Say Goodbye to our sis, Ash…

It’s that time of year again and we at There She Glows feels your pain. Your lips are chapped, hands are ashy, and your face is cracking as you read this blog post! We know, we know, we know; you feel hopeless and just… dry! Fear not, There She Glows is here to save your day with these 3 easy Winter tips that you can start today!

Tip #1: Say bye to an ashy face— Use a heavier (non-surfactant) cleanser.

Since your skin is already lacking moisture during the cooler months, you don’t want to further strip it of natural oils with strong foaming cleansers. Foaming cleansers tend to have harsher surfactants, or those things that break down dirt and oil. By implementing a cream based cleanser you are killing two types of ashiness with one wash. 1) dryness. 2) dehydration. Check out our IG for a breakdown of the difference between the two.

Try There She Glows’ Cleansing Balm & Mask  (2oz, $22)— A luxurious, silky, water-soluble micro-emulsion that provides a professional spa quality cleansing experience. It is recommended for combination and normal to dry skin types. This product gently melts, dissolves, and washes away heavy make up and impurities without stripping away natural oils. With the addition of water it becomes a gentle milky cleanser that rinses away clean to leave the skin feeling calm, supple, and refreshed. It also helps emulsify and remove waterproof make up.

Ingredients: Natural Glycerin, Avocado, Almond, Apricot and Olive Oils help infuse moisture and make the skin feel not only clean but incredibly soft.

As a cleanser and make-up remover, apply a quarter-sized amount with dry, clean hands to the face and neck and around the eyes. Massage gently in a circular motion until balm melts. Slowly add warm water and continue massaging thoroughly to transform the balm into a milky emulsion. Rinse with warm water. Close eyes and spread over lashes to dissolve mascara. Emulsify by adding warm water, then rinse thoroughly. Can be used alone, or as a pre-cleanse before other cleansers. As a mild cleansing mask treatment, apply a small amount onto dry skin and let remain on the face for 5 minutes. Rinse well with tepid water.

Tip #2: Say bye to ashy knees & elbows— Eat More Fat

We know you are probably thinking that we are crazy right now but just keep an opened mind. Eating more foods with omega-3s, which includes basically everything in the fish family: salmon, sardines, anchovies, sablefish, and halibut can enhance your inner glow! If you can’t do this, you can take fish-oil capsules instead. During the winter season, you should avoid drinking too much coffee because it’s a diuretic, and alcohol because it accelerates dehydration.

Tip #3: Say bye to ashy lips— Make a scrub

What do you do when all the potions in the world aren’t enough to conquer winter’s cracked and chapped area? Before calling it a lost cause, consider exfoliation. Similar to the body, our lips needs exfoliation. Exfoliating the lips 2-3 times a week can help balms and ointments penetrate deeper into the lips. Be mindful however of open wounds and cut, do not over do it with scrubbing manually and allow this DIY scrub below to do all the work!

 Prep Time 5 minutes
 Cook Time 5 minutes


  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

  • 1 tsp honey


  1. Combine ingredients in small jar, stir until mixed.  Apply a small amount to your finger, and gently rub into lips.  Continue rubbing gently for 1 minute, then rinse with warm water.


All in all…

DO NOT let this be you this winter!!! Follow the tips above and find peace of mind in knowing that your skin is happy, healthy, & hydrated!
