winter skin care

Thursday, January 22, 2015

let's talk beauty and skin today. the cold and freezing weather does make my skin extremely dry all over. to combat all that, i have an arsenal of products i swear by. keep in mind that these routine change up depending how my skin is acting but mostly, these are what i use to keep them moist and hydrated everyday. 

winter skin care

1 / my current skin cleanser is the gentle purity facial cleanser. it cleanses skin without drying it

2 / i love applying a bit of that cleanser onto my wet konjac sponge. it helps to deep cleanse without overly irritating my skin

3 /  my new favorite lip balm hands down is the malin + goetz mojito lip balm. keeps my lips soft and supple for hours!

4 / i have added an argan oil product to my skin routine. i learned of a great tip to add a drop of this oil on to my makeup foundation before application for a smoother soft focus finish. i also love to mix a drop of argan oil to my toner and pat it directly to my face. instant hydration!

5 / i have read about the embryolisse moisturizer from beauty bloggers and all the rave about is true. it has a slightly thick consistency but absorbs quickly in the skin. i love wearing it under my foundation and i use it as a night cream before bedtime.

6 / i love using a tinted moisturizer, a cc cream or a bb cream in the winter for that added skin care benefits and coverage as well. the it cc cream has medium to full coverage and lasts all. day. long. i suggest you try it!

7 / this shower oil is the last thing i slather on before i step out of the shower. i love it more than applying lotion after. i love the scent and it keeps skin smooth despite the frigid weather.

8 / a hand creme is always a staple in my handbag, inside my car and my desk. this a cult favorite and i have several tubes of them all over the house and in the office.
