The winter season invites big change – New Year’s resolutions are set and colder weather means your skin is craving the right nourishment. In this post, we focus on beautiful skin, inside and out. Since skin absorbs just about anything we put on it, why not go for the purest and best? And then take a fresh look at makeup with the season’s new palette overseen by the wise eyes at Pantone.

1. MyChelle’s Daily Defense Cream SPF17 (all skin types)
Your winter skin could use a moisture boost from beta-glucan, a dab of Hawaiian micro-algae to reduce fine lines and zinc oxide for sun protection. One cream, one application.

2. Organic Glam Luminous Antioxidant Foundation
The new season’s palette of bold neutrals and jewel-bright colors only works with a flawless complexion. Here, mineral pigments correct imperfections in buildable layers while antioxidants help protect skin from pollution and free radicals.

3. Josie Maran’s Argan Eyeshadow Quad
Versatility is key here with a palette that goes from day to night and works as highlighter, liner and shadow—infused with legendary, lightweight, Argan oil gathered from fair-trade women’s collectives in Morocco. No parabens, no artificial fragrance.

4. Organic Glam Mascara
Five years in production—but worth the wait—the ultimate, natural ingredient mascara curls, lengthens and conditions. What’s in it? Organic aloe, beeswax and Vitamins A, E, and C. And what’s not? Artificial colors, preservatives and fragrances.

5. Modern Minerals Blush
Seven gorgeous options key into this season’s palette, whether you choose an earth color, a lovely smoky rose, or one called “Heaven.” No parabens or phlelates. Apply them with Advanced Beauty Tool® cruelty-free brushes made with no animal hair. (Kinder to allergy sufferers too.)

6. Ilia Tinted Lip Conditioners
As we chew on our lips, thinking great thoughts, let’s think about applying the purest product possible to those same lips. Ilia combines superior color performance with 85% certified organic ingredients that nourish the skin… and help repair them. Colors? Delicious.

7. Scotch Naturals™
Imagine “water” colors for nails. 34 of them in fact. All set to revolutionize what you put on your nails. Our recommendation to rock this season’s palette: Bitter N Twisted, a “brooding black cherry crème.” And now let winter winds blow, no fear…

8. Pop it all in the Alicia Train Case from Ecotools®
Small enough, deep enough and kind enough, this bag designed by actress, Alicia Silverstone, carries essentials in style. Made with natural hemp and cotton, it has a recycled PET lining, and the hangtag is printed on tree-free stone paper.
