The 5 Products That Saved My Skin This Winter

Alright y'all, winter is almost over but I (FINALLY)found a skin routine that has saved me this season. I've tried so many products and nothing could truly quench my skin's thirst until these magical products.

1, 2, 3


The Cleanser: Finding a cleanser that didn't dry out my skin has been the hardest. Every product I tried left my skin even more dry then before adding to the never ending circle. That is, until I found Caudalie's Gentle Cleansing Milk. Just as it is described - she is gentle, hydrating, and still gets the job done cleaning my face. Despite how wonderful this cleanser is, I still only use it once a day and I will use Thayer's Witch Hazel Rose Petal Toner in the morning to prevent all of the natural oils from being stripped.

Oils & Moisturizers: I don't want to say these two products alone saved my life... but, the Biossance's Squalane + Viatmin C Rose Oil combined with Biossance's Squalane + Probiotic Gel Mositurizer makes my skin the happiest it has ever been. I use both of these products morning and night and they leave my skin hydrated and glowing even in this unforgiving weather. If I feel like my skin needs an extra boost I will apply Aquaphor, yup I said it, Aquaphor on my face at night and I will wake up feeling refreshed.

Peel: I use Skin Food's Pineapple Peel Gel once a week as my exfoliator. This product is super inexpensive and works magic on my face. I always make Sky watch me when I use this product because I want him to see all the dead skin that comes off my face lol.

Scar Treatment: You guys might remember me getting bit by a dog this past July that left a scar underneath my lip. Since then I have applied Vitamin E oil and Mederma on the scar daily. Since she is still so fresh I have not noticed too much of a difference but will continue to report updates for those searching for scar treatments :)

Yay for happy glowy skin in winter! Comment below if you have any questions or recommendations! xoxo
