Take 5: Winter Saviours


There are two types of products I reach for constantly throughout winter; ones that moisturise and ones that relax the body. The latter is super nice for those pamper nights in and the former for keeping your skin in check.

We'll start off with the body, and first and foremost I have to mention my go-to body wash of the moment, the Sanex Pro Hydrate Shower Cream. I'm not fussy when it comes to body wash, I just tend to get whatever is on offer, but in the winter I always look for ones that cater for dry skin, so, the fact this is labelled for 'very dry skin' makes me very happy. This is a super rich, nourishing cream which sinks in beautifully and leaves your skin feeling soft and supple. My legs especially get very dry, particularly after shaving, but this keeps them hydrated! It's really affordable and definitely a must have for winter.

If you love a good relaxing bath, and don't mind spending a few extra pennies on a bath oil, then the Clarins Relax Bath & Shower Concentrate is one for you. It has a very aromatic scent and really sends the mind and body to sleep which is helped by the camomile enriched throughout. Before bed this is such a treat and sets you up for a good bit of shut eye. I just squeeze a bit under the tap whilst my bath is running and let it work it's magic.

Another one from Clarins which is a saviour for the colder months is their Hand and Nail Treatment Cream. You can never go wrong with investing in a good hand cream, especially in the winter. My hands get really dry and my nails are always brittle so slathering them in this just helps to keep them nourished and presentable. It's a very rich cream which sinks in beautifully and is perfect for an at home manicure.

I have two skincare items to talk about, one for the day and one for the night. The former is the Kiehls Daily Reviving Concrete which helps to wake up and nourish the skin. My skin always looks so dull in the winter so I add in a few products to help combat that, this does a fab job. Just a few drops into the palms of your hands then press it into the skin and you'll find you're instantly having a good skin day. If you have dry/dull skin, I would highly recommend giving this a go. My night option is the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask which has the nicest smell in the world. I use this every now and again as the last step in my skincare routine to help nourish my skin and leave it fresh and hydrated by the morning, you can always pop this on in the morning too if you have an event that night. I'm fairly liberal with this stuff, which could be down to the smell, but it feels amazing on the skin.
