With winter in full force my skin has been crazy dry which has meant I’ve been doing a bit of trial and error with skin care products at the moment. If you skin has been suffering from these drier days read below to find some skin savers!
So for cleanser I’ve been leaning towards this REN Purity Cleansing Balm, it is good for all Skin Types and amazing at removing make up. I also suffer from having sensitivity at times and find that this doesn’t irritate my skin, it actually calms it and leaves it not feeling tight after cleansing. I would defiantly recommend giving this a go if you’re struggling to find a well priced and overall good product.
Then for after cleansing I’ve been using this amazing Serum from Kate Sommerville, it’s the Hydraquench Face Serum. I absolutely swear by this product if you are suffering from dry patches or any areas that are feeling rough or flaking. This is quite a thick serum so wouldn’t recommend if you are oily at all. This has saved my skin over the winter time, it also looks amazing under make up! This product is a bit pricey but it defiantly does the job well.
Finally I finish my skin care routine with a moisturiser, which I recommend all skin types do. My favourite at the moment is the Drunk elephant Whipped Lala Cream. It’s very thick to help combat the dryness of this winter chill, and doesn’t leave a tacky or oily film to your skin like some thicker moisturisers can do. The packaging is amazing it disperses the product out the top in small ratios, leaving the rest of the product in the air tight container and only giving you as much as you need for a face application.
My Favourite masks of the moment are:
Eve Lom Rescue Mask – amazing mask when you need your skin to be at it’s best for the next day. Totally recommend for a last minute requirement!!
Patchology Sheet Masks – Their hydration mask is my favourite as well as their lip + eye masks. Really good for an extra boost in the colder days to make your skin look less dull and tired.
Dr. Dennis Gross – 2 step Hydration mask is so awesome and really funny to use, when you mix the 2 steps together it makes a thick jelly form on your face to best keep the moisture in. You can also place this over your lips for lip hydration which is a cool tip!
Glamglow – GravityMud is good for firming and help to keep your skin in it’s best youthful state. To be honest I just love it for the peeling effect when you take it off. It’s just too satisfying to not love!!
Some times I use an eye cream if my eyes are on the drier side, I haven’t got a holy grail product yet but I have been loving the Eve Nom Eye Cream and the Kate Somervile Goats Milk Eye Cream. Other than that, that concludes my current go to skin care routine for the winter time. All the products are available at Mecca Maxima and Mecca Beauty online. Let me know what you’ve been loving for your skin care at the moment, or if you end up trying one of these products!
