Calling all beach babes! It’s no secret that it’s really (like really, really) cold outside if you’re on the East Coast like we are. If you’re feeling the winter blues, you’re not alone. We all wish we could trade the snow for sand and hot chocolate for a tropical drink right now. But with summer still quite a ways away, we’re going to have to just fake it ’till we make it. While smelling like the beach isn’t exactly the same as sitting on one, it’s a lot easier to achieve. With a little help from these six beauty products, you can experience tropical bliss from your own bedroom.
We’re all craving a little salt, sand, and sun this time of year! This deluxe beach-inspired gift set is the perfect thing to enjoy beachy vibes no matter where you are. The Beach Haus Room Mist, with notes of floral, jasmine, and citrusy mandarin, paired with the Maui Sea Salt Candle will make your space smell like an island getaway, while the Sand Body Buff Scrub buffs away flaky, dry winter skin. Use the Mermaid Salt Glow, made with a blend of Mediterranean, Himalayan, and Dead Sea salts and sea clay, in your bath for a youthful glow.
Cold weather really takes a toll on your skin, leaving it feeling dry, rough, and thirsty. Nourish your skin with this cult-favorite natural body oil that’s like a vacation in a bottle. Just a few drops of the lightweight formula and your skin looks like it’s never seen a day of winter in its life.
Whoever thought you didn’t have to worry about UV damage in the winter is very wrong—sun protection is just as important when it’s cold out. Harmful UV rays are out there year-round and just like it’s important to wear sunscreen, it’s also just as important to shield your hair. This hair oil helps to protect you from harsh elements like dryness, humidity, and UV damage. Plus, it’ll leave your hair deliciously scented of mint and vanilla.
At the end of a long day, or winter, nothing feels better than drawing yourself a luxurious bath. Don’t wait for vacation to pamper yourself. Take a break from the cold and let your winter woes melt away for a little while. This Saturn Detox Bath, made with coconut to deliver intense hydration and mustard seed powder and Epsom salts to draw out toxins, melts into your bath. Relax and rejuvenate both physically and mentally while you soak.
Eau d’Italie Eau de Toilette ($140)
Forget about all of the snow outside and get lost in this fragrance. Made by the famed Le Sirenuse hotel in Italy, Eau d’Italie captures the smell of a beautiful sea breeze off the cliffs of Positano. You’ll feel less like you’re trapped with two feet of snow on the ground, and more like you’re sitting oceanside with a drink in your hand.
If you ask us, avocados are the holy grail of nature. This liquid gold moisturizes both your hair and body, making it a hard-working addition to your beauty regimen this winter. Just a few drops of this Tiare flower-scented avocado oil every morning and night will have you feeling like summer. Plus, it helps prevent stretch marks and nourishes your skin, so you’re ready to see the sun once winter’s over.
