The weather is changing and it is feeling rather cold in these streets. I am huge on skincare and skin wellness and love trying out different products. My mother has been a makeup artist for 29 years and is an advocate for skin health and having great skin as a base for perfect makeup application, I’ve watched her take care of her skin for many years without cutting any corners and I must say it’s quite admirable, the woman hasn’t aged a wink. I wanted to put together this little guide of products that have been keeping my skin hydrated and glowing throughout these colder months, not only that but some of these products have really helped elevate my skin after pregnancy.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair
I will not be without this skincare product ever! This is my staple skincare product that I use day and night and can not and will not live without. I can’t begin to explain how this has truly helped give my skin back its glow and bounce after pregnancy. I put this on immediately after cleansing onto dry clean skin and it instantly replenishes the hydration. There is a reason this product has been around for years.
Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Moisturiser
WOW! If your looking for a thick luxurious moisturiser look no further. You will see throughout this guide that Fresh skincare makes up about 90% of my products. I only discovered this brand at the beginning of 2020, I mean have I been hiding under a rock!? 😒. It does exactly what it says it does, moisturises & Nourishes. This product is worth the coin, you will not be disappointed. A great base for makeup if you like that fresh, dewy finish.
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser
Thank you Fresh for this cleanser that is loved by so many. The first product to touch my skin morning and evening. This cleanser is perfect for removing makeup and doesn’t leave the skin feeling dry and stripped after using it and smells fabulous.
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5
If I’m honest I love a lot of The Ordinary's skincare, it’s not only reasonably priced but it’s effective. I admit I have put a lot of my Ordinary products away since discovering other brands mainly because I use a lot of their peeling products which is not what I opt for in winter but the one product I tend to use all year round is their hyaluronic acid which for me is one of the best on the market. Hyaluronic acid for me is mandatory when it comes to skin health.
Fresh Sugar Face Polish Exfoliator
I LOVE YOU! 😂 This product is seriously bomb, I even had to get Hubbie to use it and he agreed. I use this 2‑3 times a week and it’s insane for regenerating your skin. Your skin is left soft and supple after use. I call this ‘my spa in a jar’.
Fresh Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask
I haven’t felt a product with this texture before, it’s like their Rose moisturising cream but on steroids. This is perfect for when I’m preparing my skin for shoots. My once a week go to mask that I leave on overnight.
What are your skincare heroes and do you use any of my favs?
