Did you know that your skin changes with the seasons? And did you also know that the older you get these changes might become more drastic? In the summer months with humid air our skin tends to be less dry and more hydrated. During the winter months our skin generally loses its moisture from the cold air and artificial heating systems.
It wasn’t until recently I discovered that I needed two different skin care regimens. One for cooler temps and another for warmer ones. Since we’re going into the winter months I’ll be focusing on my winter routine.
Makeup wipes – Removes makeup to enhance a thorough cleaning.
Facial wash: Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser – During cold weather, I use this wash for morning and evening skincare. At some point, I might go on the hunt for something a little bit more moisturizing.
Toner: Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3 – I only use this in the evenings since it has salicylic acid to help keep breakouts at bay.
Moisturizer – Lumene Bright Now with Vitamin C SPF 15 (daytime) and Estee Lauder Resilience Life Night
**I often change moisturizers since I have so many samples. The key is to keep the skin well hydrated.
The Body Shop British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask – This is something new I’m adding to my skin care regimen to boost the moisture in my skin to help keep premature aging away. In a future post, I’ll do a review of this product. I want to use it a few more times so that I can give an honest review. But for now, I will tell you that this stuff smells amazing!
With this regimen I’ve noticed that I no longer get those annoying dry patches on my nose, around my mouth and jawline. My skin is hydrated and moisturized which will help to slow down the aging process.
What is your cold weather skincare regimen?
