Can we all agree that winter can end now?? Hai it’s too cold! Lol.
As mentioned before in one my previous posts I’m not really a huge fan of winter. Not only is it just annoyingly cold for me but my face (and my entire body) gets really, really dry! 🙁 So I need every little bit of moisture that I can get. This is the time when I need to up my water intake and also use face products that are really moisturising to help my skin.
So this winter I have been loving these two products:
1. Sorbet Hydrating Face Mask
This mask was actually recommended by a beauty therapist at Sorbet some few months back when I went for a facial (my fave pamper treatment). She said my face was very dry and recommended I try use hydrating masks to give my skin that extra boost. So I’ve been using this mask since then. I use it probably twice a month and I can really feel the difference.
My face just sucks up all that moisture and it feels so soft and plump afterwards! The mask itself is watery, it feels cool on the skin and it’s quite hydrating. You leave the mask on for about 15 to 20min and you don’t rinse it off. You can rub any excess oil down your neck or on your hands. I love treating myself to this and it feels like I’m having a spa facial.
I bought my mask from Clicks but you can also find it at Sorbet beauty salons.
2. Nativechild Avocado oil
Yes you read right, I use oil to moisturise my face…and it really works! A month ago I wouldn’t have thought of putting oil on my face! However about two months back when I bought The Body Shop Vitamin E day cream and night cream to combat my dry skin a fellow blogger, Nandi of Hair of Heritage, mentioned that 100% Avocado oil works just as well since it has Vitamin E in it. I must say The Body Shop products were good but they are also qute pricey…so I decided to given the avocado oil from Nativechild a go once my day cream ran out…And so far, so good 🙂
I still have my Body Shop night cream (which I use only at night) so I only apply two drops of Nativechild Avocado oil to the palm of my hands and massage it all over my face every morning.
Obviously different products work differently for different people but this is what works for me to keep my face soft and moisturised. I also like the fact that the avocado oil 100% natural.
Another bonus is that it also doubles up as a hair oil for my scalp and locs – woop!
What are you using to keep you face soft and moisturised?
