Skin Care
A we look to get into colder weather over the next few weeks, it's a good time to take a look at your skin care routine.

I always notice through winter my skin starts to behave differently. With less humidity in the air, there is less moisture and add to that hotter showers, baths and central heating, you may start to notice your skin becoming dryer and may even be flaky in areas. Just as we change our clothes for the new season, we should also change our skincare!

In the summer months I tend to use lighter products, but in the winter it's important to switch to richer more nourishing products especially for the colder months like January. Start by using a gentle cleanser that won't strip your skin, I love the Simple Kind to Skin Moisturising Face Wash (£3.49, Boots) as it gently cleanses, moisturises and improves skin condition, great for sensitive skin types.

Hyaluronic Acid works as a moisture magnet and can lock in up to 1000 times its own weight in moisture; for best results apply underneath moisturiser. The Eucerin Hyaluron (£26, Boots) will really plump up skin and helps reduce fine wrinkles whilst hydrating your skin.

Night serums are a great way to keep your skin packed full of moisture. The Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair (£53, House of Fraser) leaves your skin looking and feeling radiant. Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion (£5.33, Boots) is also packed full of shea butter and works wonders on dry legs.

Crème de la Mer Moisturising Cream (£115, John Lewis) is the ultimate winter moisturiser, it has the ability to transform your skin in a very short time whilst leaving a dewy finish.

Kiehls Creamy Eye Treatment (£34, Kiehls) with avocado is like a superfood for under the eyes, its light enough to sit under makeup and doesn't migrate into your eyes.

Don't forget your lips. I try to avoid using lip balms that contain alcohol as I find this dehydrates my lips and becomes addictive. Instead try using Papaya Gold Paw Paw Moisturisng Balm, this can also be mixed with your favourite lipstick to create a tinted gloss.
