With a winter spent mostly indoors this year, my skin is feeling the dry and cold weather! As someone with more combined skin, finding a balance of the best products as been a process through the years but today I’m excited to share my winter skin care routine to help your skin feel hydrated and looking its best!
A COMPLETE WINTER SKIN CARE ROUTINE FOR COMBINATION SKIN:
For Your Face:
When it comes to my face wash, I keep it simple and really love Cetaphil. It cleans my skin without stripping the moisture and best of all, it’s under $10!
This thick cream is my favorite to use before bed each night. You only need a little bit to warm up between your fingers and melt into your skin. It restores essential skin lipids: ceramides, natural cholesterol, and fatty acids
to help improve the look of skin fullness, texture, and pore appearance
Making sure to exfoliate is super important in keeping your skin healthy during the winter and these peel pads have been my go-to for over five years. I alternate using these every other day and they give my skin a great glow and keep it breakout free as well.
I alternate between the Triple Lipid and this moisturizer during the winter as I love how hydrating but light it is. A little bit goes a long way and feels like giving your skin a big glass of water! Also love their eye gels for mornings you wake up a little puffy.
My number one skin must have, I use this vitamin C serum every morning on a clean face as it provides environmental protection, lightens lines, firms skin and brightens your complexion.
For those needing to plump their skin and give an extra boost of hydration, this serum has a powerful blend of pure hyaluronic acid, proxylane, licorice root and purple rice work to help boost skin’s hyaluronic acid levels, improving skin texture and restoring elasticity. I use this after applying my vitamin C serum or if using with retinol at night.
Another favorite from SkinCeuticals, this one is a must all winter when needing all the extra hydration on your skin. It almost feels like water absorbing quickly in your skin!
I love this eye cream because it’s super hydrating and a little jar lasts for so long!
I’m so sad they just announced they are discontinuing this favorite face oil of mine but I’ve heard their new GOOPGenes oil is supposed to be amazing too! I like to layer this on my moisturizer for any super dry days and also use when doing gua sha at night.
For nights I want to really hydrate my skin, I layer this mask on to sleep at. It’s lightweight but ultra hydrating at the same time and my skin always has a great glow to it the next day.
As I shared earlier this year, my apartment is super dry so I make sure to slather this lip sleep mask on every night before bed. Not only does it smell great and so moisturizing, I love the soft pink it gives my lips during the day as well.
For Your Body:
Necessaire has become my must have for all things body this past year and the Body Routine Set includes all my favorites. The Body Lotion, The Body Wash, The Body Serum and the Hand Cream. Not only are they all super hydrating and nourishing, they also smell so good and look pretty sitting on your vanity.
One of the routines I’ve added this past year is making sure to dry brush before my shower a few times a week. Not only does this help with removing dry skin but also helps with circulation and reducing cellulite. A quick and easy routine that’s made such a difference!
Along with keeping my skin looking it’s best, making sure my muscles feel their best too is so important. The Equilibria Relief Cream helps with any achy muscles or aches and pains and a game changer to use as I’ve shared before. You can use code CARLYHILL for 15% off as well!
