Hello again lovelies!
Its's time for another Winter-Proof yourself post. If you haven't seen my first two, you can check out the one on hair here and the one on clothing and accessories here.
So in this post I'm going to explain how I personally take care of my skin during the winter, obviously the products I use may not work for everyone but I'll help as much as I can and I'm sure you can adapt it to your skin type.
I actually have relatively normal skin on my face, it can be slightly oily in the T-Zone, but not so much in the Winter. I don't suffer too much with dry skin, but my skin can get very sore and red in the cold weather so I like to use  a light moisturiser after cleansing and toning to make soothe it a bit. I'm actually quite easy to please with moisturisers, the two in the picture are the ones I'm currently using. The Murad one is running out and as it's a sample size, it was much cheaper than the full size, so I'm not sure if I'll be splashing out just yet. I actually love the Palmers Cocoa butter moisturiser for my face so I think I'll buy that next. I use the Piz Buin one in the mornings as it's quite light and very moisturising, but mostly because I don't bother with fake tan in the winter and it has just a hint of colour to it so it perks my skin up just a bit.
Winter tip - Remember you still need an SPF moisturiser where possible in the winter too, just because you can't see the sun it doesn't mean it's not there! 
For the body, I honestly don't think there is anything better than Body Shop Body Butters though, I adore them! Almond is my all time favourite for sure, I love it! I really want to get the Cranberry one they have for Christmas though.
One thing you have to be super careful to take care of is your hands, my hands can get really dry in the winter - and this is bad news, especially as a trainee beauty therapist! A good hand cream is always good to have in your bag. I love this Garnier one, it's suuuper cheap and one of the best I've ever tried!
Winter tip - Always apply hand cream before going outside and wear gloves, it will lock in the essential moisture while keeping your hands protected from the cold.
I also carry a mini Palmer's Cocoa butter around in my bag, this is great for dry skin pretty much anywhere. I use it on dry elbows, hands arms etc. It's also really great on my tattoo!

I hope this was helpful to some of you, do you have any favourite products for the winter?
