Winter is harsh for my skin. I've probably never mentioned this here, but my skin is one of the most complicated in the world, even though some girls is envious how smooth my skin is. Well don't get mystified.
Every girl has skin issues, some more, some less. My skin was absolutely great when I was younger, occasional pimple but that was about it. Well, age made its marks and so did stress. So to describe how my skin is, I draw this:
How would you describe it? Mixed sensitive? Can somebody help?
Unfortunately for me, I cannot put any natural creams for sensitive skin, because there's always a "calming" plant, that I have allergy to and it always makes situation worse. Oily skin needs to be dried with tonic, but if that touches my recess, it's a hell. My eye cream is either coconut oil, camomile cream or kernel oil.
I got this one for Christmas and even though the smell is nothing special, it's perfect for skin and body. It's doesn't leave oily film for long and it's supposed to be good for wrinkles. I use it on my stretch marks and they cure faster. Also, ideal treatment for winter.
I also discovered Kiehl's cream that doesn't hurt my redness around nose, hydrates well and is not oily. It's a basic line, I would say, but it works for me. Plus, I have to say, that my experience in the store was perfect, because the sales assistant was amazing, sweet and she listened, advise me and even gave me some small testers to try. I really loved the store!
Another perfect winter find is eukalypt lip balm Rituals - Smooth Operator. It protects lips nicely, smells amazing ang gives you the fresh feeling on your lips. Plus it has metalic cover so the lid won't break like my every other lip balm. The only downside is, it's not very cheap but we only live once.
We will stay a little longer with Rituals, because they also have this amazing hand scrub called Miracle Scrub, that is very similar to SPA Manicure by O.P.I.. Well and now writing about it I found out they don't have it anymore. So sad.
And the last item is the basic. Antiperspirant.
The same way my skin issues arise, the extensive sweating came. Nothing great about that. And even though I am trying to avoid deodorants and antiperspirants with alluminium salts, sometimes I cannot get without them. Especially sweting like I do.
This one from Rituals - Ritual of Sakura is great and smells amazing. So I highly recommend. But it has those salts so try to switch it up from time to time. Use either some home made or steal your boyfriend's Old Spice. There are no salts in that one.
