As the weather is getting colder, it’s getting harsher on our skin. Therefore, we need to step up our routines. But, at this time of year, I personally think less is more. Therefore I will only be using three products. Yes, THREE products.
The two main parts of keeping your skin clean in the winter period, personally in my opinion, is washing and keeping moisturised. You may, or may not have seen the recent hype (especially on tiktok) about cleaning your face with Dove bar soap.
The Dove soap is amazing if you haven’t tried it, definitely give it a go. It’s about £1 for two soaps. All you have to do it’s clean your face with it twice a day. I did this for about five days before I saw any results.
The other part of keeping your skin clean in the winter period other than washing your face, is to keep it moisturised. I would not suggest to mix up your moisturiser if you have got a good one already. My personal favourite is the Neutogena Refreshingly Clear Moisturiser. It smells amazing, like grapefruit to be exact and it feels so good on my skin.
I also feel like you cannot get through the winter months without a lip balm or you get super dry lips. My all time favourite lip product has to be the Classic Carmex, I just love the tingle feeling so much in the cold, it just feels like it’s actually working and is actually doing something for you.
It’s always good to keep up self care, so in the winter months it’s a good idea to adapt your self care around the colder weather. I love a face mask, but you want to be gentle to your skin at this time of year, so the face mask I tend to use the Revolution Feed Your Face Watermelon Mask. It’s so good at keeping your face hydrated. I would definitely recommend!
What are your favour skincare products in the colder months? Do you agree that less is more, or do use more products in the cold?
