Rachel's Winter Skincare Picks {FACE}

Holiday parties, family gatherings, dinners... so many festive activities upon us during this cheerful season.  Of course with so much "getting together" we'd love to be sure we look our best, but oftentimes the colder weather takes a toll on our skin.  If you're like me, you definitely don't want to lose a bit of summer's glow - especially now during this busy time.  Today I'd like to share with you a few tips and some amazing skincare products that I'm absolutely obsessed with...

1. Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System - This little device is a lifesaver.  I use it 1-2 times per day for a deeper cleansing of my face.  You won't believe the dirt residue on your brush after the first time you use it!  It provides a deeper clean, and since I travel quite often I love how portable it is.

2. Adovia Natural Dead Sea Mud Soap - I just recently started using my clarisonic with this mud soap as a cleanser and I'm amazed!  I actually could see an improvement on blemishes and minor acne spots. Also, it left me skin feeling so soft that I also began using it on my body as well.

3. Olay Regenerist Microdermabrasion & Peel System - I use this as an exfoliator once a day.  It's an absolutely amazing way to scrub away that old dead & dry winter skin and reveal a super soft and refreshed face underneath!

4. Adovia Purifying Mud Mask - I use this mud mask once a week for extra purification and I love it.  With nourishing and demineralizing dead sea water & mud, this miraculous formula leaves skin healthy and glowing.  Plus I love that it only contains natural ingredients... from a pretty awesome source too!

5. Josie Maran Argan Oil - I will never go back to a regular moisturizer again... if you've tried this, most likely you agree with me.  I lather this on my face after cleansing and exfoliating twice a day, morning and night.  I noticed a major improvement in my oily skin, but what's great about this oil?  It's perfect for all skin types.  It may seem pricey but it lasts forever -- a tiny drop of the solution goes a long way!  Honestly I'd love to bathe and swim in this stuff every day. ;)

Well, there you have it.  Hopefully some of my recommendations will help your skin dazzle this holiday season!
