Skincare Routine For A Winter’s Night

Say hello to Winter! This season brings an entirely new set of hurdles to skin. Hot baths, central heating and lower air humidity impair the skin’s barrier function, leaving it susceptible to dehydration – the perfect environment for a dry, lacklustre complexion. It’s now time to change up your skincare routine, taking toners and peels out in favour of hydration boosting products. Think about it this way, you’re not going to wear a summer dress in December, you change your clothing routine, so why not your products too?! Here are the Winter skincare products I use in my night time regime…

All About That Base

Starting with a good base is key to an even make up look, that’s why choosing the right foundation is essential. Finding it is another matter, it’s just never that straight-forward. Go into any beauty store and there are shelves upon shelves to choose from, whether it’s full coverage, matte, glowy or a natural-look cover up, finding the perfect partner to give you a flawless finish can be overwhelming. Of course there are varying price points too from drugstore staples for under £10.00 to an all out splurge which I simply can’t justify. 

Liquids, sticks, powders there’s a lot of choice, so here i’ve highlighted my current favourites which work for my skin and could work for yours too…

Best Beauty Buys For Under £20

I’ve been obsessed with skincare and make up for as long as I can remember. After road testing an array of products over the years I know that i’ve definitely paid over the odds for beauty, (yes, I have bought items just because the bottle looked pretty – shameful I know). These brands may be all glam, but they don’t stand up to their claims. Knowing what I know now, looking and feeling good doesn’t have to stretch your wallet. Great beauty buys are available to everyone, sometimes they can just be trickier to find. In this post i’ve omitted products which I have harped on about over and over, such as the Caudalie Beauty Elixir. No one wants to know for the millionth time how much I love it! The products in this post are those which represent great value for money, are effective and do exactly what they claim. Enjoy!

Misty Business

Despite what people may think a facial mist isn’t just for the hotter months of the year, they’re a big part of my skincare routine, from setting make-up, to toning, to just simply refreshing my skin on-the-go. You may think they’re an unnecessary step but, a good mist can help boost dehydrated skin to maintain a healthy glow all year round. If you find that your skin isn’t getting the hydration it needs, then you should consider incorporating a mist into your daily regime. Here are 3 of my favourites for you to consider…
