5 Skin Care Products to Get You Through Winter

Lauren Wax

I've worked in beauty PR for over 10+ years on some of the biggest brands in the hair, cosmetic, skincare and wellness spaces. While I love cosmetics, and am currently working for an awesome makeup brand, I am true and loyal skin care junkie.

I love trying new brands with beneficial skin ingredients and am most interested in products that hydrate and preventively help with aging. Not anti-aging, but pro-aging! It's all about being the best version of you, while also having glowing skin.

Here's some products I swear by and highly recommend especially as our skin becomes dry and chapped during the winter months. These are on the pricey side, but will last you 3-6 months if not more, so they are definitely worth the investment.

Joanna Vargas Daily Hydrating Cream


I've used this moisturizer religiously for the past 8 years. It's a clean formula that is super lightweight. It also hydrates skin for a youthful appearance and smells delicious. It doesnt have SPF, so I'll usually wear a tinted moisturizer with SPF on top of it.

Indie Lee Squalane Oil


Another brand I have been using for years, but this product is one that I keep coming back to. This intensive moisturizing oil contains 100% Olive-derived Squalane that leaves your skin feeling soft, nourished and best of all, never greasy.

Tatcha Violet-C Radience Mask


I LOVE this mask! It's a creamy formula packed with two types of vitamin C and AHAs from seven fruits that unveils softer, glowing skin. It helps fix dullness, uneven skin tone, dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles. It's also purple, so you'll look cute when wearing it!

Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Gel


I should probably do an entire post about all of the SkinCeuticals products that I use because they are all pretty awesome. This gel serum is one I've been using for years. It's oil-free and replenishes moisture and restores radiance for a smoother complexion

$83 at SkinCeuticals.com

Laneige Sleeping Lip Mask


I put this lip mask on before I got to bed everynight. It comes in a bunch of flavors, but berry is my favorite. It's great for dryness and finelines and moisturizes for smoother, more supple lips overnight.

A Wickedly good Restaurant Opens in the West Village

You do what self-taught chef and restaurateur, Zod Arifai did. With plans to open his newest restaurant, Wicked Jane, on April 7th, he was put in a tough position. He clearly could not open the restaurant in the way that he had originally planned and had to be creative when it came to his opening strategy. Lucky for New Yorkers, Chef Zod decided to open Wicked Jane despite the difficult road ahead. Wicked Jane is located in Greenwich Village, an area usually bustling with foot-traffic. In “normal” times, it’s the perfect place for a new restaurant to open, some might argue, but because of the pandemic, the streets are pretty quiet, at least by New York standards. Despite these setbacks, Chef Zod was able to open a beautiful restaurant with delicious food. Those brave enough to venture out to the village, will be captivated by the new addition to the neighborhood. Whether it’s the deep purple and blue velvety chairs, the checkered tile floor or the sheer aromas from the kitchen, your curiosity will strike, as you make your way into the outdoor patio for some cocktails and delicious food. Wicked Jane serves a menu of Modern American small plates. From the fresh heirloom tomato salad with peaches to lightly cooked salmon with ginger, grapes and daikon, the aromas and flavors are unmatched. The tables are wood with fresh carnations on each, bringing the ambiance of fine dining outdoors. Here's what we got!
