Winter Beauty

Hot Products for Cool Days and Nights
By Elizabeth Harris

Rochester skin care specialists recommend beauty items to keep your skin looking great through the winter months.

A must-have for winter! Essence Voluminous Resveratrol Dermal Repair keeps skin plump and hydrated. Packed with peptides and hyaluronic acid, this product can only be found at Essence Skin Clinic.

The Glo Skin Beauty pressed base is a full-coverage powder. What makes this product so great? It is made from minerals and contains vitamins A, C and E. It is also talc free, which helps to keep pores clear and makes it safe for anyone to use. A wide variety of shades can be found at Essence Skin Clinic.

The Aveda Botanical Kinetics Intense Hydrating Masque is oil-free and full of moisture. A thin layer can be applied and left on overnight, or it can be used as a rinse-off masque in the morning. Either way, just as the title implies, your skin is left intensely hydrated. This product can be found at Lasata Salon and Spa.

Another great Aveda product is the Color Balm. It applies like a liquid lipstick but wears like a lip balm, leaving lips moisturized and soft. The best-selling color at Lasata Salon and Spa is the “Camellia Rose,” which is a great neutral nude/pink color that’s perfect for everyday wear.

Another great winter product is IS Clinical Youth Intensive Creme. This powerful formula is clinically proven to hydrate skin for 24 hours and diminish the look of fine lines, loss of firmness and skin discoloration. Youth Intensive Creme can be found at Posh Facial Esthetics.

Everyone needs some great eyeshadow, and Sigma Beauty Warm Neutrals Volume 2 is the perfect palette. It has a great variety of colors, and the warm tones are perfect for winter months. This, along with many other great Sigma beauty products, can be found at Posh Facial Esthetics.

HAIR STUDIO 52 & Day Spa
If you need a foundation that will last all day, this is it! BareMinerals BarePro Performance Wear Liquid Foundation, found at Hair Studio 52 & Day Spa, lasts for 14 hours. It also has SPF 20, which is extremely important, even in the winter months.

Jessica Amos, owner of Hair Studio 52 & Day Spa, says that Dermalogica Power Rich Age Smart has three formulas packed into one product to help keep skin firm and resilient. It can also be used as an eye cream to smooth, hydrate and brighten.
