It's highly im­por­tant to find a re­plen­ish­ing cleanser that will not strip mois­ture from the skin and leaves its nat­u­ral bar­rier in­tact. An oil or cream cleanser is the best choice for this time of the year. Try Ed­i­ble Beauty No. 1 Belle Frais Cleans­ing Milk,

found at ed­i­ble­beautyaus­tralia. com, or Max& Me Pu­rity And Grace, found at maxandme. at/ en/ shop.

Find­ing a nour­ish­ing mois­tur­izer that pro­tects the skin from fur­ther mois­ture loss is es­sen­tial. If your skin is red, re­ac­tive and very sen­si­tive, it's des­per­ately in need of in­stant calm­ing ac­tion. My go- to prod­ucts are Zk'in Re­lief Mois­tur

izer, found at zki­nor­gan­ics. com. au and Max& Me Sweet Seren­ity/ Beauty Balm. I rec­om­mend a very rich, balmy mois­tur­izer at night, you can even ap­ply it as a mask in a thick layer when watch­ing a movie or read­ing at home. Coco Bliss In­ten­sive Re

pair by Ed­i­ble Beauty is the per­fect night treat­ment for dry win­ter skin, with nour­ish­ing oils and balms, it leaves the skin per­fectly hy­drated.

It is al­ways im­por­tant to ex­fo­li­ate reg­u­larly. Once a week is suf­fi­cient and you will want to find a very gen­tle ex­fo­liant. Stay away from any­thing con­tain­ing mi­crobeads, which are tiny round plas­tic beads, of­ten blue or pink in col­ors, that are present in many main­stream and lux­ury skin­care brands. They are in­cred­i­bly dan­ger­ous to ma­rine life and birds and they pose a huge en­vi­ron­men­tal haz­ard. Use nat­u­ral ex­fo­liants in­stead. A great choice for dr y win­ter skin is Ed­i­ble Beauty & Desert Lime Flaw­less Mi­cro- Ex­fo­liant. When it comes to com­bat­ing dry skin, you can't for­get about nour­ish­ing oils. They can be used alone or they can be mixed with your daily mois­tur­izer to give your skin an extra hit of nour­ish­ment. Give Ed­i­ble Beauty & Ex­otic Seed of Youth - Anti- Age­ing Oil a go. Max& Me En­chanted is an­other won­der­fully calm­ing oil t hat i s per­fect for win­ter.

Last but not least, your lips will re­quire some extra pro­tec­tion when tem­per­a­tures dip. My fa­vorite ve­gan lip balms for win­ter are the Hur­raw

balms found at hur­raw­balm. com, they are great on the go, and easy to keep in your pocket or bag. Keep a jar of a rich, multi- pur­pose balm at home, it can be an al­most in­stant re­pair for dry, flakey skin.

Ere Perez Pa­paya SOS Mar­malade,

found at ereperez. com, is a great ve­gan choice.

With just a few lit­tle ad­just­ments to your rou­tine, you can keep your skin happy, healthy and glow­ing even in the harsh­est season. All th­ese tips are toxin- free and ve­gan! ◆
