Staying hydrated in colder months

For most of us, the winter cold can be quite damaging to our hair and skin. While adding a rosy glow to our cheeks, less welcome are the uncomfortable dryness to our face, hands, feet and hair, and we aren’t just talking about women, it can affect men just as much. Here are some excellent remedies.

Argan Beauty - Silky Lip Balm With the active ingredients of argan, sesame and almond oils and shea butter, this slightly rose scented lip balm will keep your lips smooth and soft throughout the winter months. Argan Beauty works directly with a small manufacturing center in Morocco to ensure that are exclusively pure and organic organ oil and fragrances are used.

Icy winds, a drop in temperature and the increased use of central heating can all have an impact on your skin and hair, leaving them feeling dull and lifeless. A boost in your winter skin and hair care can help to revitalise hair and skin, whilst protecting them from becoming dry and brittle.

Skin care doesn’t have to be considered a chore, neither does it need a cabinet full of products. To help you repair and protect hair and skin ready for the winter, we have compiled some easy remedies that can help you tackle those cold temperatures.

La Mer - The Revitalizing Rehydrating Serum - This powerful age  fighter accelerates skin's natural renewal process to visibly diminish lines and wrinkles. With the nutrient-rich Miracle BrothTM, skin is re ned and rejuvenated for a firmer, younger-looking complexion. This potent serum is also powered by the Regenerating FermentTM which help skin trigger its natural production of collagen, elastin and other "youth proteins." Skin looks revitalised on contact and, over time, even in winter, the appearance of lines, wrinkles and pores is dramatically diminished.

Stay Hydrated

Staying hydrated is important during any season, but during the winter drinking plenty of water is essential for our bodies to function, digest food and help flush toxins away. When our bodies are fully hydrated, our blood consists of approximately 92% water, therefore it helps to keep the blood moving freely through our veins and arteries. It is also vital to keep our skin soft and smooth and can even add a subtle healthy sheen to the skin.

REN Clean Skincare - Luxury Moroccan Rose Collection A luxurious selection from REN’s multi-award winning Moroccan Rose Otto range, this holiday collection will leave your skin soft, smooth and lightly scented with 100% natural rose oil.

Use a Scrub

It is always important to exfoliate all year round, however during the winter months, investing in a good exfoliater can help to remove dead skin, improve your complexion and improve new skin cells. When exfoliating, the rubbing action helps to boost circulation and helps drain your lymph nodes, by increasing blood flow to the skin’s surface.

Jo Malone will launch Myrrh & Tonka, a new unisex fragrance in the Cologne Intense Collection, in January. Myrrh & Tonka was developed by perfumer Mathilde Bijaoui, and features notes of myrrh, almond, lavender, vanilla and tonka bean. Jo Malone Myrrh & Tonka will be available in 100 ml Cologne Intense. It's a perfect winter scent.

Treat Your Tresses

No matter if you are male or female, during the winter our hair can become much more dry and flat. Especially for those who shampoo daily, you may want to consider reducing this to every other day so that you do not dry out your hair or scalp. Always use conditioner as this can help to protect hair as well as de-tangling. Try to leave hair to dry 50-60% before using a hair-dryer, as blow-drying hair straight from the shower can encourage breakage and dandruff.

Dior - La Cure - The three week luxurious treatment package from Dior Prestige is bound to change your skin. The Reset, Renew and Perfect anti- aging oil-serums, based on Dior’s exclusive formula using Rose de Granville Oil, improve the texture of the skin, reducing signs of aging, making your skin more firm and radiant through tough winter dryness.


Probably one of the most obvious remedies, but moisturising every day can help to hydrate skin, as well as protecting it from the winter cold. Focus especially on specific areas such as your hands and face as these will be most exposed to the bitter temperatures. Ensure you always use a moisturiser that targets your specific skin type, as well as one that contains an SPF. Even during the winter, an SPF is essential to protect the skin from premature ageing.
