Oh Father Winter, You Again! Weapons of Mass Hydration

Winter hit us hard finally this week and as usual we're all acting like we've never seen snow before. Come on people this is Canada don't pretend like you don't know what to do when it snows, it happens every year! This year it came pretty late. Everybody's acting like it's never been so cold before in their entire lives when really this is what February is supposed to be like. After living here my entire life, I have adapted pretty well to the four seasons. This in turn shows in my skincare routine. Fall and Winter routine is different than my Spring and Summer routine for obvious reasons. When it's cold outside our skin needs more hydration. From the frigid winter airs to the arid indoor heating systems, our skin is taking a beating.
Here are a few beauty must haves for the winter months:
Biotherm Aquasource Nuit $48

Biotherm Aquasource Nuit $48

  • P. Antarctica - it's superpower ability to retain water in order to survive super cold Antarctica. 
  •  unlike traditional night creams, this is not heavy or rich
  • gel texture = non-oily, non-sticky and fast absorbing
  • Major Hydration for those who don't need anti-aging richness
  • Good for all skin types
  • Chocked full of relaxing fragrances
Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX

Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX $30 (prices vary)

  • Chestnut Extract - removes dead cells to maximize massive water supply, hence, smoother hydrated skin
  • light gel texture feels comfortable on skin so when you wake up your skin feels refreshed
  • Wake up looking well rested and energized
It is not necessary to use both products at the same time. Using one or the other is fine. But both products offer similar benefits and results: hydration and lots of it. Extra hydration for the skin is essential during the cold winter months.
Hope you enjoyed my post today!
