Banish winter dry skin
The arrival of the cold weather is not only disappointing to the herds of disgruntled workers returning to their jobs, it's also a complete pain to our skin.
Many of you may laugh at the stereotype of cutesy rosy cheeks in the cold - the winter reality is, of course, far more disappointing - plaguing many of us women with dry, patchy skin.
There's no need to opt for harsh, chemical-filled moisturisers to alleviate the problem. There are many natural, homeopathic remedies that promise to alleviate troublesome winter skin.
So long, soap
Dr Helen Robertshaw, expert dermatologist, warns of the drying out effect that a regular soap can have.
"If the skin is dry, it is best to avoid all soaps as these tend to dry the skin more and instead use a moisturising soap substitute", she said.
It is important that you invest in a herbal body wash, as they are known for their calming properties, helping to alleviate dryness, while keeping the skin super hydrated.
As always, drinking plenty of water is vital in maintaining supple and healthy skin.
Dry skin is down to dehydration, so it's of paramount importance that you keep your skin as hydrated as possible. Some skin experts recommend between six and eight glasses of water a day.
Lather on the moisturiser
With much less skin on show in the winter, it can be easy to neglect the rest of your body.
However, legs, arms, and everything else that is now covered with masses of material still needs just as much TLC in the winter.
Look for a lotion that can be used all over the body - this will save you time and money when it comes to picking a winter moisturiser.
Lipbalm is vital
Winter can be murder on your lips, causing cracks and soreness. As well as being uncomfortable, poorly lips don't look as appealing. Fushi's lipbalm contains mint and shea butter - a combination that quenches parched lips and leaves your mouth soft, well-nourished and kissable.
