In the meantime, I've restocked my arsenal of winter beauty products I use to cope and prevent myself from appearing like an apple core doll by December!! Some of them you may already use and some may be new. I have sensitive skin that has bouts of rosacea and also acne. Argh! I've spent years finding what doesn't make me break out while searching for natural ingredients whenever I can.
Here's my personal cold weather favorites. Some natural and plant based and a few are not. You can find a link online for each in the names, if you can't find in your stores.
Cerave Hydrating Cleanser is all I ever use now. My dermo first got me onto this and it leaves a layer of protection after washing with it that prevents irritation and redness flare-ups. It's easily found at most drugstores now. I know so many friends who also are hooked on this! Two ingredients - ceramides prevent irritation and redness and hyaluronic acid which attracts moisture make this special thought it looks quite generic in packaging and price. Hyaluronic acid is wonderful at plumping up the skin and making it soft. Dr Oz's blog also wrote about it's benefits.
Vitamen C Ester Serum by Perricone MD I have to have a serum in winter and fall and this is wonderful for brightening and giving a glow. I like to layer this one under my sunscreen, but I have also used the Jan Marini one and in a pinch the $36 all natural Jason version, has been good too. I just always like to be using a C Ester product to keep free radicals at bay and help with dark spots. I do find religious use does make a difference.
Weleda Calendula Baby Face Cream. I found this by accident when shopping for their Skin Food. As with all Weleda products, it's all plant based and so pure it's almost edible. It's a little cheaper than the their other face creams and I actually like it better. I pat this on at night to wake up with baby soft skin and also use it over my retin-a that I deploy a few nights a week. I have it by my bed and in my purse too. Love!
