Save or Splurge: Your winter skincare kit
Come winter, you need to be prepared with the right skin care products. Here are inexpensive and expensive options for lip balm, moisturisers and other essentials for the season.
You may be looking forward to the cool winds of winter – but they’re going to bring dry skin, chapped lips and cracked heels along with them. Is your skin ready to battle the dry weather? Here are a few must-have items in your skincare kit.
Suffering from dry, chapped lips? Pick up either of these moisturising lip balms to keep chapped winter lips at bay.
Lotus Herbals: Their range of lip balms is great for winter. They moisturise and smell delicious too! We especially love this raspberry one.
Givenchy: This is a luxury buy, but the multi-purpose balm, called Givenchy Hydra Sparkling Magic Lip & Cheek Balm, is worth it.
Even your feet suffer the brunt of winter dryness. Stock up on these foot creams.
FabIndia: The Herbal Heel Balm from FabIndia is perfect if you suffer from cracked, winter damaged soles.
L’Occitane: This dry skin foot cream is perfect, because it will help soothe the roughest heels.
A good quality but gentle face wash is a must during winter. Remember not to use it more than twice a day though!
Lakmé: The Fruit Blast Honey Glow face wash has intense moisturising properties and avocado extracts for healthy skin.
Clinique: Clinique’s Rinse-off Foaming Cleanser is a good addition to your winter skincare kit, as it’s gentle on the skin.
Make sure the lotion you buy is fragrance-free, so that your skin stays supple and hydrated through the winter months.
Vaseline: Vaseline’s Intensive Repair body lotion is made especially for dry skin and is a good budget buy for your skin’s winter needs.
Neutrogena: Nothing works better than this Soothing Wrap Body lotion. It’s fragrance-free and soothes dry, itchy skin during winter.
