The Winter is beautiful and with hot chocolates, ice skating and cozy sweatshirts filling up our wardrobe, we can’t help but enjoy ourselves. However, winter is tough and what it does to your skin isn’t cute. The cold weather can cause havoc for your skin and we want you to feel your best this winter and make dry skin, chapped lips and rough knuckles a thing of the past.
Skincare expert and makeup artist, Hayley De Beers told us exactly how cold weather affects our skin. She said, “Cold weather causes havoc with the skin due to the above reasons — it’s the change between hot and cold that we constantly put our skin through. Going outside, and then coming into a warm home or office dries the skin out at both ends, so be sure to give it extra moisture and nourishment.”
So we’ve put together our best beauty tips to keep you looking and feeling your best this winter. Here are 5 of the best beauty tips for keeping your skin glowing all winter.
Exfoliate your lips
Use a balm
After you have exfoliated your lips with our Matcha lip scrub, apply our Matcha Lip Balm. The only lip balm you need this Winter. Made with real green tea, coconut and Avocado oil it is perfect for hydrating and smoothing your pout. It glides on clear and is the perfect handbag essential, so you can conquer the day (and look great doing it.)
Replenish your skin overnight
Your skin needs all the moisture it can get during the winter months. When the brisk air is making your skin really dried out, your regular moisturiser just won’t cut it. Just like your body, your skin also needs some extra winter clothing. So after cleansing your skin before bed as you normally would, use Dream Gelee and let your skin be taken care of while you sleep, well they don’t call it beauty sleep for no reason. Infused with aloe vera and caffeine, this cooling gel gently hydrates and soothes all skin types and looks so cute on your vanity.
Use a tinted moisturiser
A much better alternative to foundation in the winter, due to being the perfect compromise between hydrated and luminous skin. Most people only reach for a tinted moisture in the summer, but it is actually perfect for the winter months allowing skin to be breathable and fresh without the cold weather locking in many layers on your face. Try White Tea Tinted Veil to get the glowy winter skin you’ve always wanted while containing SPF 30 to protect you from UV rays all year round. You glow girl.
Use a face mask
By upping your skincare routine and investing in a super charged mask, such as our Matcha Face Mask. Supercharged to target your complexion concerns, grab one of these and queue up your favorite Netflix series and relax. Our Matcha Face Mask is perfect to help provide moisture for your skin and help reduce redness. Redness is a huge skin problem in winter and will stop you getting the glow, this is due to your indoor heating causing your skin to loose natural oils and moisture to escape. It’s the perfect time to enjoy some self care.
