Transitioning Your Skincare for Winter

Transitioning Your Skincare for Winter

A while back, I wrote a post about switching up your skincare routine for summer. It can be so very frustrating to think you've gotten your skin figured out only for the season to change and it's almost like you're starting over at ground zero. The truth is that our skin can actually be very different depending on the season. My skin is oilier in the summer and super dry in the winter, but I've figured out ways to take care of it differently that work well for me. So, if you are using the Some Call Me Crunchy Facial Care Products, here are my winter suggestions: 

1.Switch up your cleansing oil: During the warmer months, I use the normal/combo version of the Some Call Me Crunchy Cleansing Oil. When it starts to get cold again (usually around the time we have to turn on the heat), I switch to the dry/mature version. If you've been using the oily/acne prone version and you've realized that your skin is drier, switch up to the normal/combo.

2. Use Your Serum Twice a Day: In the winter, I apply our oil based serum after cleansing morning and night. In the spring/summer, I only apply it after cleansing at night. Also, be sure that you are using some sort of moisturizer with your serum. At night I use our body butter as an overnight moisturizer and in the morning I use this one by Beautycounter*. 

3. Toner, toner, toner: Make sure you are using a toner. Some Call Me Crunchy Complexion Mists (we now have two scents: lavender + rose and calendula + frankincense) are the perfect way to tone your skin year round. They help balance out oil production and hydrate the skin which is what you need to prevent acne and wrinkles.

A couple weeks ago I wrote a blog post about my personal facial care routine and I promised a follow up makeup routine post! As most of you know, I'm super picky about the products I use and try to stick to products that are clean (meaning they don't contain a bunch of harmful chemicals). My Some Call Me Crunchy line of products are made with all natural ingredients and don't include any harsh chemicals (I include how I use those in the facial care routine post). While I do use makeup products from a few different companies, most everything comes from Beautycounter. I've been using their makeup for years and can't say enough good things about them...

Yesterday, I caught my five year old daughter washing her face while I was making dinner. I asked her if it was dirty and she said something along the lines of, "No, Mom, I'm washing my face because I'm pretending to be a grown up and that's what grown ups do." I found it quite funny and cool that she's picked up on the fact that I have a facial-care routine. It's one of the ways that I practice self-care on a daily basis and I love that she's noticing...
