Mirror Mirror on the Wall… by fashionablechicks on polyvore.com
I don’t know about you but about this time every winter I look in the mirror and feel 5 years older. My skin looks dry, pale and ughhhh wrinkly!
I try to get a regular facial in the winter but somehow I can’t quite squeeze it in. So instead, here are a few products I love that help with the winter blahs.
I use an exfoliator everyday, yes everyday, along with my Clarisonic. If you do not own a Clarisonic, they are a great investment. A little pricey but worth every penny. I think they are around $250 but I have had mine for three years and it is still working great. I like Clinique and YSL, they are not very strong so perfectly safe to use everyday. The Bobbi Brown body scrub is great and I can not live without this one.
When I feel really dry and dull, I add a retinoid product. To get one that really works- you need to get it from your dermatologist.
A great addition all year, is the Kate Sumerville Face Tanning Pads. I try to not get sun on my face and these do not smell soooooo incredibly bad like most sunless tanners do.
Hope this helps a tad, I’ve added a moisturizer (Bobbi Brown) and Aquaphor for the lips. I’m addicted to this stuff. I even put it under my eyes with and without makeup on. With makeup, I add it to the top of my cheekbones and it gives you a dewy look. Try it and see, not too much- you don’t want to look greasy.
Bye Bye Winter Blahs…..
