Here’s a cold hard truth: Winter isn’t pretty. While Olivia Palermo manages to look effortlessly cool in the middle of a polar vortex, the rest of us struggle with static-charged hair, chapped lips, windburned cheeks, cracked hands, flaky scalps, scaly legs, and a generally drab complexion.
Perhaps more irritating than Palermo's snow-time sartorial superiority is feeling like the rest of us mere mortals have zero control over the winter weather that wrecks our skin and hair.
