Winter is well and truly here. The leaves are falling, the temperature is dropping, and heaters are being brought out of storage hibernation. During the cooler months, we remember to rug up, but often forget about our skin. The cold winter weather challenges the look and feel of your skin. The sudden drop in temperature and humidity means the moisture in our skin evaporates, leaving our complexion dull and our skin feeling dry and irritated. Strengthening the skin against environmental elements and irritants is important, as is nourishing the skins natural protective barrier.


We’ve compiled a list of ways to beat the cold-weather blues this winter:


  1. Avoid taking long, hot showers

Try to limit your shower time and avoid anything too scalding. Keep the water temperature below 37 degrees – anything higher can strip the skin of essential moisture and deplete the natural skin barrier.

  1. Wear SPF everyday

Don’t skimp on sunscreen even in the winter months. UV rays are still present even if it’s grey and gloomy outside. Adding SPF to your daily routine should be non-negotiable

  1. Combat the cold from the inside out

It’s not just about what you put on your body, but what you put in it too. Eating a balanced diet, rich in healthy fats and protein such as nuts, white fish and Greek yoghurt can help maintain your skins natural barrier

  1. Carry a multipurpose skin saviour
