It feels so good to be back... I've been a bit MIA the last couple of weeks as school and exams took over my life this month. But now that I'm back, since winter is well upon us, I wanted to share some of the beauty and mostly skincare products that my skin can't live without during this time of year. Let's be honest, my skin really struggles during this time so I try to make sure that I dedicate at least 15 minutes of pampering in a week. Hopefully, my skin will thank me later.
With the cold and windy elements, lips tend to lose moisture, eventually leading to dry and chapped lips. The first thing to do is make sure to hydrate your body and drink plenty of water, but if like me, this never seems to be enough, I would recommend the EOS lip balm in Fruit Punch and the Body Shop Hemp Lip Conditioner. I've tried quite a few different lip balms in my time but these 2 are definitely my favourite. You can always find them in my purse.
My current favourite is the Benefit Triple Performing Facial Emulsion. I was given a free 8.9ml sample of this with a recent order, and honestly, I didn't expect much from it. However, from the day I picked it up, I haven't stopped using it. It has got an oil free formula which is perfect for my oily skin. It doesn't feel greasy on my face yet it still helps protect from the sun with an SPF of 15.
When my hands are in need of some moisturizing, I always reach for my Figs & Rouge Rose Berry Shea Butter Hand Cream. This was kindly given to me by best friends as a birthday gift last year. I've almost run out of it and I'll probably be buying it again just for its smell. Anything oily on my hands gives me anxiety but this is non-greasy just as it states.
Don't you just love the feeling of soft and refreshed skin? NIVEA's Pure and Natural Mask Anti-Stress helps me achieve just that. This is enriched with Argan oil and Aloe vera which are known for their beneficial qualities. This mask is perfect for all skin types, giving intense hydration.
Do you have any tips on how to keep your skin hydrated throughout winter? I'd love to know!
