Winter weather, late nights, dehydration and stress can all play havoc with our skin, and lead to a dull and unhealthy complexion.
Here, skincare expert Patricia Boland, from beauty brand Colorescience UK, shares her five favourite skincare saviours for winter.
Daily Replenish Moisturiser, £21.50, Bloom Remedies
Looking for a little TLC? Look to nature for a skincare boost.
Patricia said: “With natural botanicals and essential oils this light moisturiser is suitable for all skin types, replenishing goodness back into your skin.
“The neroli essential oil partners perfectly with balancing rose geranium and ho leaf to add balance, while benzoin and patchouli essential oils help to eliminate any signs of dryness.”
Petrowhat? Milk, £7, Deciem
Patricia said: “This super-saturated and long-wearing lip and skin balm is filled with a high concentration of amino acids in a plant-derived squalene and baobab oil base.
“It’s perfect for plumping up your lips and saves them from drying out.”
Total Eye Renewal Therapy, £49.50, Colorescience UK
Tired eyes? Look no further than this targeted cream, which improves the appearance of dark circles, puffiness and fine lines.
Patricia said: “While protecting the delicate eye area against photoaging, this product also has 100% SPF 35 mineral sunscreen to protect the skin from hidden sun rays in the winter sky.”
SkinClear Elixir, £24.95, Botanycl
“This plant-based supplement contains active botanicals, which have been shown to support skin gently and effectively,” explained Patricia.
“Promoting a clear and blemish-free complexion from within, the vegan capsules supplement your diet with natural ingredients, and are great for breakout-prone skin.”
Refining Mask, £39.50, Glo Skin Beauty
If you suffer from oily, shiny skin, Patricia advises using a refinding mask.
She said: “This product is an effective oil-absorbing clay mask, and great for removing impurities and dirt.
“The face mask helps to purify the skin, while refining texture, too. Formulated with sulphur for its healing, antibacterial, oil-balancing and cell-regenerating benefits, the mask also contains anti-microbial Tea Tree Oil for, anti-bacterial and astringent purposes.”
