5 winter skincare must haves

The winter weather can wreak havoc on our skin but, with a few small changes to your skincare routine, you can maintain the healthy glow you sported all summer. Here are some products to add to your bathroom cabinet to help you do that.

1. Aveda Botanical Kinetics Exfoliant

The first step to healthy, hydrated skin during the winter is a good exfoliator. None of the products you use afterwards are going to work half as well if they have a layer of dead skin to work their way through first. This acid from Aveda removes that layer without the need to scrub making it great for sensitive skin types. Simply apply to a cotton pad and sweep all over the face.

2. Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask

A hydrating mask is the perfect partner to freshly exfoliated skin. You can leave this one from Origins on overnight for the best results. Expect plump, hydrated looking skin thanks to ingredients like avocado and glacier water.

3. The Ordinary Rosehip Oil

Swapping your usual night-time moisturiser for a facial oil in the winter months is one of the simplest ways you can give your skin the TLC it needs. Rosehip oil is known for its hydrating and nourishing properties making it a great option for most skin types, plus it comes in at less than £10!

4. The Body Shop Body Butter

It’s just as important to look after the skin on your body as it is your face, especially once the cold, harsh weather sets in. Body butters are The Body Shop’s hero products and they’re a great place to start. From soothing and restoring formulas to creams designed to nourish and energise, they have a cream for every concern.

5. Bumble While You Sleep Damage Repair Mask

The same goes for your hair. Harsh winds and cold weather do nothing for soft, shiny hair so indulging in something like this repair mask from Bumble is essential if you want to take care of it during the winter months. Simply apply to dry hair a couple of times a week and wash out in the morning to give your hair the hydration it needs.
