I don’t know about you but my skin gets soooo dry during winter. The cold weather and heating just dries my skin up. I have sensitive skin too. So, here is what I use to put my skin to bed.
- Remove make-up
To start with, I always remove my make up. Now, this product was recommended to me by a friend who had heard how good it was and I have to say I am very happy that I listened to her. I use the Cleansing oil, make up remover by Occitane. I bought it for 19€, ok, it seems a bit pricey BUT this bottle has lasted me a year! Yes a whole year! So, for me, it has definitely been a good investment. One pump is enough to melt away your make up with no irritation. You just wash it off and your skin just feels so hydrated afterwards. The only downside to this cleansing oil is that it is not as good with waterproof mascara. But, I highly recommend this product if you have dry sensitive skin like me.
2. Wash face
I bought this face wash with the Occitane Cleansing oil make up remover, it is also from the Occitane brand. It is called Precious cleansing foam by Occitane and I love it! First of all, it is a foam, therefore it is light and does not dry out my skin like most face washes. It leaves my face perfectly clean and refreshed. After hitting puberty, I would often get break outs but since I have been using this product once a day for the past year I have not had one. Again, one pump is enough hence why the bottle lasts forever. This is definitely my must have in winter!
This year, my winter favorite is the Clarins pure and radiant pink clay facial mask. I tend to prefer masks that do not dry up completely because they just dry my skin ten times faster and my face just feels awful. Hence why I love this rose clay mask as it has a creamy texture and it does not dry up or irritate my skin. I use this once or twice a week. This pink clay facial mask is a face exfoliator and a deep purifying mask which leaves skin feeling so soft and moisturized. My skin is glowing and refreshed. Besides, Clarins is probably one of my favorite skin care brands out there.
4. Brush teeth
While I leave my mask to work it’s magic, I tend to brush my teeth. At the moment, I’m just using the basic Oral B toothpaste.
To moisturize my face, I use the All in one, egg mellow cream by Too cool for school. I have to admit, I did not like this product at first. It has a very thick consistency, is a bit greasy and takes a while to sink in but I soon got used to it and love how soft my face feels. It is collegen infused which helps with keeping skin elastic and therefore young.
6. Hands & Lips
I had never heard of Burt’s Bees before I was given the Honey & grapeseed hand cream and the Lemon butter cuticle cream. Burt’s Bees is an American company that makes their products from natural ingredients. The smell is great and it leaves hands feeling so soft, not greasy, which is why I love this product. I hate hand creams that leave your hands feeling oily, I feel the need to wash my hands. The lemon butter cuticle cream leaves nails feeling strong and makes them shine.
I also use the macadamia lip balm by Yves Rocher. I love the nutty smell of the macadamia!
