During the cold winter months, dry indoor heating, steamy hot showers and piercing blasting winds, skin and hair certainly take a beating. The real battle in winter versus summer is skin becoming very dry and loosing its luster. 

So, as we bid farewell to the season of sweat, it is time to put aside oil-fighting cleansers and toners in favour of hydration boosting, brightening and exfoliating products.

From super rich moisturisers to lip balms and hair treatments, shop the very best Winter Beauty Essentials below!

CosMedix Defy Age Management Exfoliator

The calming, all natural, exfoliator, invigorates and regenerates, damaged and dehydrated skin . It imparts nourishment and delivers a youthful luminosity to tired, dried skin.

Besides, consider going gentle with your skincare and tweaking your routine accordingly.

1. Avoid hot showers. Wash your face and body in lukewarm water instead of hot water. Hot water can dry out the skin even more, something you want to avoid when skin is already dry from winter weather.

2. Avoid soap in cold weather. Use a gentle facial wash. Soap is alkaline and will strip the skin barrier which is the first defence against harsh conditions.

3. Take extra care over your face. Gently blot your skin with a towel after washing and immediately apply a facial moisturiser afterwards to trap important moisture into the skin.

4. Using products with natural ingredients that are easily tolerated, like witch hazel, is important when it comes to blemish-prone skin. Many topical treatments for problem skin can actually dry out skin further, particularly in harsh winter conditions.

5. The skin reflects our general health and stress can flare many skin conditions including acne. During busy times, like party season, it is very important to eat a healthy diet, drink lots of water, exercise and follow a good skincare regime. This will definitely help to reduce skin flare-ups.

So, love your skin over the cold winter months, and yes, just as you update your wardrobe from summer to winter, so you must update your beauty and skincare routine to meet the needs of winter skin.
Stay warm and beautiful.
