Skincare: combat the cold  

Winter's bite can leave our skin barrier feeling strained. So, in the face of cold weather, opting for gentle skincare products is key. While heavy moisturisers and winter serums might seem appealing, sometimes strategically layering targeted products can be more effective for both your skin and your budget. Keep it simple with essentials like a gentle exfoliant, cleanser, targeted serum, and light moisturiser. Look for products with ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycerin to lock in moisture and maintain suppleness, while serums and oils rich in antioxidants such as jojoba or rosehip work wonders in repairing the skin's barrier. Don't forget to keep those lips soft with a quality lip balm – we're currently loving the Swipe It Moisturising Lip Balm from The Body Shop. 


Makeup: winter glow up 

In the brisk winter months, who has time for an elaborate makeup routine? Swap out heavy foundations for lightweight tinted moisturisers that provide coverage while keeping your skin hydrated and radiant throughout the day. Combat dull winter skin with a cream blush to deliver a natural flush to your cheekswe’re loving the MCoBeauty Cheek and Lip Tint from Big W. Finally, set your makeup and refresh your complexion with a hydrating setting spray, formulated with ingredients like aloe vera or cucumber extract for an extra burst of moisture. 


Tools: beauty helpers you need 

No winter beauty list is complete without a few trusty tools. First up, use a humidifier or facial steamer to tackle dry indoor air and alleviate skin dryness and congestion. You can find one at Kmart for just $29. Be sure to treat yourself to an at-home spa experience with a jade roller, perfect for reducing puffiness and inflammation, while promoting lymphatic drainage and enhancing product absorption. For the ultimate beauty sleep, purchase a silk pillowcase. Its moisture-retaining properties and friction-prevention will leave your skin feeling pampered and refreshed each morning.
