It’s normal for our skin to become itchy, dry and red during winter as it dehydrates due to fluctuating, cool temperatures. This is why it’s crucial to nurture and nourish your skin by mixing up your skincare routine to ensure that it’s getting the hydration it needs. Here are our go-to winter essentials that are sure to leave your skin feeling soft and smooth for the much-anticipated warmer weather.
1. Mukti Marigold Hydrating Creme
This luxuriously rich and deeply moisturising treatment is perfect for soothing and hydrating dry skin. Infused with native extracts of Kakadu Plum, Cornflower and Willowbark to promote elasticity, along with Calendula flowers, Vitamin E and Roman Chamomile to calm redness and irritation. This versatile reparative treatment can also be used as an overnight treatment, or as hand and body cream.
2. Edible Beauty No. 4 Vanilla Silk Hydrating Lotion
The perfect winter moisturiser that’s silky and lightweight, but filled with all the AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) and antioxidants that your skin needs to stay firm and hydrated during the cooler months. The key ingredient is Australian Rosella Extract, known as the ‘botox’ plant which enhances your skin’s natural cell turnover to encourage fresher and younger looking skin.
