How to save your skin from the winter.

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed Halloween, my fridge looks like I've had a party in Tesco there is so many packs of sweets... 
Anyway now that's over and we are into November yikes the weather will defo go cold wintery windy you name it and that's not good for your skin, including 
the biggest culprit central heating.

So what do you do? 
Well you have to step up your skin care routine big time.
This includes drinking lots of water and lots of facial care and masks. So I've selected a few I like using and I'm using at the moment.

Clinique: Moisture Surge Overnight Mask

This is one of my favourites, I slap this on after I come out the bath once I double cleansed my face and my pores are still open.  The texture is quite thick but I think you need that to combat the weather.  I find the mask sinks in really well and quick so you can go to bed knowing you won't have a 
big greasy face mark on your pillow.

Elemis: Papaya Enzyme Peel

I do already like a lot of Elemis products they are recognised as a leading skincare brand and with good reason.  They are not particularly good if your on a bit of a budget but if you want decent results in this case it's worth paying.  The Papaya Peel is lovely to apply smells fruity and is luxurious to apply. In terms of exfoliating this masks does that but in the most gentle way...Exfoliating is still key to help your masks work.

GlamGlow Youth Mud 

This is a newish purchase for me I've been late buying this as I know a lot of bloggers have raved about it for a while, but I don't always jump on the band wagon and I've had a lot of other skincare to use up.  So if you have used this you will know how this works but if not, this is a mud like mask (the name may have given that clue) the good thing it's not as messy as I thought, you apply it on your face and it drys quickly I'd say in about ten minutes and then you rinse off with warmish water.  I find this leaves my face clear smooth and glowing.

I hope this helps anyone who struggling with their skin this winter.

What do you like to help your skin.
