Winter skincare favourites

The arrival of winter means dry, sensitive, and irritated skin so I do a complete skincare rotation. Throughout the colder months I need to use more hydrating products and add in serums to lock in moisture.

After cleansing my skin I'll sweep Pixi Rose Tonic over my face. You may have heard of Pixi Glow Tonic but this new toner is completely is a rose-based toner that hydrates skin and netralises PH to soothe. I'll then use a serum like The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid or if my skin is particularly dry I'll use Dr Organic Snail Gel, from Holland and Barrett. Now, the thought of putting gel from snails onto your face may seem completely strange BUT it is great for your skin. This gel smooths and softens skin and is mixed with Aloe Vera.

Indeed Hydration Booster is also a great multi-use product that you can either pop directly onto your skin or mix with your favourite moisturiser or foundation for an extra boost of moisture.

When it comes to moisturiser I use different products for day and night, my favourite daytime moisturiser is the new launch from Murad Skincare - Nutrient Charged Water Gel. This is oil-free so suitable for all skin types and locks in moisture for up to five days. I love this as it plumps up my skin and hydrates without feeling thick or greasy. In the evenings I love the Lacura Caviar Night Cream from Aldi. This skincare range is such a bargain and feels like it is working to rehydrate skin overnight.

Finally, lipcare is an essential at winter and I am in love with these new mirror compacts from Lypsyl. They come in a range of great scents - Zingy Mandarin, Luxurious Vanilla, and Fresh Orange Blossom. They are just £4.99 and ideal for popping in your handbag for on the go touch-ups.
