“Isn’t it funny that at Christmas something in you gets so lonely for – I don’t know what exactly, but it’s something that you don’t mind so much not having at other times.”, – Kate L. Bosher
In winter it’s in fact quite hard for the one or other to maintain glowy and healthy looking skin! I’m definitely one of those people who have a few issues with their skin when the weather gets colder with time! That’s why I’m going to talk to you about some skincare and makeup tips that have seriously saved my skin in the past few weeks!
As I already mentioned in my latest Skincare Favourites post, I’ve really been enjoying the Caudalie creams, masks and cleansers. For the cold season, I’ve been using the Intense Moisture Rescue Cream every morning, the Moisture Recovery Cream every evening and the Gentle Buffing Cream every other night to prep my skin for the day/night.
Just to make sure your skin doesn’t dry out too quickly due to the changes between cold winter air outside and the warm air from the heating inside, you will want to try and find the right combination of moisturisers and cleansers to use regularly. Your skin will be more than grateful for that!
For masks, I use whatever I have in my little collection that is said to thoroughly moisturise the skin. My skin is acting a little weird lately anyway so I’m glad to use any mask, etc. that promises to calm my skin and make it less dry.
For me, however, the best solution for those skin discomforts is the combination of the Magnitone BareFaced! Facial Cleanse Brush and the Samaya Ayurvedic Skincare Hydrating Cleanser ‘Pitta’!
The BareFaced! is a lovely face brush that gives your skin a very good cleanse, but combined with the very rich cleanser from Samaya Ayurveda, it’s a real dream come true!
On Samaya Ayurveda you can find your ‘Dosha‘ that will then recommend you three products that will suit your skin type and provide everything your skin needs! In my case, it’s ‘Pitta’ and the cleanser is so good! Although it doesn’t smell that great – but not that bad either – it’s become an essential of my evening face cleansing routine!
Together with the cleansing brush from Magnitone, it really is a relief for my skin! Every time after using both of these, my skin feels so soft and nourished! You will never want to miss that feeling again, I tell you!
For my makeup, I only wanted to mention my primer and my foundation. Again, it’s the combination that just seems amazing for this time of year, especially with my skin misbehaving like it is at the moment!
My primer is the El Kadife Papaya Serum from my last month’s Blogger Club DE Box, which is actually not meant to be used as a primer, I believe, but I alienated it and just use it to prime my face. It’s quite sticky when applied to the skin, but when I then apply my go-to foundation at the moment, which is the Catrice Cosmetics HD Liquid Coverage Foundation, it gives the most flawless finish without making the skin look dull whatsoever!
This combination allows the skin to still look glowy due to the primer but to also look flawless due to the great coverage of the foundation!
