We don’t know about you, but our skin is well and truly feeling the winter cold – think dry skin, flat hair and cracked lips combined. To save us until spring, we have found the top products and tips for staying hot and hydrated over the next month.
Swap your regular moisturiser for something more hydrating. During winter our skin is often drier and needs a little extra TLC. After showering use a body butter over a body moisturiser for smoother, healthier skin.
Kiehls Intensive Treatment and Moisturiser for Dry and Callused Areas $37.00
The Body Shop Mango Softening Body Butter $25.00
Lush Dream Cream Hand and Body Lotion $29.95
Just because the weather is cooler, doesn’t mean you should skip the SPF in your face moisturiser. Not only can UV rays still damage your skin but the winter months will dry out your skin, which can cause breakouts and make it harder to blend your makeup. Apply an SPF facial moisturiser before your base to protect your face and ensure even makeup application.
There’s no denying our love for dewy skin, but switching to a matte foundation is the best way to fight against the cold, rainy days and keep your face lasting longer. After applying a matte base, invest in a liquid highlighter to keep your skin illuminated throughout the day and fake the dew! We love cult-favourite Estee Lauder’s Double Wear paired with Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops.
If you suffer from chapped lips, you’ll know just how much worse it is during the cooler periods. Apply a quality lip balm under your lipstick or opt for a tinted lipgloss to keep your lips lush.
Inject shine into your lifeless locks by using a regular hair mask after washing. Once out of the shower, work a shine spray into your hair avoiding the roots – thank us later!
Waterproof mascara is the bane of our existence, but if your makeup tends to run during winter using a waterproof alternative will save you. Our tip? Use a regular mascara on your top lashes and a waterproof mascara, like Eyeko London’s Sport Waterproof Mascara, on your bottom lashes to prevent smudging.
