With Winter setting in you’re probably already seeing the symptoms of the season such as the dreaded dryness and flakiness that consumes us during these cold months. To keep your skin looking its best it’s important to find a skincare routine that works for your skin type – it’s a matter of (careful!) trial and error.
During winter, it’s best to keep your skincare routine to a minimum as using too many products can dry out your skin more than it already might be. Cleansing and moisturising is enough to maintain a healthy glow on a day-to-day basis, but 2-3 times per week it’s a good idea to give your skin a little more TLC with an exfoliation and a face mask to rid your skin of any dirt in your pores.
We’ve rounded-up some of the better products to use at each step of your skincare routine this winter…
Step 1 – Cleansing
For everyday cleansers, I love Michael Todd’s Cleanse and Tone (available here) and the Foaming Cleanser by Simple. As the name implies, Cleanse and Tone tones out your skin tone whilst clearing pores and removing traces of makeup. Simple (available at Priceline) gives a really clean and healthy glow to your skin which is noticeable straight away. Both cleansers are great and leave your skin feeling silky and smooth.
For a certified organic option, the IVI Organics Gel or Creme Cleanser (available here) is a luxurious winner. Gotu Kola helps to remove the skin’s impurities and Vitamin E strengthens the skin’s barrier function and promotes healing. The IVI cleansers smell great, they gently remove traces of makeup, whilst leaving skin feeling refreshed and supple.
