At this time of the year, contending with the cold can feel like something of an ongoing battle, particularly in the skincare stakes. Whether you're feeling a little bit grey around the gills, are seriously missing the sunshine or dreading another day of dry skin- the toll which winter weather takes on your complexion can sometimes feel never ending. I don't know about you, but I always tend to forget just how much my skin suffers as the temperatures tumble, particularly in terms of lack of radiance and an onslaught of dry patches...not fun! Having said that, in an attempt to combat these complaints as far as possible, I've assembled some new weapons in my skincare squad, and am seeing some seriously impressive results so far:
I treated myself to Pixi's Best of Bright kit just before Christmas- needless to say that the opportunity to sample some of their much praised products for only £20 was too good to turn down! The Glow Tonic is a product which I've long wanted to try, and it's fast become a firm favourite in my daily routine- especially in lieu of any weather induced form of glow! The Glow Mud Mask is a wonder facial in a tube, formulated with sea salt and aloe to gently remove all of those seasonal nasties and rejuvenate. Finally, the Glow Mud Cleanser is a once or twice weekly treat which really makes a difference to how my skin looks and feels- in short, a trio which I'm confident I'll be reaching for regularly in the build up to spring!
Have you tried any new skincare staples for winter?
