The Only Skincare Products You Need This Winter

My skin is generally normal to dry so during winter it gets super dry and I have to swap up the skincare products I use.  I also suffer with eczema on my face so have to use over the counter products as they're the only things that help.

I have a 6 step nightly routine so here is everything I use in the order I use them:

First Cleanse

I like to double skin, the first one is to remove my makeup.  For this I like the brightening hot cloth cleanser from Superdrug's Naturally Radiant range.  It's really soft, removes makeup and makes me skin smooth.

Second Cleanse

Then to really wash my face I use the cleanser called Purity by Philosophy.  This is one of my holy grail products and has been in my routine for over a year now.  You only need the tinest amount and it goes a long way.  It's super gentle on the eye area so can use it to remove mascara.


This is another holy grail product I've been using for a while and also quite a cult product I believe.  It's the Glow Tonic by Pixi.  I like it because unlike other toners it's not drying.  It gets rid of any last makeup or dirt on my face and gives a nice glow to the skin.

Hydrocortisone from Derma Care by Boots

This is the over the counter product I use on my eyelids and lips as I suffer with extreme dryness and flaky skin.  A little goes a long way and it's the only thing that gets rid of my eczema.


Then I use the Dragon's blood serum by Nip & Fab.  This is really hydrating and I like to put it on after the toner everywhere except my eyes as I like to use the eye cream there.

Facial Oil

Lastly I use a facial oil.  I've been a fan of these for a long time now as they're so good for dry skin.  This one is the Vitamin E one by Superdrug and again a little goes a long way.  I use it everywere and even rub over my hands after.

What do you use on your skin to get it through the cold winter months?
