As daylight saving ends and the warm sunny days of summer become a distant memory, your mood isn’t the only thing that can suffer. Cold, frosty temperatures can cause havoc to one’s skin, leaving it dry and dull.
Here are some of our favourite tips to keep your skin healthy and radiant as the temperatures continue to drop!
- Use a gentler cleanser
Changing to a mild, cream wash that contains super hydrating ingredients such as New Zealand Manuka Honey, Glycerin or natural plant oils, helps eliminate the build-up of dirt, oil and makeup from the day – without stripping the skin of its natural oils and moisture.
- Moisturise moisturise moisturise
Winter elements like cold air, frosty mornings, hot showers and heaters are not very kind on our skins moisture barrier. Some people choose to use a thicker, more nourishing moisturiser during the winter months. Bees Brilliance has a NEW lightweight but effective intense daily hydrating cooling gel cream that provides a boost of hydration and helps the skins natural ability to retain water.
- Carry hand cream in your purse
Your hands can experience the most exposure to cold weather. Carrying a nourishing hand cream in your bag can help prevent the skin from peeling around the nail and becoming less than glamorous.
- Don’t forgot your lips
Though lips are considered a separate part of the face, they are covered with very sensitive skin. Our favourite lip balm is Burt’s Bees Beeswax Balm – a hydrating balm to help protect and nourish the lips. Be prepared for those moments of passion in your life!
- Moisturise as soon as you leave the shower
In winter we tend to enjoy nice long steamy showers. This tends to weaken our skins moisture barrier and strip away any natural oils. As most of us can’t stand slightly cooler water, it’s always good practice to apply a body lotion as soon as you step out, while the skin is damp, and lock in the moisture. I recommend our NEW Bees Brilliance Instant Hydra Firming Shot. This innovation has an instant cooling effect on the skin using the latest award winning ingredients. An intense daily hydrating and cooling gel cream that instantly firms, lifts and plumps skin for that “selfie inspired look”.
