As the nights are drawing in, each morning is becoming colder and colder by the day. I am having to cling onto my winter coat and scarf to battle the weather now that we are getting into Winter. Around this time it can seem a bit of an unconvince to spend a lot of time at night or in the morning have to do a skincare routine when all you want to do is just stay in your warm bed for those few more minutes.
Once we get into every season I tend to tailor my skincare routine to that particular time, whether it be nice and warm or cold and icy. I am going to be sharing with you today the routine I go through day and night to help protect my skin from the cold.
First: Cleanser- in the morning I tend to use the Garner Mineral Oil Infused Water £3.99 on offer!, this is a new take on their most loved Micellar Water. I will be posting an in-depth review on this next week but so far I'm impressed with how quick this works. If you want efficiency oils are the best thing to use, they scrape dirt and makeup off your skin within seconds which for someone who has just woke up in the morning and is just looking for efficiency, this is a good go to product. However for the nighttime, I tend to use a deeper cleanse. This is just for personal preference I take a little bit of the Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser £3.29 and massage it into my skin and then using a hot cloth I press this onto my face and wipe away the product which not only removes my makeup but deep cleans my skin. For my eye makeup I do prefer to use the Garner Oil infused water as I find it isn't harsh on my eyelids which have become rather sensitive this past month.
Next: Treatments, in the morning I tend to skip this part as it can take a bit of time for any of the creams I normally use to sink into my skin. But I do take a bit of E45 Dry Cream £2.35 and pat this around my eye area. Like I said previously my eye area has become really sensitive recently and this just helps to moisturise and repair that area ...
