Your Winter Skin Care Wardrobe
Published Dec 02, 2011

But don't forget about your face—your complexion needs those extra rich layers just as your body does! Even though we substitute cashmere for creams, it's important to choose rich, nourishing textures all over for winter. Can you check off everything in your beauty closet?
