Successful Dallas Women Share 28 Tips for Healthy Winter Skin

They reveal the skin care products, facials, drugstore finds, and at-home concoctions they swear by.

Rebekah Finley

VP at The Michael Finley Foundation

Finley believes in an inside-out beauty approach. “My key to prevent dull, dry skin is hydration. Your face and skin are a reflection of what you are putting in your body,” she says. “I increase my water intake in the winter. It’s a game changer in every way.”

“For a moisturizer, I use certified 99-percent-pure aloe vera gel. I have used all of the expensive moisturizers, but this has really changed my skin. I add CosMedix Pure C to give me a daily glow.”

“I use an SPF 30–50 sunscreen and Liv by kNutek Oxygen Spray daily—with no exceptions—to protect against the sun and prevent wrinkles and discoloration.”

$35 AT AMAZON

“In the winter, my favorite body lotion is from The Body Shop. The World Ethiopian Green Coffee Cream goes on smooth, not greasy, and it lasts all day.”

The lawyer, mother, and investor isn’t afraid to shop at the drugstore and turn to tried-and-true family remedies. “My grandmother—actually, every Indian grandmother ever—swears by pure coconut oil,” she says. “It is truly the hair miracle.”

“The Quench by BeautyBio is hands down the best cream that has ever touched my face. It’s silkier than La Mer and feels like butter on your skin.”

“I go to the drugstore for my body products. I need one that I can go through a lot in the winter that is also cost effective. I’ve been using Burt’s Bees body moisturizers for years.”

$9.99 AT KOHL’S

“For dry lips, I carry Fitish Lip Therapy with CBD. This gem doesn’t just moisturize, but it actually repairs and eliminates the need to use any product at all. It must be the magic of the CBD.”

Taylor Tomasi Hill

Street-Style Star

Taylor Tomasi Hill

The former Forty Five Ten VP and creative director racks up miles jetting to shows and meetings. “Travel really does a number on my skin,” she says. Her answer is a well-stocked makeup bag.

“They suggest using Jao Brand Goe Oil sparingly, but it’s a known fact that cult followers cannot get enough. Bonus: it soaks into the skin quickly and there is never a trace of it on my clothing.”

$149 AT ANTHROPOLOGIE

“I mix Embryolisse Lait-Crème with Advanced Clinicals Retinol body lotion to ‘keep the knees taut’ as per my mother-in-law.”

$28 AT NET-A-PORTER

“I use Joanna Czech’s roller, which is by far the best one on the market. When traveling, it’s often flagged as a weapon in the security line. That’s followed by an awkward conversation about the identified culprit oddly resembling a sex toy. I suggest checking it.”

The event planner sticks to an all-natural regimen. “When I became pregnant with my firstborn, I worked hard to rid my beauty routine of any chemicals.”

“In the morning, I use a few drops each of 111Skin Hyaluronic Acid Aqua Booster and Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum.”

111SKIN HYALURONIC ACID BOOSTER

VINTNER’S DAUGHTER SERUM

“I get photofacials from Courtney Dunavant at House of Preservation, which uses a light to clear redness, broken capillaries, and sunspots.”

For evenings, I’m obsessed with the Rich Cream from Augustinus Bader. It’s worth every penny.”

$265 AT NEIMAN MARCUS

“The Biologique Signature Facial at The Joule is life changing. It’s a perfect reset for my dry skin after a big event.”

MORE INFO

“Sunscreen is hugely important, even in the winter. Every day, I use Derm Institute Cellular Brightening Daily Defense with SPF 50+ and Dr. Barbara Sturm eye cream.”

Fashion Stylist

She’s styled Rihanna and local beauties like Jennifer Karol, so she’s seen her fair share of makeup artist secrets and celeb-approved products. Nguyen opts for clean selections from Vintner’s Daughter, as well as her own homemade products—like face masks made out of egg yolks—to keep her skin flake free.

“I use May Lindstrom’s The Honey Mud mask twice a week, and I exfoliate with The Clean Dirt in the shower once a week.”

$90 AT FOLLAIN

“I mix CeraVe with coconut oil for my skin and use coconut oil on my hair once a month.”

“I do all of my beauty treatments at home. I use jade rollers every day.”

$125 AT NEIMAN MARCUS

“In the winter, I try to stay hydrated and eat lots of veggies. I make lots of homemade bone broth and drink celery juice before breakfast.”
