Winter is brutal on my skin. I’m sure it’s brutal on yours too. That’s why I knew I had to change up my skin routine for the winter. My biggest problem is dry skin…so I turned to the experts!
Kiehl’s has great products for all skin types, but especially for those looking for some extra moisture.
Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration ($32 for a 50mL Jar)
This 24-hour, intense hydrating cream is uniquely formulated to seal in moisture for dry skin types. Works to relieve tightness and discomfort by ensuring dry skin’s hydration levels are replenished. This surprisingly light-textured, yet intensely hydrating cream effectively retains moisture while helping shield dry skin from moisture depletion.
I use this in the morning to combat dry skin. It’s a cross between a gel and a lotion, and gives you nice light coverage. It doesn’t feel heavy and has a light scent. Provides lots of moisture!
Once a Week
Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque ($36 for a 125mL Jar)
In just one application this ultra-hydrating masque, formulated with Ophiopogon Japonicus, also known as Fountain Plant, fills skin’s ’’hydration reservoir” to help reduce moisture depletion. Combined with skin-protecting Glacial Proteins and moisture-retaining Desert Plants, our formula leaves skin smoother and softer, refreshed and supple. Silicone-Free. Paraben-Free. Fragrance-Free. Colorant-Free.
If you can get your hands on this little jar of miracles, run, don’t walk, to the cashier. This guy has been sold out frequently the last couple of months. It’s like a thick gel that I put on before I go to bed. Let it stay on your skin for 10 minutes and then gently wipe off excess. Go to bed…and wake up with super hydrated skin! It’s my favourite of the products that I tried.
Cream de Corps Soy Milk and Honey Whipped Body Butter ($45 for a 235mL Jar)
This luxuriously scented cream is light on skin yet rich in 24-hour hydration. This formula is quickly absorbed to deliver deep moisturization with an addictive scent.
This is almost just like butter. It has a cheerful bright yellow colour but it’s more like the consistency of buttercream. Also, it smells amazing. It’s ultra thick formula provides tons of moisture.
This is how I’ve been taking care of my skin this winter. What’s your skin routine?
