Skincare is something I take very seriously because my skin doesn’t like a chaotic routine at all, and instantly shows what it thinks by rewarding me with dry patches or inflammation. As you can see, I don’t use a lot of products in the morning. However, every one of these is a great help for my skin in winter.
Despite my skin being dry (towards normal if I’m lucky), I still cleanse my face every morning with foam cleansers. Foam cleansers are my favorite and, although some of them might be quite drying, I find this Alterra Foam Cleanser gentle and effective. A toner is something I try very hard to incorporate into my morning routine. At the moment, I use Primavera Rose Water Revitalizing Toner. I’m not head over heels in love with it, but since I have a sample of it that needs to be used up before it expires, I made it a part of my routine. Dry skin is not a skin type where you can skip a moisturizer. Using a good cream that would give plenty of moisture is crucial, especially now in winter. I just finished my John Masters Organics Rose & Apricot Day Cream, and now I’m using Weleda Skin Food. Skin Food is the mother of winter moisturizers. I don’t know that many creams that are so nourishing without feeling too greasy, do you? Another morning skincare essential is Dr. Hauschka Rejuvenating Mask. I am so grateful to Dr. Hauschka for having sample size products because this little tube lasts me a very long time. This is my emergency product, which I sometimes use topically on dry patches. The only thing missing in my routine is an eye cream, I really need to get one soon. Any suggestions?
