May 27, 2022by Gabby - F&F

You're not alone if your thinking 'why does my skin get drier in winter?' Cold air, low humidity levels, harsh wind and dry indoor heat all play a part in zapping your skin of moisture.

Unfortunately this lack of moisture leaves your skin looking a lot less radiant than normal and not just in the obvious places. Your face, body, hands and feet are all susceptible to the cold winters tricks. But don't stress, we're telling you the best moisturisers to use, to combat dry skin — read on!

Face Moisturisers

Face Moisturisers are great for beating the dehydrating effects of winter's spell, but they also help ensure your skin stays clear from outbreaks too. Dry and stiff skin are notorious for causing infections and outbreaks, so stay clear from that, with: 

Mukti Moisturiser — this deeply nourishing and soothing facial moisturiser is made for skin types that require gentle, yet restorative ingredients. Just a couple of pumps of this, is sure to leave your skin thoroughly hydrated, nourished and protected. Ethique's Solid Face Moisturiser Stick, isn't called the perfector for nothing. It soothes dry and dehydrated skin and blurs out skin imperfections.

Sukin's Sensitive Facial Moisturiser and Sukin Hydrating Day Cream are some of our best sellers here at F&F. They encourage skin radiance, improve skin texture and softness.

Body Moisturisers

Another top seller here at F&F is the Weleda Vegan Skin Food Body Butter. It's ideal for the whole body, but particularly great for elbows, knees, cuticles — those extra dry areas. 

If you're looking for something that's easy to apply, convenient for travel and of course sustainable, you'll love Ethique's Body Butter Sticks. Choose between scents, Jasmine & Ylang Ylang, Sweet Orange & Vanilla and Coconut & Lime. They are all incredibly moisturising and smell absolutely delicious!

Noosa Basics Ultra Rich Skin Cream - Shea Butter contains anti-inflammatory properties to help dry, itchy skin. For a more rich- enhanced smell try the Cocoa Butter. Sukin Hydrating Body Lotion Lime & Coconut is beautifully hydrating, restores the skin’s moisture barrier and helps to soothe dry skin. We're also a personal fan of the Coconut & Pineapple Lotion

Foot Care

If you had to name one country who is known for walking around everywhere barefoot, we're sure it'd be us Aussies, and winter is no exception. It's no wonder our poor little feet are susceptible to dryness.  

This winter, do your feet a favour and show them some extra tender loving care. Viva La Body Petite Solid Foot Polish deodorises and cleanses dry cracked heels. For smooth soft feet follow through with the Soothing Foot Lotion. It's perfect for dry, cracked skin. 

P'ure Papayacare - Papaya Foot & Heel Balm is also very much a crowd pleaser! This balm helps moisturise dry, cracked or rough skin. Simply apply overnight and cover the feet with Socks to reveal healthy-looking feet. Boody's Chunky Bed Socks are pure comfort!
