We hate the thought of ourselves walking down sixth avenue, straining our face as we battle the ice cold wind. We feel our skin shrivel up as the moisture is lost, and we pray we've packed moisturizer. It's a wonder why we get wrinkles so easily. The problem is if you have makeup on, like most of us, it's impossible to reapply during the day. That means your routine the night before and in the morning should be able to get your skin through the day, or at least until you get home. 

It's been a few weeks since the cold front started coming through, so there's no excuse not to be prepared at this point. We've put together a complete routine for you, featuring our favorite products, tried and tested.
