Winter is fast approaching, and my skin is not liking it. I love a good skincare routine, but I’ve used the same products year-round. I have always had extremely oily skin. However, a few years ago, I noticed that this changed during the winter season. I started getting dry patches on my chin and lower cheek area.
I kept using the same products; however, they didn’t do much because they catered to oily skin types. That’s when I started looking for products not only to match the season but to match the skin type I suddenly developed. My skin type went from oily to combination. I had to find products that catered to this and the current season.
Since we are again in winter, I would like to share some of the products that I use to combat different things: hyperpigmentation, dryness, oiliness, under-eye dark circles etc.
The Ordinary products I use in the AM and PM. I would recommend that you download the Skincare app. The app helps you develop a routine for day and night and lets you know which products not to use in conjunction with another. All products can be found here👉🏾 http:/https://deciem.com/en-ca/theordinary
The Jade Roller and Gua Sha toolset is a personal favourite. After applying my products, I like to sit back and massage my face and neck with both tools. I find that they help alleviate tension in my face and help with relaxation. The set can be found here 👉🏾 https://amzn.to/32w4xnM *affiliate link*
My skincare routine involves taking care of my lips as well. During the colder months, my lips get dry, so I make sure to keep hydrated. I also use a lip scrub to keep it soft and supple. The Laneige Sleeping Mask is my new favourite lip product. Sephora recently rolled out their mini lip kits, and I had to get my hand on it. Although it’s a lip mask, I use it day and night. You can find it or another variation here👉🏾 https://www.sephora.com/ca/en/product/laneige-all-nighter-lip-set-P475126?skuId=2472488
FAB Ultra Repair Cream- This is one of my holy grail moisturizers for the winter season. It provides intense hydration, fast-absorbing. I lather myself in it at night and wake up with refreshed-looking skin the next day. You can find it here👉🏾 https://www.sephora.com/ca/en/product/ultra-repair-cream-intense-hydration-P381145?skuId=1466762&icid2=skugrid:p381145:product
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream– This is another holy grail moisturizer, it is lightweight and fast-absorbing. It also addresses other skin concerns such as uneven texture, dryness, and dullness. I use this one as a daytime moisturizer. You can find it here👉🏾https://www.sephora.com/ca/en/product/ultra-facial-cream-P421996
FAB 5 in 1 Eye Cream- Please do not forget to take care of the skin around and under your eyes. Nobody likes wrinkles, crows’ feet, dark circles, etc. However, those things happen naturally as we age. Keeping them at bay a while longer doesn’t hurt. This eye cream targets dark circles, loss of firmness and elasticity, as well as dryness under the eyes. It can be used both day and night.
