It also reduces fine lines and wrinkles, improves firmness and elasticity and maintains skin health without making it look oily or greasy.

Bonus Winter Care Tips

  • Ensure your lips and eyes area are well-moisturized. The skin around here is thinner and tends to get drier.
  • Apply a honey mask once a week. Honey is a humectant which means it locks in moisture and plumps skin. Keep it on for 15 minutes and then wash.
  • Although hot showers in winter are tempting, they can strip the skin of moisture and leave it dry. Apply a moisturizer immediately after your shower to seal in moisture.
  • Don’t forget to wear sunscreen. Even if you can’t see the sun, it’s there, spreading damaging rays that can cause your skin to become dry.
  • Go easy on the exfoliating regime and stick to once a week as your skin is already dry due to winter and too much exfoliation may cause peeling.
  • Drink a lot of water and keep yourself well-hydrated
  • Change your skincare regime. The products you were using during summer may not work for winter. Ensure you get products that are moisturizing and hydrating.

Now kiss your winter woes goodbye because once these products are put to work and they begin to work their magic, we promise the outcome will be soft, yummy skin. Sit back, relax, power through this season and enjoy the cold air, mulled wine, hot chocolate and skin you won’t be able to get enough of. Happy winter, everyone!
