During the last few months, I’ve been so busy with the process of moving, spending all my money on furniture, and all my time emailing internet providers that the last thing on my priority list has been my skincare routine. All I can say now is “wow, I’ve been messing up.” After getting myself a serum and thicker moisturiser (something more nourishing during winter), I knew my skin had been missing the attention it was so desperately screaming out for. That first day I could feel my skin lapping up the moisture like I do when gulping down a glass of water after a 5km noon run in January.
Hydration is one of the biggest issues our skin faces during the cooler months – prime example, if you feel like you need to re-apply your moisturiser halfway through the day, it’s a sure sign that your skin is requiring a more hydrating cream and/or nourishing cream.
Find a thicker cream (and get yourself a good hydrating face mask that makes your skin feel like a soft cloud. Chapped lips also tend to flare up around this time – I love using a lip balm at night and I keep it around during the day for any touch-ups, however, I find my lips can become a little too dependent on a balm if used too often. Using it just at night has made a major difference throughout the next day – no added applications needed.
I like to up the nourishment at night, mainly so that I wake up with beautiful glowing skin in the morning, and adding two pumps of face oil does just the trick!
Using a multi-purpose oil also helps keep the dry elbows and tatted arms nourished – or is that just a problem for me?Lastly, don’t forget to drink your water, use sunscreen every day and apply your lotions to the neck as well.
