When the cold weather hits it’s always a shock to the system, but this year it seems to feel even worse with the unseasonably warm weather before Christmas lulling us into a false sense of security.
Well now the cold snap has arrived with a vengeance, your skin might be feeling the effects.
It could be tight chapped cheeks or a sore nose following a cold, or perhaps cracked lips that don’t seem to improve no matter how much lip balm you slick on. Whatever the issue, when the cold weather strikes, you’ll need to give your skin some serious TLC to get things back on track.
Dashing in from the cold outdoors to warm and toasty central heating can leave skin feeling parched and dry.
Boost your routine with the addition of nourishing face mask to add some extra moisture too. Some moisturising masks can even be put on at bedtime and left to soak in all night for a super intensive moisture boost.
And if you have fond memories of mum rubbing Vick on your chest for coughs and colds, take a look at our Aromatic Chest Rub, a gorgeous warming & decongestant aroma in a totally organic formulation.
Conventional lip balms based on petroleum oils and synthetic fragrances are usually the chief culprit for cracked and sore lips that never heal. Opt for an organic lip balm packed with natural oils that actively nourish and soothe the skin and see an immediate benefit. From £2.49.
We hope these winter skincare tips; provide a little relief from your cold weather skincare troubles. Hang on in there; it will be spring before you know it (hopefully!)
