winter skincare by everydaygandb featuring a face moisturizer
I don't know if we have regular readers now, but I am sorry I have neglected the blog for so long. I am finishing up my last semester of school (hopefully I never have to go back). I have been so busy I haven't had time to blog or think about blogging. But that doesn't mean I haven't thought about all the things I have tried or want to write about.
Winter has hit here in my home state and I have forgotten how actually frigid cold it can be. When the weather turns my skin becomes so dehydrated and dry despite it how oily it actually is.
Just to give a little background on my skin - it sucks. I have oily, acne-prone skin and have suffered from skin problems for years. Yet despite the oiliness my skin gets very dry and dehydrated in the winter time. I get flakes of dry skin on my forehead and nose. My skin is also sensitive and doesn't like harsh chemicals.
Because of this in the winter I switch over to a gentler cleanser, one of my favorites is the philosophy purity cleanser. It cleans the skin so well and isn't drying. They have a gel version but I prefer the original.
I also love a moisturizer that is hydrating without being too thick. The Estee Lauder Day Wear is a nice balance and I love the fresh cucumber smell!
Lastly, chapstick! Any kind will do! I have always been a fan of Burts Bees natural and the stuff works.
