As many of my followers know, this year I have taken my skincare routine more seriously. So, I'll be honest, one of the toughest parts about colder weather is taking care of my skin. Since humidity is low, it has taken me awhile to find what products to use to help protect my skin from red irritation ahead of time. After trying many skincare products, I have found the right ones that work for my sensitive skin and want to share with my followers what products I am currently loving!
OK OK now, I present.....my top 6 go-to winter skincare products!
1. Benefit Moisture Prep Toning Lotion
This moisture Prep toning lotion allows my skin to maximize the use of my moisturizer, while purifying, and smoothing the skin with aloe leaf and yeast extract. I notice this really helps reduce my red, irritated skin once it gets colder out! I use this every morning in the winter time.
2. Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Pure Retinol Express Smoothing Eye Mask
Friends...we are not getting any younger. Especially in your 20's, it's so important to continuously stay on top of moisturizing to prevent wrinkles. Winter time is even more important because the climate is not in our favor. Let this bad boy soak into your skin underneath your eyes to help prevent wrinkles!
3. Miracle Water 3-in-1 Tonic
I love this product to help brighten, balance and purify my skin with anti-aging treatment to reduce signs of lines and wrinkles. Perfect for all skin types, I use this after I clean my face every night before bed.
4. Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
My go-to (even in the summer time)! I am OBSESSED with this lip mask. I try to put this on a few nights during the week before bed - I love waking up with the softest lips! For best results, I highly recommend exfoliating your lips with a lip scrub exfoliator and then applying the lip sleeping mask on.
5. Arbonne Gentle Daily Moisturizer
My friend Nicole from high school reached out about Arbonne products, and I fell in love with their Gentle Daily Moisturizer! Weightless and refreshing, this helps my irritated winter skin by balancing my skin's PH (which regulates how my skin creates needed moisture throughout the year) and I don't notice any redness and discomfort as it gets colder and drier out.
6. CeraVe Moisturizing Cream
My allergist recommended this lotion to me because of how sensitive my skin was in the cold weather while she was trying to test me for different allergies last year! I use this on my arms and legs twice a day in the winter (OK sometimes once a day if I forget a second time) to help keep my body moisturized.
