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.
