Extreme facial, anyone?
Say hello to pepped up skin.
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.
La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Levres, $14
