Hurry up Spring!!

Sunday, 17 March 2013

I'm sure I'm not the only one begging Spring to arrive! Winter can be a cruel mistress especially on your skin from wearing tights, jeans and leggings not to mention drying the hell out of it. I thought today I'd share some of my winter skin routine which I tend to stick by throughout the colder months but it's good to start now before leg-baring season begins.

Have you ever  noticed that your skin tends to look generally 'bleugh' in the winter? By the time March comes around I find skin can be blotchy, spotty and generally not great. In order to stop this happening I've employed a simple routine of exfoliate and moisturise. It's so simple but works miracles and means it doesn't take as long to get ready for summer!

For my face I use a gentle exfoliator. My face doesn't tend to fair too badly in the cold so I use the gentle 'Clean&Clear' daily wash. It's inexpensive and works for my needs. If you tend to get black-heads or particularly blotchy skin there are other products out there worth investing a little more money in but for me, this works.

I recently ran out of my usual moisturiser so went out and bought the new Garnier Moisture Match to see what it was like. I got the blue 'light softening cream' one (they come in a variety depending on your needs). I find it a little heavier than my usual one but it smells lovely and absorbs quickly.

Finally these are the following products I use for body. Soap and glory are one of my favourite high street brands and they work really well. There scrub smells delicious and works miracles. I finish by moisturising with the Body Shop Body Butter (raspberry is my favourite but I'm not sure if they still do it!)which, for the price, is unbeatable.

  5. I use clean & clear together with my husband. I cannot live without it. The skin feels fresh and light after each use. Regarding body scrub, here is an idea how you can make your own one http://dublinchiclifestyle.blogspot.ie/2013/01/coffee-body-scrub.html


    Bring on the spring. I want it too!!!
