So I know I only ever blog about fashion. But I feel like, unless your Winter fashion will constantly consist of balaclavas, then every Fashionista needs to take care of their skin. Winter always plays havoc with mine. It becomes dry and dull, so a good skincare regime is imperative to keep it glowing for all the festivities of the season. Herein lies the secrets to my radiant Winter skin.
The first and one of the most important steps in any beauty regime is to cleanse. This Niod Sanskrit Saponins cleansing balm from Deciem helps my skin feel squeaky clean. I use it every other day as I have sensitive skin so it will get too dry if I use it daily
Next up I sweep this Boots Botanics All Bright Micellar 3in1 Cleansing Solution containing hybiscus which is a natural brightener (it's also one of my Mum's favourite plants). This is great to use either in the morning or in the evening to clean your face of any make up or any other residue
I love that Botanics products are people tested and are all made from plant based ingredients
For toning, I then gently spray this Boots Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz over my face and gently pat it into my skin with a cotton bud and let it dry. I love that Botanics products are people tested As it contains rosewater, my skin always feels silky smooth ready for the next step
Which is this little gem, Deciem's The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution. It has a little dropper for me to put a tiny blob on any pesky little spots I find. It dries them right up. I also tend to dab it on my forehead to diminish any blemishes. I leave this for a couple of minutes to let my skin absorb it fully
Then I finish up with The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA moisturiser from Deciem. This is great as it contains Hyaluronic Acid and it is super hydrating without being greasy
Another product I love to use is this The Ordinary Glycolic Acid which I only use once a week as a deep clean. It works as an exfoliator getting rid of any unwanted scales that the cold and harsh winds can create
This Niod Survival 10 is perfect for use with the Glycolic Acid as well as the Salicylic Acid as both products peel off the top layer of skin making it more sensitive to the effects of UV rays and prone to sun damage. It's also great for those days when the Winter Sun is out as it has UV filters to avoid any sunburn.
The majority of Deciem's products are vegan friendly and cruelty free but it is clearly stated on the website and you can always ask a member of staff in one of their stores
Thanks for reading and enjoy your Winter glow x
