Winter is coming with cold biting winds and dry indoor heating, causing all sorts of mayhem such as chapped lips and scaly skin. Protect your skin against dryness and irritation with the following skincare tips.

If you suffer from flaky skin in the winter, you can try a cult favorite face scrub, St. Ives Invigorating Apricot Scrub. For those with sensitive skin, a more gentle scrub would be Lush Cosmetics’ Let The Good Times Roll.

For the mask lovers out there, try the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. This product is very hydrating, leaves the skin feeling supple and even smells like apricots!

If you would like to get into the facial oil trend, try rosehip seed oil, which is full of antioxidants and essential fatty acids. This product is known for hydrating dry skin, correcting dark spots, reducing scars and diminishing fine lines. Rose hip seed oil caught the eye of the beauty world when Aussie supermodel Miranda Kerr confessed to using this oil on her skin every night. It is recommended to use rosehip seed oil on top of your regular moisturizer or in place of it.

To fight against chapped lips, try using a sugary lip scrub followed by a heavy-duty balm.

Hand Creams & Scrubs
Hands are often overlooked when it comes to skincare routines but they battle the elements just as much as your face does! Protect your hands with a hand scrub and a hand cream. I highly recommend the Hand Chemistry Intense Youth Complex Hand Cream. This hand cream is non-greasy and absorbs quickly. It is Boots UK’s no. 1 best-selling hand cream for a reason.
