For many people, the cold clear days of winter bring more than just a rosy glow to the cheeks. They also bring uncomfortable dryness to the skin. You may have found a moisturiser that works just fine in spring and summer, but as weather conditions change, so should your skin care routine. Here are some tips to help you to beat the harsh dryness winter can bring to your skin:
- Find a facial moisturiser that’s oil-based, rather than water-based, as the oil will create a protective layer on the skin to retain more moisture. Many night creams are oil-based so this can be a good place to start. But choose your oils with care because not all oils are appropriate for the face. Instead, look for nonclogging light oils, like grapeseed oil.
- Body scrubs & facial exfoliants are a must during the winter season. Not only are they great for removing the layers of dead skin our body builds up, but it also preps your skin to allow it to absorb the moisturiser faster & deeper. Try to use a scrub once to twice a week & definitely apply moisturiser after doing so.
- Finding your hands are also feeling the bite of winter dryness? The skin on your hands is thinner than on most parts of the body and has fewer oil glands. That means it’s harder to keep your hands moist, especially in cold, dry weather. This can lead to itchiness and cracking. To protect your hands from the harsh winter weather, wear gloves when you go outside & apply moisturiser regularly.
- Apply moisturiser to the skin after showering & before going to bed. Your skin will benefit greatly from doing these two. When we shower we lose natural oils from the hot water & our skin tends to dry out. So moisturising after a shower will replace those lost oils & will help keep your skin hydrated. When we moisturise before going to bed it will benefit your skin in a massive way. As we sleep our body is more relaxed & can allow the skin to absorb the moisturiser better.
- If your facial skin is uncomfortably dry, avoid using harsh peels, masks, and alcohol-based toners, all of which can strip vital oil from your skin. Instead, find a cleansing milk or mild foaming cleanser, a toner with no alcohol, and masks that are deeply hydrating rather than clay-based, which tends to draw moisture out of the face.

Exfoliating our skin on a weekly basis is a must. Our skin does have a natural shredding process, but sometimes, depending on our skin type, we need to help the process along. This is especially important when it comes to waxing & shaving.
The reason why exfoliating in-between our waxing/shaving routine is so important, is because this will help to prevent or minimize ingrown hairs.
Ingrown hairs appear when the hair curls back or grows sideways into the skin. This can occur due to the type of hair you may have (eg curly or coarse hair) or a build up of sebum (oil) in the hair follicle.
Regular exfoliation will buff away dead skin cells & avoid clogged pores which can cause the hair to become ingrown. Exfoliating once or twice a week is all you need to keep those ingrown hairs under control. And don’t forget, keeping your skin hydrated is also very important, so make sure you apply moisturiser every day.

I’m sure a lot of you probably have never thought about getting a body scrub before, either because you may not see the point or didn’t even know they were a treatment! A body scrub is one of the most beneficial treatments you can give your skin & I’m going to list a few reasons why you should be treating yourself more often with this lovely spa treatment! This is by far my most favourite treatment so totally recommend you get one (or two lol)!
Firstly, let’s look at what a body scrub is. For those that have never had this treatment before, it involves a body scrub product either salt, sugar, coffee granuels, coconut, usually anything simular that can act as a good exfoliant (but not too abrasive), mixed with oil & then applied to the skin with water using vigorous circular motions. Sponges & hot towels are used to remove the scrub, then the treatment is finished off with a massage using a hydrating moisturiser. A body scrub’s primary function is to remove dead skin cells from the body as well as cleanse the skin & increase blood circulation. Sometimes these scrubs can be referred to as a body exfoliant, body gloss or body polish.
Now the benefits! Besides making your skin feel absolutely wonderful, here is a list of things that help benefit your skin & body:
- Removes dead skin cells
- Cleanses the skin, leaving it feeling smoother
- Increases blood circulation
- Helps reduce the appearance of dark spots or age spots
- Minimizes the appearance of pores
- Helps to eliminate breakouts on your body
- Helps to eliminate dry skin
- Allows your skin to take in moisture better as it can penetrate more deeper
- Helps to prevent in-grown hairs & makes hair removal easier
- Helps to reduce stress
- Perfect to have during the winter months as our skin is dryer & will help restore moisture back into the skin
So there you go! Not a bad list of reasons for why you should make your next booking a body scrub treatment!
