A January Skin Detox

I think it's safe to say that my skin hasn't fared well with the consumption of all the cheese, yorkshire puddings and chocolate pudding I consumed over the Christmas period. Although of course I don't regret one bit of it, my skin is feeling a little bit worse for wear; looking dry all over, peaky in places and I have the odd blemish too. Here are the products I'm relying on to help me detox my skin this January: 

I recently picked up a new cleanser as I was running dangerously low on my others. I decided to try out the Bobbi Brown Cleansing Milk as I've heard some great stuff about it, and so far it's done the job of removing my makeup amazingly. It doesn't leave my skin feeling stripped either, but gives it a bit of a hydrating boost. This is fab when paired with the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser too. 

Toners have been something I've gotten into a lot more recently and I actually feel like they do quite a lot for my parched skin. The Pixi Rose Essence* and Fresh Rose Toner are two of my favourites, as they give a feeling of injecting moisture into the skin, perking it up and making my complexion look healthy again. For when I need to get rid of any under the skin spots or blemishes, I like to bring out the Pixi Glow Tonic*, a long time favourite of mine that sorts out all my dull skin woes. 

I use toners just before my moisturiser; recently I have been using the Farmacy Honey Drop* offering in the morning and a thicker one in the form of the Fresh Rose Moisturiser* at night. If I need an extra layer, I mix in an oil with my moisturiser and the Aesop Fabulous Face Oil* is the perfect pick for this; it feels like a treat to apply because it helps with multiple skin problems including dullness, blemishes and hydration. 

With the lack of sleep over Christmas, I'm relying heavily on eye treatments to help perk up my peepers and The Ordinary's Caffeine Solution is amazing when you're trying to wake yourself up in the morning. It sits great underneath makeup, is cool when applied and just makes my under eyes more hydrated. 

Masks are an essential of mine when I need to give my skin some extra TLC. I find that when my skin is seriously in need then I love to go in with a clarifying offering, then a hydrating favourite afterwards. The Glossier Mega Greens Galaxy Pack is my top blemish buster as it doesn't make my skin feel sensitive after use, but it thoroughly cleans instead. I then follow it up with either the corresponding Glossier Moon Mask or the Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask; one pick that I'm very happy to have back in my collection! It's fruity scented, incredibly nourishing and makes my skin look bouncy in just 20 minutes. 

I finish off my skincare routine with a quick slick of Glossier Balm Dot Com to keep my chapped lips feeling nourished, as I usually suffer with them at this time of the year when it's cold and windy outside. 

Are you switching up your skincare in any way this January?
