We all know that taking care of our skin is something essential and even more during the winter time. For many people, the cold winter days bring uncomfortable dryness to the skin of the face. After trying tons and tons of products, I finally found my perfect everyday routine. Investing in good skin care is the best thing you can do which doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money, the most important is how your skin responds to the product. I honestly like to change my routine quiet often, I am not faithful to any specific brand and like trying new ones.
I am very happy today to share with you my current 5 skin care must haves. For all the beauty Junkies, you will have a long article!
CALENDULA DEEP CLEANSING, KIEHLS
The first step for a great skin is to clean it. I am always surprised and chocked to see how dirty can be the skin after an entire day or after removing the make-up. I like this deep cleansing because it cleans very quickly but it is also extremely gentle which doesn’t irritate the skin. Thanks to the #FLOWERPOWER of Calendula!
LOTUS OIL, CLARINS
I use this Lotus Oil only in winter, a few drops before my moisturiser and I feel my skin way healthier, smoother and the most important, hydrated! In winter my skin is dry and I always have a tight feeling. I discovered this product by receiving a little sample while buying my Clarins body cream and I directly fell in love with it. Your bottle will last forever as you only use 2-4 drops a day!
HYDRA BEAUTY GEL CREME, CHANEL
I apply this Gel Cream every morning before starting my make-up. Why do I use a gel instead of a cream? Simply because I prefer lightweight texture for the day and also because I hate waiting before starting my make-up. This is the reason why I always apply a few drops of Lotus Oil before because if I don’t, my skin wouldn’t be enough hydrated for the cold winter days. I love the light, fresh and cooling texture of this moisturiser and the fragrance is simply amazing!
SUPER MULTI-CORRECTIVE EYE-OPENING SERUM, KIEHL’S
I start using this eye serum a few months ago. To be honest I’ve never use eye cream or serum before as I thought I didn’t need it but I turned 25 and I started thinking about my wrinkles. I know, you can laugh at me as I am still young and have no wrinkles yet but I am someone who’s laughing and smiling a lot and guess what… One of the first characteristic will be to have wrinkles around the eye. Noon noooo I prefer to anticipate!
This Serum instantly plump up and lift the skin, it will look visibly firmer after the application. I apply it every morning and night and can’t stop using it!
POWERFUL WRINKLE REDUCING CREAM, KIEHL’S
I apply this moisturiser at night. You may want to know why I don’t use it for the day? First, I love the lightweight texture of it even if it’s a cream and it isn’t to greasy which is good. The only reason why I use an other product for the day is because I really don’t like the smell of it which is something important for me. Ok, it is natural and fragrance-free but during the day we want our face to smell good 🙂
But I love this cream and after an entire night with it on my face, I feel my skin more hydrated than with the Gel Cream. I will not tell you that it makes my wrinkles disappear as I don’t have any but I feel my sky very firm after using it, I apply this cream more as a preventive wrinkleds treatment. It is perfect for winter but I will probably stop using it as soon as the warm days come back, it would be way too heavy for me.
