must-have winter beauty essentials.

Winter, I am so over you. The temps are still cold in Georgia, but I’m willing warmer weather to hurry uppp by getting in fighting form for spring. This means eating cleaner (of course), drinking more water, and sprucing up my skincare routine. Below are four of my favorite beauty essentials.

Crest Pro-Health HD Teeth Whitening System // Yall, this stuff is GOOD…and it’s perfectly safe for sensitive teeth like mine. I’ve never been able to use a whitening system due to sensitivity, but I’ve been using this for two weeks and have had no discomfort. I definitely see a difference in my teeth…and it’s only $10. WHAT.

Shea Moisture Body Scrub // After months of wearing tights, my legs are not in super great shape. Of course the solution for #ashy, dry skin is to exfoliate…but some scrubs can leave your skin feeling raw. This one is seriously moisturizing, though. You slough it on, slough it off, and BAM your skin will feel super smooth with none of the icky gritty feeling that some scrubs leave behind. So go ahead and use this every day if you want – your skin will thank you. PS: I’ve been using it on my hands daily, and I’ve noticed a big difference there, too!

First Aid Beauty UItra Repair Serum // First Aid Ultra Repair Intense Hydration Cream These products work for *all* skin types. The serum makes my skin feel smoother and tighter all at once, and the cream is super-soothing and calms any redness or irritation I have (and that tends to be a lot this time of year!). Together they’re a great one-two punch. Both products are free of sulphates, parabens and other bad stuff.

Let’s face it. We *all* want a perfectly straight, perfectly white smile a la Julia Roberts. L and I are already obsessive teeth-brushers, but we’re ready to take it to the next level. Let’s take a look at some at-home solutions, shall we?

1. Everyday GLO: Coffee, tea and red wine are less than great for your teeth…but we would never ask you to give up your Starbucks or your Barefoot. Instead, keep your smile healthy and white on the go with Everyday GLO. Rub it on after drinking the offending beverages to erase stains, promote healthy gums, and freshen breath. Available at Sephora.

perfect for touch ups.

2. GO Smile: The B1 whitening system (on sale here!) has been around for years. I actually used it in college! Grrrrr, why did I ever stop? This formula produces results in just 10 days. Sold. Again.

easy to use, no-mess tubes.

3. Wine wipes: Hey. We all enjoy a bottle glass of red wine every now and then. We’re not judging…but you might want to take a look at your teeth. Take care of that maroon grin with these tasteless wipes. Cute, right?

Wine Wipes
“wipe that wine off your smile!”

4. Arm & Hammer Dental Care Whitening Booster: Baking soda is key to whitening your teeth. You could go old-school and brush with the stuff in your fridge…or squeeze this Arm & Hammer whitening booster on top of your regular toothpaste.
