I know I can go on about how the summer in Toronto wreaks havoc with my skin and hair, but I have to say this winter has already done a serious number with its harsh winds and mega dry air.
To combat your winter woes, I have curated the below list of my winter wonders that will help protect, hydrate and restore your skin and hair this Siberian season.

You know the Fab Fam loves us a Canadian brand! Lifance is not only made in Canada, it is 100% non-toxic, natural and organic, cruelty-free and packed with high concentrations of the most luxurious ingredients.
When Owner and Creator, Shannon Lifance started this progressive body and skin care line, her intent was to bring a “new generation of skin care” to the market; one with a “conscious”. That is why you won’t find any synthetic chemicals and fillers, only result-focused ingredients like pure caviar oil.
I have tried their White Caviar Moisturizer, Botanical Stem Cell and Cucumber Eye Cream and their handy Hydrating Cleanser and Make-up Remover. I really enjoy them all – lovely light scents and formulas that treat me skin like the princess it is.
Phytomillesime, Beauty Concentrate $45/150 ml
My hair can easily turn into a static-charged, angsty dry mess when left to its own winter devices. To fight back I’ve been using Phyto’s Phytomillesime – a leave-in protector that hydrates like a boss.
Perfect for colour-treated hair, this adds hydration, keeps my colour vibrant and keeps static at bay. Simply spray onto damp hair after washing, or lightly onto dry hair ends as a daily leave-in product.
FIJI Natural Artesian Water, 50.7 Ounce Bottle, Pack of 12“>FIJI Natural Artesian Water
To combat the weather dip, I often pile on moisturizers and body lotion, but it is also super important we hydrate from within!
Though I am a tap water lover, there are times when tap water sipping is not possible. During these times, I’ve been turning to FIJI Water! With more 100% naturally occurring electrolytes than other brands, this ‘untouched by man’ water originates from volcanic filtered tropical rain – giving FIJI such a lovely smooth taste. Their new 700ml, slim bottle design is a perfect car cup holder fit for on-the-go winter hydration. Sip and pretend you are somewhere tropical.
Mario Badescu’s Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater
LIke their website reads, this Mario Badescu Facial Spray is a Cult-favorite and Makeup artist must-have. I’ve been using this spray for over three years now on the daily and I can’t get enough. Small enough (and priced low enough) to pack in your gym bag, leave on your office desk, and keep in your beauty cupboard, this hydrating spray gives me a dewy glow at all times of the day.
It is a rejuvenating mist infused with Aloe Vera, Gardenia, Rose, Bladderwrack and Thyme. You can mist it onto a freshly washed face, overtop your final make-up look, or spritz it onto your foundation brush.
I’ve added some handy links into the above story so you can pop these into your Amazon cart and be on your way to tamed hair and hydrated skin this winter.
