If you’re one to snuggle up with an electric blanket or hot water bottle in winter, then you’re going to love this guide to the best warming beauty products that heat up your face and body as you use them. Be warned - they’re totally addictive and you won’t want to go without them this winter.


Try a warming cleanser

If you think your shower could do with a little more heat, a warming cleanser is the way to go. Bioré Warming Anti-Blackhead Cleanser gets hotter once it is emulsified on your skin, and also contains salicylic acid to dislodge niggling blackheads from your forehead, cheeks, chin and nose.


Try a warming peel

A heavy-duty exfoliant, like philosophy microdelivery resurfacing peel, can target texture and tone, and heat your face up mildly. The product has two steps: First, apply the vitamin c crystals all over your face, then massage the salicylic activating gel over the top of the crystals to activate both products. Leave the formula on for three minutes then wash it off with warm water.


Try a warming mask

A warming mask like The Body Shop Mineral & Ginger Warming Massage Clay Mask heats up your face while you use it and it nourishes dry skin. The key ingredients are kaolin clay to detoxify, ginger to reduce inflammation and seaweed to soothe.


Try a warming body cream

Something that’ll seriously heat up your body is with a warming body cream, like Alpha Keri Body Slimfit Heat-Activating Slimming and Firming Serum. Infused with caffeine, this treatment-in-a-bottle can target stubborn fat deposits (especially on your thighs and tummy) and tone all over. The heating action helps boost circulation to improve the appearance of cellulite.


Try a warming foot cream

As you feel the cold most in your feet, it makes sense to put on a warming foot cream this winter. Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Warming Foot Smoother fuses a mix of Tahitian volcanic sand, fine pumice and sea salt to slough away dead skin, as well as blue sea kale to keep skin soft and soothed.

With spring just around the corner, try these five-minute workouts to help you get fit, fast.
