Oh my oh my, how time has flown this year. I mean I am still a bit shocked that we are seriously in 2015. Say whatttttt! Of course with a New Year it also means it is winter time. And holy wow, this is the first time I think I have ever felt California had a season other than HOT! Of course ignoring the fact that it is a bit chilly outside, and my lips have been soooooo dry lately- thanks weird weather, my skin on the other hand has done quite well. No dry patches that need extra oomph, and everything just seems a bit on the balanced side, and I LOVE IT! This year I need to break out my resolutions and get to work. But with resolutions I think everyone can say they always start the year off trying to be healthier- so I have been doubling my water intake, eating better and I honestly think my skin is getting great results, but I also think some key hydrating products in my routine have played a special role. So this week the ladies of The Beauty Council and I have decided to bring you our curated edits of winter staples, so without further ado, here you go….
The Hydrating Wonder: This is a long time love that has been brought into my skincare routine a lot lately, and I am OBSESSED! Hydraluron* by Indeed Labs is hands down the BEST hydrating extra oomph that can do any skin some good. I have talked about my other favorite Pepta-Bright by Indeed Labs here, but man oh man- Hydraluron is rocking my world and has given my skin some major plump, moisturized action. I promise a full scaled review to come soon, but just know YOU NEED IT!
The Morning Appropriate Facial Oil: Rodial STEMCELL Super-food Facial Oil seriously rocks! I am a long time love of the Rodial STEMCELL Super food line, and use the cream cleanser literally everyday. But this serum like oil is heaven on the skin. It goes amazing under makeup and leaves the skin hydrated without being greasy at all.. like at all… I put this on over my moisturizer as the final step in my morning skincare routine, and it just feels amazing-you know?
The Give Me Some Moisture Packing Mask: There is not enough space on this post to write all the wonderful things I LOVE about SKIN INC, I freaking love love love the line and I am obsessed with the Pure DeepSea Hydrating Mask*. This hydrating mask from SKIN INC literally gives your skin a super dose of hydration when you are in need. I have been using this weekly on Wednesday nights as a mid-week pick me up by sleeping with it on. It is ridiculously phenomenal. You can sleep with it on for maximum hydration, or do a 15 minute hydrating mask to give skin some plumpness before a night out on the town. It is AMAZING!
The Oooh-la-la Dream Cream: FarmHouse Fresh Travel Body Milks*– I have professed my love for these dream creams here, but seriously they have been my winter savior. My hands tend to get uber dream in the winter, and these have saved me. Nobody wants dry, scaley hands- aint nobody got time for that! The scents- ahhhhhhh- the scent amazing! The texture is light and fluffy on the skin, super rich and gives the skin a bit of a slip, once massaged in, this cream absorbs like a dream and leaves the skin glowing and hydrated like no other. One word- OBSESSED!
The Shower Body Add On: FarmHouse Fresh Whoopie Cream Body Wash*- OMG this is phenomenal. It hydrates the body, leaves skin unbelievably soft and yummmmmmmmm is how you will leave the shower. It literally smells amazing! I have been using this everyday and I can not believe how long it took for me to find the perfect body wash for winter skin. In LOVE!
The Water Wonder: Now I know what you are thinking- WATER? Why is water a winter staple? Well let me just say this Avene Thermal Spring Water just gives the skin some fabulous french oomph. This French Spring Water is known to give skin a soothing action and help with dry skin, psoriasis, skin irritants and more- and let me just say I love love love it! I use it in the morning as a light hydrating punch before I pack my skin with moisturizer and Hydraluron. Something about this water has just made a difference in my skin and has given my skin some solid plumpness. Bye fine lines and wrinkles as they seem to be lesser when this has been added into my routine.
So there you have it my solid go-to winter staples this year. Time to get cracking on my other New Years resolutions, so be ready for some Ch-Ch-Changes over here on Makeup Life and Love. I promise they are all awesome changes, and some more solid posting schedule- but more on that later.
