Winter Skin Care Confession of a Lazy Bum

I Love winters in Karachi, I really do. I love the clean, dry atmosphere, The layering of clothes, hot coffee mug in bare hands, mittens and boots, everything...almost. I can't stand cold water or getting wet in anyway in winters, brrrr. This unfortunately makes me a bit of a skin care bum. SIGH :(

In non-wintery circumstances I wash my face at least thrice a day. Morning, after I come back from work and then before going to bed at night. I use a Lighter face wash for night as I had already washed my properly after I get home from work. On a day off I wash my face twice, day and night.

During winters I try my best to wash it thoroughly once and the rest of the time its more of a splash and dash! I was not too proud of myself until I figured out a better Winter Care Regime :)

I decided to THOROUGHLY wash my face, scrub a dub, after I came home from work because that is when my face has been exposed the most to dirt, pollution and what not. The morning and night is a splash my face and dash BUT I also used Wet wipes to get rid of extra dirt, germs and leftover makeup, if any.

The three saviors of my Winter skin care regime have been the following:

  3. It may be strange, but i read it somewhere that one should not apply anyhting on face at night. At least, let it breath at night since then i do not use anything on my skin before bed. I used BB once it didnt suit me. So, only thing that left is cleansing wipes and i love these :) :)

  14. I rarely buy any product specifically for winters as they don't last much here in karachi and I end up having the same bottles for years.

    I too have combo/oily skin, started using olay beauty fluid as a night time cream and quite happy with it. Do suggest any good face wash, toner, scrub and mask for our skin tone in summers. I have been using body shop's Seaweed facewash and toner but not really happy. Tried the mask from the latest origlow trend here but was quite a let down. Also used body shop's vitamin c exfoliator; found it okayish. May be it's just my skin not responding to anything :/
    Looking forward to your suggestions. ☺

  15. Hi, thanks for such an interesting post :-) I have to admit that I am not very fond of winters, mainly because they seem kind of endless in Germany! I do love summers, though. It's not very humid as the temperature rarely goes above 28 degrees Celsius and the only negative is that the season doesn't last long! Anyway, I will definitely check out the night cream you reviewed as I am always on the lookout for products that satisfy the requirements that you mentioned :-) Thanks again, for sharing about it!
