Okay, so this might sound a bit crazy, but I recently stopped washing my face and noticed the biggest difference. As soon as the temperatures start to drop I try to prep my dry skin for what's to come, and this year, inspired by this story, I decided to stop washing my face altogether. I didn't think this would have such a big impact, but man, was I wrong! It's kind of common knowledge that cleansers tend to dry out your skin, mess with your natural pH balance, and can cause redness or itchy spots, but I was so used to washing my face that at first it felt weird to stop doing it. After only a little while, though, my skin started to feel bouncier and hydrated, and looked generally ... glowy.
Needless to say I've adopted a whole new routine, that's as easy as it comes: first I take off my make-up with my beloved Bioderma Sensibio H2O (aka the holy grail of make-up removers), using unbleached cotton pads, until my skin is completely clean. Then I apply a good moisturizer (I still love my La Mer day cream, but La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra soothing care is a great budget friendly alternative). About once a week I give my skin a little extra love (and cleansing!) with the Aveda Tourmaline Radiance face mask, which is really awesome for instant glow. And that's it!
Which little beauty tips & tricks do you have that make a big difference? I'm super curious! :)
