Winter Skin Regimen; Step by Step
As somebody with dry skin, I always try to change up my skincare regimen twice a year; taking more care to moisturise and exfoliate during the winter months. Today I thought I’d show you the products that I use to take care of my skin and a little step-by-step of my nightly regimen. *WARNING* There will be multiple photos of my naked, un-made face. Proceed with caution!
First up, I’ll list the current products that I’ve used. I’ve done reviews on nearly all of them, which I will link to also.
-Decleor cleanser and toner duo – link
– Naked Skin Bare Faced Cheek Face Wash
Step One: Cleanse & Tone
In the first picture, I have a face full of slap on. I apply Decleor’s cleansing milk on my skin, rubbing it in on some areas to shift the makeup. I then use a chunk of cotton wool to remove the cleanser, rinse my face, then use another bit of cotton wool to cleanse my face (photo 2) with the toner.
What I love about Decleor is that their products are really mild, yet effective and so can be used on the most sensitive of skin.
My erotic ‘toning’ face. Am I turning you on? Of course I am. LOL
Step Two: Re-Cleanse with Sonic Brush
I then use Naked Skincare’s Bare Faced Cheek face wash to give my face the once over to take away the last traces of makeup. I only do this step if I feel like I have to be extremely thorough. At this point, my skin would be quite sensitive so I only use the brush for around 30 seconds.
Step Three: Rinse & Moisturise
I then wash my face with ice cold water and then mix the Antipodes face oil with the 12 hour moisturiser.
I’ve recently been adding Rosehip oil to the serum for a little anti-aging kick. In the evening, I do like a over-moisturise my face so it can really sink in and make my face soft when I sleep. Lovely!
So, this is the finished result; a fresh, albeit slightly oily face for bed time!
How do you change up your regimen for Winter? What are your go-to products?
