Hey everyone,

It's that time of year again…not christmas but it's fast approaching. So today I just wanted to talk about beauty, specifically skin care. As it's starting to get colder outside, the drier our skin gets. And it's really important to make sure that you are drinking a lot of water and moisturizing you're skin daily to keep it hydrated and make sure that your face doesn't get flaky and tight.

For people with oily skin, I recommend something like Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel which doesn't dry out the skin.  When we use moisturizers that tend to dry out the skin, especially people who have oily skin, it causes the skin to produce more oil to counteract the oil that was lost. Thus, you want to make sure that the moisturizer used doesn't make your face greasy or too dry, there has to be a perfect balance.

The Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel  can be bought off of Sephora websites and in-store for ~$30-$35

For those with dry skin, something that keeps the skin hydrated and prevents it from getting flaky is best. But, you also want to make sure that the product does not feel greasy. Clean and Clear Dual Action Moisturizer is really good, it goes on very lightly and hydrates the skin very well.

This is a product that I have used in the past and it's really good. This product can be found in a drugstore or Walmart. They typically cost around ~$9 or $10 CAD depending on where you buy it.

For people with sensitive skin, try using something that doesn't have too many chemicals that can irritate the skin further and cause redness. Something like Avene moisturizer is really good for people with sensitive skin as it doesn't contain any preservatives and is all natural, but it can be used by all skin types.

Avene products can be found in most drugstores where they're about ~$26 USD or $24 CAD. Or you could also buy them off of amazon or Ebay where they're a little bit cheaper.

I hoped this was good advice for those of you who're hesitant or undecided about the types of products that you should use, let me know if you have any requests for my next upload.

Have a great day!
