Looking after your Skin this Winter...

While I love the holiday season, I don't particularly enjoy cold weather. I don't know about you but dehydrated, flaking skin can put a damper on my holiday festivities. 

The skin typically becomes much drier in the winter as it's exposed to cold, wind, indoor heating and dry climates. All of these things can wreak havoc on our skins moisture barrier causing it to become dry, dehydrated and unbalanced. 

So here's a few tips and products you should definitely try out this winter to keep your skin in tip top condition...

1. Invest in a good moisturiser!
I can't stress this enough, a good moisturiser applied every day or night (or both) reeky sets your kin to be at its best. It rehydrates and keeps your skin supple.

2. Cleanse, Tone and Exfoliate
Daily is best to get of nasty toxins and anything that sitting on your face. 

3. If your skin is really suffering use a good face mask likewise you can use different ones for different reasons. 
Such as Lush - mask of magnaminty which helps unclog pores.

4. Use a good shower body wash that has moisturising properties too. 
Nivea and Dove always have a good selection that leaves your skin feeling clean and soft. Or likewise run a bath and pick your favourite bath bomb, relax, soak and let it do it's thing. 

5. Chapped lips a reoccurring problem?
You're most likely dehydrated too. Make sure you're drinking enough fluids and apple a good lip bam ofter (Soap & Glory) - Mighty mouth as it nourishes lips but also has a pop of colour to it as well.

6. Be sure to buy a hand cream
 (preferably two, one full size and one small enough to keep in your handbag) this way anytime you can feel your hands drying and cracking you have some cream to hard.

7. A good foot cream doesn't go a miss either. 
Rub as much on as you would like and pop some soft socks on to help it soak in!

8. Wrap up. 
Honestly a scarf, hat and gloves will make all the difference. Not only do they keep you warm but they protect you from the icy winds and rain. 

9. Drink water! 
Without sounding too much like a nagging parent, keeping your fluids levels up help your skin stay hydrated too.
