Winter Skin

Ooookay. So its currently -9° outside (for those of you not living in the Midwest, I’m not being sarcastic) and I have total cabin fever.

My Husband and my son are both sick with a cold. It’s that time of year where even though our humidifier is running 24/7 my skin is totally dull and dry.

I am not a skin care pro. I have average skin, not oily, not very sensitive, but definitely on the dry side in the winter. I get the occasional pimple around the time of my cycle, but mostly I struggle with dullness.

This morning I put my makeup on (despite having no intentions of leaving our apartment) and half way through my face just looked so dry and cakey and horrible. So I decided it was time for some Skin TLC.

I'd love to go get a facial today but the mom guilt has me staying in with my sickies.

Let me break down my solution for dull and dry skin.

(can't decide if I look glowy or constipated)

First, my daily cleanser is Murad Essential-C Cleanser. It contains vitamins A, C, and E and removes environmental impurities as well as makeup. It has a citrus, refreshing scent and is good for all skin types. It leaves my face feeling fresh and clean without feeling overly dry.

This next product has been a huge game changer for me. I do this mask probably once a week. This is the REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask. It helps to restore radiance while reducing fine lines and wrinkles. I put this on my clean face for 10 mins and rinse off with a warm damp cloth. It tingles a little, not much, but that makes me feel like it’s working. It brings my glow back.

Lastly, but certainly not least, this is my ultimate favorite face cream. Its pricier than I would normally spend, but with it being so thick and concentrated, and serving up intense moisture, I only need a small amount of this. I got this tub back in November and still it is over half way full. It smells amazing. It makes my skin so soft and smooth. Seriously obsessed with this.

After these three products my face legit looks so healthy and moisturized, sometimes I don’t even want to put on makeup....until I see the bags under my eyes and decide a little color correcting never hurt.

Anyways I’m not a skincare expert, but these products are my current faves. I am however an expert in hair extensions and if you’d like more info about the method I do check out my homepage for a few videos.

Stay warm
