Winter Skin Care

Our skin is at its thirstiest in the winter months and definitely needs an extra amount of TLC. We all *try* to stay committed to our routines; whether it’s about fitness, work, home, lifestyle or as simple as a skin ritual. BUT let’s be honest after a week, we all end up going to sleep with our makeup on and regret it every.single.time!

We need to use products that keep our skin hydrated and moisturized all day without a lengthy process or a never-ending list of creams and serums. This week, we are rounding up our favorite skin products to keep you glowing even if the sun isn’t.

DON’T WAIT TO EXFOLIATE!

A lot of us forget that exfoliation is key to having a great complexion. Exfoliation helps by removing a layer of dead skin which in return reveals a brighter more younger looking skin. It is best to exfoliate 1-2 times a week with a product suitable for your skin type.

Tulasāra™ radiant facial dry brush  $52  – This brush is available at Aveda and is specifically “designed to sweep away dull surface cells for instant exfoliation”. This really is a game changer in skin care which makes exfoliation easy and fast.
Botanical kinetics™exfoliant $36 – This product will help you get a “smoother, clearer more refined complexion” and it is one of the best sellers designed for all skin types. It is scented with organic lime, geranium eucalyptus and pure flower essence.

WHY JUST MASK WHEN YOU CAN MULTI-MASK

One of the biggest issues in winter is that our skin tends to get dry in different spots while the T-zone still stays oily, so the best way to deal with that is to use specific masks for specific areas. Below is a list of masks that are especially designed to combat all issues in one go.     

 

Pumpkin is the latest in skin care and Bath and Body Works has a whole line of sheet masks that contain pumpkin enzymes and many other useful ingredients to prepare you for those harsh winter days. As always, you can Mix n Match any masks for just 5/$10.

The Body Shop Drops of Youth™ Youth Liquid Face Peel $25 – This dermatologically tested peel gently removes impurities and dead skin cells to keep your skin looking smoother and more youthful.
LUSH Oatfix $9.95 – Skin tends to be extra sensitive and irritated in the winter. This mask is a perfect blend of oats, banana and ground almonds to soften your skin while taking off the flaky and dry parts off.

CREAM BEFORE YOU DREAM

The best time to moisturize your face is right before you go to sleep because it helps keep the product in place for maximum amount of time. Make sure you cleanse your face thoroughly before bed and finish by applying a layer of moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated until morning.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream Sale: $19.20 Reg.$24 – It will not be wrong if this one product is called THE HOLY GRAIL product for winter or actually all seasons. This cream is enriched with Vitamin E which intensively hydrates your skin overnight and leaves it feeling soft and smooth. This can be applied all over your face and is made for all skin types. With regular use, it diminishes the looks of fine lines and blemishes as well.

Its packed with ingredients like rose petal extract, fresh avocado, and calming aloe vera extract. This cream will keep your skin soft and moisturized by improving the texture.
