As we head into winter months- it’s not just our wardrobe that changes – our skincare does too… and before those temperatures drop even lower, it’s time to rescue our skin before the full effects of winter kicks in.
Flake away dead skin cells with a good exfoliator. One I would highly recommend at the moment is MAC’s Volcanic Ash Exfoliator – dry skin will not escape this almighty scrub. The result will be:  soft and supple skin ready to take on all weather.
Moisturise more…

Sooth and soak your skin in a vitamin packed green tea nourishing and retexturing cream byCane & Austin. With glycolic acid to exfoliate and brighten the skins texture you’ll be glowing in no time.
And for a little extra…
Introducing the winter elixir about to take off on QVC, Philosophy recently created a lightweight, detoxifying elixir filled with perfluorodecalin, bringing oxygen straight to the skins cells. Apart from the obvious, the perks of this product are line and blemish-free skin and with that of course – a totally youthful complexion.
Prevent those lips from chapping…

Always carry a tube of lip balm in your handbag during these colder times, you will feel much better for it. Chapped lips are not a pretty sight and not to mention painful! Carmex or Burt’s Bee’s is a personal favorite and both give the lips a tingling sensation that make them feel less dry almost immediately.
 A super gentle cleanser…
philosophy elixir
Your skin is at its most delicate and sensitive at this time and so its paramount to make sure you don’t overdo it on acidic and heavily fragranced skincare. The Perricone MD gentle cleanser is perfect, with anti-aging benefits and nourishing olive oil ingredients.
Relax and Soak…
elemental herbology
A hot bath is the best and most relaxing way to nurture your body, when beaten by weather and a velvet skin winter body wash by Elemental Herbology should do just the trick. For extra comfort and total skin transformation , turning your skin from lacklustre to flushed and radiant this botanical body wash is a real god send.
