Fall & Winter Skincare Essentials 2017

Fall & Winter Skincare Essentials 2017

Hey Guys!!  Are you all not just loving this cooler fall weather?  This is my absolute favorite time of the year.  Besides all the cute fashions, its the perfect time to switch up your routine, particularly your skincare routine.

As the weather changes, so should the products you use.  During the fall and winter months, you always want to make sure you skin stays hydrated/moisturized and looking flawless!  So below are my go-to products to keeping up with making sure blemishes stay away, but ensuring we don’t have dry flakey skin!  So here we go:

Nourishing Cream Cleanser: (Beautycounter) – This cleanser is so creamy and moisturizing, its a great start to the day or when you’re prepping your skin for bed

Balancing + Charcoal Mask: (Beautycounter) –  It is very important to incorporate a facial mask into your skincare routine, but its also important to know that there are different types of masks to target different concerns.  This charcoal mask I use 1-2 times a week to help extract impurities and keep my skin clear.  I use this after removing my cleanser.

Blue Agave Mask: (PUR) –  This is another mask that is awesome to incorporate into your routine.  This is a mask that is geared towards adding moisture and hydration. What I love the most about this mask is that its a peel-off!! Those are just fun, right?!?

Balancing Exfoliator: (Biologique Recherche) – Ya’ll, the claims on this product are real!  YES, its crazy expensive BUT it is truly a “facial in a bottle!” This is a cult favorite, P50 is a magic potion that does it all. Exfoliates, Hydrates, and Balances the pH of the skin, it’s a prep step before any skincare. I use this as my step after I remove my facial mask, OR if its a night I do not use a mask, I use after my toner.

Nourishing Eye Cream: (Beautycounter) –  the saying is true here, “a little goes a long way!” Eye creams are essential in my book, and this is a great one to start with if you are new to the game!  Keep the bags and dark circles away!

Nourishing Night Cream: (Beautycounter) –  every routine must end with added moisture, so this nourishing night cream will do the trick. Its not super greasy like some other moisturizers, and after it dries down it makes your skin feel silky smooth.

Peppermint Lip Conditioner: (Beautycounter) –  This lip conditioner is a lifesaver, and the fact that its peppermint scented and flavored is even better.  I use this every morning and every night as my final step.  Listen to me ya’ll, this will SAVE your lips!!!

Lip Shield: (Rodan + Fields) –  As an added step for continued moisture throughout the day on extremely cold days, I always keep my Lip Shield in my purse

Strobe Cream: (MAC) – With it being cold (fall/winter) weather, I always have to make sure my skin still has that glowy look we all love. So this strobe cream/moisturizer is perfect.  It also adds another layer of hydration.  Once your skin has been prepped with your final skincare step, use this strobe cream before laying down your foundation and continuing your makeup routine.

Setting Mist: (Morphe) – THE CHAMP IS HERE!!! Ya’ll this is the absolute BEST setting spray I have ever used.  I have been using the Kat Von D Lock-It Setting Spray for the last year, but when Morphe launched this “mist” it immediately won me over! the fact that its a continuous mist and not a spray makes for even application and avoids the wet marks that some sprays leave behind on your finished makeup look.

Alright ya’ll, thats it for me!  These items are essentials in my book.  I hope you all check them out and love them as much as I do.  Also, be sure to let me know in the comments below what some of your favorite essential skincare items are for the fall/winter months!
