Now that the winter weather is here this is when I start to change my skincare routine up ever so slightly. Can we just talk about how cold it is getting? certainly up in Scotland, I mean no change there but I got in my car this morning and it was 1 degree. This is when chapped lips and dry hands come out which is not attractive to look at nor does it feel nice. 

I always keep a chapstick on me at this time of year as I use it constantly so when I want to wear a beaut of a matter lipstick my lips wont look flaky yuk. I also always keep a hand cream on me as my hands get super chapped and can become quite painful in this weather, I hardly ever wear gloves just because i'm always on my phone lol! 

Onto my actual skincare routine, an absolute classic, Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish this is one of my absolute faves for taking off my make up and cleansing. I take off my make up with Micellar water and then cleanse twice with Liz Earle to make sure my face is completely make up free. I then go in with the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic which I use as a toner. 

Whilst I wait for that to dry a little and do it's thing I move on to moisturising my body which I have to admit this is probably a once or twice a week job because it's far too cold to be standing around and I'm just lazy in all honesty but I'm loving the Clarins Body Lotion at the minute. 

I always switch to a thicker eye cream in the winter to keep them nice and hydrated and less dry looking as my make up tends to go on cakey under my eyes and creases when they aren't well moisturised. Khiels Creamy Eye Treatment is my go to winter eye cream, I just love it. Highly recommend you go in and get a little sample to try before you buy :) 

Next up is my Emma Hardie Amazing Face Age Support Cream, now I know I'm not even in my 30s yet but prevention is everything so I use quite a few age defence products and this is one of them, I use this in place of a night cream as it's very moisturising and also gives my skin a really nice glow. 

Another reason I don't use a night cream is because I use face oils which are super hydrating and I just feel my skin doesn't need a heavy moisturiser along with the other products I use. Right now I am loving the AD Skin Synergy Oil which I got in a beauty subscription box, I've used this quite a lot now and it's one of these never ending products as you can see the bottle is still full. 

It's quite a simple night time skin care routine but I hope it was informative for you. Let me know in the comments below what your favourite skincare products are?
