How cold has it been in Melbourne lately? Lucky for me, I have two weeks off work but I can still feel the icy cold winds when I’m walking to the gym at night. The harsh cold weather really dries out the skin so today I’m going to show you what I use to keep my skin hydrated.
Moisturiser – At night, I use a thicker and more rich moisturiser to help give that extra bit of hydration. A good moisturiser will absorb quickly and doesn’t feel heavy. I wake up with smooth refreshed skin.
Rosehip Oil – There are many benefits of using rosehip oil such as diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as improving skin elasticity and texture. I mainly use rosehip oil in winter as it can really help with dry skin and evening out my skintone.
Eye cream – It’s amazing no matter how many hours you sleep in winter, it’s always a struggle to wake up. That’s why in the cooler months, I switch to an eye cream that helps with dark circles.
Face masks – I use plenty of face masks in winter. It helps to give you that extra boost your skin needs. Plus, it’s always quite relaxing doing a face mask while watching your favourite youtuber.
Body Conditioner – Have you ever got out of the shower with super tight skin? I have! To prevent that from happening, I like to slather body conditioner all over my body and rinse it off before getting out of the shower. A body conditioner will leave your skin smooth and sliky, definitely a treat for your skin.
Body Moisturiser – After the body conditioner, I then moisturise my skin with body cream for dry skin.
Hand Cream – Especially in winter, I always carry a hand cream around in my bag. As I mentioned in my other post, my knuckles would crack and it gets quite painful.
Lips – People with dry lips such as myself always ensure we carry at least one lip balm around in our bags or at our work desk. is a winter must have product because it’s known for it’s deep moisturising benefits. I still remember the first time I used the original lip balm – I got the famous ‘Carmex tingle’, it really feels like it’s working magic.
