Winter is coming and as painful as it may sound it's almost time to whip out your long winter parka. As a student in one of the snowiest cities in New York, I have learned that winter is not a joke. Don't let your skin suffer from the harshness of winter and stop spending a lot of money on products that don't actually work.

Here are 20 products that will keep your skin glowing through every snow storm.

1. Nügg Deep Hydration Moisturizing Face Mask 

If your skin is feeling dry, flaky or dull this is the best face mask to help rehydrate and smooth out your skin. I swear by it.

While it is important to moisturize your skin during the winter you don't want to over do it and cause breakouts. This moisturizer has cucumber juice to help calm red skin, salicylic acid to prevent blemishes and shea butter and yogurt to prevent flaky skin.

7. Éminence Organics Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant with Lactic Acid 

Exfoliating is key when it comes to keeping your skin healthy and glowing but over exfoliating can be harmful towards your skin.

This oatmeal and Shea butter body wash is great for sensitive and dry skin. It gently cleans your skin without being too harsh and dring it out.

11. Function of Beauty Customized Shampoo and Conditioner 

I recently just started using this new customizable shampoo and conditioner and I can honestly say that my hair has never been softer. How it works is you take a quiz about your hair and then tell them what is it you want to work on about your hair. It takes five minutes and has made my hair shinier and softer than any shampoo at CVS has. Plus you can choose what scent you want!

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
