We all know that winter time = dry skin and honestly it’s hard to find products that actually work to combat flakiness and rough texture. So today I’m sharing a few products that have been working really well for me as the temperatures start to decline.
As it starts to get colder in Vancouver, I can feel my skin getting dryer and dryer so I’m trying to make sure that I use as much hydrating product as possible 24/7. I find that even if I skip one day of using my hydrating products, the moisture is just sucked out of my skin and I’m left feeling dull and dehydrated.
I use most of these products on a daily basis and some of them only a few times a week. If you’re having issues with dry skin then these could be the answers to your problems!
Image Skincare – Vital C Overnight Mask
This mask is something that I put on 2-4 times a week when my skin is feeling super parched. I love the way it smells (like freshly squeezed orange juice) and how it makes my skin feel upon application.
I apply a thick layer of this over-top of my toner and serum and wear it overnight. I wake up with super plump and glowing skin! Works every time 🙂
Summer Friday’s Jet Lag Mask
This is another hydrating mask that I love and I’m sure you’re sick of me saying it because I rave about it too often 😉 I love this mask because it can be used whenever I want and in multiple ways.
The most hydrating way to use this in the winter (IMO) is to apply a thick layer of it on the face before sleeping. You can tell whether or not your skin is dehydrated by how fast it soaks in! I also love to use it as an under-eye mask overnight to prevent dark circles.
Jowaè Hydrating Water Mist
Whether I’ve just finished working out or need a spritz of hydration throughout the day, this water mist from Jowaè never lets me down. It’s one of the most hydrating mists I own and smells delightful! I’d carry this with me everywhere if the bottle wasn’t so big 😉
The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Body Butter
If you follow me on Instagram then you know this is my favourite body lotion. The body butter from The Body Shop works miracles on dry skin. The Almond Milk & Honey one in particular is for sensitive skin so it’s especially great for the winter time.
I put this body butter on every single day after I shower and the moisture stays in my skin for over a day!
Marcelle Cosmetics Micellar Water for Dry Skin
During the winter I find that my skin feels the most dry when I remove my makeup and wash my face. Instead of my regular micellar water and face wash I’ve switched over to the Marcelle Dry Skin Micellar Water because it hydrates while removing makeup.
I like to use this at the end of the day before showering and also after a workout to remove any sweat!
In addition to the use of these products I’m making it my daily goal to drink at least 2L of water everyday. Drinking water is extremely important to maintain healthy skin, especially because we consume so many hot, caffeinated drinks during this season!
If you have any hydrating products that are really working for you I would love to hear them below in the comments! I haven’t found a face moisturizer yet that truly leaves my skin feeling hydrated during the winter so I’d appreciate any recommendations you might have!
