Six Steps to Fresh Winter Skin
It’s the time of year where we want to freshen up our beauty regime.
But, when it’s cold outside and it’s taking a toll on your skin, it’s easy to stick to what you know just until spring. This year, we’re challenging you to wipe out your current routine, and have a go at ours!
If you’re looking for body care that will nourish dry winter skin, haircare to tame wind-dried hair and a new makeup look that evokes the winter colours whilst helping your skin, take a look at our 6 winter skin wonders!
Energise your day
Your alarm goes off in the morning and it’s dark outside, do you struggle to wake up in the morning? We did too, until we discovered ESPA’s Energising Shower Gel! Start your day with a kick by cleansing your skin and awakening the senses with the gorgeous zesty aroma. The coconut extract deeply cleanses the skin leaving it soft and smooth, whilst the eucalyptus and peppermint revitalises and energises for the perfect awakening.
As we get older, our hair gets thinner, and winter wind dries our hair making it brittle. Don’t worry, it’s only natural, but we just love full, soft and bouncy locks! To combat this, we’ve been using Grow Gorgeous’ Intense Shampoo and Conditioner. This gorgeous treatment duo has been specifically developed for lacklustre, limp hair to give it a well-needed boost, and we can really see the difference. We love how bouncy, thick and nourished our hair looks right now!
We’ll let you into a secret, the body lotion we’re using was actually developed for Keratosis Pilaris, but the formula is so gorgeous we use it every day! Whether you suffer from KP or just want to beat dry winter skin, we’ll let you into our little secret- we won’t tell if you don’t. Our secret is Ameliorate’s Transforming Body Lotion. Cold air, wind and even the snow we’ve spotted on the weather forecast can take a toll on your skin by drying it out, but this body lotion exfoliates, deeply hydrates and moisturises for 24 hours; long enough to tackle any outing! It also absorbs quickly, leaving our skin soft and supple throughout the day.
When the temperature drops and the mornings are darker, it can make you feel tired and sluggish. Our shower gel choice invigorates our mind and body, but sometimes our eyes need to look a little more awake! An eye-widening mascara does just the trick, and, as you may have seen from previous posts, we love Eyeko’s Lash Alert right now. The botanical formula energises lashes to create perky volume and curl, and the nourishing formula protects your lashes from the winter elements; creating the perfect formula or mascara and lash treatment.
If your skin is feeling particularly dry this winter, we’d recommend wearing as little makeup as possible. However, we love to touch up our simple look with a gorgeous winter-hued mascara! Currently, Illamasqua’s Glamore Lipstick in Glissade provides the perfect fusion of colour and hydration. The pretty winter berry hue is just perfect for the season, but we particularly love the hydrating and moisturising ingredients that leave our lips soft and conditioned.
Soak up the benefits
Grab your candles and your scented bubbles, there’s nothing more relaxing than a warming bath to wind down in during winter. Currently, we’re opting for ESPA’s Bergamot and Jasmine Foam Bath so we can be whisked away to a luxury spa for an hour! The luxurious blend of pure essential oils provides the perfect relaxation to end a busy, blustery day, and the soap-free formula naturally foams to cleanse the skin and leave it beautifully soft and refreshed for the next day.
