Winter is probably the roughest season on skin — cold, dry air and  sharp winds do not make for a happy  complexion. And considering that  your skin is your body’s largest organ, we think you’re obligated to pamper it during the harsh winter months. As temperatures dropped to almost 15 degrees here in New York City, we turned to our in-house DIY beauty guru, Erica  for a simple but effective recipe to boost both the health and the moisture levels of our skin. Never one to disappoint, Erica show’s us, and you, how to ‘treat yo’ complexion for a chap-free winter.

I love the winter, but sensitive, fair complexions — like mine —  don’t mix well with fierce chills and low temps. During long stretches of cold weather I try to apply a super-hydrating face mask at least once a week — DIY style, of course. Whipping up a rich, moisturizing facial treatment is a lot easier than you think. In fact, between your bathroom and your kitchen,  you probably already have all the ingredients you’ll need! More >
