As summer humidity slinks away we are left with cold, dry winter air that sucks the moisture right out of our skin. I immediately notice a change in my skin’s appearance when the temps drop significantly. For me, it is always an unwelcome change that I dread every year. However, there are ways that we can fight the effects of this colder change in temperature! Switching out some of our lighter summer skincare products can help combat dry, irritated skin issues that happen in fall and winter.
Ah, hydrating toners! They are one of the most pleasurable stages of skincare, in my opinion. Essences, toners, watery serums- I’m happy to splash layers and layers of them on my face. Origins Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion (henceforth to be shortened to Mega Mushroom Lotion) is one such toner.
I like to layer hydrating products under my eyes, so this seemed like it would fit into my routine well. However, I was actually much more excited about the lip plumping/hydrating uses of this product than the eye plumping. My lips are chronically dehydrated, so having an extra dose of hydration in the mornings would be extremely helpful. I was intrigued to see how effective Bubblewrap was in its ability to hydrate both areas!
