Happy weekend guys and what a miserable day it is outside. I thought I would update my blog as it has been a hot minute since I have.
Autumn and winter are my favourite months of the year. I love the smells, the colours, the chunky knits and the biker boots. Curling up on the sofa under a blanket with a hot chocolate is where you’ll find me most autumnal evenings.
With the colder months, my skincare routine needs switching up a little bit so I thought I would share that with you all.
In the shower I am using the Sanctuary Spa Body Wash and 2 Day Long Lasting Moisture Shower Oil. Essential oils and jojoba beads in the body wash lather up when used and smell delicious! I then use the oil which is a blend of gold of pleasure oil and omega’s 3, 6 and 9. I had never used an in-shower oil before but it really does leave your skin feeling nourished and silky soft. Both products feel really luxurious and I love that they smell like you are at a spa! I picked up both on Amazon. I also like to use a loofah exfoliating glove. This one is from Hydrea London and it makes such a different to my skin when I use it. I also got this from Amazon. I am waiting on the Sanctuary Spa Body Scrub Exfoliator to arrive so I will be sure to share my thoughts on that once I have used it a few times. I love an exfoliator!
It is so easy to neglect your skin in the shower and just use all of the products afterwards but it really does make a difference looking after it when showering or bathing. Talking of baths, I rarely have them but when I do I love to use Imperial Leather and my favourite right now is Moroccan Sunset. It smells divine!
After the shower, I lather myself up in Neutrogena’s Visibly Renew moisturiser. I only ever really use Neutrogena for body moisturisers as I love how thick they are – great for the colder months. Then I will either use the Dermalogica Barrier Defense Booster, which is a concentrated oil booster that helps to restore balance to sensitive skin, or the Typology Organic Sweet Almond Oil. Sweet Almond improves skin health as it is high in Vitamin E and has rejuvenating antioxidant properties. (I was kindly sent both of these oils as PR Products).
I have been trying a new all day tinted moisturiser from SunSense which has SPF 50+. It is their daily face product and I love it! When I saw this had a tint in it and a high SPF I just had to try it. This product also contains Vitamin E which helps with a whole heap of things, including reducing the appearance of fine lines. As I am getting older I am realising how important it is to protect your skin so I no longer use a foundation or a base in the day- I just use this.
Before bed, I use my trusty favourite Polaar Night Revitalizing Mask. Polaar are such an incredible company who I have worked with in the past and I love their products. This night mask is like sleep in a bottle. My skin the next morning after using this just feels brand new and well cared for. (Previous PR Product).
Et voila! That is my autumn/winter skincare change up. Have a great Saturday!
