As we go through the Winter to Spring transition many faces have suffered. Whatever your skin type; dry, combination, normal, oily; Your skin has most probably taken a hit from the shift in weather conditions right? Mine definitely has, for a couple of months now my skin has been at its worst ever. Breakouts, dry patches and dullness. So I took action and with some research and recommendations to hand I went out and panic bought as many skincare products I could, in hopes they would salvage my skin.
I can happily say my skin is now starting to get back on track and is almost back to its normal PH balance! So, I bring to you my Spring Skin Saviours! These products have worked wonders on my skin within a matter of days. Bear in mind everyone’s skin is different so not all these products featured may necessarily work for your skin but they are definitely worth a trial, especially if your skin is feeling as defeated as mine was!
My skin type:
- Normal to dry
The product: Nivea Soft Moisturising Cream
How to apply: With clean hands, use your fingertips to massage into skin.
Review: Recommended by my sister, I ran out to get this cream as she said it was great for tight dry skin. After applying just twice a day for two days my skin dramatically changed from dry and taught to soft, supple and my complexion much brighter. And the great thing about this cream is that it can also be used for your body too, so you don’t have to spend money on multiple creams!
The product: Garnier Micellar Water (pictured above)
How to apply: Squirt on to a cotton pad and gently swipe over face in circular motions.
Review: The past year has been all about micellar water, everyones gone crazy about it and for a good reason to. Gone are the days of the long tired cleansing and toning routines to remove your make-up, with this magic water your make-up is removed and your skin cleansed all in one step. I love the Garnier branded water in particular as its great for my sensitive skin and super cheap. Naughtily I was using make-up wipes for a while to cleanse my face as i ran out of cleanser, so my skin become taught and spotty. But after ditching the wipes and using this water for a few days my skin has really cleared up.
The product: Boots Tea Tree and witch Hazel Charcoal Face Mask
How to apply: Splash face with warm water and apply the mask with clean hands to your face. Leave on for 5-10 minutes removing with warm water.
Review: I’ve been searching for a good face mask for a while that can combat my skins unexpected behaviour. Of late my skin has become combination, with spots, oiliness and dry patches. Which is very odd as my skin is usually a very calm normal to dry type. My friend recommended this face mask having used it herself and as my skin always reacts well to witch hazel I thought I’d give it a go! With active charcoal, I could actually feel the mask deeply cleansing through the pores in my skin. And it completely restored my oily skin back to its normal state, leaving my skin feeling fresh and soft.
