When the weather is harsh outdoors, my main priority is to stop my face falling off, without having to spend hours patting unguents into my face…I am the queen of up, shower, shampoo, dry, make up and out the door in 30 minutes, I just cannot be doing with a 1hr 30 minute morning faff.
So, whilst my winter skin procedure changes from week to week as I try out new products, here is this past week’s enormously successful regimen.
Every 2-3 days I do a very light facial exfoliation in the shower with the mildest product I can find to get rid of any flaking: in this case, Caudalie Gentle Buffing Cream £18. Then the moment I am out of the shower, I slap on Darphin Hydraskin Intensive Skin-Hydrating Serum £41 , which I let soak in whilst I brush my teeth, and then add on either Soap & Glory’s 6-in-1 Superboost Moisture Lotion £12 if I am working from home, or Jo Malone’s Vitamin E cream with SPF15 if I am going outdoors.
In the evening I am using This Works’ Clean Skin 5 in 1 Water £21, which is hydrating and leaves absolutely no pore-blocking residue on the skin, the Darphin Hydraskin Intensive Skin-Hydrating Serum and Soap & Glory’s 6-in-1 Superboost Moisture Lotion £12
My skin is really soft, plumped and I have absolutely no rosacea lumps, bumps or spots. I particularly rate the Soap & Glory moisturiser of which I had no expectations at all. £12 too! It really is a winter wonder product.
