As much as I love fashion, sometimes I like to switch gears a bit. Today I want to touch on my favorite accessory which is my skin. For me taking care of my skin is more important than the clothes that I wear. I try to take care of my skin by drinking lots of water, exfoliation, and moisturizing. With it getting colder now, it was important for me to switch my routine for the upcoming winter months. Shea butter and my skin go hand and hand, I always try to use products which contain shea butter as an ingredient. Shea butter is made from shea tree nuts, and is rich in vitamin A, E, F & fatty acids which are extremely nourishing & moistirzing on the skin.
One of my favorite skin care lines for several years has been L’Occitane dating back to my first purchase of their infamous hand cream, which is now a staple I always keep in my purse. I love L’occitane’s dedication to quality & natural ingredients, so I knew their Shea Butter Collection was exactly what I needed plus the collection ranges from body creams to shower oils. For the fall I am using the Ultra light body cream which has a light yet moisturizing consistency, it is based with 5% shea butter and leaves my skin feeling moisturized hours later. On colder days I switch to the Shea Rich Body Lotion, which consists of 15% shea butter but not too heavy and neither of these left me feeling greasy but I definitely felt moisturized. While my skin can tend to get on the dryer side, I know I will need something heavier for the harsh New York City winter, so I plan on using the Ultra Rich Body Cream which provides a more intense moisture with a consistency based of 25% shea butter.
To compliment my lotions/creams, I have the shea butter fabulous oil, & body shower oil for added moisture. I also have the shea butter hand cream, that I keep in my purse when i’m on the go. For anyone looking for a new skin care regimen, I totally suggest you give these products a try. Product details below!

I love reading skincare posts! I will have to check out these products- I always have the driest skin in the fall and winter.
I find the body oil is great for added moisture, I've been mixing it in with the moisturizer

I think you meant L'Occitane 😉 but yes they have the best products for the body.
I heard that this winter is going to be insane. I need to step up my winter skincare routine. Thanks for all of the great recos! I'm going to try the body butter 🙂
Unfortunately I heard the same thing, hopefully that isn't the case because I'm not ready for cold. The body oil is great for added moisture during the very cold months 🙂

I've always loved the smell of Loccitaine products and my first purchase was also their classic hand cream which became my best friend during winter months!! Would love to try that body cream out and see how nourishing it is because my skin is incredibly dry at the moment!Helen xxhttp://helenchik.com
