I like to use First Aid Beauty  Ultra Repair Cream right after my shower and before bed.. It leaves my skin feeling so moisturized.. I also use my sonic face brush to remove dead skin cells and cleanse with a facial cleanser... on days when I feel I need more... after moisturizing I use an oil such as tarte maracuja oil or Josie argan oil... or even coconut oil,,which you can also put in your hair.. I also wear less foundation and lean torwards bb or cc creams

I just have to agree with you. Winder causes a lot of windburns, as well.  You might want to add creams that will help you get rid of them. Better yet, combine it with the right clothing. Avoiding exposure to too extreme temperatures is one of the best ways to help the skin.

How is it? Did you get one already? These burns are already patching in my face and I have to fix them quick. Working with the most practical remedies just will not work with this kind of extreme weather. Also, I want the products to be less toxic. I have heard that working with lead and mercury can cause serious health problems.

I have extremely dry skin. I use Lush Seaweed Face Mask every few days. In between I use Burt's Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser. Sometimes I also use Eucerin calming oil and I scrub with a loofa to bring up all of the dead skin cells. I always moisturize my face after washing with St. Ives lotion. And I only use liquid foundation, so it will not cake on my skin. All of the products I listed are a more natural solution for your face that will not burn or be too harsh for your skin.

I've been using Mirage Argan Oil by Crave Naturals. I used to have really dry skin and now with this product its added a lot more moisture. Check out the product on Amazon.

Because I already have extremely dry skin I have to make sure that instead of moisturizing once a day, I do at (least) twice daily. Without it the cold air just seems to suck all the moisture out of my face and I end up with these red marks around the side of my face (side of the nose, around the eyebrows) and it even becomes painful!

The best way to treat dry skin is to drink plenty of water. The second way is to apply aloe vera gel on your face for 15-20 minutes twice a day. This wonderful substance is antiseptic and antifungal as well as being able to cool hot dry skin.

For winter I normally load my skin up with cream, normal body lotion. Not so much that my face gets really oily and yukky, but enough to moisturize. :-)

Yes definitely! I was talking to a makeup artist and we both agreed many women change their makeup during winter and summer. Mostly because in summer you are probably darker too.

Our skin dry suffer during the cold winter months. So use coconut oil on your face. This is natural way and moisturize overnight. I always try to do this method in winter.

@lacylei I have naturally oilier skin, but in the winter I get patchy, flaky dry spots on the sides of my chin. I've been using pomegranate seed oil for those parts of my face and haven't had a problem with my skin. Some oils are more comedogenic than others, and since I'm prone to breakouts, I have to use oils that are rated 0 on the comedogenic scale. (0 means it is the least likely to cause breakouts, 1 is that it can, but is unlikely, while 4 is that most people would break out and 5 is the worst.) My husband used argan oil and loves it, too, and it's good for aging skin (and hair! but just use a tiny bit!) Another thing I do less of in the winter is powder. It tends to dry my skin further. If I put a BB cream or a little foundation. I'll set it very lightly with powder, but I'll use very little. If your skin flakes at all, powder can make the dry areas very obvious. Also, as I see someone mentioned above, drinking LOTS of water to moisturize from the inside out!

@vishnu priya It has resolved the problem for me. Before bed, I use a Vitamin C serum, wait a minute or so, then use a couple drops of the pomegranate seed oil and massage it in really well. I wear it alone or under my BB tinted cream during the day. Let me know how it goes!

My skin is oily - but once in a while, my surface skin will be very dry and this makes my makeup looks so cakey..

What i do is, i will do a mask at home do give some moisture brighten the skin..

I will also go for facial - once a month... if there is an impt event, i will do my facial 2 days before the event.. the skin will looks so much better with make up and my skin texture is smoother after the facial..

I do recommend similar treatment like this one below... u may want to check around if there is such treatment in your country

Note: My skin type is oily (sometimes will have dry skin but that is on the surface only)

Yes my skincare routine changes in winters and i keep my skin more hydrated and moisturized. It gets dry and dull, so moisturizing is the most important thing one can do in winters.

I use Majestic Coconut Oil. but IMPORTANT! Use when skin is wet. I do right after taking a shower when you still water on skin. Don't use towel. Just apply it when with water on your skin from shower. Rub until it observed.  Try. I usually pay $20 but its on sale now. waimore.com/2019/01/01/majestic-coconut-oil/

    • This Advent Calendar sounds amazing!! Thanks so much for sharing!!
    • I am going on a No Buy (replacements only) in January and February. My goal is to pay off a credit card of $140 (accounting for interest, I will need to pay off around $150), and to use up my deluxe sample sized beauty items. The same resolution I have every year, but this time it's different. I'll be paying off the last in a very long series of mini debts I had in my debt snowball, after two years of paying things off. After that I'll be going into a different phase, working on larger debts. Also, I am starting with far, far fewer sample beauty products than I used to, having used so many up in the last two years.  It's exciting, getting to the end of this phase. I'm going to be going through my samples in the next two weeks and getting ready! It's a good way to start the year, with smaller goals and easier wins. 
    • Do you like card games? for example poker?
    • Advent calendar: Day 8 - Bright red nail polish - Polish was so easy to apply, and lasted well. I got several compliments on it.  Day 9 - At the Heart of Pine Trees Holiday Shower Gel - a fresh orange scent with a soft wood note.  Day 10 - Apricot body scrub.  Day 11 - Hydrating micellar water.  Day 12 - Plein Soleil Perfume - I love the perfume! It is tuberose with a hint of cardamom, to evoke travels to the East.  Day 13 - At the Heart of Pine Trees matching body lotion.  Day 14 - Mango Coriander Shower Gel.  I've been feeling the pressure of the holidays this month! I've been frustrated, because I have not been able to make progress on paying my credit card off by the end of the year. It's looking like it's not going to happen. I wanted to pay it off by the end of the year just because of perfectionism. Since it was the last in the series of smaller balance debts in my debt snowball, I thought it would be nice to have it done by New Year's Eve and start January with a larger goal. After having a relaxed day (I went to the park for a walk and saw baby deer!), I finally thought of something that made it okay to defer that goal a bit. I realized I won't be finished with my mini beauty products by the New Year either. I have far fewer than in past years, but I'll still have some to get through. I always had the concept of using my mini sample products and paying my smaller debts (the easier goals) and after that was through, I would use up full sized products while paying off larger debts. After thinking of that, I felt it would be okay to make a new plan and give myself January and February to pay my last small bill ($140) while using up the mini products. Then in March I can begin work on larger debts and larger products! I did achieve all of my 2019 New Year's Resolutions, and paid off five credit cards this year, and I'm very happy with that. I'm not going to go on a shopping spree and buy myself a lot of things with credit cards, but I do need to make it through Christmas!       
    • I think Makeup brushes are a base for makeup, especially for this set of makeup brushes, highly recommended.
