For Blemish-Prone SkinIf you have combination skin the winter can be a strange time as your skin feels drier than before but you could still be getting blemishes. This could be due to your skin being stripped too much of oil and it wants something back! Invest in a facial oil or a great mask such as the Nip+Fab Kale Dry Skin Fix Clay Mask which is great for drawing out impurities without drying the skin as it has an advanced moisture complex. If you have very oily or spot-prone skin then it's a good idea to make sure you clean your skin as well as you can and get rid of anything that could block up pores. Try removing most of your makeup with Garnier Pure Micellar Cleansing Water, this is a great product that dissolves makeup and preps your skin for a double cleanse. Wash your face with a great cleanser such as the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub which is gentle yet purifying and all traces of makeup will be gone. Follow with your favourite moisturiser. A great product for the morning is La Roche-Posay Serozinc Spray as it helps to control shine and gives skin a mattified appearance underneath makeup.
For Winter Body CareWinter can take it's toll on your body even more than your face sometimes so it's important to look after it. Make sure that showers and baths aren't scalding hot as this can actually dehydrate skin and use a hydrating moisturiser such as this Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Lotion to really give your skin some TLC. The winter is also an awesome time to start prepping for your summer body so take a look at this Nip+Fab Body Slim Fix Body Gel which is a daily toning moisturiser which works to refine contours, softens and smoothes skin. Pretty great, huh? Plus this means by the time the warmer weather comes round you can bring out the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Shimmering Dry Oil and make those pins glow!
For Dry & Sensitive SkinWinter is tricky for all of us but for those with dry or sensitive skin it can really be a problem. This is where you need to arm yourself with some amazing products that are going to protect and revive your poor winter-ravaged skin. First up, using a serum is a great step to add into your skincare routine as it's another layer of protection against the elements and another layer of moisture to plump skin back up. I love the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum which removes the feeling of tight skin and leaves skin smooth and refreshed. Follow your serum with a rich moisturiser such as Bioderma Hydrabio Riche or Nip+Fab Dry Skin Moisturiser, the superfood combination of kale, watercress and almond oil is awesome for fighting dryness without overloading skin.
