Cold Weather Skin Cures

With power outages in New York (still) and temperatures continuing to drop, my winter skin staples have made an appearance sooner than expected. Switching from the cold to hover over space heaters and fireplaces can wreck your skin. Here are some of my all-time favorite products, along with some new ones that I use to cure that noticeable, uncomfortable, tight-feeling skin.

RMS Coconut Oil – This is a newer item that I am currently loving. Coconut oil is incredible at removing makeup while not depleting your skin of its natural oils. It moisturizes as it melts away even the toughest of makeup. I leave this on for the duration of the shower then lightly wipe away remaining makeup using a muslin cloth. I do a second cleanse with my Clarisonic and a non-foaming cleanser free of any harsh sulfates.

Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Mask – I have mentioned this mask before (here). I use this product year-round for various skin concerns. While it doesn’t smell the greatest it is wonderful at replenishing dehydrated skin. I apply this mask and then tissue off any excess and wear it to bed. It’s instantly soothes and hydrates dry, itchy skin. It’s also great for those with red, reactive skin types.
Weleda Skin Food – This natural skin moisturizer is the ultimate. Skin Food is a long-time skin care favorite and I have yet to meet a person that hasn’t raved about its benefits. It’s chock-full of healthy and natural ingredients including Calendula, pansy extract, and chamomile. The cream is an incredible salve consistency that smells a bit like diaper-rash cream in the best possible way. You can apply it to hands and cover with cotton gloves overnight for a treatment. This one is addicting.
RMS Lip and Skin Balm – Also new to me and quick to become a favorite is this Multi-purpose balm from RMS. This vanilla-scented balm has not left my sight since I first got it. I use it on my lips, cuticles, and anywhere else that needs some extra moisture. I have even found myself applying it to cheekbones to provide a healthy glow. I love it for its natural ingredients and for its long-lasting benefits.

 What are some of your Winter Skin Favorite’s?

  1. Love this post! I’m very bad with taking care of my skin…I’m lazy to moisturise and also wash my face :/ I really gotta get into it though. How do you find the…I guess motivation to take care of your skin and use masks? I actually need to find a mask also that will suit my oily and a bit dry skin. I hope you are well and hope everything will get back to normal

    1. Hi Elizabeth! I love your question. Skin care has always been a passion of mine, I think I just find it of interest and I never needed to motivate myself. I love the science of it, and I am eager to maintain my youth 🙂 Just always make sure your skin is moisturized and you don’t dry it out with too much products to eliminate your oil. Xo

      1. Thank you! 😀 I actually purchased a Korres pomegranate moisturiser probably 3 days ago and also got a minimising pore masque…I tried them out and unfortunately I am allergic to the Korres moisturiser 😦 I’m thinking of not trying anymore things and just stick to what my skin is happy with because I’ve been having very bad allergic reactions this past year. Kinda tired of waking up with my face all itchy, red and swollen haha 🙂 I will do as you advise and just moisturise and not keep trying out new things 🙂 Thank you xx ❤

    1. Hi! I suffer from occasional breakouts and large pored on my t-zone. I use this whether or not I have breakouts. In my experience I think it would be fine. It is all natural and there are no pore-clogging ingredients.

  2. Hi!

    I am a fan of RMS beauty! It has been my beauty staple for a couple of years…the whole line is soo good!

    I have recently bought Skin Food by Weleda, which I love (also reviewed on my blog)

    1. Hi Clara! I adore RMS. I have the un-coverup on the way to me, I cannot wait. I saw you have also reviewed the lip2cheek in promise. I ordered samples of two and am so impressed. I wish I ordered Promise as well. 🙂

      1. Thanks for checking out my review!

        Yes, lip2cheek in Promise is a great and versatile product !

        Let us know your thought on the un cover up!

  3. Great post! I’m working on one myself about useful products for central heating confused skin! My face doesn’t know what to do with itself at the moment! The weleda Skin food is on my hit list next, also do you find the clarisonic is worth the price? I have looked into in and am not sure whether to part with my hard earned cash as it is quite pricey! Thanks! xxxx

    1. Thank you! I feel the same way about my confused skin! I look forward to seeing what has made it to your hit list. As for the Clarisonic.. I feel that a face cleansing machine can do absolute wonders for your skin. Previously I used the Olay Pro X and had incredible results. I upgraded to the Clarisonic because I am certain it will last me a very long time, it is rechargeable, and I feel it is more gentle. I highly recommend the Olay for a budget buy. hope that helped 🙂

      1. Thanks for your reply! I’m going to take your advice and have a look at the Olay and the Clarisonic, the fact that the Clarisonic is rechargeable though really appeals, sounds like a great investment skin care wise xxx

  4. Really nice post!! I think i need to try that Weleda Skin Food to see how good it really is. I heard a thing or two about this product before. Do you think it would suit my sensitive skin??

  5. Very interesting. I just wondered what is your skin type on your face? As I have oily skin…. ( I get my shine on all over after about 2 hours, GROSS) but my skin is also dehydrated ( Stupid skin, too much oil not enough water…..make your mind up). Any way so I am really interested in the mega mushroom mask……… Any thoughts on whether this might be suitable.

    1. Hi! I have dry to combination skin, and occasional breakouts. I think this mask would be fine for you. I think it is a great option for confused skin. Oily skin will keep you young 🙂 have you ever tried a mattifying primer under your makeup? Just a suggestion. 🙂

      1. Thank you so much. I did used to use an estee lauder primer that helped alot but it’s expensive to keep buying, but your right I should get some again it did make a big difference. For sure I might get brake outs but hopefully when I’m 50 I will look 40!!

  6. I love that coconut cream and lip&skin balm they are so amazing and so travel-friendly! Although I wish the coconut cream packaging was spill-proof. 😦

    Big fan of RMS, have you tried the colours? They’re great. I always end up having such a lengthy post about it haha.
