In winter it’s even more important to take care of your skin as the combination of cold winter air and central heating cause havoc.
The three most significant areas are dull parched skin, irritated tight skin and chapped lips. We often just slap a bit of moisturiser on and hope for the best, but sometimes getting a product that is specific to your problem may help it go away.
Dull parched skin
When your skin feels dry and rough like sandpaper, it’s lacking one crucial element – moisture. Short of spraying water on your face every five minutes there are products that will help get back that vital element. Aim for a moisturiser that has the keywords ‘nourishing, hydration, radiance and moisturising’. Save money with the Simple brand Hydrating light moisturiser, a moisturiser that not only adds moisture to skin but adds that vital glow too. Or why not spend on Clarins Blue Orchid face Treatment, a world famous brand that uses emollient patchouli to drench and revitalise skin.
Irritated, tight skin
If your face feels a bit like someone is giving you a impromptu face lift there’s probably something wrong. Not only does your face lack moisture but it needs a awful lot of tlc to get it back to its original condition too. Try to find a product that has the words ‘soothing and hydrating on’. Combine this with the skin treatment Avene Trixera at £9, a solution that works on Eczema sufferers for both adult and children. It also helps to heal sore skin. Or if you’re feeling flush buy Elemental Herbology Purify and Soothe Facial cleansing balm at £29 which will hydrate and nourish your skin with vital nutrients.

One of the number one problems in winter are chapped lips. Having sore wind bitten lips is not only painful but not very pretty too. To get back your perfect pout for those nights in all you need is a soothing and nourishing formula that will restore your lips to their former selves. Save some pennies with the famous Burt’s Bees lip balm at £2 or splash out on the honey Reve De Miel lip balm that offers a luxurious creamy texture that will heal your lips with its natural elements.
