Winter Skincare Recommendations

Winter Skincare Recommendations

I’ll be honest, I don’t do a lot of skincare. This is a bad thing, I know, but water and soap was always fine with me until recently. London does some really rubbish things to your skin so recently I’ve been taking care of it a bit more.

So, for the last 12 months I’ve been trying to go zero waste. But, by Spring this was pretty much impossible for me. As such, a lot of these products are not zero waste.

Clarins Gentle Exfoliator – Brightening Toner

I love going to the spa with my mum, we’re each other’s spa buddies. At our local spot they have an amazing Clarin’s section and we know the Clarin’s ladies by name. They gave me a free facial once and this toner was amazing. It doesn’t include the sandy bits so it’s really gentle on my skin which I appreciate, particularly with regards to winter skincare.

Clarins Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser

Another product I discovered at the spa, but this cleanser smells amazing. It’s great for refreshing my face in the morning, particularly if I’ve had a night out or being heavy make-up the day before.

ESPA Skin Rescue Wonderbalm

This Wonderbalm can be used on face and lips and it’s really nourishing for your skin after a day in the sun, or a trip on the underground. Pollution can really make your skin dry so I like to use this before I go to sleep. If you’re looking to try one thing to create a winter skincare routine I would recommend this.

Origins Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer

I use this moisturiser in the morning – when I remember – it smells like oranges and comes in a gel format so it’s not greasy on my fingers. Good for a morning boost after a late night.

REN Global Protection Day Cream

This cream is perfect for skin subject to polluted air, such as Londoners. It’s great for calming any redness you may get in the cold weather as well as rejuvenating dry skin.

LUSH Mask of Magnaminty

This Face and Body mask is amazing! Not only does it smell fantastic it’s also really good for people who get the occasional break-out or oily skin. I use it about once a week for a little treat and it does exactly what it says on the tin – or pot, as the case may be.
