Don’t let winter leave you feeling dull; arm yourself with the ultimate survival kit designed to keep your skin radiant and hydrated.
1 DRINK UP
Dull complexion, dry patches or even flaking — does this sound like the current state of your skin? Dehydration is your worst enemy when winter rolls in so it’s important to compensate, even overcompensate, with as much moisture as possible. Apply a hydrating mask like this one from Bobbi Brown with coral grass and green algae to intensely quench the skin.

2 The everything balm
Multi-purpose products are always a must to have in your kit and winter is no exception. Include a hydrating balm that you can use on chapped lips, dry cuticles or any dry skin area to quickly moisturise and protect skin. This one is extra special with its tinted peachy formula to add a bit of colour and glow to the skin and lips.

3 Bright side
There is no such thing as being overprepared when it comes to skincare so give your skin all the help that it can handle. Ensure that your complexion looks radiant and glowing by using skincare products that have a brightening formula, especially in winter — from your primer to your foundation.

Don’t let your lips take a beating when the temperature drops, stock up on lip-care products that will remove dry skin and nourish lips for a softer, plump appearance. This priming kit contains an exfoliating gel that gently removes any dry skin, as well as priming balm to create a smooth, even surface before applying any lip product.
