Slather me Up


I lot of people here have asked me what my skin care routine is, and how come I do not have dry scaly skin in the winter months. I am OCD about moisturizing and I think there lies the answer

So, here is my winter skincare routine.

Face: in the mornings I wash my face with Clinique face bar, and then I use a gentle exfoliator-either Clinique or Himalya. Then I apply the Clinique No 2 toner for combination skin, and finally I moisturize.

Daily use light scrubs

At night I wash my face with Neutrogena, tone and finally apply Bio Oil.

Try getting a facial at least once a month, but if like me you get lazy you can easily do one at home. Which is what I usually end up doing: cleanse, exfoliate, steam, pack, and moisturize.

Body: I exfoliate once a week. I am a big fan of Lush Ocean Salt, and Soap & Glory scrubs. But at the moment I am use The Body Shop’ olive body scrub. DSC_0099

During the winter months I also use a body oil in addition to my body butter, and it helps to lock the moisture in. I am currently using Palmer’s body oil, and Soap & Glory body butter.DSC_0105

Hands: Even if I wash my hands 50 times a day, I will moisturize no matter what. I think I got the excessive hand washing habit from my mom. I am currently using Burt’s Bees hand cream at home, and since I ran out of my travel size Soap and Glory hand cream, I carry a mini aloe vera Vaseline tub.DSC_0102

Feet: Come winters, a pet peeve of mine-ok all the time-is cracked dry feet. I see women at weddings all the time dressed to the nines, and wearing heavy jewelry and they are in desperate need of a pedicure. Before I hit the bed, I apply a generous amount of foot cream and wear socks, which really help keep your feet smooth plus they help against the cold. I am currently using Attitude by Amway.

Hair: my hair routine stays the same come winter or summer. I am lucky that my hair is quite easy to deal with. Since I am still feeding, I wanted to stay away from strong products and hence have stopped using my beloved L’oreal Professional shampoo and switched over to Tresemme, and so far I love it.DSC_0100

Personally, I am sucker for yummy scented products, thus my love for Soap and Glory, in addition to the cute packaging, and the fact that it is amazing on my skin.
