Winter… I love it… my skin hates it!
Winter is one of my favourite times of year , the crisp icy mornings wrapped up in a cute jumper boots and a scarf, the cold evenings wrapped up, drinking hot chocolate and reading a good book. Whats there not to love! The problem is though, my skin hates the cold. Having naturally dry skin, the cold weather makes it feel tight and sore, meaning that each night I have to do that bit extra to help keep it feeling fresh.
I begin my evening sin care routine by taking my trusty micellar water onto a cotton pad and removing all the make up off my eyes and face. I normally end up doing this twice to make sure there is nothing left behind! The next step I don’t do every night but make sure I do at least once a week. This is my favourite hydrating face mask! This Clarins mask has been an absolute life saver! I apply a thick layer across my skin and leave for around 10 minutes. By the end of the 10 minutes the products has sunk into my skin in all the dry areas and I take a cotton pad and use warm water to clean of the remains.
After doing tha tI move onto my new favourite product! The Lush toner, Eau Roma Water! I discovered this about 2/3 months ago now and after using it every day, morning and night, I can see my skin looking brighter and naturally glowing. The products contain both lavender water and rose water, alongside having a spray top, making it perfect for a quick, easy yet effective step to an everyday skincare routine. Once the toner has dried, I make sure to apply a thick layer of my night cream. The cream that I can currently using is the Super facialist, by Una Brennan, rose hydrate. Not only does this has a gorgeous rose sent but leaves my face feeling hydrated and soft to touch. Finally I apply spot cream to any blemishes I may have at the time. I have used the clearasil rapid action treatment cream for years now, applying it when needs be and by morning the spot has visibly reduced in both redness and size.
I am really enjoying my skin care routine at the moment and can see just how much it is helping my skin. On the odd day where I miss out a step, I can see a noticeable difference, which helps me motivated to follow my routine every evening.
