Brr, it's definitely getting colder!
If it's cold enough to warrant wearing a scarf and some gloves, then I think it's about time I ramped up my skincare wardrobe to make sure my face can cope with the chill. My skin gets dry at the best of times, so I have been making an effort to make sure everything is as nourished as possible.
Two things I recommend for colder weather - a nice greasy cleanser to leave skin delicately nourished. I love the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel because it melts makeup and never leaves the skin feeling stripped. I also think you should never underestimate the power of a good serum - I always notice a difference when I don't use one. I can't live without the Antipodes Hosanna Serum - an absolute must for dehydrated and thirsty skin. It's light and packed full of delicious skin-loving ingredients.
Two favourites from one of my favourite brands - the Clarins Extra-Comfort Toning Lotion is the best toner ever for soothing a dry and irritated complexion. This stuff is magic! Also have a lot of love for the Clarins Repair Booster - I use it as a little potion to mix in with my moisturiser or my foundation as an when I need it. I always get facials at Clarins, and they always recommend this.
Two things I picked up in New York - the Sephora sleeping mask (I like the pearl one), and the It Cosmetics Confidence In A Cream. It Cosmetics is a brand I'm really interested in at the moment, and this cream really is a little treat for a parched complexion. It's gorgeously rich and buttery in texture, and acts a nice cushion to prevent any dryness! I am loving it as a base under makeup as well.Early days, but I am nicely impressed so far.
