Winter has taken a turn for the worse, taking our beauty regime with it. Now faced with frizzy hair, dry hands, chapped lips and a case of the sniffles, we’re overhauling our handbags with an arctic-proof arsenal of products…
Davines Oi Hand Balm £11.90
Containing Roucou oil, this smells of indulgent exotic extracts but it isn’t greasy or dense. In fact, despite being called a balm, it feels like a lightweight cream.
Aduna Baobab Superfruit Powder Sachet, £23 for 30 sachets
A souped up version of Berocca, Baobab has six times more vitamin C than your average orange and more antioxidants than your basic bluberry so it packs a serious immune-boosting punch. Sprinkled into a smoothie or on your porridge.
Bobbi Brown Skin Nourish Moisture Mask £33 (launches Jan 21st)
From freezing outdoor conditions to indoor central heating, constant climate change plays havoc with complexions. Putting back in what winter takes out (all the moisture!), this is like a blanket for dehydrated skin.
Superdrug Anti-Frizz Hair Treatment Mask, £1.29
Cold weather dries out hair, leaving it frazzled and badly behaved. Containing Argan Oil, this leaves hair immediately smoother while the papaya scent is fruity and fresh.
Rahua Volume Dry Shampoo, £30
Perfect for handbags, this mini bottle is aerosol free so you won’t get dirty looks if you whisk it out at your desk or on public transport. An instant refresher that’s perfect if you’re struggling leaving behind your warm, cosy bed. Who isn’t?
Origins Ginger Soufflè Whipped Body Cream, £28
This ginger scented cream is like a warming hug for your skin. It’s super light too, sinking in straight away so you don’t need to worry about doing a goosebump dance around your room before dressing.
Neom Organics Burst Of Energy Boosting On The Go Mist, £8
Blended with 17 essential oils including grapefruit, lemon and rosemary, this perks up a gloomy mood with an energising boost. Just spritz into the air above you and walk into the mist for a feel-good feeling.
