Winter's cold and dry air can take a toll on you from your head to your toes. Beauty expert Bahar Takhtehchian is here with new products that hydrate nearly every body part so you can stay beautiful all season long.

Problem Area: Face

Whal Myung Hydrating Cream


A creamy, moisturizing face cream is a must during the winter months when your face takes a beating from the dry, cold wind. This one uses herbal ingredients like citrus peel, ginger and nutmeg plus shea butter and olive oil-based squalene to replenish the skin and build its barrier. Plus it feels and smells luxurious so you will love using it day and night.

CeraVe Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum



This serum helps to intensely moisturize dull and dehydrated skin. It features ceramides and a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, which is a humectant that helps with hydration. Hyaluronic acid can actually retain 1000x its own weight in water, so it’s a key ingredient for moisturizing the skin.The serum has a lightweight gel-cream that locks in moisture and leaves skin feeling smoother and softer. You can use it alone or layer it under your moisturizer.

Problem Area: Lips

Lips can get dry and cracked all year long, but especially during the winter. Not only are chapped lips unattractive, but they can be painful as well.

It also contains shea butter, jojoba, essential oils, and bamboo water to heal and revive lips, leaving them soft, smooth, supple and hydrated.
