Winter Skin Care Routine

Winter Skin Care Routine

Hello epic humans! Today I’m sharing my Winter Skin Care Routine with you. This was a highly requested video. While everything I use is cruelty-free, I do incorporate a mix of drugstore, midrange, high-end, and indie brands into my winter skin care routine. Skin care doesn’t have to be expensive to be effective! My goal is to get my skin to be beautiful and glowy, despite being dry and having rosacea. And most of my skin care products are vegan, too!

About My Skin

I’m 42 years old and my skin is dry. I have additional concerns of redness from rosacea, a touch of serborrheic dermatitis, a little bit of texture, a dash of hyperpigmentation, as well as sensitive skin. I want my skin care to be anti-aging as well.

Cleanser

  1. Burt’s Bees Face Cleanser for Sensitive Skin (LB)
  2. Microfiber Wash Cloth

There are a lot of great cleansers out there, but nothing beats the Burt’s Bees Face Cleanser for Sensitive Skin both in the amount of product you get for the price and with how soothing the formula is on my skin. I still try new things from time to time but I keep coming back to this cleanser, which is fabulous for my dry sensitive skin.

Exfoliants and Rosacea Control

  1. Pixi Overnight Glow Serum (v)
  2. The Ordinary Azelaic Acid (v)

With sensitive skin like mine, I find chemical exfoliants to be more gentle on my face than a physical exfoliant. I would not use the Pixi Overnight Glow Serum more than twice a week. I use the Ordinary Azelaic Acid whenever I am having a rosacea flare to help my skin. During cold and dry weather, I don’t exfoliate more than once a week, and sometimes no more than twice a month. It is entirely possible to irritate your skin by exfoliating too much, as well as cause it to be dry or dehydrated. So don’t over exfoliate!

Cruelty-Free Makeup Removers

Winter Skin Care Routine

  1. The Makeup Eraser Cloths
  2. Eira Vancouver Makeup Rounds Container & Laundry Bag
  3. Velour Lash Clean Oil-Free Makeup Remover (v)
  4. Vike Makeup Melt Spray
  5. Bliss Makeup Wipes (v)(PETA)
  6. Mehron Extra Gentle Eye Makeup Remover (PETA)

I’m testing out the Mehron eye makeup remover but so far I prefer the Velour Lash Clean Oil-Free Makeup Remover to it. I use the Bliss Makeup Wipes for removing swatches on my arms and hands for the most part. On rare occasion I will take my makeup off with a Bliss Makeup Wipe. They don’t irritate my skin, but I prefer to use Makeup Eraser Cloths for the most part. I will spritz the Vike Makeup Melt Spray onto a makeup eraser and use that to take off my face makeup. Then I put a little of the Velour Makeup Remover on a Makeup Eraser Cloth and use that on my eyes.

What I love about the Makeup Eraser Cloths are that they are very environmentally friendly and don’t create the same waste as cotton rounds. The Eira Vancouver Makeup Rounds Container & Laundry Bag help me stay organized and prevent me from losing my Makeup Eraser Cloths. The clean ones go inside the bamboo container (which I’ll probably paint black at some point). The dirty ones go into the laundry bag. I wash them in the washing machine once a week on high heat, then let them air dry.
