While the winter months can be cruel for contributing to the fade of your hard-earned summer glow, this season is actually the best time to pinch your cheeks with a peachy pink or warm rose hue via a flush of blush. Instead of looking to pressed powder blushers, which can instigate dry chapped skin when the climate allows, opt to mix up your beauty regimen by incorporating a hydrating formula instead. From gel-based tints to multipurpose sticks, breach out of your comfort zone and try one (or more) of these innovative staples for yourself—you won’t regret it!
