Soothe with face nourishing oils

At this time of the year, indoor heating, too-hot showers and cold, lashing winds all contribute to dull, dehydrated winter skin. If this sounds like you, if could be time to invest in some nourishing skin oil.

Hydrate with hyaluronic acid

Known by beauty mavens as the secret to moist, youthful complexion, hyaluronic acid is a must-have during the moisture-zapping winter months. Said to be able to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, hyaluronic acid delivers serious hydration – plumping the skin and minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while its rich antioxidant properties work to protect your skin against the elements. You’ll find a range of products containing this wonder ingredient – from serums to moisturisers and hydrating face masks.

Layer up with a serum
While layering up your clothes and accessories goes without saying in winter, the same technique is good for your skin, too. Antioxidant serums are designed to protect your skin against the ravages of cold weather and pollution, and layering one under your moisturiser is a one-way ticket to smooth, hydrated winter skin. For best results, apply your serum before moisturiser and make-up to lock in essential moisture and leave your skin feeling soft, smooth, healthy and rejuvenated.

Moisture on hand
Hands get a particularly rough time of it during the winter and it doesn’t take long for them to look parched, dull and neglected. One way to keep them from getting completely zapped by the cold is to invest in a good pair of gloves. Another way is to slather on rich, repairing hand cream – on the reg. Hand creams are almost as personal as our fashion choices, so find a scent and a texture that you love and make it your best friend this winter.

Get chap(stick) happy
Given that the skin on our lips is among the most sensitive on the body – and the most exposed to the environment – it’s not surprising that our kissers come under fire during the winter months. Number one for soft, hydrated lips? Don’t leave it to chance; have a protective barrier on hand at all times. This means stocking up to make sure you’ve got a good lip balm in your handbag, on your desk, in your makeup bag and on your bedside table.
