How to revive your skin this winter

As the temperature drops, wind kicks in and heater goes on, our skin goes through the winter ride leading to discomfort and dryness, and in worst cases to parched skin, flaky spots and chapped extremities.

As we adjust our wardrobe to puffy jackets and scarves, it is time to adjust our beauty routine too. 

Discover our favorite products to brace the chilly months.

Weleda Skin Food 

Described as a thick moisturiser, this all-natural product free of paraben, artificial preservative, fragrance and vegan is THE SOS product for all the winter woes. 

A little goes a long way and it is perfect for chapped lips, flaky hands and cracked skin on elbows, knees, feet, etc. Also great to soothe eczema or rosacea flare-ups.

Our favourite tips:

  • As a primer or illuminator under foundation for a glowing skin
  • As an all over body moisturiser, particularly great to use the night before tanning to avoid any disgraceful marks
  •  As an intensive hand or foot treatment: apply a generous amount before bed and cover with gloves/socks

Embryolisse Filaderme Cream

Designed to visibly reduce the signs of ageing, Filaderme Cream targets fine lines and wrinkles as well as loss of firmness while hydrating the skin for a youthful and radiant complexion. Shea butter and botanical squalane help improve skin elasticity banishing dry flaky skin.

Why is it so good?

  •  The rich creamy texture is very pleasurable to use
  •  You only need a tiny bit at the time, that jar goes forever
  • It can be used overnight as an hydrating face mask 

Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm 

An ultra-nourishing lip balm containing the goodness of Honey and Vitamin E and other precious oils. It repairs, soothes and protects dry or chapped lips. Thanks to its unique texture and subtle taste of refreshing grapefruit, it really is a beauty must-have. Its rich texture melts into the lips to moisturise even the driest and damaged lips.

Why we love it?

  • For its creamy matte texture: even men can wear it without looking like they have applied glossy lipstick
  • This little jar literally lasts for months 
  • It can even be used on cuticles or dry patches

Cattier Yellow Clay Mask

The Cattier yellow clay facial mask contains a perfect blend of French yellow and white clay to gently nourish dry, fragile skins. Enriched with jojoba oil to moisturise and protect, peppermint for its refreshing, antiseptic and stimulating properties, and with essential oil of geranium; it softens, soothes and nourishes the skin at the same time as detoxifying and clarifying the skin.

Its key benefits:

  • Fragrance-free and natural formula
  • Vegan and certified organic
  • Can be used in the shower while applying your shampoo or hair mask! A real time saver!

Caudalie Vinosource Overnight Oil

The antidote for dry skin! 100% natural, this recovery oil is packed with a concentrated blend of plants and essential oils to repair the skin barrier and soothe sensitive skin whilst you sleep. Grape seed oil and Sesame seed oil protect the skin cells against ageing while Jojoba oil soothes sensitivity and reduces redness. Rose essential oil and Rosemary essential oil provide anti-bacterial properties and balance.

What we love:

  • The non-greasy "dry-oil" texture is quickly absorbed 
  • The drop applicator allows it to be mixed with any moisturiser
  • Versatile, it can be used on all skin types, even on oily to combination skin
