Winter Skin Saviours….

Our skin offers different challenges as each season passes, but Winter seems by far the trickiest. It can take a lot of trial and error to try and build up a routine that helps your skin stay moisturised and smooth over the colder months so here’s the lowdown on the products I use once or twice a week over winter  to ensure my skin looks tip top.

Lush Angels on Bare Skin – I gushed about this in a recent review and with due reason. This removes dead skin and dirt while leaving your skin squeaky clean and moisturised. Most importantly, it won’t irritate sensitive skin like many scrubs.

Botanics Conditioning Clay Mask – This is a wonderful  mask for probematic skin and  helps declog pores and remove grease. There are many more expensive versions but this is well priced and effective.

Sanctuary Moisture Boosting Facial Mask –  After taking care of my pores I like to use a hydrating mask to help my skin glow and this one is a miracle worker. Infused with organic Shea butter and rosehip seed oil, it leaves your skin soft and glowing. It’s  so mild but effective that I use it right up under my eyes to help hydrate the delicate eye area and it never irritates. It only comes in sachets for around €3 but you’ll easily get three or four masks from it so it’s great value.

Finally, for those stubborn dry patches on the face or body that can sometimes surface I’m loving ‘Ultrabalm’ from Lush, an amazing Vegan friendly all purpose balm to keep close to hand whenever you feel a bit scaly!

So what are your skin saviours for the cold months?
