Winter Skincare

Winter Skincare can be a tricky game and vary depending on the climate where you live.  When I lived in the Prairies, my ongoing issue was dry skin.  I can still have some dry skin tendencies, but there is much more humidity out here on the West Coast.  I often get asked by friends and readers if I’ve tried any new products lately that I’m loving, so I figured I’d share the products I use and love with you all.

Moisturizer:
Mereadesso All in One moisturizer ~ Awesome to travel with since it’s both a day & night cream.  It’s packed with botanicals and antioxidants.  It absorbs quickly so I can apply my makeup right away.  This all-in-one also works as a serum, primer and eye cream!  It’s a pretty dang fantastic product.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum ~ I’ve been using this one for years.  It just works.
Coconut Oil ~ It’s not sexy, but it works. I keep a jar in my vanity.  I use it for shaving my legs {apply before you shave}, eye makeup removal {apply it to a cotton wipe}, and of course to moisturize those real dry patches of skin.

Cleanser:
Almay makeup remover wipes ~ The perfect first step for cleansing your face at the end of the day.  Also good on nights where you’re just to tired to do the whole routine.
Philosophy Purity Cleanser ~ This cleanser is light and gentle on your skin.  It’s an awesome all in one cleanser, so it will also remove your makeup and help moisturize your skin.
Dermalogica Daily Microexfoliant ~ This is another long time favourite.  It is a gentle rice based exfoliant with no artificial fragrances or colour.

Blemish Control:
Estee Lauder Clear Difference ~ I’m fortunate that I don’t get to many breakouts, but when I do, this is my zit zapper!

Microdermabrasion:
Rodan + Fields ~ I only recently tried out the microderm abrasion paste and moisturizing serum from Rodan+ Fields.  It left my skin uber soft.  My complexion was soft and pretty too.  My favourite thing was that is was super quick and easy to use.  I totally thought it was going to be a whole ordeal, but not at all.  Just a couple minutes and my skin was gorge!

Obviously hydration is a huge part of skincare.  I try to drink as much water as I can, but in the Winter I love something warm to sip on so I tend to drink a ton of herbal tea.
