Even though I have oily skin, when the colder months come it can get very dehydrated. I thought I would share with you some products that I go to at this time of year to keep my skin plump.
The Hydraluron Serum is just a great product to help hydrate your skin. It is a very light serum that you put under your moisturiser. It contains hyaluronic acid which is amazing for the skin as it holds 1000 times its weight in water.
I then also use the Antipodes Divine Facial Oil at night. This contains Avacado Oil and Rosehip which is great for scarring and for nourishing the skin. I love using oils as it feels like your giving yourself a real pamper and they are just great for all skin types.
Carrying on with oils, I love using cleansing oils. They remove make up easily and do not give you that tight feeling like other cleansers can. At the moment I have just started trying out the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil which I am really enjoying. I usually use the Mac Cleanse off oil which I adore. Both products you apply to dry skin and massage in, you then remove it with a flannel.
My lips get very sore and dry in the winter and I have found two things that have really helped this year. My lips have been cracking at the side of my mouth and its made it really uncomfortable to eat and drink. I was recommended to use the Blistex Relief Cream as it is a medicated lip cream. This has transformed my lips, I apply it every morning and night and it does tingle a little but it really helps to keep my lips nourished. I have also started to take Vitamin B Tablets as apparently cracked lips is a sign of you lacking in Vitamin B. I have been recommend to try this by several people so I thought it was worth a go. I haven't been taking it long but I am hoping it will help to prevent the my lips cracking in the future.
Lastly, hands. I have spoken about the L'Occitane Hand Cream recently but it really has become a firm favourite. My hands get horribly dry in the winter, they look like old lady hands and this hand cream has really helped to keep them moisturised.
I'd love to know what products you use to help your skin in the winter?
