Winter Skincare That Works : WIN a Beauty Hamper

Our skincare regime may need to change with the seasons especially going from hot to colder weather. Indoor heating and cool outside temperatures can play havoc with our skin. So here are some suggestions for winter skincare that works from cleansing to pampering.


Whilst diet plays a role in keeping your skin healthy, cleansing your skin daily is very necessary. Use a cleanser that will not strip your skin of it’s natural oils and one that is suited to your skin type – from very dry to oily.

Rated highly by users is the Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Exfoliant with 12% Glycolic Acid. ($43.00). It’s granulated formula dislodges dead skin cells and oil from pores. It’s a deep cleanser, exfoliant, polish and mask in one bottle. Genius.

If you have oily or problem-prone skin, then MD Formulations Facial Cleanser Gel for Oily Skin ($85.00) is perfect for you. A healthier more radiant complexion will replace problem and acne-prone skin.

Formulated with aloe vera and white tea, asap gentle cleansing gel ($29.00) is a soap-free cleanser for removing makeup without disturbing the skins natural moisture balance.


I am a big fan of exfoliating my skin, both face and body, so make this a weekly or twice-weekly part of your skincare regime. Modern facial exfoliates are gentle on the skin yet produce amazing results. Dead skin is replaced with a radiant new complexion and skin should feel smoother and more refreshed. You might prefer to use an exfoliating brush, such as the one produced by Dermalogica ($24.50), or a product with in-built exfoliating properties.

The Elemis Gentle Rose Exfoliator ($48.00) can be used everyday and is excellent for mature skin as it contains Hydrating Absolute of Moroccan Rose, cucumber to soothe and jojoba beads leaving skin silky. Another highly recommended product is Skinstitut Glycolic Scrub 14% ($45) with users saying they wouldn’t be without it. Designed to deep clean pores and exfoliate skin, follicles are opened to remove debris and glycolic acid loosens the glue-like substance that holds layers if dead skin together. Reveal brighter, healthier skin by exfoliating regularly.


It’s not just dry skin that needs moisturising, oily skin needs moisture too. As not all skin is created equal, choose a moisturizer that is suitable for your skin – very dry, normal, combination, oily, young, mature.

Hope in a Jar ($50.00) – the name says it all, right? This award-winning, lightweight moisturiser hydrates and provides antioxidant protection. Originally created for the medical market, it’s as light as a soufflé. For those with oily skin, try the Cellex-C Sea Silk Oil-Free Moisturiser ($79.00) that contains enriching sea botanicals and vegetable protein. As soft as sea foam you’ll have a velvety complexion as it soften and smooth’s the skin.

Excellent for mature skin or skin that is recovering from chemical peels or laser resurfacing, MD Formulations Critical Care Shielding Crème ($147.76) is a rich, antioxidant serum.


There’s nothing more pampering than a long, warm bath and then smothering tired and dry skin in a veil of rich moisture. Even the name AHAVA Caressing Body Sorbet ($35.00) sounds relaxing. Packed with relaxing minerals and hydrating botanical extracts, this body lotion is perfect for after-bath rituals. Or a rich, citrus-scented body butter for drenching dry skin; the Bliss Lemon and Sage Body Butter ($29.95) has antioxidant vitamins A & E, a powerful moisture magnet in sodium hyaluronate, and arnica extract.

With natural hydroxy acids from sugar cane and apple extracts plus lactic acid, your skin will be smooth and hydrated with Dermalogica’s Body Hydrating Cream ($42.00). This luscious potion also contains essential oils of lavender, patchouli and orange, plus Japanese green tea extracts, purifying lemongrass oil and toning rosemary oil to revitalize your skin.
