Winter Skin Care. As I have always had sensitive and dry skin for as long as I could remember, I have always been looking for the right skin care products. Especially in winter, my face gets drier when the heater is on. With time, I have created my skin care routine with quality items at reasonable prices. I keep my routine simple with only 3 steps, cleaning, hydrating with serum and moisturizing with cream.
洗卸妆品：我习惯一天洗两次脸，早上只用清水，晚上用花王 Biore 温和水嫩洗面乳，不过度刺激皮肤却又洗得相当干净；如果有化妆会先用 Loreal 卸眼唇，化妆棉片浸湿卸眼唇液，闭上眼睛轻敷眼皮几秒后，就算是防水的眼妆也卸的很干净。然后搭配贝德玛的舒妍卸脸部底妆，舒妍很适合皮肤敏感的人使用，一样先用化妆棉浸湿舒妍轻轻擦拭脸部残妆，脸没有被化妆棉蹂躏的感觉，反而会非常舒服。
｜Winter Skin Care｜Step 1: Cleaning
The 1st step of winter skin care is cleaning. I clean my face twice a day and I usually wash my face with water only in the morning. At night, I clean my face with Kao Biore Facial Washing Foam Moisture. The foam is pretty mild and I love ti. When I wear makeup, I wet the cotton sheet with Loreal Paris Gentle Eye Makeup Remover, and swipe it across my eyes for waterproof eye makeup. It doesn't burn my eyes and removes heavy eye makeup thoroughly. I also use Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution to remove my face makeup. Bioderma is fragrance-free, alcohol-free and leaves my face feeling clean and hydrated.
关于皮肤保养我倾向药妆品牌居多，有皮肤科医师背书更佳。我洗完脸会先擦 Vichy 的智慧动能保湿精华，补充水分。Vichy 的这支保湿精华我很喜欢，质地温和很容易吸收。最可惜的是Vichy一贯的添加香精，香味略重，如果能不添加香料就更好了。（推荐你看：【天然美肌关键】香水有毒！人工香料是一种神经毒素？）
｜Winter Skin Care｜Step 2: Hydrating
The 2nd skin care step in winter is hydrating with serum. I depend on dermatologists' advice and tips a lot and I have perfected my skin care products with their top picks. After rinsing, I apply Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Power Serum. The texture of this serum is milky and goes on easily. It has a scent and I usually prefer unscented skin care products, but it does hydrate and work really good on my skin.
｜Winter Skin Care｜Step 3: Moisturizing
The 3rd step of winter skin care is moisturizing with rich cream. In addition to the serum, I apply the Stiefel cream as my last skin care step. Upon the advice of dermatologist Dr. Pin-Chi Chiu, who is the authority on dermatology in Taiwan, I started using Stiefel Physiogel lotion/cream a couple of years ago. Physiogel is gentle on sensitive skin as it contains no perfume, preservatives, alcohols and colorants. I have been using this product for many years and this works fantastic on my face. I usually apply Physiogel lotion in summer and cream in winter. On snow day, I use Stiefel Physiogel Intensive Cream for my extremely dry face. Another lotion that I also love is Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream. Cetaphil is recommended by a lot of dermatologists for dry and sensitive skin as it is also non-fragrant and non-comedogenic.
最后是番外篇 - 手部保养。其实以前我在台湾很少擦护手霜，海岛气候潮湿手不大干。直到来美国后冬天常常手指关节和指甲边缘干燥到裂开，才养成擦护手霜的习惯。所以学乖了睡前会擦瑰柏翠的护手霜，再用瑰柏翠万用油膏加强干燥的关节。
｜Winter Hand Care｜
For hand care in winter, I actually rarely applied hands cream when I was in Taiwan as the weather is pretty humid. But after moving to Boston, the winter is so freezing and severe that my hands get dry and cracked all the time. Now I use Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Therapy every night before going to bed, and apply their All Purpose Balm for my drier elbows and cuticles. The All Purpose Balm is rich and infused with shea butter, softening my skin really well.
