Kyle and Ashley in winter skin care eye masks!

It is time to start caring for your winter skin! It’s officially winter at the BE headquarters, and it is showing no mercy! From surprise snow squalls to wind that feels like an ice block to the face- it is clear Mother Nature is not here to play. It is just the beginning of the winter season and it is a perfect time to start your winter skin care routine! Start now, make it routine and stay ahead of the drying weather to come. No one wants crocodile skin and cakey makeup this winter, am I right?

“Great makeup starts with great skin care.”– Kyle

Winter. The snow, the ice, the wind. In all it’s beauty, winter takes a toll on us- from our static cling hair to our dry skin. It’s Tuesday and BE is here to save the day! Here are a few winter skin care tips to keep Jack Frost from nipping at your nose and leaving you dry all season long. Cause really, it gets annoying.

1. Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen! This is our number one Winter skin care tip because it is important! The winter sun is just as damaging as the summer sun. You may be shaking in your Uggs and freezing your face off, but those sneaky little sun rays can still ruin your day. Because we are human, let’s make this as easy as possible. One step. Follow this link and find the best moisturizer/untitled-designSPF combo for your skin type- Thank you to Elle Magazine. Once you choose  your moisturizer with SPF, use it every single day. All winter long. Right after you exfoliate- hop down to our second tip!

2. Exfoliate. Help your skin get rid of those old, dusty cells! If there are too many dead cells camping out on your face, the moisturizer/SPF you are using so diligently (right?) won’t work. It won’t be able to penetrate through to your skin. One of our favorites is the Lush Ocean Salt facial exfoliator. Bring a little beach vibe into your shower all winter long!  Don’t stop at your face, use an exfoliating body wash too! Keep your skin silky smooth and healthy all winter long!

3. Drink Water. Put the cocoa down. Step away from the cocoa. As if you didn’t already know this, we are here to remind you- DRINK WATER. Drink lots of water. Guys, I’m not kidding- when you think you’ve drank enough- drink more.  Have you seen Jennifer Anniston lately? She’s 47, looks 25 and it’s all thanks to WATER! Without adequate water intake, skin can appear dull and wrinkles and pores can appear more prominent. No thank you!  Water can also help curb breakouts. It’s a miracle serum, that is also free. We know…water can be totally boring.  But you can spice it up by adding a lemon, or a lime, or any other fruit. The BE office staff’s personal favorite is Mio. A teaspoon of Mio helps the water go down, in the most delightful way.


Bonus: Your hair needs help too! For hair that is standing on its ends, sticking to your face and driving you insane-try our leave in conditioner. Often people associate leave in conditioner with the summer months, however they are a real gem in the winter as well. Ditch the drier sheets (cause you all now you’ve tried that) and throw in some BePrepped Revive. BePrepped Revive strengthens, smooths and detangles without adding any weight. If only the rest of the holidays could treat us so nicely.

If static cling isn’t your issue- but dry hair is- just know that half of the population who is currently pulling their hair off their face envies you. We can help with that as well. BE cures the dry winter hair blues with some BePrepped Revitalize Shampoo. In the winter, the pores on your scalp close up nice and tight because they are cold. However, when these pores are closed for the season, your hair is not getting any of its natural oils. Revitalize helps those pores open back up so your hair can moisturize itself! Like its supposed to do!

Get yourself a good exfoliator, throw on some lotion (that includes SPF), drink some water and tell Jack Frost to get lost! These winter skin care tips will help your skin glisten for all the right reasons!

Having a little color makes us confident! However, we all know to stay away from the tanning beds and apply our SPF to keep our skin smooth and problem free.

Thankfully, there are alternatives to keep our glow all year long without sacrificing our health. 

The Professionals:
Many salons are starting to offer spray tan services. Beauty Entourage has experts who have perfected the art of layering that perfect color. The major benefit to having a professional apply the product is the even effect. With at home products you run the risk of missing spots or over-applying. Always make sure you exfoliate all over before a faux tan to avoid and streaks or splotches!
“It takes contouring to the next level. When we use the air brush we have the ability to make shadows and highlight areas so you look more toned. We can make you a bronzed goddess!” – Brittany Backman
A key point is to make sure you know what to expect. The color develops in the first 24 hours and will start to fade with showering and using products, especially loofas and towels. 
“I recommend getting your airbrush tan at least 3 weeks prior to your wedding or event to make sure you like how it looks” – Carly Allen
By testing your tan early, you can guage how light or dark you want to go. You can then calculate the perfect day to have your color applied so you feel confident and flawless on your big day. Beauty Entourage uses Norvell Spray Tan products and air brush.
Step on in!

At Home:fake bake flawless self tanner
With so many DIY products on the market, it’s hard to know what is going to come out looking orange. We recommend Fake Bake Flawless Self-Tanner if you’re looking to apply on your own. This tanner has a product for your body and face and the application mitt makes it easy and mess free. Make sure you have someone around to tell you if you miss any spots!
