The RVAfashionista Winter Skin Survival Guide

The dry winter air and frigid temperatures always ends up wreaking havoc on my somewhat sensitive skin that's already prone to hormonal and stress related breakouts. To combat  the dryness of the acne medication I've been using to clear up the breakouts, these products have been my lifesavers for getting my skin back on track.

Walgreens Daily Regenerating Cleanser - I use this two to three times a week as a face scrub. I'm currently using The Parsonage Oatmeal, Milk & Honey Soap as my everyday facial cleanser. I am also a fan of the Lavender Fields Farm Oatmeal, Milk, & Honey Soap.

Bio-Oil - I use this as a serum and around my eyes because my skin is especially dry in the eye area. The Bio-Oil has helped with some of the discoloration around my eyes and from leftover acne scars and marks. This is surprisingly non-greasy and helps add that extra moisture my skin craves in the dry weather.

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream - This stuff doesn't break me out, keeps my skin super hydrated, and is gentle enough to use around the eye area as well.  Dermatologists swear by the Cetaphil brand and I do too!

Carmex Strawberry Moisturizing Lipbalm - Don't forget your lips when keeping the rest of your face moisturized! I even wear this under lipsticks and lip glosses because sometimes the moisture from the gloss isn't enough to keep my lips hydrated.

Clinique City Block SPF25 - I wear sunscreen religiously and this is my go-to product. I have been wearing City Block for years and there is nothing quite like it in my opinion. It doesn't sting or run into your eyes if you get sweaty and leaves a nice natural finish.
