It's almost the most wonderful time of the year. The warm breeze will soon turn brisk, snow will blanket the ground and our once double-digit weather will go below zero. For most Canadian's, winter is a time we all dread - the mental preparation for dealing with the cold is not a fun one, but it's something that we all have to deal with.

As the seasons change, so do your routines; however, this doesn't just mean swapping your leather jacket for your winter jacket. The products you use for your hair, skin and body can potentially undergo some temporary changes - but that's the price we pay for living in a cold ass country and it doesn't have to be all that bad.

Here are some products that will make winter 2016 a little more manageable.

1. Beauty oils for that hair

Don't you hate how dry your hair gets during the winter? You can moisturize with hair conditioner all you want, but sometimes it doesn't help with the why-does-my-hair-feel-like-straw feeling. Get yourself some essential beauty oils for your hair so you can avoid looking and feeling like a hay stack in the Sahara desert.

2. Moisturize, moisturize AND moisturize your lips!

If there's one thing I absolutely hate during the winter, it's how fast my lips get chapped. One day you forget your lip balm, you start licking your lips and... well, you're caught in a pickle now. Dry, painful, red tender lips - this doesn't have to be you. The Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment nourishes your lips and repairs any damage that the winter has caused. You can pucker up confidently, even in the middle of January.

3. Foot therapy treatments!

Yes, it's going to be another 8 months or so until you can comfortably wear your open-toed shoes and sandals again. In the meantime, grab your boots and grab a pack of these - you'll need it. These bad boys will help your feet be baby soft, even during the harshest winter.

4. For when your face is feeling thirsty, Clinique's got you covered.

Providing up to 24 hours of relief, this ultra-hydration gel cream limits your chances of dry, flaky, tight skin. Nobody has time for skin that isn't on fleek, so send that smooth hydration my way.

5. Get yourself a creamy facial cleanser as opposed to a foamy one.

With that being said, using a product like Lancome Galatee Confort - Comforting Milky Creme Cleanser, helps your skin adjust to the colder and drier weather that winter gifts us.

6. You'll also need a good eye cream.

The same rule applies: creamy based products are the answer for winter. As we all know, the skin around the eyes is much thinner than anywhere else, so it's important to moisturize and hydrate in this area too. Not only does this product smooth and soften skin, it also helps brighten your tired eyes and encourages elasticity of the skin - well needed for those gloomy, cold and snowy days.

7. Nourish that hot bod with some shower milk!

With a name like that, who wouldn't want to treat themselves to a warm, hydrating shower?

8. Water-proof Mascara.

Wet, blowing snow is the worst. All that time spent applying mascara to make your lashes look #flawless for them to end up wet and smearing black is just annoying. Invest in some waterproof mascara and eyeliner - don't be a victim of wet snow.

You can buy it here.


9. Shimmery Eyeshadow

Since the holiday season is soon approaching, it only makes sense to own a shimmery eye palette.

You can buy it here.


10. Cream Blush

If you haven't noticed the trend, cream-based makeup products are key for the winter season. It is ideal for dull looking skin in the winter, helping to give you that enhanced look.

You can buy it here.


11. Stock up on some dark lip shades

If there's any time of the year to embrace dark lips, it's definitely now. You can still work it, even during the harsh cold.
