My Winter Skin Care Routine

Despite the fact that spring is quickly approaching, it has been pretty cold and windy lately, so I've been diligent about sticking to my skin care routine. Here are my must-haves for winter! 

I have dry-combination, acne-prone skin so I've had to find a balance between products that prevent acne but don't dry out my skin. Evening morning and night, I wash my face with Garnier's PureControl Acne Cleanser which is great for preventing blemishes without being too drying. I actually find it more effective than a similar (more expensive) product from Clinique! My cheeks tend to get quite dry, so in that area I use Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+. This stuff works wonders! I used to get patchy, dry rashes on my face during the winter and that stopped once I tried this moisturizer. On my t-zone I apply Clinique's Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, which is oil-free, so it won't clog pores. Clinique moisturizers are a little pricy but I can't recommend them enough.

Regular chapsticks don't cut it for me, so I use Vaseline which works MIRACLES. I forgot to bring Vaseline with me when I went skiing in December and my lips were insanely dry and painful. When I finally got to a drug store, I didn't want to buy a massive tub of Vaseline (there was 0 space in my suitcase, oops) so I got the Lip Therapy in Cocoa Butter which smells amazing and fits in to a clutch. 

St. Ives Nourish and Soothe Oatmeal and Shea Butter Body Lotion is great because it's moisturizing, but not greasy. It also leaves you smelling like a oatmeal muffins.
