My Winter Skin Saviors

my-winter-skin-care-saviors

Hi beauties,
Because it' has been soooo cold outside I was thinking about sharing my winter skins saviors with you...hope this helps if your skin is dry and you don't know what skin care products to use.
Our skin needs a little help in winter because of the harsh cold and dehydrating central heating, our regular product might not work any more, they might not be hydrating or nourishing enough.

These are the products I've been using lately. They are not cheap, but they are extremely good, being dermatocosmetics. So, if you find your regular skin products are not efficient, I highly recommend these:

Hi beauties,
Pentru ca a fost asa frig afara, m-am gandit sa va povestesc putin despre produsele de ingrijire a pielii pe care eu personal le consider salvatoare atunci cand pielea imi devine prea uscata/deshidratata pe timpul iernii.  Pielea are nevoie de ceva mai mult ajutor pe perioada iernii din cauza efectelor nedorite ale frigului si ale aerului uscat din casa, produsele pe care le folosim de obicei nemaifiind la fel de eficiente, ci este nevoie de produse de ingrijire mai hidratante, mai hranitoare. 

In ultimul timp am apelat cam la aceleasi produse zi de zi pentru ca mi s-au parut cele mai bune, fiind dermatocosmetice. Din pacate, nu sunt foarte ieftine. Asadar, daca observati ca produsele pe care le folositi nu isi fac efectul asa cum ar trebui, acestea sunt produsele pe care eu le recomand cu incredere:


La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Legere / Uriage Bariederm Onguent /Vichy Soothing & Repairing Balm

La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Legere
For the face I prefer La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Legere (review HERE) because it offers a high-performance rehydration with long efficiency. I find it really moisturizing for my combination skin (normal skin with oily T-zone). Sometimes I have dry patches and this moisturizer is a real skin savior.
It absorbs well without feeling greasy afterwards (maybe just a little bit on the T-zone cause it's not a mattifying cream, but not too much). It has a light consistency and the smell is really nice, so refreshing. It comes in a blue tube with an easy-to-use anti-contamination dispenser which I like. Great for sensitive skin as it is infused with thermal water. Paraben-free, non-comedogenic.

Pentru fata prefer La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Legere (review AICI) pentru ca ofera o hidratare de durata. Este o crema potrivita pentru tenul meu mixt (piele normala cu zona T grasa). Cateodata am zone de piele uscata si crema asta este foarte eficienta in acest sens. 
Intra usor in piele, fara a o lasa grasa (poate putin zona T se observa mai lucioasa fiindca nu este o crema matifianta, dar nu foarte mult). Are o consitenta light, iar mirosul este foarte placut, proaspat. Este ambalata intr-un tub albastru, transparent ce are o pompita anti-contaminare, lucru care imi place. Poate fi folosita si pentru pielea sensibila, fiind infuzata cu apa termala. Fara parabeni, non-comedogenica.

Uriage Bariederm Ointment Cracks/Fissures
This is an amazing cream for my hands/feet/elbows cracked skin! It works so quickly!  Uriage Bariederm Ointment Cracks/Fissures repairs, softens and protects the skin of my body, being highly softening and hydrating, although it has a really thick formula. I was amazed how quickly it repaired the bleeding cracks on my hands!  I can feel it like a shield to my skin, but not greasy.
It has a spatula for a hygienic use and it is fragrance-free, preservative-free, having a hypoallergenic formula. Highly recommended although it's a bit pricey! I will buy it every time I have severe skin issues.

Ingredients:  octyldodecanol, polyethylene, butylene glycol cocoate, cera alba (beeswax), persea gratissima (avocado) oil, bis-diglyceryl polyacryladipate-2-pentaeryl tetrabehenate, butyrospermum parki (shea butter), hydrogenated avocado oil, panthenyl ethyl ether, synthetic wax, brassica campestris (rapeseed) sterols, squalane, tocopheryl acetate, polyquaternium-61- tocopherol, citric acid.

Uriage Bariederm Ointment Cracks/Fissures  m-a uimit cat este de eficienta pentru pielea crapata a mainilor/picioarelor/coatelor! Isi face efectul foarte repede! Repara, hraneste si protejeaza pielea corpului, ea devenind moale si hidratata, chiar daca consistenta ei este foarte groasa. Am fost uimita sa vad cat de repede mi-a "reparat" ranile sangerande de pe maini, datorate frigului si frecarii de fermoarul buzunarelor. O simt pe maini, dar nu ca fiind grasa.
Se vinde impreuna cu o spatula, din motive igienice. Are o formula ce nu contine parfum, conservanti, fiind totodata hipoalergena. O recomand datorita calitatilor sale, desi este cam scumpa. Eu o voi cumpara ori de cate ori voi nevoie.

Ingrediente: 
octyldodecanol, polyethylene, butylene glycol cocoate, cera alba (beeswax), persea gratissima (avocado) oil, bis-diglyceryl polyacryladipate-2-pentaeryl tetrabehenate, butyrospermum parki (shea butter), hydrogenated avocado oil, panthenyl ethyl ether, synthetic wax, brassica campestris (rapeseed) sterols, squalane, tocopheryl acetate, polyquaternium-61- tocopherol, citric acid.


Vichy Aqualia Thermal Soothing and Repairing Balm
My favorite lip balm is from Vichy, it is creamy, infused with Vichy thermal water and it moisturizes and repairs my lips during winter really well, keeping them soft throughout the day. Vichy Aqualia Thermal Soothing & Repairing Balm also shields lips from external aggressions.  
I like to apply it under my lipstick when I have chapped lips and go outside. I also use it at home day and night. It has 4 active ingredients: Glycerine, Shea butter, Asiatic acid and Vitamin E. It is hypoallergenic and paraben-free.

Balsamul meu favorit pentru buze este Vichy Aqualia Thermal Soothing & Repairing Balm, este cremos, infuzat cu apa termala Vichy, aceste proprietati facandu-l hidratant, emolient, lucru care ajuta foarte mult la refacerea buzelor pe timp de iarna, facandu-le soft. De asemenea, protejeaza buzele de factorii nocivi externi. 
Obisnuiesc sa-l aplic inaintea rujului atunci cand am buzele mai uscate. De asemenea, il folosesc si cand stau acasa, zi si noapte. Are 4 ingrediente active: glicerina, unt de shea, acid asiatic (???...daca asta o fi traducerea corecta) si vitamina E. Este hipoalergenic si nu contine parabeni.
 

These are my three skin saviors and I can always rely on them when I have dry, dehydrated skin.
Acestea sunt cele 3 produse care ma scot mereu din incurcatura cand am pielea foarte uscata.

What are your favorite products for this time of year? I would really like to know!

xoxo,

    1. Buna si merci de comentariu. Sa stii ca eu nu prea am probleme cu tenul, am nevoie doar de hidratare, asa ca nu ma intereseaza prea mult daca contine alcool sau parfum. Totusi, pielea mea a fost sensibila in ultimul timp, dar de la crema asta nu am avut usturimi cum s-a intamplat cu alta testata anterior. Mie mi-a fost recomandata de medicul dermatolog, plus de o cunostinta tot medic dermatolog, asa ca o folosesc cu incredere...si, cel mai important, cu rezultate foarte bune:). Si in plus, nu-mi plac cremele care nu miros putin. Pupici!

  8. Hi, hi,hi! O postare asemanatoare ca asta am si eu in drafts si o s-o public in cateva zile.
    Chiar vroiam s-o public ieri, dar a publicat Cristina favoritele lunii :P
    Produsele nu coincid, eu am tenul uscat si am nevoie de multa, multa hidratare in aceasta perioada.
    Ma tenteaza produsele Uriage, am auzit multe lucruri bune despre ele si as vrea sa le incerc.

    1. Sunt curioasa ce produse ai tu pe lista! Eu crema La Roche-Posay am terminat-o, acum folosesc ceva luat din supermarket si nu face fata. Am testat azi noul fond de ten Vichy Idealia Teint si se vad portiuni uscate pe nas si frunte, mai mult ca sigur e din cauza cremei de fata. L-am testat acum cateva zile cu La Roche-Posay si nu am observat astfel de inconveniente (bine, a fost diferita aplicarea fondului de ten: atunci am folosit pensula RT, acum am folosit degetele, dar sunt convinsa ca imi trebuie o crema de fata foarte hidratanta, vreau ceva mai ieftin de data asta). Thanks for leaving a comment:)

  10. I have been relying on Dr. Lipp, only one ingredient and it works a dream on rough, dry, chapped lips. I also love Philosophy 'When Hope Is Not Enough' facial serum, I've not seen one dry flake on my skin this winter, it's now become a firm must have for me. Weleda Skin Food is brilliant on dry, rough hands as well as The Body Shops, hemp hand lotion. Thanks for the suggestions I will look into the La Roche - Posay, it looks like it may be worth a try. Thanks.

  11. I have been avoiding Vichy's (and L'Oreal's brands in general) for a long time now because somehow I found out they do animal testing. However, i should dug into it and see if they have changed that policy because I'd love to try some of their products.

  17. Interesanta crema de la La Roche-Posay, nu o cunosc, insa m-ar tenta...si eu am tenul mixt si de multe ori fruntea arata oribil, chiar cu produse specifice...cred ca mi s-ar potrivi in anotimpul cald fiindca pare super light; acum am nevoie de hidratare si aplic ceva consistent. De la acest brand foloseam intr-o perioada un ulei de dus excellent pentru iarna, dar pe care nu-l vad pe site-ul klorane.ro, poate ca exista totusi in magazine: http://www.fr.laroche-posay.be/produits-soins/Lipikar/Lipikar-Huile-p1036.aspx...daca esti amatoare de produse La Roche-Posay, poate ca iti va placea! Te pup....foarte faine pozele

    1. Am folosit Lipikar Syndet, dar nu era ulei, era gel. Si Lipikar Baume mi s-a parut foarte buna pentru pielea uscata de pe maini si calcaie. Le-am cumparat pentru fiu-miu cand era bebe, la recomandarea dermatologului (avea dermatita atopica). Multumesc pentru aprecieri, ma straduiesc sa fac poze cat mai calitative, dar mai am de invatat:). Te pup
