“In the winter, I like to add a super hydrating facial oil in with my foundation or concealer to make sure my face is hydrated and doesn’t look flakey or cakey! I also stay away from any mattifying products during the wintertime.
Swap out your mattifying lipsticks and foundations for creamy versions that won’t make you look dry.
Go deeper with your lipsticks and blushes! I prefer reaching for richer shades like Bordeaux with blush to match. Carry a moisturizing, unscented hand cream with you at all times! Our hands are the first to age and they take a major beating in the winter.”

“Aside from the effect weather has on the skin, public transport love to wack the central heating up really high, so we end up boiling-hot and sweaty, and our skin suffers as a result. I know when I get home from commuting to London I feel just as grimy as I do during the humid summer months. I still swear by Liz Earl Cleanse and Polish because it removes all the grime from my face. I use the Lavender and Rose version currently because I have become completely converted to calming effects of Lavender.
Another one I can wholeheartedly endorse is the Purity, one step facial cleanser, it’s so proficient at removing makeup and leaving you squeaky clean. In winter our lips face a new wrath, bitter winds, frosty mornings, changing temperatures. I still use the Frank Body lips set to scrub away the flaky and dry bits of skin on the lips and finish off with the soothing balm. Lush’s Lip Scrubs are also very effective and smooth out the texture of your lips before applying lipstick.
I think ensuring you get quality sleep is so important because you are often feeling more lethargic than normal due to the dark mornings and afternoons and lack of Vitamin D. I’ve been using Sweet Dreams products by Feather and Down to help encourage a good night’s rest each night.”
- The body balm is made with natural oils and coffee seed extract to hydrate, nourish and moisturise dry skin.

- COCONUT OIL It's trending for a reason babe. The rich, fatty acids of coconut oil provide moisture that softens the skin without blocking pores. GRAPESEED & SWEET ALMOND OILS It takes two to tango... and two to scrub. It also takes these two to hydrate your skin to fight off dryness and fine lines.
- COFFEE ARABICA SEED OIL Oil derived from the coffee bean plant (I told you I'm all about coffee). Full of Vitamin E and antioxidants. BEESWAX Not to be confused with ear wax... or leg wax. Beeswax shields your skin from the outside elements and soothes irritations. Plus, it won't clog pores.

“My best beauty tip for winter would be to check the ingredients of both liquid makeup and skin care for denatured alcohol, also known as alcohol denat. This ingredient, especially if it is listed early in the ingredient list, can not only dry out the skin but also cause damage. This is especially important in the dry winter months when humectants (such as glycerin) are less likely to be able to pull moisture from the air and into the skin for additional hydration.”

“The central heating in the home, car and at work can really dry out your skin in the winter so my top tip would be to use a deeply nourishing night cream and an overnight mask.
