Conquering Winter Skin {ft. Tula}

Every winter I have a battle to fight with the super dry Idaho air.  My skin has been known to freak out in all sorts of ways.  I have had it get flaky, peely, and rough.  I am always on the hunt for products that will keep my skin hydrated all throughout the season.  My face is always an issue in the winter.  But this time I learned about a product that I am in love with. Tula Skincare Products are amazing!! I have been using the Hydrating Day & Night Cream for almost three months now and I am so happy with my skin!! I wouldn't just say this about any product, I have had lots of weird reactions to face creams and moisturizers, so when Tula reached out to me asking me to try and review their products, I told them that I would be very honest no matter what.  I am happy to report that I am a new fan and I have found a cream that has helped me keep my skin hydrated and happy all winter long.  I have also been using their Probiotic Purifying Face Cleanser which I also love.  And now that I am a fat and happy- NINE months pregnant, I have been having nightly bubble baths (which are so amazing and totally help with this weird restless leg thing I have going on recently) anyway, when I do get to soak in this glorious bubble bath I like to apply Tula's Exfoliating Treatment Mask. It's amazing and smells ultra refreshing.  Bottom line-- if you're looking for a new skincare line check out Tula!

As for the rest of my bod, being preggo in the winter has made me pay extra special attention to my stretching belly.  I recently posted a photo of my giant belly and was asked what I have been putting on it to keep from getting stretch marks, or just keep that itchiness away that always comes with a growing belly.  For all four of my pregnancies I have used Bio Oil.  I put it on in the morning and before bed.  I have loved this stuff because it keeps my skin soft and I rarely feel itchy! And when I do, I just rub more of this magic oil on my belly and I'm good to go! I read somewhere that the best time to apply any kind of cream, oil, or lotion is right when you are out of the shower and your pores are still open, so thats what I do, the second I am towel dried.  I love this moisturizing cream for all over use.. (minus the face).  And you can get it from Sams Club or Amazon which is super convenient.  For my hair I absolutely love this hair repair mask and i almost always use this oil on the ends of my hair to keep moisture locked in before blow drying.  

Anyway those are my favorites for battling winter dryness! Feel free to share any products you have tried and loved! I always love to learn more about these things! xo
