Hey Beauty Birds! It’s your girl pal and blog writer Grayson here and for the first time in what feels like a while, I’m sharing my own skincare regimen. This post is going to be all about how I’m using my favorite SkinOwl products this winter.
Let’s start first with the fact that I live in Atlanta, Georgia (quick shoutout to the rest of our amazing remote members of Team SkinOwl). My location is important because the climate you live in can strongly impact your skin. For example, I traded dry, sunny LA for 4 seasons of humidity in the southeast and this difference in climate has definitely shifted my skincare routine. Plus, I live in a big city, so I also have to take into consideration how pollution is impacting the condition of my skin. I always recommend doing a little environmental audit as you start to nail down your skincare regimen to make sure your skin is getting all the benefits it needs to be looking its best wherever you are.
Okay, now let’s get to the good stuff.
My Winter Skin Regimen
First things first, I always cleanse my skin in both the morning and at night. This gives my naturally oily complexion a fresh slate to work with. If you’re looking for a mini detox session, our Charcoal Bar is life! It helps remove impurities from deep within the skin making it perfect for battling congestion or removing icky things like pollution from your pores.
Next, I spritz (more like bathe in) Lemongrass Beauty Mist all over to tone, calm and hydrate. The cucumber seriously banishes redness from my complexion. Even when I’ve been really bad and picked at a blemish, this mist comes in and saves the day every time.
Eye+ is my next move in my winter regimen. This depuffing and dark circle brightening gel is my favorite step. Plus, it’s an amazing wake me up in the morning after I pull it out of the fridge. *Quick pro tip: use your Eye+ to help reduce inflammation and redness in a blemish. It seriously works wonders!
While my skin is still wet, I like to grab my Neck+ concentrate and smooth this congestion fighting and skin tightening serum all over my face, neck, and chest. This all-in-one treatment helps me feel confident that I’m properly taking care of all the other important skin regions in addition to my face. Plus, witch hazel and willow bark extracts are some of my favorite ingredients for treating acne prone skin like mine.
Next up are my Geranium Beauty Drops! Every morning and night, I massage 1/2 a pipette of this facial oil into my skin. This serum gives my skin the hydration boost it needs while helping to treat my hormonal acne prone skin.
Lastly, I’ll finish off my winter regimen with a pump of my Beauty Whip. In the evening, this overnight mask helps seal in moisture and fight damage and the effects of pollution on my skin thanks to the powerful antioxidants in the maqui berry. In the morning, this moisturizing mask perfectly primes my skin for makeup and keeps my complexion looking glowy all day long.
