Winter Skin Saviours

Although I always anticipate having dehydrated skin in the Winter season, the way my complexion is feeling and looking at the moment is probably the worst it's been. It's not just my face, but my whole body, from head to toe, feels dehydrated and chapped from the various Winter elements, so I wanted to share some of my hydration favourites. 

I tend to neglect my body all year around, despite my love for having lotions and potions around the house, but I've still got my favourites that I reach for often. The Glossier Body Hero Oil Wash is a must of mine as it helps with my dry skin without getting it irritated, plus it lightly scents my skin beautifully. For an extra boost of hydration outside the shower, I like to slather on Lush Sleepy, as the lavender scent helps me drift off quicker and the array of moisturising ingredients keeps my skin looking in tip-top condition. 

For my nails and hands, I like to treat them using the Lush Lemony Flutter as it can be massaged into the cuticles or any intensely dry patches. To finish, I apply the Aesop Resurrection Hand Balm* as it smells delicious and makes my hands super soft. 

Masks are one of my favourite ways to inject some hydration into my skin and there's so many on my list that I reach for. I'm very glad to have the Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask back in my skincare routine as it's a long-time favourite of mine. The Glow Recipe Watermelon pick is another one I really rate too.  

Before applying my moisturiser, I like to go in with the Pixi Skin Caviar Essence* as it gives a lovely feeling to my skin and makes it feel softer, look smoother and appear more radiant too - A triple whammy! 

For my face, I've been using various moisturisers depending on the level of dehydration I have. The Farmacy Honey Drop* offering is great for underneath makeup as it's lightweight, but still delivers enough hydration. The Fresh Rose Moisturiser* and Glossier PMR pick are two of my favourites for the evening. They are thicker in texture, meaning they're great for overnight treatments which makes my lacklustre complexion look radiant and hydrated. Not that I need anymore moisturisers in this line up, but the The Ordinary Natural Moisturising Factors* is one of my favourite budget options as it's simple, yet effective. 

What are your favourite Winter picks?
