Morning Skincare Routine for Winter
It was 15 degrees a few days ago, and then I woke up yesterday with snow on the ground and outside it was -10 with the windshield. So I guess winter as abruptly arrived. I’ve noticed the past week or so my skin has already started drying up in anticipation of the cold weather. With every new season I try to change up my skincare routine, during the summer I need more oil control whereas during the winter I need more hydration. I actually use way more products during the winter than the summer, so I’ve spilt my winter skincare routine into two parts: morning and night.
Here’s my morning skincare routine for winter time:
I wake up and one of the very first things I do is wash my face with this cleanser from Delia Organics (review of it here). I love using this cleanser because there is a subtle citrus scent to wake me up and it’s gentle on my skin.
While I let my skin dry (I never pat dry with a towel) I put in my contacts and then apply this eye cream. I recently was gifted this from Delia Organics. Before I was using a drugstore eye cream. I love this because it’s super lightweight so you don’t feel it at all. I’ve noticed it helps keep my concealer on longer without creasing.
Yes, this is the same moisturizer I mentioned in my last skincare routine! I’m still obsessed with it, I think I’m on my 4th one. It hydrates my face and dries quickly and my makeup goes on so smoothly.
After I brush my teeth, I always apply this lip balm. It was also mentioned in my old skincare routine! I’m actually about to run out of it, but I love this lip balm because it keeps my lips hydrated all day. Although now winter is here I’m definitely going to have to buy a second one to keep in my bag.
