I'm probably getting ahead of myself here, but with the slightly warmer weather upon us, I'm starting to feel excited about Spring being around the corner. I recently looked back on the last few months since Winter properly kicked in; analysing what products I've been using the keep dry skin patches at bay. I wanted to put together a full list of the products I've been relying on because although I'm prone to a dehydrated complexion, I feel like I've battled the cold weather perfectly this year.
For skincare, I've been loving face oils to keep my skin in tip-top condition like the Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Oil* which I then use with the Sunday Riley Tidal Water Cream* for a nourished finish. I tend to keep everything pretty much the same, but I do like to concentrate on massaging all the products in and using face masks regularly.
Not only does your face need hydrating in the colder months, but your hair does too. The Olaplex No3 Perfector was one of my favourite finds as it has improved the overall texture of my locks. Although it's directly used to target dehydration, I have found that my hair looks a lot less dry and in overall better condition.
One of the problems that arose this season was very dry elbows, knees and hands. I tried a lot of solutions to the elbow dry patches, but nothing seemed to be working until I scrubbed them with the Herbivore Coco Rose Scrub followed by applying the Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré* which traditionally is used on the face, but I love using it all over as it smells super fresh and feels great too.
The other product I've been using on my body is the Sol De Janeiro Bum Bum Cream which I can't believe I'm still using the smaller size of as I have been using it a lot, but a small bit goes a long way. To be fair I use it whenever I want to make myself feel better and smell great too alas sparingly.
What products have you enjoyed using this Winter?
