Have you been watching the news? Superstorm “Bering Bomb” is upon the US – and I heard some states will see temps drop by 40 degrees or more! It’s time to take care of that skin of yours! As Aveeno Ambassadors, Make Her Up has some great tips for keeping your skin nourished this cold winter!

It’s November, which means the onset of colder temperatures and the start of National Healthy Skin Month! As temperatures and humidity drop, unpleasant changes can start to affect your skin. Your facial skin can become vulnerable, especially if you tend to suffer from redness and dryness. That’s why it’s important to follow a winter skin care regimen specifically to care for your facial skin.

In celebration of National Healthy Skin Month, dermatologist Dr. Lisa Chipps is revealing a few simple tips to keep your complexion looking its best this month and all winter long!

· Both morning and night, cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser like AVEENO® Ultra-Calming® Foaming Cleanser. Its gentle formula will help prevent over-drying or aggravating sensitive skin.

o If you wear make-up try AVEENO® Ultra-Calming® Makeup Removing Wipes to gently remove dirt, oil and makeup before you go to bed.

· Moisture is essential during the winter months. After you wash your face, gently pat it dry and immediately apply a good moisturizer to prevent moisture loss. Be sure to reach for a moisturizer with a SPF of 30 or higher. SPF is always important – yes, even in the winter! This helps to protect against aging skin concerns, sunburns and skin cancers caused by UV rays reflecting off of the snow and ice.

· And last, but not least, general health and well-being promote great looking skin year-round. Eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, drink plenty of water, sleep – seven to eight hours daily, and manage your stress for a beautiful, healthy looking complexion.

AVEENO® offers a wide range of products to meet your winter skin care needs. Click here to view a full range of AVEENO® Face offerings.

Behind The Scenes: Brooke Burke-Charvet’s Cover Look for New You Magazine

BEHIND THE LOOK: BROOKE BURKE-CHARVET on NEW YOU magazine’s Spring 2014 cover on newsstands now
Celebrity makeup artist Spencer Barnes and hair stylist Paul Norton explain the natural, fresh Spring look they created for the Dancing with the Stars host

THE INSPIRATION:
“For this look I was inspired by Brooke’s radiant personality. Brooke is warm, light-hearted, playful and kind. So I wanted her look to be fresh – yet defined. I played up her natural beauty by choosing colors that were more neutral and complimented her complexion.” – Spencer Barnes for Solo Artists. Spencer’s clients include Amy Adams, Amber Heard, Jessica Biel and Olivia Wilde.

A prominent Spring makeup trend, natural and nude faces softened up the Spring 2014 runways at shows including Alexander Wang, Balmain, Jean Paul Gaultier and Chloé. A neutral look allows for the clothes – and the woman – to take center stage.

HOW TO GET THE LOOK: HAIR
“Brooke’s look for her cover shoot was intended to look healthy and shiny. First, I applied Oribe Gandioes hair plumping mousse to dampened hair and tousled dry also using a medium sized round brush to round out the ends of the hair. I then took a couple of random sections throughout the hair and with a 1 1/4 inch curling iron bent the hair back away from the face and I then used Oribe Shine Light Reflection spray to give the hair a nice luster and shine. Lastly, I had Brooke flip her head upside down and I ran my hand throughout her hair and broke up the hair bringing much more life to the look. I then sealed the deal with Loreal Elnett hairspray and we were able to begin shooting!” – Hair Stylist Paul Norton for Tracey Mattingly, who has worked on celebrities including actresses Robin Wright, Brit Marling and Elizabeth Banks, among others.
