Beauty Kit: Winter Essentials

With so much rain recently, I'm surprised to see just how dry my skin and lips are if I'm not using my products daily.  Looking after your skin in winter is just as important than the summer time.

Here are my top three favourite products that are helping fight the battle this winter…

I'm so in love with Elizabeth Arden - Eight Hour Skin Protectant.  I take this everywhere with me.  I use it daily on my lips to protect from the harsh ailments of the weather, but you can use for lots of other things, like taming your eyebrows!  I usually pick mine up on Duty Free, but all good department stores will have it.

Top tip - in the summer when you may accidentally burn your nose or ears, put this on before going to bed and then in the morning it's so much calmer and far less red!








Another favourite of mine is from the ARK skincare range - and it's their Anti-Ageing Skin Protector SPF 30 Primer.

I know this product is working on me, as I have freckles on my checks and nose, and when the sun is out so are my freckles!!  Since using this product my freckles are minimised and it acts as a supportive base to apply my tinted moisturiser or foundation too, which allows it to last a lot longer.

Put it this way, I know when I'm not wearing it!!  £36 from ARK Skincare





And finally, for your hair, Moroccan Oil - this one is not a protector but it adds moisture back into your hair.  There is a lighter version for people who have fine hair - this product is helping my hair fight the battle of looking tired and dry - again, I know when I'm not using it!

Just add a drop to your hair before adding your styling products - it leaves your hair soft and moisturised - great for mid to long hair!  I purchased mine via my hair salon - check yours on your next visit.
