Hi hun. I get that dry skin problem in the winter but I also have a problem with pimples so I had to come up with a routine that would hydrate my skin efficently without promoting pimples to sprout.
Here is what I came up with and maybe it would help;
Makeup removal: Extra Virgin Olive Oil
. This stuff is awesome. Not only is it a pure and natural product, it contains fruit acids and other botanical type goodies that are good for your skin. It is not a rinsable type cleanser so I follow that with...Shea Butter Baby Wipes
(Huggies) Why spend a fortune on a few Remover Wipes when I can buy a load of them that contain actual shea butter for a fraction of the cost. I use these to remove the olive oil and makeup residue from my skin. To make sure that I get all traces of junk from my face, I use a gentle, non drying toner
I then give my skin a few spritzes of Fix +
and let it dry. Touch your cheek here... your skin will feel plump and dewey! Biotherm makes amazing skincare. I have run the gamut on tried products and I am most satisfied with the following two items. After the Fix + dries, I use Biotherm Oleo Source Anti-Dryness Radiance Elixer
. This is a sheer oil mixture that smells like fresh citrus. Just take a few drops and work it in small circles to your super dry areas. This sinks into your skin and is like a mini spa treatment. For the rest of your face, use Biotherm Oleo Source Moisturizer
. Another great product with a fresh pick me up scent.
For the rest of your body, I use Sephora's Super Rich Body Butter
. This stuff is the best Body butter that I have ever tried. It is super emollient and thick but totally sinkable into your skin. It prevents those gross rough patches on your elbows better than any brand that I have tried.
Hope this helps!
