How to winterize your skin

Hi there!

    Hmm, would you take a bit more of time to explain to me how to use cleansing oil?
    I’ve bought one from the face shop. I’ve only used it once or twice. I don’t get it. I mean how do you even use it correctly?

    When i apply on my face, it’s all oil! LOL (if you see what i mean), and then oily. And you rinse it off, I’m not even sure if it’s rinsed properly?? Care to enlighten me a little? ;D

      The way you use cleansing oil is very similar to how you use oil-based makeup remover.

      You apply the oil to your dry face, and then massage for about 30-60 seconds. Then you wet your hands, and massage your face again, turning the oil into a milky consistency. The second time around you only want to massage for about 10-15 seconds though, just enough for the consistency to change. Then you can rinse as usual.

      At first you definitely get the oily consistency, which can feel a bit uncomfortable, but once you rinse it off your skin shouldn’t feel oily at all. Hope this helps!

    Nice tips! My skin definitely gets really dry during the winter. My hands are already starting to crack a bit, so I’ve been using lotion even more. I’m guilty of scorching myself with hot water during a shower, haha. That’s a good idea to have a small heater in your bathroom!

      Glad you found them helpful :) Hot showers are tempting on cold day, occasionally I still take one just because it feels so nice, haha

    I struggle with using oily products on my skin, so I’m a little hesitant to use a cleansing oil – but the body shop honey scrub looks amazing! I love face masks, and I love using honey to cleanse, it smells so amazing! I think that product will be getting added to my stock!

      I highly recommend the honey scrub – it smells like oatmeal + honey and makes your skin really soft after use :)
