Tips For Winter Skin
Each season poses its own unique challenges to our skin, but winter is an expert at bringing out the worst in our complexion. Dry, flaky, itchy… We know that hydration and nourishment are the keys to protecting your skin during winter. Here are the best ways to combat the effects of cold weather!
Enriched with Sweet Almond, Jojoba and Rose Oils, our Almond Cleansing Milk helps to nourish, soothe and hydrate the skin, whilst gently removing impurities.
Top tip: Avoid hot water when washing your face. If the water temperature is too hot, you can scald the delicate skin and cause further irritation by dilating blood vessels.
Total Action Toner
Our Helichrysum Hyaluronic Toner has a serum-like texture, whilst also doing what a toner needs to do - balancing the pH of the skin. It’s formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, Helichrysum Water, White Wine extract and Amino Acids to help slow down the ageing process, anti-oxidise and hydrate the skin.
Top tip: Pitter-patter toner over your face with your fingertips to boost circulation.
To get the most out of your skincare, your serum should always be applied before a cream or an oil. Serums are designed to penetrate the skin deeper than moisturisers thanks to their smaller molecular size. They are a true powerhouse of any skincare regime and vital for winter skin! Our age-defying Hibiscus Serum is formulated with two botanical peptides (Hibiscus and Green Pea), two molecular weights of hydrating Hyaluronic Acid, a Ceramide Complex and other active ingredients that work hard to help your skin lock in as much moisture as possible.
Top tip: For the best results, serum should be applied after cleansing and toning but before moisturising. This way, it can deliver powerful ingredients directly to the skin.
The Holy Grail
Our Hyaluronic Acid Vials are for serious skincare lovers. Age-defying Hyaluronic Acid holds one thousand times its weight in water and it, essentially, acts like a sponge. We produce less Hyaluronic Acid as we age and this product helps to support the skin’s natural structure and plump it up with moisture for firmer feeling skin.
Top tip: Use it as a second serum and add a vial after the application of your serum.
Winter is the time of year when fine lines start appearing around the eye area, but our Almond Eye Cream works real wonders. It’s an age-defying cream formulated with Niacinamide B3, Panthenol B5, Sweet Almond Oil, Aloe Leaf Juice and Hyaluronic Acid for extra hydration.
Top tip: It’s important to use your ring finger when applying eye cream. It allows you to tap the product in more lightly around this delicate area.
Powerful All-Day Protection
Our Prickly Pear Face Cream packs a powerful punch. Prickly Pear contains a unique class of antioxidants called Betalains and is classified as a ‘superfood’ ingredient! Other ingredients include Hyaluronic Acid, a botanical peptide (Hibiscus), Olive Oil and Olive Oil Fractions to protect the skin and make it feel energised and hydrated.
Fun fact: Creams create a protective barrier on the skin, lock in the natural moisture and prevent water loss.
Knight in Shining Armour
Our Hibiscus Night Cream is a true hero. This product is extra rich to nourish your skin while you sleep and it is loaded with two botanical peptides (Hibiscus and Green Pea), Hyaluronic Acid, a Ceramide Complex, Olive Oil Fractions and much more. You can also use it during the day if you would like a heavier dose of moisture. Our founder, Irene, uses it on flights!
Top tip: Richer moisturisers are a must for winter skincare. You can even add a few drops of oil to the night cream for added richness.
This age-defying Rose Face Oil can also be interchanged with the Hibiscus Night Cream at night-time. Packed with oils from Almonds, Rose, Sunflowers, Olives, Avocados and Jojoba Seeds, this Vitamin E-rich product hydrates and softens the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines.
Fun fact: The great thing about oils is that you can self-massage them into your skin. This is great for boosting circulation, plumping and lifting the skin.
This little pot of wonder can fit in your pocket and will keep you hydrated all day long! Our Pistachio Lip Balm is enriched with Shea Butter, Mango Butter and Pistachio Oil.
Fun fact: It’s not just a lip balm, it can be used on any area of the skin that needs hydration!
Our White Wine Body Cream is a serious body booster. It’s a hydrating cream made with Organic Sicilian White Wine, Hyaluronic Acid and Triglycerides to refresh and soften the skin and help combat environmental stress.
Fun fact: White wine might sound like an unusual skincare ingredient, but the phenols found in white wines are strong antioxidants, which means they provide powerful protection!
In Good Hands
We often forget to protect our hands, but they really suffer during the winter months. Our Vanilla Hand Cream, enriched with Aloe Leaf Juice, Almond and Sunflower Seed Oils, as well as Calendula extract, will help combat environmental stress and refresh and soften dry hands.
Top tip: The best way to apply hand cream is to put some onto the back of your hand and rub the back of your hands together. This is because the skin on this part of your hands is much thinner and has fewer sebaceous glands, meaning it can become dry very quickly and needs the most moisture.
