A Case Of Winter Skin

The weather has been so erratic lately but if there is one consistency then it has to be that it's freezing outside! Now as a person who has oily skin, I didn't think winter would mess up my skin too much, and in previous years it hasn't, this year however my face feels dry, flaky and just dehydrated. So I decided to take action! If you also have a case of winter skin, keep reading...

Exfoliate
So to keep those dry patches away, I've been using the Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Facial Pads (12.95/60 rounds) and that actually has been doing the trick. These pads chemically exfoliate the face and so I wipe one cotton round on to my face at night and wait a few minutes before proceeding with the rest of my skin-care. This actually helped my skin be less dry, but also less congested, I've noticed that my pores are smoother and frankly, cleaner. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a product to refine the texture of their skin and also exfoliate on a deeper level!

Moisturise!
I went out purchased the Indeed Laboratories Hydraluron Moisture Jelly (£24.99/30ml), once I realised my current skin-care just wasn't cutting it. I absolutely love this product, it is a gel based moisturiser that just sinks into the skin like a serum, this was the shining product that got rid of my dry patches completely and so I would fully recommend this to everyone! I proceed with my normal serum and moisturiser on top since this product has hyaluronic acid and so it will retain the moisture of everything you put on top of it! I love the packing of this product, it's very hygienic as the product gets pushed out the container and it's easy to control how much you want to put on!

All-Nighter products
The Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II (£70.00/50ml) is a serum that I have been playing around with the last few months and I have to say, I love it. I wear this product in the morning and in the night, I find that it instantly plumps up the face, getting rid of that flat, dry skin that comes with winter! It's a nice product to use before makeup and it does work magic at smoothing and refining the skin. Again, anyone would benefit from using this! 
Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate (£37.00/30ml) is no stranger to this blog, I love this night oil, it works magic overnight. If you have problematic, sensitive skin I think this is a product to use as it really calms down the skin and it's just a joy to massage on. Since this is oil based, it's quite rich and moisterising and so is must have for these crazy climate! This doesn't exacerbate the oil I already have and so this is a product which will really help those with both dry and oily skin types!
I have to say, these products are helping my skin to adjust to the winter weather! I would love to know what skin-care items you love and would recommend, so leave me a comment below!

  2. I have the Nip + Fab pads too and prefer to use them every other night as I find them a little harsh on my skin - they definitely do the job though :)

    1. I get what you mean, I have sensitive skin too, I've found that if I use half a pad every night it works too! But if not then every other night is good too! You have just got to see how your skin is feeling! x
