Looking After Your Skin During Autumn/Winter (Face)

by
Our skin goes through a lot during the change of seasons and sometimes it can leave us completely out of pocket from all the products we buy to try and fix it. I try to keep my skincare routine, up to date and in tune with what my skin needs. My skin is typically quite oily so I have to be very aware of the makeup products, skin care routine and even face washes I use on my skin in case it causes my skin to produce excess oils. However, recently the top of my forehead and around my nose has started to feel quite dry, yet I still have an oily T-zone. I’m not used to my skin feeling dry so I had to incorporate some different products into my routine to combat the dryness which I thought might be helpful for some of you. Not only that, but I have also come across some products which have been raved about online which I’d love to try this season and I thought I’d make you all aware too in case you fancy a skincare splurge for yourselves.
3-in-1 Micro-Foaming Facial Cleansing Brush

I have seen face brushes like this across social media for years – but had never seen the point in them. Give me a face wash and a flannel any day, much less hassle. However, it wasn’t until I did some digging into products like skin care uk panasonic, that I saw several before and after photos of girls’ skin journey’s.
I think a lot of my bad skin comes down to poor makeup removal; that might sound gross but let’s think about it, sometimes makeup does sink into a pores and it might take more than our hands or a flannel to dig into our skin to properly clean it. Looking after your skin in the change in weather is so important because it can really take a toll on your skin, which is why I’m looking to purchase this on payday.
The bottom end of this brush is a makeup remover, and the top half with the bristles is for the cleaning of the skin. The bristles work in a circular motion to provide a gentle but thorough clean. This brush is £149 which is quite pricey but if you do have problem skin, which I think I’m starting to develop, I think this would a great investment for me personally and I couldn’t not share with you all!
Panasonic also have some other luxury skincare pieces (under £200.00) if you aren’t a fan of or don’t like the sound of this one (click here)
Face Masks

Face masks are a crucial part of my skincare routine – I try to use two masks a week to help my skin from drying out and staying hydrated instead. My favourite mask to use at the moment is The Body Shop Mediterranean Almond Milk With Oats Instant Soothing Mask which I use when my skin is feeling dry and dehydrated. The mask consistency is build-able so you can layer the mask up for a thicker coverage or just a thin layer.
For sheet masks I use Garnier from Superdrug because sometimes a sheet mask just gives you that extra moisture if your skin is feeling dry and uncomfortable in the colder temperatures.
For the oily parts of my skin, such as my T zone, I use the L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Detox Face Mask because this truly drys out my spots and soaks up the excess oils from my skin. In the colder months when I use this mask I make sure to hydrate my skin afterwards with a moisturiser to prevent cracking and peeling.
Hand Cream for Eczema

In the cold weather, particularly in windy conditions, my eczema flares up between the webs in my fingers. It can be extremely painful, comfortable and sore – so keeping my hands hydrated is so important. I’ve tried a few hand creams and many have kept my hands hydrated for around half an hour or so, and then I have to reapply. I’d been on the hunt for a long lasting hand cream for so long that wasn’t strongly scented to ensure it wouldn’t flare up my eczema – and I’ve found it.
This Shea Hand Cream from The Body Shop is the ideal cream for those with eczema or those who just want a heavy duty and long lasting, hydrating hand cream.
Lip Balm

Chapped lips is something everyone will experience at least once in their life. It become very sore and uncomfortable if it isn’t treated or prevented. Lip balms are such a basic tool for your skincare routine but something a lot of people forget to use. You can get unbranded ones from supermarkets for as little as 99p or branded ones such as the Maybeline Baby Lips which are my personal favourites. There are a variety of lip balms in the Baby Lips collection; from tinted, to scented and both! To stop your lips from drying out and looking awful underneath a gloss or lipstick, remember to use a lip balm!
