile, i use a lot of shea butter (and it lasts a long time too!), especially the one called "karité soft", by Melvita (see photo above). It smells faintly of orange essential oil, has shea butter in it of course, but also argan oil which nourishes the skin and is also anti-ageing). Use this shea butter mix on your dry lips, cold feet etc... and on any other very dry area of your body,  hair or face.

tip: with a clean spatula, i also fill a small round tin box with some "karité soft", so i can carry it easily around and apply it often on lips and nails. Plese note that nails are an especially dry and delicate area you'll want to nourish frequently.

on my face i apply... well my skin is oily but still needs moisture esp in winter so i use either organic creams as follows: "soin hydratant jour de monop' bio" or "fluide hydratant jour à l'iris de weleda", which can be found woldwide (look for an Iris scented moiturizing fluid by Weleda) . its a treat! but careful not to apply too close to the eyes, it has a lot of essential oils in it which might irritate your eyes.

as for my natural health, i rely a lot on the careful use of essential oils

here you go, now you know everything about my beauty and health winter secrets!
