Y'all know it. The groundhog saw his shadow and we got 6 more weeks of winter. Bleh. I've mentioned it a couple times, but the past couple winters have caused my eczema to really flare up, in addition to the normal winter skin woes of dry and dull skin. I went skiing for the first time almost a month ago, and really feel like I perfected my winter skincare routine since then. I don't think I've EVER done this many "things" to my face to get ready, but hey, you can teach an old dog new tricks!

I also linked everything below, explained what they do, and why I like them. Enjoy! P.S. From what I have researched, all of these products are cruelty-free and nontoxic!
Witch Hazel Toner. I'm going to do a wholeeee blog post on toner, but honestly it is super underrated. I really like this one and it doesn't have alcohol in it. You don't want things drying out your face (like alcohol) when the weather is already doing that. I use it to just clean my face really quickly and wipe away any eye makeup that is still remaining.
Ice Roller. This is something else I'm going to do a blog post on - still experimenting though. It helps me wake up and also shrinks pores and tightens my face.
Dr. Roebuck's Bondi Hydrating Mist. (c/o) I want to jumpstart my face's hydration, so I do a couple spritzes and am on my way! It also helps to brighten, as well as soothe. What more do you need?!
**I do these things before I head to the gym. If I don't workout that morning, I just start with the below.
Juice Beauty Cleansing Milk. I've been using this for over a year now. It is creamy and soothing and makes my face feel clean!
Witch Hazel Toner. I tone again-just a once over my face and eye area to get any remaining dirt.
Mad Hippie Vitamin C Serum. Vitamin C is so good for your skin! It can help prevent and even help reduce scarring and imperfections, in addition to collagen synthesis.
Telluride Glow. (c/o) I was introduce to this by an old co-worker and I wish she would have told me about it sooner! It's an alpine oil that is so multi-purpose it is insane! It's part aromatherapy and part skincare! It was created by Mary Alice Heape, as she couldn't find something that offered clarity, rejuvenation, and protection for her skin, while visiting and living in Telluride, CO. Before Telluride Glow, I thought face oils were only for nighttime, but I 100% recommend using this morning and/or night. It doesn't leave you looking greasy, but moisturized and supple. So far I've only used it to moisturize, but you can also use it as "shaving cream", cleanser, and makeup reviver! Oh and don't think you can only use it in winter...works great for the heated summer months, as well! Read more about it here. Wanna try it? Get 15% off w/code ELLESPANN - code expires 2/24/18.
Jade Roller. Again, still trying my rollers out, but right now this is my favorite. Besides feeling amazing, it helps my skin absorb the alpine oil better.
Osea Atmosphere Protection Cream. It's all in the name! This moisturizer is super light, while still remaining effective. In addition to protecting your skin from the elements, it can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
SuperGoop! Unseen Sunscreen. Throw away all of your current thoughts about face sunscreen, because this stuff doesn't smell weird or leave you looking oily. It's more matte and absorbs very well. Sunscreen is cool again. It serves as a great primer under your makeup, as well!
One Love Organics Vitamin B Enzyme Cleansing Oil. I began searching for an oil cleanser once I got rid of my eyelash extensions and wow baby this stuff is great. I use it as my first step of double cleansing, but you can just use it as a makeup remover as well! I use it as both. It smells like pineapples and it helps melt my makeup away!
Juice Beauty Cleansing Milk. Stuff so good, I use it twice! Same stuff I use in the morning.
Witch Hazel Toner. Yes. Here I am again, using the toner!
Telluride Glow. Andagain, with the alpine oil! Get 15% off w/code ELLESPANN.
Gua Sha Scraping Tool. This is under the same experiment as the ice roller and jade roller. I typically only use this at night, because it makes my face reddish. It is similar to the jade roller in the sense that it helps my skin absorb the oil better.
Juice Beauty Green Apple Age-Defy Moisturizer. This stuff is creamy and good! I love that it locks in moisturizer for me and my skin still feels soft when I wake up in the morning.
