Winter Skincare Routine 2018
Winter might be over but the harsh winter conditions are certainly not! Investing in skincare has made all the difference for me this season. Most of my routine revolves around a new facial care system that I started about 10 months ago: The Daily Skincare Program By Zo Skin Health. I am currently using phase one of their anti aging system and I love it! The combination of products in the kit treat my existing skin problems while protecting my skin from any climate. Since I'm only 24, my phase has fewer anti-aging factors and more cleansing and acne treating elements. They call it "the first line of defense against the natural aging process". Below are all the products included in the program: a cleanser, toner, exfoliator, daily powder defense, and primer. My favorite products are the exfoliator and the primer. The exfoliator gives me a deep cleanse that is gentle on my skin while the primer gives me a smooth base and and extra layer of protection.

Along with my daily system, I love to treat my skin to a good mask. My two biggest skin issues are dryness and clogged pores, so I have a mask for each issue. My current favorite is the self-preserving Mask of Magnaminty by Lush. Every time I use it my skin feels fresh and hydrated and my pores, so tiny! I've also been using the Dead Sea Mud Mask from Amazon. I use a mask 3-4 times a week. Before applying a mask, I always open up my pores by rinsing my face with warm water.

Now let's talk body care! I recently discovered my love for The Body Shop. During the winter, their body butters have been my saving grace. My skin gets so dry that most lotions and oils do nothing for me. Once I started using body butters everything changed! My favorite scents are Almond Milk & Honey and Olive. Shop below:

Everyone needs a good exfoliating body bar. Exfoliating scrubs away dead skin cells and keeps targeted areas smooth and silky. I usually exfoliate my body three time a week. Sandstone by Lush is my absolute favorite! Shop some more of my favorites below:
