To protect your skin from the icy weather this winter, it’s important to keep it hydrated and regularly exfoliate at least once a week. Make sure your skincare routine includes the following products, which will leave all skin types feeling nourished all winter-long.
Start by using a gentle, purifying cleanser to remove makeup and impurities that have built-up on your face during the day. Use a small, pea-sized amount and carefully massage it over your entire face and neck (taking care around the eyes). Keep working it into the skin until you have a lather, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
Coast to Coast Pore Purifying Foaming Cleanser Lilly Pilly and Eucalyptus, $19.95
Follow-up with a hydrating moisturiser that will keep your skin from drying-out. Apply directly onto freshly cleansed skin, remembering to swipe it in an upwards motion for both the face and neck.
ModelCo Soothing Day and Night Moisturiser, $25
If your skin is particularly feeling dry and lacklustre, treat it to a nourishing sheet mask. Make sure your skin is freshly cleansed, then sit back and let the mask do its work. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then apply any excess moisturiser to your neck and decolletage.
Indeed Laboratories Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Mask, $29.99
To give your skin an extra boost of hydration, follow-up the moisturiser with a serum. Apply it all over your face, or just to those troublesome areas such as the t-zone.
Philosophy ‘No Reason To Hide’ Multi-Imperfection Transforming Serum, $75
Finish off your skincare routine by applying a heavy duty lip balm to combat dry, chapped lips. One of our favourites for winter is Cicaplast since it helps to repair lips without leaving a sticky residue.
