I find it more challenging than summer. That said, all seasons have their setbacks, challenges, and even advantages, so that’s why I like consistency. I’ve been loving Delight Beauty skincare which is uncomplicated and gorgeous. Each one of these products is thoughtfully developed with its own special twist, whether it be an innovative applicator, a unique texture, an inviting scent, or a subtle sparkle that enhances both your experience and your results. And you can’t beat their soothing formulas, luxurious textures, and nourishing botanicals and minerals.
In the above picture, I’m wearing zero makeup. Although I also like makeup! Now I’m confident about who I am as a mom, and as a woman. And the truth is – I like the natural look and I like the dressed up look and either way – I need to take good care of my skin in those places in between. I’m a busy mama. I remember life being simpler – sleeping in, actually taking weekends off, reading whole books, binge watching TV shows, and now that’s just not the case. It’s fighting off monsters under the bed, working 2-3 jobs at any given time, and having late nights, date nights, and girls’ nights. So I need a winter beauty routine that answers to all of the many calls I’m sending out. And also, to have more time to find delights in the everyday.
These next few months, though. Whoa. I’m all about little delights. Eating an expensive chocolate I saved up, going for a walk with one of my dogs, listening to a playlist of a favorite artist (on random), calling a friend or writing a letter/email, and the list goes on. Skincare? It’s essential, but it’s also truly enjoyable. I make special time for my winter beauty routine and I’m going to tell you exactly how I do it, and why! These products have unique uses and unique product applicators, and I’m quite the fan. So here’s my product lineup, and the simple delights:
My Winter Beauty Routine with Delight Beauty:
Roll With It – Gel Detox Mask:
This is a velvety gel mask that glides on effortlessly with an innovative rolling applicator that cools and stimulates. It’s made with refreshing grapefruit, mango, and pomegranate enzymes that dissolve excess oil and grime, while glycolic acid gently exfoliates. It also contains powerful hyaluronic acid to help hold in moisture, and leave skin fresh, soft, and revitalized. It’s made for all skin types, is dermatologist-tested, and is clinically proven to be non-irritating. This cruelty-free, vegan formula is a must for your Delight Beauty skincare lineup. How do I use it?
Before my shower, 2-3 times a week, I twist to open, gently squeeze the gel onto the applicator, and then roll in small circles all over my face. Then I leave it on for 5-10 minutes and rinse.
Fresh Sweep – Calming Gel Toner:
This is a silky gel toner that comforts just-washed skin! So this one is right after my shower. It has a feathery-soft brush that is infused with anti-bacterial charcoal, and it sweeps across your face. The ingredients include chamomile, cucumber, aloe, and witch hazel to help soothe, purify, refine pores, and restore pH balance. Also, it disappears in seconds with no residue! It’s for all skin types and gets me ready for my day, and the next step below.
Smooth Hydration – Nourishing Moisturizer:
Ohhh to this. It’s a luxurious lotion that glides on like silk and it’s absorbed effortlessly with no greasy residue. It has awesome ingredients like apricot, maqui berry, avocado, and shea better. And it’s packed with vitamin C, vitamin E, and antioxidants to support skin defense, renewal, firmness and hydration. I use it on clean skin both day and night, and my skin feels soft, smooth, and hydrated.
Sparkling Clean – Zinc Face Wash:
This is such a fun one – I use it during a shower or bath, whereas the other products are used before or after. It’s a sparkling gel cleanser that is infused with natural zinc to add texture, draw out impurities and rejuvenate skin. There’s also lemongrass and coconut to stir your senses, and papaya and pomegranate enzymes dissolve excess oil. Hyaluronic acid helps retain healthy moisture on your skin. To use, you lather gently and rinse thoroughly to reveal clean, soft, refreshed skin. This one, like the others, contains no parabens, phthalates, sulfates, or petrolatum. And I love that it’s non-irritating. I also use it before bed when washing my skin before using Smooth Hydration – Nourishing Moisturizer.
And these are some of my favorite products for a great skincare routine. Having a winter beauty routine that I look forward to is part of all of the wonderful delights throughout the winter.
