Winter time comes & my craving for good skin care kicks in! Not that I’m not a skin care junkie all year round but specially in winter my rosacea gets worst & my skin is so dry that I pay extra attention to my skin so I can minimize any kind of makeup.
This products are all my favorites and items that I have been using for a long time! If i ever did cheat on them, I immediately saw how my skin is reacting to it & went back to my original items that I tried & I know they work perfectly.
& now without any further due my favorite products for winter skin care routine…
Starting my skin care with Garnier Skinactive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Makeup Remover & Cleanser. This does not remove waterproof makeup but it does a great job of taking the rest of the makeup specially the foundation off. If needed for removing eye makeup I use the Neutrogena Eye Makeup Remover. After taking of makeup I go in with my favorite cleanser from Cetaphil. I use the face + body one and honestly i like the consistency better than the one for only face. It does a great job of cleansing skin without overly drying it. After cleanser comes the fun part! Just so you know yes I do use all this products! Why? because I didn’t take care of my skin when I was younger & that damaged my skin a lot! So I have to use all these steps if I don’t want to further damage my skin!
After cleansing I use a toner. My 2 favorites are from Mario Badescu. I use mostly the Aloe Vera Toner & only twice a week for an exfolating effect I use the Glycolic Acid Toner. It is very gentle on my rosacea.
Serum became a very important step in my skin care, I recently tried the Clarins Double Serum & I’m obsessed with it! It just makes my skin smooth & my pores look smaller!
as soon as I hit 25 I started using eye cremes. It is very hard to find one that goes well with my skin and does not cause those white bumps(I’m sure they have a name!). I like to use all the products that will smooth my skin since I already have enough bumps due to rosacea. I love this serum from Immunocologie.
For nighttime moisturizer I like to use something thick and very hydrating. I have been using the Mario Badescu Seaweed Night Cream for almost a year now & I love it! my skin does not read to it & in the morning my skin still feels soft!
Last but not least, my favorite lip treatment is a very affordable one from vaseline! It honestly does wonders for my lips! I always wear liquid lipsticks and I never have dry lips thanks to this product!
Skin care is not what worked for me will work for you! I tried millions of products and narrow down to this items. I have sensitive & acne prone skin with rosacea. If you tried any of the products please let me know your thoughts on it.
