Has winter taken it’s toll on your skin? It’s common for your skin to feel more dull, look a little more tired and be all-round less glowy during the cold winter months than it is over the summertime. Well, don’t worry- I’m here to help!
Being a little tomboy as a child and with the nature of my job, I’ve always tended not to wear much make-up. Meaning that on a day-to-day basis, my skin is often completely bare. I prefer it that way, but it does mean that when winter hits and I no longer have my summer bronze to do the job, I need to look even more so towards my skincare routine to keep my skin glowing. I am obsessed with moisturising (I moisturise my face three times per day and body at least once, sometimes twice), so it’s no surprise that I’ve trialled a fair few products. Here are my fave ones to give your skin that much needed boost!
So the weather here in the UK has been miserable for the last few weeks, leaving everybody feeling ready to book their 2018 getaway(/s). I love to travel, always choosing to visit as many hot destinations as my bank account allows, so you would think by now that I would have nailed packing light… Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. I’m a, ‘better too much than too little’ kind of gal. However, I do have a list of key items that I always pack no matter what. Take a look below at what items travel with me wherever I go:
Darker evenings and colder mornings are upon us, which means one thing. Winter is near. The weather may be looking pretty dull, but that doesn’t mean that your skin has to too. Here are my go-to skincare products for keeping my skin healthy, hydrated and glowing throughout the cold winter months.
For Your Face
If you’re looking for a product to intensely hydrate your skin then Dr. Roebuck’s Ultimite Hydrating Serum (£51) at Selfridges may just do the trick. Dr. Roebuck’s pride themselves on using natural and ‘minimal ingredients with maximum results.’ I headed to Selfridges and picked up a personalised serum for my skin type and am in love (ask in store for details). I find that the serum also help add that dewy look to your skin if you’re going make up free.
Staying moisturised is super important if we want to keep our skin healthy. Dry skin flakes, looks dull and can even become very uncomfortable- not what you want!! The most natural way to moisturise is to drink plenty of water, but sometimes our skin needs that little extra help. There are a million moisturisers to choose from on the high street but my all time favourite has to be Nivea’s Hand, Face and Body Cream. All the moisture that my body needs in one little tube.
Usually it’s recommended that separate moisturisers are used for your face, body and hands (thicker for the hands and body and lighter for the face), but the consistency of this cream means that it can be used everywhere and anywhere! I use mine on my face and body every morning and evening and then pop it in my bag to keep my hands moisturised all day long. It’s a particularly good buy if you’re planning travels, as it means that you don’t have to weight down your case with multiple moisturisers. It’s also really great for sensitive skin. What a dream!
Priced as cheaply as moisturisers come, Nivea Hand, Face and Body comes in both a small tube- perfect for slipping in your make up bag- and a larger tub to keep at home. Find yours now in most health and beauty retailers such as Boots and Superdrug. xx
