Cold Weather Skin Care Tips

 

cold weather skin essentials - Cold Weather Skin Care Tips

As a sufferer of eczema (I’ll do another post on this) autumn/winter can be a tough time in London. The weather currently is a mixture of cold wind, autumn sun and annoyingly dreary days. As you can imagine this is a recipe for dry skin. Below I’ll provided my cold weather skin care tips to help maintain moisture and a dewy glow that I love dearly.

I changed my routine earlier this year because I had dry, and flaky skin. I decided to research my skin woes and I educated myself on the science behind skin products, and more importantly what works for MY skin. I have combination skin so I am oily in my t-zone and dry/normal elsewhere. So here is my magical list that has worked wonders on my skin.

 

MY SKIN FAVOURITES

  1. FACE CLEANSE: Wash with COSRX Low PH Good Morning
  • Low PH – great to protect the skins mantle so that I retain moisture
  • Last for ages
  • Smells a tad bit of Tea Tree but I’m okay with that.

 

  1. FACE TONER: Acid Tone with COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid
  • Perfect for congested skin
  • Adds moisture

 

  1. FACE TONER: The Ordinary, Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2
  • Exfoliates the top layer of your skin so removes those dry patches
  • Gives a healthy glow

 

  1. FACE MOISTURISER: Dr Jart+ Ceramidin Cream
  • Very moisturising
  • Great Korean brand (Koreans are known for their good skin care)
  • Sinks into skin nicely and quickly with no oily residue
  • Perfect for the colder months

 

  1. FACE TREATMENT: The Ordinary, Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
  • High strength treatment for skin blemishes and congestion
  • Help with lightning high pigmentation

 

  1. BODY BUTTER: The Body Shop Hemp Body Butter
  • Perfect for eczema and dry skin
  • Rubs in easily

 

  1. HANDS: The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector
  • THE only thing that keeps my hands moisture. All year round
  • Non-greasy
  • long lasting

 

  1. LIPS: Lano Lips Lemonaid flavour
  • Natural (my preference) and perfect to keep my lips moist with a nice sheen.
  • Very moisturising for my dry lips
  • Only thing that works for me. Mainly because of the lanolin.

 

  1. SUNSCREEN: Cosrx Aloe Soothing SPF50 PA+++ Sun Cream
  • Light on the skin.
  • Protects from UVA and UVB.
  • Good under makeup
  • Should be used all year around for obvious health risks, anti-aging and prevent high pigmentation.
