Winter Beauty Woes: 3 Gold-Medal-Worthy Solves

The 2014 Winter Games may have come to a close, but cold weather is still out in full force. So, until things heat up, we’re taking our beauty cues from figure skater Gracie Gold, who managed to look flawless throughout the games despite freezing temperatures. Here are a few tricks to get you through the next couple of months.

How to Beat Winter Beauty Woes

Protect Eye Makeup
Windchill is never cool – especially when it makes your eyes water and mascara run. To prevent makeup mishaps during cold, windy weather, coat your lashes with blinc Mascara. The best part? You won’t even need “60 strokes” like Gracie Gold.

Restore Skin
A winter athlete’s biggest competition? Dry skin. To relieve irritation, look for moisturizers with oatmeal or aloe. And to beat dry skin for good, try out M.D. FORTÉ Replenish Hydrating Cream. Its soothing combination of hydrolic acid and green tea deserves a gold medal.

Winterize Your Hair
To revive lackluster hair, look to a silicone conditioner (like Dove Intensive Repair Conditioner) that locks down the outer cuticle layer and seals in moisture. If all else fails, a beanie or a slicked back, figure-skater bun are always stylish solutions for dryness and frizz.
