The cold and wet winter air can be a brutal attack on your skin. It makes it dry, itchy and thirsty. I drive to work on my scooter everyday, through rain, wind, melting snow, etc. And now with temperatures (finally) dropping, it's very necessary to pamper my facial skin as much as I can.
I always use Dr Hauschka's Rose cream light during the cold winter months. It's a fantastic barrier against the chills and it's a good base for a light foundation as well.
I apply the cream and then let it sink it, so to speak. Before I apply my usual (light) foundation, I first dab the excess with a paper tissue.
