At least, that's what I'm doing.
Right now in fact.
What you may not realise is that while this cold wet weather is wearing on your mood, it's also wearing on your skin.
It's an easy recipe for your skin to dull and lose that bright sparkle that comes out so easily during the warmer months with the help of the sun. It doesn't have to be though.
Milk Baby Bath Time Wash $14.95. The way I see it, if it's good enough for my kids sensitive skin, then it's going to work wonders on mine. This is an all natural soap developed by Lindy Klim that can be used on both your body and hair. It's packed with delicious ingredients such as lavender oil, chamomile extract, neroli and jojoba oil making it smell divine. And it's all organic, which is a huge plus for me. It hasn't dried my skin out at all like some soaps can, which is important to look out for, especially in winter.
Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Moisturiser Cream $10.99. This is great if you have really dry skin, but it works equally as well for normal skin. My skin dries out a lot in winter, so much that you can see cracks in the skin on my legs. After having a hot shower and exfoliating I lather this all over my body. It soaks in quickly and I wake up the next morning with my skin feeling silky. I would recommend using this twice daily, but you need to be moisturising all over at least once a day.
Bio Oil $14.99. I don't just use this on scarred or stretch marked skin, but also on places like the pads of my feet, my knee's and elbows, and anywhere else that is prone to drying out badly during the cold months. You know, in addition to helping give a little spring back to my stretch marked places. Let me just say that Bio Oil has a place in every woman's house. It is basically a super moisturiser, in oil form.
Clean & Clear Morning Burst Skin Brightening Facial Scrub $10.99. Ok so I will admit I am loving the new Clean & Clear face products range. They're now packed full of goodies, this particular scrub has caffeine, lemon and papaya, as well as being oil free. My skin is a bit wish washy and I am lucky enough to be fighting the aging battle as well as constant break outs.
We all know to cleanse twice daily, but you also need to add a scrub to your routine using it twice to three times a week to get in there and do a deep clean of your pores helping to prevent any blockages. This is even more important during winter, and the lemon and papaya really help to add a little glow by brightening the skin. Just try it, and thank me later ok?
And don't forget, you still need a light sunscreen, even in winter.
Your skin is the largest of your body's organs. So, what are you feeding your skin?
