Full of omega-3 oils that hydrate and soften the driest of skin, this face balm from Province Apothecary can help heal everything from rosacea to eczema. It’s an absolute must-use winter-skin restorer. (provinceapothecary.com, $76)

Hair raiser

Hair raiser | Sheknows.ca

Add a little zing to your morning routine by washing your locks with this refreshing 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner from Dove. Infused with caffeine and menthol, it will leave your scalp feeling tingly but your hair exceptionally clean. (well.ca, $3)

Extreme exfoliator

Extreme exfoliator | Sheknows.ca

Made with oatmeal, pumice and oat bran, this is one of the best all-natural soaps anyone can use to slough away dry, dead skin cells. Use it in the shower once a week (apply a bit of moisturizer after to amp up its skin-smoothing effects). (kiehls.ca, $17)

Dude deodorant

Dude deodorant | Sheknows.ca

If you’re the kind of gal who sweats a lot or would rather avoid some of the overly perfumey scents of traditional antiperspirants, this classic Old Spice product is for you. It provides 24-hour odour protection and works particularly well on gym days. (amazon.ca, $3)

Rockin’ razor

More and more women are starting to use men’s razors, largely because they provide a closer, cleaner shave. This razor is a particular favourite because of its rotating head (you can run it over bony areas without fear of nicking your skin). (amazon.ca, $10)
