We all make lots of wardrobe and lifestyle changes when Winter comes in to full force, and your skincare routine should be no exception. With colder weather on the cards for another couple of months, you should give your skin as much help as it needs to stay hydrated, plump and youthful during the harsher weather!
The colder months definitely call for a Serum. Serums are lightweight moisturisers that penetrate deeper into your skin, delivering benefits below the surface for longer lasting results. Regular use can give your skin a more firm, smooth texture. There are tons of great options, and we recommend the Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules, the Skin Nerd Vitamin A & C Serum, and our bestselling Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair.
Give your skin a boost while you sleep with an extra hit of moisture from an overnight mask. We recommend a strong dose from our Top Picks of Waso by Shiseido, Clinique Moisture Surge or MyClarins Re-Charge. These gorgeous formulas restore moisture overnight, allowing you to wake up with hydrated, plumped, gorgeous skin in the morning!
During the colder months, skin can look dull, tired and dehydrated. Give your skin a boost during the day with a refreshing and hydrating face mist. Not only will this refresh your skin, helping it look more healthy and plump, it will also sit over your makeup to help it last longer during the harsher weather. We've chosen the MyClarins Re-Fresh Mist, the Pestle & Mortar Balancing Mist and the Inglot Refreshing Face Mist, which will all give you a healthy glow!
Remove makeup, dirt and impurities without stripping the skin of it's protective barrier by using a creamy cleanser. We've chosen a selection from Clarins, Lancôme and Estée Lauder, each leaves the skin soft, supple, perfectly refreshed while retaining as much moisture as possible.
Add a Mask
Nothing says Winter Skincare quite like a face mask. These picks from Estée Lauder, Seoulista and Shiseido are sure to add some relaxation to your routine, while also giving your skin a much needed hit of suppleness, plumpness and hydration.
A great way to help skin get back to it's best self is with a great exfoliator. These choices, from Waso by Shiseido, Estée Lauder & Clarins, will all help to remove the dead skin and give the surface of your skin a new lease of life, without being too harsh!
Not Just the Face
Don't forget to treat your entire body to some extra moisture during the colder months, including your hands, feet, lips and limbs! Give them a nourishing boost with a little help from Seoulista, Human & Kind and L'Occitane to name a few top picks!.
