Dull complexion, dry patches or even flaking - does this sound like the current state of your skin? Dehydration is your worst enemy when winter rolls in so it's important to compensate, even over-compensate, with as much moisture as possible.
Apply a hydrating mask, like Bobbi Brown's Skin Nourish Masque, R865, with coral grass and green algae to intensely quench the skin.
Multi-purpose products are always a must to have in your kit and winter is no exception. Include a hydrating balm that you can use on chapped lips, dry cuticles or any dry skin area to quickly moisturise and protect skin.
Dr Paw Paw's Multipurpose Soothing Balm Tinted Peach Pink, R95, is extra special with its tinted peachy formula to add a bit of colour and glow to the skin and lips.3. THE PRIMER
There is no such thing as being overprepared when it comes to skincare so give your skin all the help that it can handle. Ensure that your complexion looks radiant and glowing by using skincare products that have a brightening formula, especially in winter - from your primer to your foundation. Try Clarins SOS Primer in 04 Lavender, R400
Don't let your lips take a beating when the temperature drops, stock up on lip-care products that will remove dry skin and nourish lips for a softer, plump appearance.
The Switchbeauty Primetime Kit, R150, contains an exfoliating gel that gently removes any dry skin, as well as priming balm to create a smooth, even surface before applying any lip product.
