Dry Winter Skin Cured at the Kiehl’s + Birchbox Event
We’ve learned the hard way that even if we invest in a fancy humidifier and drink tons of water, when it comes to dry scaly winter skin the real game changers are a good moisturizer and a kickbutt serum. We know your seasonal complexion woes, which is why we teamed up with Kiehl’s on Tuesday night to host a New Year refresher event at their posh Upper East Side boutique.
From healthy skin consultations to hand massages, the space was packed with women who looked far more glowy on the way out than they did on the way in. Attendees received treatments with some of our favorite products like the Creme de Corps and the Acai Damage-Repairing Serum.
And products weren’t the only thing getting a test drive. In honor of this January’s theme #mybestyear, we invited BluePrint Cleanse to set up a juice bar for ultrahealthy taste testing. (Officially, we can’t decide if we love the Pineapple Apple Mint or the Cashew Vanilla Cinnamon Agave flavor more.)

You wouldn’t know it from how much we talk about cookies, but Birchbox staffers are a pretty healthy bunch. We love our veggies and mind-clearing workouts, and are always up to try the latest fitness class or nutrition bar. Check back weekly for our Well-Balanced columns, with the latest in food, fitness, and more.
Wellness essentials, clockwise from top left: awesome gear (love my fuchsia New Balance Minimus kicks); fun healthy food (purple cauliflower!); friends (team Birchbox workday workouts); and motivation (my Jawbone UP knows how much I move and sleep).
Every January, gyms and juice cleanses capitalize on the fact that most of us are feeling newly energized and ready to make a change, whether that means losing ten pounds or cutting out refined sugars. The problem is, those changes don’t usually make it past January. Over the years, I’ve made and broken a million resolutions (wellness and otherwise) and I’ve come to a few conclusions: keep your goals small and achievable, build in rewards, and be nice to yourself. Here are some of my best tips for keeping that New Year energy going well past January.
