Skincare during the Winter

Summer is now definitely over and the weather is getting colder here in The Netherlands. When the Winter changes, it is also time to take a look at your skin-care and see what you need to change there.

As you probably know and hopefully do, cleansing your skin is important. I must admit I know it, but not always do it, and I feel it immediately. My skin feels less soft en more dry then when I do cleanse.

Try to cleanse in the evening ├ánd in the morning, and you will see the positive effects after just a few days. 

My skin is quite dry and sensitive, and I do not use a lot of products during the day to cover my skin.

I do however, always (as in: every day) use a good day-cream. I use a day cream by Nivea, it is a brand that works for my skin and it is not very expensive. It has spf 15 and is anti-wrinkle.

Under my day-cream I use a serum. This one I use now is Skinperfection by L'Oreal. I like how light it feels and I have the idea it gives my skin that little bit extra it needs. A serum is a bit more expensive, but you need so little, a bottle like this will last very long.

During the night
After I cleanse my skin at night, I use a biological oil. This one I use is by Kneipp, a brand that is, again, not very expensive and you only need about 2 to 3 drops for your face and neck. (don’t forget the neck!).

It gives my dry skin some extra care and I love how soft and smooth my skin feels afterwards.

Do not use too much oil, because then it will form a layer on your face and it will only make your pillow dirty when you go to sleep! J

After the oil, I use regenerating night-cream, also by Nivea. This one is rich and creamy and it feels very good on my skin.
Do you have a skincare regime for the winter and what products do you use? I am curious to know what other people use.
But whatever your skincare regime is, make sure your skin is ready for the Winter!
