My Rock Solid Winter Skin Care Routine


Hi Everyone, 🙂
First of all wish you a verrryyy Happy New Year. May this year bring a lot of happiness and love in your lives. 🙂

As most of you would know that Sanjeev and I are in in Russia right now. And the temperature is here in negative. Right now it is -16 degrees as I write this post. I have really perfected my skincare during this extreme winters. So I thought I’d share it with you all.
I have normal to dry skin and it gets really dry in winters so I am always cribbing. But this time around *touchwood* my skin has been really good. So here it goes. Hope it helps some of you. 🙂 I would also love to know your winter skin care routine. 🙂

Cleansing :

  • Himalaya Baby Wipes : I love these. I find them gentle. They are great for travelling and they are great at removing the first layer of the makeup.
  • Garnier Face Wash : I don’t know. It is not even meant for my dry skin type but I love it and have been using it for a while.
  • Aesop Face Scrub : This is my holy grail face scrub. Keeps my skin clean and really extracts all the gunk out of the pores.
  • Bioderma H20 : I have put it in Gucci bottle because I love the bottle but Bioderma makeup remover never gets out of stock in my vanity.


Moisturising :

  • Kiehl’s Line Reducing Serum : It is probably one of the best serums I have EVER used!! No kidding! I love it. It feels light and it started working from day 1 itself in making my skin look better.
  • Kiehl’s Avocado Eye Cream : I forgot to pack my under eye cream so I bought it in Moscow. I find the texture to be a bit weird. It is thick and takes time to get absorbed. If your skin is wet, it kind of sits on your skin but I find it very moisturising. I like it. I’d have to use it more to really know what I think about it. But nothing negative so far except the way it gets absorbed.
  • Forest Essentials Eternal Youth Cream : I don’t even know how many times I have repurchased it. Love love love it!
  • Bioderma Sunscreen : Hands down one of the bestest sunscreen I have EVER used. Does not feels heavy, is lightweight and does not leave any film behind. Brilliantt!!!

Happy New Year to you Ms. Singh …..enjoy the extreme winters, after this, you would realize how pleasant the weather in Delhi is, hai na 😛 I would love to pick up Bioderma H2O and the garnier pure actives one – I have seen it so many times on the aisles, don’t know why I didn’t pick it up yet 🙂

    But I would really like to know the moisturiser you wear during the day. My skin type is same as yours and I am on the hunt for the right day cream/moisturizer. Please help!

  4. Happy New Year Rati..
    I always wait to see your skin care routine, though my skin type is totally different from you(Keeps changing.. but mostly Combination to Dry). I dream of perfecting my skin care routine one day 🙂
    Can you please tell me which website in India is better to buy Bioderma products?
