WINTER SKINCARE TIPS
Your skin has a lot to deal with in winter. There’s icy temperatures, wind and rain to contend with, plus the drying effect of central heating. Shorter days and lack of sunlight means lots of us experience low vitamin D levels. Skin can suffer from a lack of water and oil; dehydrated skin can appear flaky and tight, and affects oily skin as well as dry. It’s important to switch up your skincare in winter to provide extra care – think of it like getting out your winter coat. It’s time for nourishing moisturisers, facial oils and layering hydration…

WINTER BODY CARE
It’s not just your skincare routine that needs changing up in winter. Your body needs a little extra care during the colder months, even though it’s wrapped up in layers of warm clothing. Make sure to exfoliate regularly with a rich and creamy Body Scrub, to get rid of any dry, flaky skin. Follow with lashings of Body Butter – Shea, Coconut and Wild Argan Oil are our favourites for the winter months. Don’t forget your feet – Hemp is a hero for very dry feet trapped in boots and tights, while Peppermint foot care will help keep things fresh.
WINTER HANDBAG ESSENTIALS
These essentials are perfect for stashing in your handbag for hydration on the go. Lip care is a must to help prevent lips drying and cracking in the colder weather, and same goes for hands – keep your favourite hand cream in your bag to top up on moisture. For gym bunnies, it’s a good idea to keep a mini Body Butter in your bag to nourish post-shower skin before you head out into the cold.
