Winter Skincare

My skin has definitely been feeling the cold after my trip to Sweden and I've had to step up my skincare routine over the past week. I was hoping that dry skin might pass me by this year but unfortunately, that hasn't been the case. Luckily, I've put together an easy and foolproof routine to protect myself over the next few months so read on to find out what I've been using...

Ren Flash Rinse Facial
I'm coming to the end of my Flash Rinse Facial and I really need to pick up a new one. It's not a formula that I would normally go for and it doesn't have the best scent but what it does is so worth it! You rub the gel over your face, work it in with some water which activates the Vitamin C, and it leaves you with fresh feeling, smooth skin all day. 

Lush Body Conditioner
This works in the same way as a hair conditioner, but for the body. In my opinion, it's a great product for the winter because you apply it in the bath or shower instead of when you get out so you don't have to be cold! The smell of this is also gorgeous and it's full of moisturising ingredients to combat dry skin. 

 The Ordinary Advanced Retinoid
I've spoken about this product a few times before as it's my favourite item I've tried from The Ordinary range. I stopped using it regularly after the summer as I heard that Retinoids make tans fade quicker but now that it's October, I don't mind too much! I apply this every other evening before my moisturiser and it seems to do the trick. 

Burt's Bees Hand Cream
Burt's Bees are such a great brand for using in the winter (their lip balms and body creams are also amazing) and I always keep this pot of hand cream close by for when I get home or for before bed. I really like the packaging and it's small enough that I can pop it in my handbag too. 

Vichy Liftactiv Supreme
I've spoken about this cream in more detail (check out my blog post here) and since then, I've been using it religiously. It's a fantastic moisturiser as it's not heavy, sinks in straight away and pretty much gets rid of dry skin overnight. I'll be continuing to use this throughout the winter. 

Thanks for reading :)*
