The winter months are harsh on any skin, the rain, snow and wind leaving your complexion dry and cracked. I’ve always been in a good routine with my skin, for my eczema, but even more so this time of year! My current night time routine soothes and hydrates my skin and allows it to repair overnight so I wake up refreshed and ready for the day ahead!
I start my routine with my Body Shop Chamomile Cleanser or Dermalogica Ultra Calming Cleanser and Soap & Glory Cleansing Tool to remove all my makeup and dry skin that has built up throughout the day. I’m careful to ensure I don’t use anything too rough on my face as my skin is super fragile, and both these products are gentle and work well to prepare my skin for the other night time products I want to apply.
I then apply my Body Shop Oils of Life Serum. I used to use this in the morning but found that it took a long time to soak in, and wasn’t the best base for applying makeup. The serum smells delicious and adds a lot of moisture to my skin, it is also one of the few products like this that doesn’t irritate my skin, especially around my eye area.
Finally I add my Eyewake Face Cream (GIFTED), it’s super hydrating and luxurious, it’s almost like I can feel it repairing my skin as I sleep! I use the Dr Botanicals mask once a week as it’s a great product to soothe and hydrate your skin, I always wake up with my skin feeling plump and soft!
I also try and remember to pop on a bit of lip balm too, as my lips get so cracked in the winter months!
It’s important to remember that this is a routine that works for me and my skin type, and that it might not work for you! I’d love to know what products you use in your nightly routine, especially those good for dry skin. Leave me a comment below!
