Baby its cold outside! No, its actually freezing and our poor skin is suffering! Our first reaction to winter is usually to hibernate and pile on several layers of clothing- our cosmetic needs, however, tend to get left behind. Skin dries out and flakes during winter which is why a seasonal survival kit is an absolute essential! Check out some super moisturising goodies that are bound to bring back your summer glow!
1) Sounds obvious but...EOS Lip Balm
EOS is a must have natural product for your lips this season. It protects your lips from chapping as well as prevents cold sores around the mouth area. The balm contains jojoba oil, shea butter and Vitamin E, in other words EOS is basically food for your lips. It is also your lipsticks best friend. Matte lip colours are able to stay for hours on end with this baby whilst remaining moisturised! Not only does it help your face but EOS actually makes an excellent intensive cuticle moisturiser too. Oh and its handbag friendly... Bonus! Retails at Boots: £6.50
2) Kiehl’s- Ultra Facial Cream (How could Kiehl’s not be on the list?!)
This cream is one of the most moisturising products on the market. All you need is a pea size amount to instantly rehydrate your entire face. Don’t mistake this for a heavy cream, the texture is very light almost whipped and absorbs instantly without any greasy residue. Be sure to apply SPF daily with this though as it provides no sun protection! Retails at Kiehl’s: £43.50
3) Burt’s Bees- Intense Hydration Mask
Burt’s Bees definitely hit the mark with this mask due to one particular ingredient; Clary Sage. This plant is known for being able to survive the driest weather conditions due to its unique ability to retain moisture. This key ingredient is what allows the mask to fight dehydration so successfully. Another aim of this product is anti-ageing. It fights wrinkles and fine lines leaving you with soft, younger looking skin. Retails at Burt’s Bees: £19.99
4) The Body Shop- Hemp Hand Protector
The Hemp Hand Protector is definitely one of The Body Shops best and most popular products. The key ingredient Hemp Oil is known for its moisturising properties and has been clinically proven to reduce skin irritations and itchiness. The anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties also help to protect the skin from ageing and wrinkling. The Body Shop specifically use a special type of hemp called “Finola” and its unique nourishing properties are known to hydrate beautifully for several hours. Retails at The Body Shop: £5.00
