My Six Must-Have Products for Winter Weather

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

Winter has recently arrived in NC, and I’ve got a double whammy fight right now. I’m not only battling age but keeping my dry skin in good shape. Whew, this can be a tough time of the year more mature folks. I’ll have to say I drink a lot of water and that HELPS. I’ve tried to get in my eight glasses of water daily for the last several decades. You know how you always read this, that and the other all the time about to do. Yeah, well, water works. Okay, now on to the other must-have beauty products to fight my winter battle.


I’ve had the same trusty humidifier for years! It keeps on chugging, and I love the soothing sound of it. I turn mine on early in the morning and let it run most of the day.

I do know many people use it at night, but my husband complained of the sound, so this was my alternative. I have to say I don’t feel nearly as dried out (I sound like a plant) when I run my humidifier most of the day.  It’s as SKIN saver!

LimeLife’s Bamboo Renew

If I had a dollar for all the exfoliation I’ve done over the years, I’d be RICH!! Ha! I believe in the power of getting rid of pesky dead skin cells. Why would you want to keep them when you can have smooth skin and get rid of dry skin?

LimeLife’s Bamboo Renew is fantastic for exfoliating the body. Now, I’ve read where some women use it on their face but personally, I’ve not tried that, but they say it WORKS.

Bamboo Renew is a revitalizing body scrub that offers polishing Walnut Shell Powder, Bamboo, and even an essential oil blend that includes Lemongrass, Mimosa Flower, and Litsea. I have to say your skin will feel like silk in the dead of winter!


Fighting off dry and chapped lips during the winter season is nearly impossible. Your lips often pay the price when you hav the coldest of days.

I remember when I was growing up, and we heated with wood. Oh, it felt so good, but I felt fried after being inside for so long. I love wood heat, but boy does it take a toll on your skin. If you’re trying to reduce dry skin on face, you’ll need to have a skincare routine in place.

The must-have product that I use daily on my lips is Aquaphor. It is so moisturizing and really keeps my pucker in good shape. I typically will put a dab on before going to bed and may use it during the day when I’m at home. Best of all it’s CHEAP. I definitely have a wine taste on a beer budget. Ha!!

LimeLife’s Forty Cure Cream

One of the best things about being older is you know what works and what doesn’t, right? Many beauty products have been tried and true over the years, and these are the ones I stick with day-after-day.

Well, since I started LimeLife’s Forty Cure Cream, I’ve been in LOVE. It has to be the richest cream I’ve ever used and smells like pure tee HEAVEN. Check out this article on Forty Cure cream HERE.

It has skin healing properties, and this is why I adore it so! Do you have a loved one or friend with eczema, rashes or other embarrassing skin problems? If so, I’m here to tell ya, and ya’ll know I’m honest, this works.

Nivea Essentially Enriched Body Lotion

I’ve always been a fan of Nivea. I remember using it when I was a teenager! Gosh, seems not that long ago but we both know better.

I started using Nivea Essentially Enriched body lotion a couple winters ago, and I’m BLOWN away with the quality of it. For around FIVE bucks, you can get a HUGE bottle, and it lasts me a couple months even though I slather it on every other day for my dry skin routine.

It moisturizes amazingly for the price. I gotta say I’m always looking for a buy and this is it. I often use the Forty Cure Cream on my arms and chest and this on the rest of my body. Great way to have smooth skin on a budget, ladies.

LimeLife’s Dew Date Facial Oil

Only in the last couple of years have I started using a facial oil and my skin thanks me for it during the winter months. Dew Date is tops on my list and is loaded with essential oils that promote healthier skin and reduce inflammation.

I use this EVERY single night, and it also tightens the skin.  Talk about a WIN WIN!! Do you know this product is ONLY $28 and mine lasts about FOUR months for your skincare routine? I genuinely don’t think a lot of women realize how affordable LimeLife is!

Well, there you go! If you want to stay warm but keep your skin in good shape just put these products in your cart! Heck, all you have to do is click the link because I’ve even done the research for you! Stay warm ladies and let’s chat tomorrow!
