The coldness of the winter months and spending days inside with central heating on can leave our skin looking dehydrated and dull. I always up my skincare game during the winter to help keep my skin in the best possible condition and prevent any dryness. Here are my top 5 products to help keep your skin looking healthy this winter.
Starting with one of the most recent cleansers to join my collection, the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm is one of the best cleansers I’ve ever tried. This easy and quick to use balm based cleanser uses the warmth from your fingertips to turn into a luxurious oil. It’s non-greasy and lightweight formula leaves my skin with a gorgeous fresh and healthy looking glow after cleansing. It is also great at removing stubborn dirt and makeup from the day. I’m obsessed with this cleanser and I’m so glad I have it to get me through the winter months. It’s definitely a must-have!
If you want something that’s going to give your skin radiance and a healthy look come morning, then The Body Shop Vitamin E Sink-In Moisture Sleeping Mask is the perfect overnight go to. This hassle-free product works by repairing, moisturising and protecting your skin whilst you sleep. The lightweight and almost moisturiser style texture works by absorbing and locking in moisture overnight, helping to prevent dehydrated and dull looking skin. Come morning, you’re left with a fresher and brighter complexion, the perfect combination to start the day.
This sleeping mask is perfect for all skin types and if you suffer from dry skin in particular or find you’re drier during the winter months, then this product will work brilliantly in helping you to manage and combat your problematic areas.
A recent discovery is the Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner*This toner helps to hydrate and refresh your skin morning and night. I never used to use a toner until I tried this one and now I wouldn’t go back. This is such a refreshing way to bring some balance back into the skin and prevent it from looking dull during the drearier time of the year. The Multi-Active toner is specially designed to bind moisturiser into the skin keeping your skin looking and feeling healthy throughout the day. This really helps to contribute to the feeling of smooth skin.
We all know how harsh the winter time can be on our hands. Mine suffer terribly in the winter so it’s always essential that I have a hand cream to hand to keep them looking and feeling healthy. The Freshly Cosmetics Pro Repair Hand and Nail Treatment* is now one of my favourites. This hand and nail treatment comes in a super handy pump applicator making application easy and quick whether you’re on the go or you need to go back to your keyboard. The treatment itself is non-greasy and non-sticky, which again is so useful because it means you don’t have to sit and wait for it to sink in or have it feeling uncomfortable. It soaks into the skin with ease and leaves it feeling so well moisturised.
This is also great for those who suffer from chapped hands and weak nails. It helps to strengthen nails and repair any dryness you may have on your skin by locking in hydration, giving it a much-deserved boost.
I always seem to neglect my body care, but a product that actually makes me want to put the effort in and look after my body more is the Freshly Cosmetics Golden Radiance Body Oil*. Not only does this oil smell absolutely incredible (think fresh and fruity), but it also works wonders on the skin. Its non-greasy formula provides a luxurious glow to the body and it makes your skin feel so soft. I love the healthy glow it gives my skin and how it encourages me to take more care. It’s the perfect night-in pamper product. Unlike some body oils or creams, this dries instantly, so you don’t have to worry about feeling sticky for the rest of the night. It is such an incredible product and one I would 100% recommend.
