Ask the Trend, Winter Beauty

My hair and skin dry out during the winter. How do I replenish moisture without adding excess oil?

You read our minds!

Now that winter is in full swing, it certainly makes maintaining shiny gorgeous locks and a dewy, radiant complexion considerably more challenging. We recommend incorporating an ultra-hydrating face mask into your routine once a week to saturate the skin with hydrating essentials for effective relief.  SK-II facial treatment masks are drenched in vitamins, minerals and organic acids to nourish the skin for a refreshing and luxurious treat. Parched skin will absorb all of its goodness and a soft, supple complexion will be yours in no time.

Two other skin savers to try: Previse's HydroBalm and Lauren Conrad's current must-have, Egyptian Magic. The multi-purpose balm cures just about everything and can be used all over the face, body and hair, too! "I'm obsessed with Egyptian Magic. It's amazing during the winter. I use it mostly on my face and it's replaced pretty much everything else I used to rely on," the star told us with confidence. 

Which lip colors look best on pale skin?

You're in luck! Wine lip colors are all the rage this winter, and this sultry shade happens to look seriously amazing against fair complexions. Follow Anne Hathaway's lead and paint your pout with a deep berry hue all season long for a glamorous effect. The star's makeup artist Kate Lee tells InStyle that she used a customized mix of three Chanel lipsticks to create her signature shade for the Les Misérables premiere, but the same look can be achieved with less effort. One swipe of Dolce & Gabbana's classic cream lipstick in Scarlett and you're good to go! 

What's the absolute best conditioner for long, overprocessed blonde hair? 
—Aleigh Z. via Twitter

We've dabbled with a wide range of deep conditioners, but our hands-down top pick is Tigi's S Factor Serious Conditioner. Not only does it smell amazing, but it's packed with sunflower seed oil for maximum hydrating benefits for blondes (like Jessica Simpson-types) and brunettes alike. Saturate your hair with the mask, concentrating on the ends and leave it on for as long as possible (check your e-mail, do a few chores, catch up with a friend over the phone!) before rinsing out.

Finally, follow up with (my favorite!) Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence Conditioning Spray to smooth and protect hair against breakage and heat damage.

And voila! Gorgeous, glossy locks—in minutes flat.
