The Sensitive Skin Skincare Edit

I have crazy sensitive skin to the extent where even brands like Simple break me out. It's a conundrum and every time the weather changes (hello Autumn), I'm faced with the prospect of having to adapt to my skin again but also faced with potential breakouts if my skin reacts.

But I've sussed out a new routine which has my skin sorted for the colder months and is packed with moisture to prevent that oh so gross skin flakey winter look.

Because I wash my face in the morning and evening, I like having two cleansers on the go and have been loving both the Soap&Glory Peaches and Clean and the Antipodes Aura Cream Cleanser. The Soap&Glory cleanser is a much light consistency so is better for the morning as it's quite light and refreshing and really isn't the best for removing makeup whereas the Antipodes cleanser is my go to in the evening as it's so moisturising and the texture feels somewhat spa like which is exactly the type of feeling you want at the end of the day. 

And then for a night moisturiser, I'm a big advocate for simply using an overnight mask which is where the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask steps in. This is my go to for pretty much everything. It seems to solve every skin issue overnight and by morning, my skin is soft glowy and pretty much redness free.

And for the moments when your skin needs a bit more TLC, I've realised that I tend to err away from clay masks in winter as they dry out my skin far more than necessary. So the Antipodes Manuka Honey Mask was a welcome addition. The Manuka honey is ideal for any spots as it's a natural antiseptic and soothing. I'm a firm believer that spots disappear much faster if they're moisturised so a moisturising mask like this really kicks any redness to the curb. 

What are you skin go to's for the cooler months?
