Winter Skincare

You beautiful bunch asked, and it only took me the best part of 6 months to write it. Obviously, I have been slightly busy of late, but nevertheless, I am dedicating the next however long this takes me, to pull together my skincare essentials, hints, tips and hacks. Some of the items featured in this blog have been gifted, some I have brought myself, but regardless of gift or purchase, these are items I love and use regularly.

Before I share the products I am using, I wanted to chat about the other ways I care for my skin. In all honesty, I think the foundation for good skin is hydration. I drink so much water, very rarely have caffeinated fizzy drinks but of course, I drink coffee. I don't know what I would do without my morning coffee. I also eat a really balanced diet, loads of fruit and vegetables. When it comes to sun exposure, I don't go on sunbeds, and when I am in the sun, I always make sure I wear SPF, and block when I am in the surf. As far as looking after my skin I do whatever I can to try and keep it looking healthy.

For me, my skincare routine starts at night.

I begin by cleansing my skin, removing any makeup. At the moment, these are the products I am using on my skin:

Ren Skincare Gentle Cleansing Milk *
Botanics 100% Rosewater
Poppy Austin Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum

I apply the cleanser to my face and massage in, while I do that I soak a flannel in hot water, as hot as I can handle it. I then remove the cleanser with the flannel, covering my whole face, giving it mini steam clean at the same time.

I then pat my face dry with a towel then apply a few sprays of the Rosewater spritz.

I have been using this toner for well over a year now. It's refreshing, clean and hydrating. I just spray the toner over my face and leave it to soak in while I clean my teeth.

Once the teeth are clean, it's time for the best bit, the face serum.

I tend to change up for face oil and serum every time they run out, and at the moment I am using one I picked up from Amazon and so far so good!

I apply one pipet full to my face, neck and chest, leaving it to soak in.

Mornings are pretty easy, I don't wash my face and avoid getting my face wet in the shower, because I like to keep all the natural oils my body produces on my face. I just add a couple of sprays of my Skin & Tonic Rose Mist* and then apply Ren Skincare Omega 3 Optimum Skin Oil*. 

Next up are the products that I used one/twice a week. 

I love to treat myself to a face mask and deep clean. So, when I feel like I need some extra TLC, these are the products that I use. 

Face Masks

Deep Clean 

There are two other things I love to use. First up is the Naughty Tigi Jade Face Roller *. I have been wanting to try a face roller for a while now and especially after having Albee. My eyes get very puffy, and I can honestly say this really helps. It feels so lovely on your skin, especially when cold. I try to use this once or twice a day, either with my toner or serum on. 

Next up is something that helps with my pale, winter skin! It's the Isle Of Paradise Self Tanning Drops. A little goes a long way, and you can add it to your own face oil or cream. Just one drop is enough to give my skin a sunkissed glow. 

In a nut shell I love a skincare routine. I love face oils, creams, face masks ... anything hydrating and nourishing. These are the products I am using now, but when I find more gems I will be sure to share them with you all.
