With a combination skin type, my complexion tends to lean more towards being dehydrated in the Autumn and Winter season, so I rely on nourishing formulas that keep my skin in tip top condition. To my surprise, I feel like I've got my routines down and I've managed to keep my dry patches at bay most of the time and I put it down to these handful of products.
The Herbivore Emerald Oil* is perfect if you suffer with lacklustre skin and you're in need of some serious hydration. This adds a subtle glow to the skin, but as it's super thick and doesn't necessarily sink in ultra-quickly, I use this a few times a week similar to a treatment.
I've been using Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream* for a while now and I just knew that when I started, I would be grateful for my tub when the weather started getting colder and I was right! It's thick, it's creamy and it's extremely luxurious, everything I love in a Winter moisturiser. It sinks in quickly and makes my complexion feel super soft and hydrated perfect for not only under makeup in the morning, but a thicker layer in the evening does the world of good too.
I believe that one of the main reasons why my body doesn't feel scaly like it usually does is because of the L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil*. If, like me, you struggle with giving yourself a full body moisturise after getting out the bath then this is perfect as you just lather it up whilst you're under water and let it do it's magic. It's a great alternative to shower gel and although I don't use it everyday, it's a great treat for your body on days when I need some extra TLC!
For an extra boost, I opt for the L'Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate* to smother all over my body and lock in moisture. It smells delightful and as it isn't a super intense scent it doesn't mess with your perfume if you're wearing this during the day. It makes my skin feel soft and supple - perfect for the Winter season.
Next up we have what I've been using on my lips, the Girl Undiscovered Pink Skies Lip Balm* which transforms from a balm to an oil with just the warmth of your skin. It's cinnamon scent feels very fitting for this time of the year and I like to use it from day to night for all day protection for the cold.
