Winter might be the season of lush sweaters, roaring fires and cold, crisp walks, but dry skin just isn’t in. From chapped lips to cracked cuticles, we have you covered with all the solutions you need to keep your skin moisturised and nourished.
For Dry Skin
IN THE MORNING…
The dryness of the winter air is what results in flaky skin, so getting it hydrated first thing is essential. Try to avoid washing your face in the morning, as you may irritate your face when you head outside. Instead opt for nourishing oils, and if you want to apply make up, a non-greasy BB cream is perfect for giving an even complexion whilst keeping the skin hydrated with a healthy glow.
When it comes to bedtime, always stick to mild creams that moisturise – body butters are perfect too. Oils are best as they have all night to work their magic – if you have particularly dry hands then opt for a specialised cream.
For Chapped Lips or Watery Eyes
Although your whole body suffers from winter dryness, the lips get a particularly hard time. Licking your lips before letting the saliva evaporate dehydrates the skin, so the best way to prevent this is the use of a lip scrub. It will get rid of all the dead skin and provide the perfect primer. Avoid heavy lipsticks during particularly cold days, instead opt for moisturising balms and clear glosses. Watery eyes are a given when the chilly wind picks up, so ensure you have your waterproof mascara on hand. Soothe any soreness with a gel eye mask at night for the perfect mid-week pamper session.
For Static or Messy Hair
Hiding your hair in your hat is perfect when you’re outside, but once you’re indoors, hat hair can strike and it’s a real pain. To avoid it becoming static, preserve the moisture in your hair by using our Finishing Gloss Anti-Frizz serum with Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil – the perfect ingredient to keep your hair moisturised. Fight dry locks with Care & Repair leave-in conditioner and if you’re looking for that quick fix on the go, try a High Shine Spray with Panthenol (Vitamin B5) complete with special antistatic qualities.
For Cracked Cuticles
Your nails and cuticles are most vulnerable at this time of year, so it’s time to amp up your regime. Use our cuticle oil before a hand cream to lock in the moisture, and maintain those cuticles with clippers and cuticle sticks. Nails can also be prone to cracking and breaking, so keep a nail file handy.
