My simple skincare during winter time



This winter hasn't been easy. Unless you're living in a cave, you probably heard about the crazy amount of snow Boston has been getting since end of January. And it's been cold, seriously cold. And with the cold, the skin suffers. I'm still trying to figure out how to take care of my super dry legs and arms, I've been trying a ton of lotions and moisturizers, and I'm yet to find "the one" [next in line to be tested is this lotion Chelsea is using and liking]. But, back in the beginning of winter, with the help of the ladies of Follain, who introduced me to Shamanuti products, I found the perfect combo for my face  and it's been working wonders! I have combination skin, but during the drier months, even the T-zone gets a little dry, under the oiliness (yuck). It turns out, I needed a toner and had no idea! I tried toners before and they were always very drying. But the Samanuti toner doesn't contain alcohol, which makes all the difference. So I've been wash my face at night with this face wash, then follow with the Shamanuti Seaweed Toner and the Shamanuti Face Oil. In the morning, I do just a splash of water and the toner. And that's it! Works like magic! How are you taking care of your skin this winter? Any amazing discoveries to share?

  3. This winter made me realize that I need more hydrating products than the all-year round cream I used in Greece! I always used a toner and thankfully I never used alcohol ones (I currently use The Body shop Aloe Vera Toner). I used Josie Maran's argan oil and layered First Aid Beauty cream on top! It helped!
