While we usually associate winter with dry skin, chapped lips and hair that turns dry, would you believe us if we told you those days are over? Keeping up with your skincare regimen in the wintertime is crucial, but its important to remember to use brands and products that offer the nourishing benefits of soothing ingredients, as opposed to those that can potentially tear even more moisture from your skin. In addition to proper skin care, doing things like taking quicker and less hot showers plus drinking water can help keep your skin looking and feeling hydrated, as well.
We’ve come up with a list of some must-haves to add into your beauty shelf this winter to make sure your skin is radiant even on the chilliest days. Here are some of our favourites:
