Over the years I have really noticed how my skin changes with the seasons, so I have learnt that my skincare routine also needs to change every few months to adapt. So now as the colder months arrive I have been testing various products from Superdrug and have finally settled on the perfect winter skincare routine…
I like to start my mornings with Superdrug’s Tea Tree Daily Exfoliating Cream Wash. In the past I have found that my skin reacts badly to every day exfoliation, but this exfoliating wash isn’t too harsh so its perfect for everyday use. The Tea Tree leaves my skin feeling fresh and definitely gives me the kick you need on those dark dingy mornings when you just cant seem to wake up!
Once my skin is washed and dried I like to use a daily moisturiser specifically for dry/sensitive skin, as the cold air really dries my skin out so I need a little extra moisture in the morning. I also like to leave it to sink in properly before I start my make up so it took my a while to find one that wasn’t too oily, absorbed fast and left my skin feeling really nourished. I was recommended the Nivea day cream by a friend and absolutely love it! It was exactly what I was looking for and i’ve used it every day since.
Once my day is over I take my make up off as soon as possible, I normally use the pink top Garnier Micellar Water to do this, but I noticed it was starting to dry my skin out now it is getting colder. I switched to their oil-infused version instead as the oil really replenishes the skin and leaves it feeling nourished and cleansed rather than dried out!
I then like to use the L’Oreal Fine Flowers Toner (again for Dry/Sensitive skin). This toner is simply amazing, it looks good, smells good and does exactly what it says on the bottle. I wish I had started using this sooner because it leaves your skin feeling so smooth and healthy!
Finally once the toner has sunk in I like to either use an oil or thick night cream to really work itself into my skin overnight. I have been using this Superdrug Vitamin E Leave on Mask since last year, it is perfect for replenishing your skin during the night. It’s a gel like mixture and is full of various vitamins to help shield your skin against environmental damage and premature skin ageing. When I wake up my skin feels fresh and so smooth.
