Spring is almost here! I can’t believe it! Even though it’s almost time to put away the coats and winter essentials, I wanted to talk about my winter skincare routine for the year.
In the beginning of winter, I did not have a winter skincare routine, something I now regret. Although I did not have one, I discovered products in January that made my oily skin clean as well as hydrated. Since I will be changing my skincare routine to suit the spring and coming summer months, I wanted to share my routine, what products I used, and why.
The first thing I do in the morning is wash my face with a cleanser.
I usually use Burt’s Bees’ Sensitive Skin cleanser, but, after receiving a travel size of Fresh’s soy cleanser in the travel set from Sephora, I began to use it in place of the Burt’s Bees’ cleanser.
After that, I use Burt’s Bees’ Sensitive Skin daily moisturizer.
I wanted to use a daily facial moisturizer for years but could never find one that would not clog my pores. Even the oil free moisturizers clogged my pores. There was only one moisturizer that did not clog my pores, but it is no longer being made. (Or sold in my area) Burt’s Bees daily moisturizer is the only oil fee moisturizer that will not clog my pores and is still available.
At the end of the day, I always make sure to wash my face a night as well. I use Burt’s Bees cleanser again, but three times a week I use an exfoliating scrub. I like to use Target’s brand Up and Up exfoliating scrub, which is a generic version of St Ive’s Apricot Scrub. I prefer the Up and Up brand’s exfoliating scrub than the St Ive’s scrub because the St Ive’s clogs my pores while the Up and Up scrub does not.
After I cleanse and exfoliate, I apply Burt’s Bees Sensitive Skin night cream.
I wanted a night cream for a while but, like the daily moisturizer, I could never find one that would clog my pores. This one not only does not clog my pores, but also helps moisturize my skin and keep it feeling very soft and smooth.
Well, that’s my whole entire winter skincare routine! It’s not that elaborate, but I like to keep it as simple as possible.
