Winter is a time we often hibernate and neglect ourselves. But Winter is a crucial time for us to protect our skin and keep it hydrated and glowing, even if that is beneath layers of clothes. So we have a few tips and picks for you for Winter.
1. Keep Drinking Water
Just because it isn’t 30 degrees (unless you’re in Darwin) shouldn’t mean you stop drinking water. So my top tip is to keep yourself hydrated. Whether you have a bottle on your desk or glass constantly on the go make sure you don’t forget; you'll be amazed how much your body still needs. In addition I also always spritz my face before applying a serum, the serum locks in the moisture. A wonderful hydrating spritz to use is Kosmea’s Hydrating Rosewater Mist. And to be eco friendly and look after our planet try a reusable water bottle and we even have them in 1 litre sizes. Shop Water Bottles.
2. Protect that Pout
I always know it is Winter when my lips crack or go dry. Your lips are often the first thing to suffer the consequences of colder air and bracing winds. To prevent your lips chapping and drying out by carrying a lip balm with you at all times. We have lots of lip balms, all vegan and Hurraw lip balms are always firm favourites. We also have some beautiful ones from Delicious Skin.
3. Don’t forget your feet!
In Winter your feet are covered up so it’s easy to forget them. Don’t! You might chose to give the polish a break but keep those tootsies buffed and scrubbed. We suggest using our Spa Moisture Socks, Passionate Skin Care Skin Food to moisturise and a good foot pedi. When Spring comes you’ll be ready for your thongs with beautiful looking feet. Shop Feet.
4. Keep glowing!
Just because it’s Winter doesn’t mean you can’t still glow. This is where Self Tan comes into its own. And our natural versions are all you need. Eco Tan’s Winter Skin and Invisible Tan keep you looking naturally tanned. TanOrganic’s Self Tanning Oil is easy to apply and nourishes your skin. Shop our self tanning range.
5. And, finally, Moisturize your face. In Winter you might need a slightly thicker moisturiser like Mukti's Hydrating Cream or Marigold Cream or Delicious Skin's Moisturiser. Keep your skin nourished, moisturised and protected. Shop Moisturising lotions for Dry Skin.
