Winter Refresh As Seen on CT Style

It’s that time of the year where we could use a little refreshing to our routines. It’s still cold, a bit dreary and spring is not yet on the horizon. But there are some little things we can do to liven things up! I stopped by CT Style to share some of my picks to help you reinvigorate, renew and refresh for these remaining weeks of winter.

A refresh for our bodies

The winter can certainly be a rough time of year for our skin, which is why some hyaluronic acid really helps when it comes to keeping our bodies moisturized and nourished. I love the OLAY Cleansing & Nourishing Body Wash and Nourishing & Hydrating Body Lotion, both infused with hyaluronic acid. This powerhouse ingredient is known for its capacity to attract and retain water.

The OLAY body wash infuses moisture 10 layers deep to help hydrate the skin throughout the day without leaving a coated feel. It’s also approved by the Skin Health Alliance, so you know it’s a good choice.

The lotion visibly replenishes the skin, delivers deep moisture, and locks in nourishment for all-day hydration.

I love how this duo from Olay Body packs a dual punch of hydration- first nourishing my skin while lathering up with the body wash, then, my skin continues to feel moisturized even after I step out of the shower as I apply the body lotion. 

Another change-up for our bodies I like to think about is deodorant. This time of year, we’re often going from the bitter cold to blasting heat, so we need something to keep up with our bodies’ needs. Secret Weightless Dry Spray provides 48 hours of sweat and odor protection and goes on with an instantly dry feel, with no waxes, alcohol, or residue. It also has a re-designed fragrance experience for freshness that lasts and comes in pretty scents like Wild Rose, Vanilla, Waterlily and White Peach. The ergonomic grip bottle is well-designed for easy, targeted application so you get less cloud and more product where it’s needed most.

Help for our winter hair

It’s so important to give our hair a little TLC at this point of the winter, and I love how Redken’s Acidic Bonding Concentrate Leave-In Treatment gives you intense repairing benefits for your healthiest looking and feeling hair. This treatment is formulated with 450-degree heat protection AND Redken’s patent-pending Bonding Care Complex. That combo gives you hair that’s instantly ten times smoother as well as 88% less visible split ends in one just one use. It also protects and repairs hair at multiple levels- the cortex, cuticle and end. What’s great about this winter refresh is that you can use it after your existing haircare routine for instant bonding benefits OR try out the entire Acidic Bonding Concentrate System for enhanced results.

Refresh your winter style

A little style refresh is a great little mood boost, and there’s nothing like personalization and monogramming that brings an extra bit of joy. I love the curated collection from The Monogram Corner– a small business, owned by a mom of three who has a beautiful eye for style. You can choose from personalized items for men, women, babies and children, and the home. I love the monogrammed appliqué hand towels for a powder room refresh. The stylish navy quilted tote bag is so easy to wear and great for on-the-go moms- it holds a ton! For the kids, you can’t go wrong with a classic hand knit sweater or hat, which both come in a variety of colors and motifs.

A winter getaway to switch things up

Many of us hit this part of winter itching for a little getaway, and I found a great gem in the Poconos that’s perfect for an easy road trip. Ideal Stays is a group of locally owned short-term rentals in the Poconos, and really the perfect place to enjoy quiet, tranquility and natural beauty, just a short drive away.

The two newest properties they have are The Iron Elk Cabin and The Ridgedline, both just a few minutes from Jack Frost Big Boulder ski resorts. Both of these properties sleep 10, and each has beautiful amenities like newly renovated kitchens, tranquil grounds, coffee bars, game rooms, fire pits, hot tubs and more.

They’re in walking distance of private community lakes with a beach, playground and tennis court, so they make for a great little getaway for you and your family to enjoy some skiing or peaceful winter scenery- or really any time of year!
