Although we’re quite fond of snuggling up on the couch and cosying up with a cup of tea, winter has its downfalls, particularly its ill effects on our face and body. Luckily, whatever your winter beauty concern, we’ve got just the cure.
For your dry face
Constantly exposed to the elements, the most common place your skin can suffer is also the most noticeable to you and everyone else. Our top skin care tip for your face: Don’t skimp on the hydration!
Aesop Immediate Moisture Facial Hydrosol: This rose petal infused hydration mist is perfect for refreshing and reviving your dry skin. Apply after cleansing and throughout the day for an extra dose of hydration.
La Prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil: A light dry oil that harnesses advanced hydration and plant stem cell technology to strengthen the skin’s resilience to natural moisture loss. It also contains oil extracts to restore the skin by conditioning and replenishing moisture levels.
Pevonia Botanica Dry Skin Cleanser: The light, creamy cleanser contains essential oils to remove skin impurities while deep cleansing the epidermal surface.
For your dry body
Covered by your woolly layers, it’s easy to forget about the rest of your body when it comes to moisturising. To avoid cracked, reptilian-like skin, always apply a layer of body moisturiser as soon as you jump out of the shower.
Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days Lotion with Shea Butter: The rich formulation helps to repair and nourish extra dry and damaged skin, while the texture is non-greasy and fast-absorbing.
Boots Laboratories Serum7 Protecting Body Serum: A silky moisturising serum-like body treatment that absorbs quickly into the skin. It protects the skin’s surface and refines its texture for more radiant, softer skin.
philosophy hope in a jar for dry skin: It helps relieve dryness and improve the natural moisture balance to soothe and comfort irritated and sensitive skin.
Sometimes even the best makeup can’t cover up redness, and you need to go to proper skin care for the cure.
Ella Bache Energising Crème Masque: The rich, soothing mask lubricates, nourishes and firms the skin's surface, improving elasticity and the appearance of fine lines to give skin energy and vitality.

Aspect Red-Less 21: This serious cosmetic corrective treatment minimises redness and reduces the appearance of stressed and tight skin, while protecting and repairing, too.
