A Five Minute Fix

Cold weather= fun fashion: cozy cashmere, fabulous furs, soft-as-butter leather boots. But, things are not so glamorous on the beauty front. Freezing temps invite a host of winter woes. Hair is crispy, Face is flaky. Hands and elbows are chapped. Under eye wrinkles become more pronounced. In fact, the beauty lotions and potions used during the summer months are often rendered useless November-April. The good news? A quick fix is often just one product away.
