City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

The 100mph winds (ok, a slight exaggeration), snow days and freezing temps have turned my skin into a dry, flakey mess. I’m running out of moisturizing options and the more I exfoliate, the flakier my skin gets!

Luckily, “whole”istic skincare brand Cosmedix has a butt-kicking antioxdant moisturizer that not only hydrates, but protects your skin from sun exposure. It’s light enough that it won’t leave your skin feeling oily, but will protect against the suns reflection off of the glistening white snow (a common misconception is that you don’t need an SPF in the winter when in fact the suns rays are just as damaging when reflected off of snow). Coupled with their shea butter enhanced cleanser, my skin is hydrated and flake-free!

BN has teamed up with Cosmedix to offer 5 lucky readers a chance to win their two most popular products, Benefit Clean and Hydrate + (an $80 value). Simply send an email to with “Winter Skin” in the subject line by Tuesday January 12th and be sure to include your name, telephone number and email.
