My Fave Winter Skin Care Products

As a winter sports enthusiast, by the time December and January roll around, I'm ready to hit the slopes along with everyone else. While many snow sport fanatics, male and female, spend plenty of money on new gear: ski boots, ski jackets or snowboard pants few people stop to think about the importance of skin care. Our skin takes a beating every winter, especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors.
Dry, chapped or wind-burned skin is misery, especially when combined with the general "Winter Blues" feeling that sets in sometime around February. Check out these few products to help keep your skin in great shape all winter long:
  1. Olay Complete Defense Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30: Olay Complete Defense Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30 Once winter hits, many people make the mistake of shelving their sunscreen. Big mistake. Though the sun is elusive in winter, it sill shines. And, not only does it shine, but its reflection can be brutal. For someone outdoors often, sunscreen is an absolute must. The sunscreen moisturizer is especially great because it protects skin from the sun's rays and keeps it from drying out all at once. You can kill two birds with one stone: moisture and protection. It's also a good idea to wear a light coat of sunscreen at any time with a combination of snow and sunshine. Even if you're indoors, the sun's rays can still reflect off the snow and onto you. The Olay moisturizer is great for all skin types, especially those with sensitive skin. It's light and moist without being overly oily, which can be tough to pull off. 
  2. Neutrogena Ageless Essentials: Neutrogena ageless essentials A lot of times, we forget how convenient nighttime is for moisturizing. Without being exposed to outside elements, nighttime is the perfect opportunity to let the skin moisturize, recover and rejuvenate. Neutrogena's Ageless Essentials Continuous Hydration for Night Moisturizer features a time-released moisturizing system that keeps skin replenished and hydrated all night long. It's also infused with glycerin, which increases the skin's ability to rebuild itself and retain enough moisture for a healthy glow, without looking oily. You can use the product every night after washing your face thoroughly or even under make up throughout the day.(Update: This product is discontinued. Try this instead; it is also as effective: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Night Concentrate 50 ml )

With a few must-have skin care items that can do double-duty and even work overnight, your skin will make it through winter with resounding strength and a triumphant glow. Whether you're like me and need something to withstand the windy slopes or just something to keep your face feeling fresh at the office, these products are sure to please!

    Best to keep up skin care all year round. Just cleanse and moisturize your face twice a day. And while your still wet out of the shower, cover yourself in olive oil, cheap brand is good enough, and you don't need much, let it dry before dressing, keeps your skin really velvety soft

    In winter I buy the following
    The best foundation i could find to cover up my troublesome skin and keep it moisturized.
    A bunch of thick warm woolly tights.
    A Vivienne West wood pom pom scarf, pink jumper and red skirt that I saw. The scarf is the cosiest, softest thing ever.
    There are a few dresses I'd love to own, a nice body con dress as i don't have one yet, all my dresses in my wardrobe are floaty, i'd love a sexy skin tight dress or skirt.
    I'd buy my mum a house!
    All of the Barry M nail varnishes in every shade, and eyeliners in every shade.
    All of the Benefit range would do me nicely.
    A nice warm trench coat.
    This is hard, that's all i can think of for now. Oh and a warm & soft cashmere blanket.
