Switching Skincare Staples for Winter

As the seasons change, so does my skincare routine. I struggle with having dry skin and therefore my winter skincare consists mainly of products that provide moisture to protect against the colder weather. This post I chat about 4 facial essentials that I have been using recently, please leave in the comments below if you have any recommendations. 

 The Aveeno Moisturising Cream is my current go-to moisturiser. I have been applying this each morning before applying my makeup. It contains finely milled colloidal oatmeal  which helps restore the skin’s natural barrier, preventing water loss. I have to admit that the smell of the product  reminds me of porridge but it’s natural and fragrance free. Aveeno have other moisturising products for problem area skin and also have an excellent baby range.

My night time routine currently includes this Loreal Paris Extraordinary Facial Oil. Containing 8 refined essential oils, Lavander; marjoram, romarin, geranium, rose, chamomile, orange and lavandin`, I have found that this to be an amazing formula to replenish my skin at the end of the day. 

An eye cream is a staple product, but one that I’ve only recently started using. This Olay Eye Transforming Cream is essentially the first eye cream I have ever owned and therefore I can’t compare it to anything else that I’ve tried, but I feel like I can recommend it. It contains skin super-multi-vitamin VianiacinTM with Vitamins B3, E and C, has a thick creamy texture which quickly absorbs into the skin.  

Last up, I’ve been loving this Nivea Express Hydration Primer for those mornings that I’m in a rush. This product is enriched with Vitamins and natural Lotus Extract for moisture but is also a fast drying primer; It therefore combines two stages of my morning routine into one.
