For the most part my skincare routine stays pretty consistent with a Murad 3-step regimen. After cleansing and toning I apply a treatment product, then moisturize and put on an eye cream. Twice a week I use Murad’s AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser, no matter what season it is. My winter skincare routine is the same, but I just swap out a few products for something more hydrating.
In the winter I switch my Daily Cleansing Foam for Refreshing Cleanser. It’s a creamy cleanser that leaves your skin feeling fresh and hydrated. This cleanser removes makeup and dirt and won’t make your eye sting if you use it to help remove eye makeup. It’s made with cucumber extract to help soothe and soften the skin.
I also change out my treatment product and my weekly mask. I need to be better about keeping up with my relaxing mask time, but it’s definitely a much needed step in the routine. After cleansing and toning I apply Rapid Collagen Infusion all over my face, neck and decollate. This product is amazing! It has a smooth velvety texture and makes your skin feel hydrated and wrinkle free. Whether you have fine lines and wrinkles or want to start taking preventative measures, this fast acting anti-aging product will quickly become your new favorite. It boosts the skin’s resiliency and supports the natural collagen and elastin of the skin.
In the winter I like to use a hydrating mask like Age-Diffusing Firming Mask. It’s made with Brazilian fruit extracts to support the natural collagen to plump the skin. This mask reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and gives the skin a youthful glow. Every time I remove the mask I feel like my skin is tighter and that I removed the stress lines. When you’re stressed your skin doesn’t have the same happy glow. So no matter how you’re feeling, use this mask and it will make you look and feel better.
The final step is moisturizer. Always moisturize your skin to keep it healthy and supple. I absolutely love Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture. It’s rich and luxurious without feeling greasy. I would bathe my whole body in this if I could. This super hydrating moisturizer not only revives dry skin, but it also helps restore resilience and improve the overall tone. It’s multi-acting and gentle for sensitive skin. I really can’t think of enough great things to say about this and all of it’s benefits.
Note: It’s important to take care of yourself and that includes taking care of your skin.
