Since the weather has drastically changed, I have been thinking about products that can help combat and protect my skin against the harsh cold weather. Digging through my draws to see what I have been using last Autumn/Winter I introduce the following products;
Since I don't start wearing gloves until mid December, my hands are always out on show and they feel the cold the most, therefore dry hands. My favourite hand cream for quite a while now is the: HAND CHEMISTRY INTENSE YOUTH COMPLEX HAND CREAM, one off the best selling hand creams in Boots. You get hand creams that sink into the skin but does not fully soften and last throughout the day, but this one does, as soon as I apply the cream I feel the full effects; hydration, smoothness and texture and it smells amazing - like always I can't describe smells haha.
For the lips, I love the DR ORGANIC MORROCAN ARGAN OIL LIP BALM, available from Holland & Baretts, it's a stick of Moroccan Argan oil, infused with avocado and almond in a tube that nourishes, hydrates and also contains SPF, I apply this morning and night, which leaves my lips chap-free.
During the night, after cleansing and applying toner I use: THE BODY SHOP VITAMIN E OVERNIGHT SERUM-IN-OIL, a very well loved product of mine, I have gone through about 10 bottles since it came out. My skins feels extremely hydrated and more plump in the morning, creating a great base for my make-up. I always thought that applying oil on a oily based skin would not work, but I guess it just counter-reacts just like cleansing oils.
Before applying foundation onto my skin, I use the LAURA MERCIER FOUNDATION PRIMER, which helps keep the hydration in your skin throughout the day, December and January is when I break this out since the wind is more harsh and nips the skin. I always come back to this and I have a lot of back-up in my skincare stash.
Lastly whenever my skin is feeling dry and flaky, or when I feel I need to set my make-up, I use THE BODY SHOP VITAMIN E FACE MIST, the fine mist instantly hydrates and makes my dry skin less flaky and also help keep my make-up at bay. This is something I keep in my handbag during Winter.
What changes do you make to your skin?
Until next time.
