MOISTURE RICH SKIN CARE FOR LUSCIOUS WINTER SKIN
There’s no secret to that rosy winter glow – it’s all about keeping skin hydrated and moisturised in the chill winter air, and from striding the city streets to snowboarding the heights the same rules apply!
STEP 1 – STOP STRIPPING YOUR SKIN!
We’re all about clean fresh skin, but during winter it’s best to stop frequent use of facial scrubs and clay-based masques which can be more drying – and no facial spritzers (they evaporate, cooling and drying the skin).
Winter time means moisturising toners and oil cleansers are in! Try the alcohol free Plantae Organic Wild Thyme or Skin Juice Bio-Juice for non-drying toners and the faithful favourite Tailor Oil Cleanse for instant moisture rich cleansing and makeup removal that doesn’t damage your skin’s protective acid mantle.
STEP 2 – NATURAL FACIAL OILS & SERUMS
Night time is the right time for intensive serums, facial oils and deep moisturising.
Try Rayna Skincare’s night-time facial oil with stem cells, lipid oils and granactive retinol for a bio-available source of Vitamin A. Skin Juice’s Superfood Face Oil has 21 awesome natural skin nurturing ingredients while Yuki-Yo’s Natural Facial Nectar contains olive squalenes and a line up of incredible natural oils for skin quenching goodness.
For a lower cost dose of intensive moisture Acure’s Marula Oil delivers omega fatty acids and proteins, and the Herb farm’s Intensive Face Oil has all the classic skin soothing beauties (rose, calendula, sweet almond, tamanu and lavender).

STEP 3 – ADD MOISTURE RICH NATURAL FACE CREAMS
Wait one minute before applying a deeply moisturising night cream and let the skin’s natural rejuvenation processes work to their best potential while you sleep.
These options from Ere Perez, Plantae and Black Chicken are rich in goodness and moisture-packed for resilient rejuvenated skin.
STEP 4 – DAILY PROTECTION
Daily moisturisers need to deliver the goods in winter, so look for nourishing essential oils and good antioxidants – and then add protective layers, especially on the lips and cheeks.
Natural moisturisers that tick the box for moisture intensive goodness include Tailor Skincare’s Renew serum, Plantae’s Rich Fruit Day Cream and Ethique’s Perfector waste free beauty bar.
We love the rich moisture and lush colours of Luk Beautifood natural lipsticks for nourishing lip colour, and tinted Hurraw Lip Balms are always a hit.
For cheeks Tailor Skincare’s Glow Pots are a unique way to add a glowing tint of colour, while adding a naturally moisturising protective layer – creating the ultimate beauty barrier for your skin.
