winter skincare essentials

winter skincare essentials


The dry air that comes with the cold winter chill and the increased used of radiators makes winter the worse season for your skin! So we've put together a list of our favourite products for the winter time to ensure that your skin stays hydrated!

We absolutely adore The Body Shop Body Butters to moisturise our skin with during the winter time. There are different body butters available depending on your skin type and they have great range of scents to. Our favourites are the shea butter and the brazil nut. These are particularly good if you have dry skin.

Top Tip: Moisturise your skin two times a day, morning and night! 



It is essential to regularly ex-foliate your skin to remove any dead skin cells and leave skin looking radiant and smooth. Soap & Glory body scrubs are ideal, they smell absolutely awesome, good enough to eat! AS well as leaving your skin feeling silky smooth.

Top Tip: Remember to moisturise your skin after ex-foliating to keep it hydrated. 

We love this shea butter handcream. Your hands feel completely nourished after applying it. What's more you don't have that greasy hand feeling. Shea butter is a great ingredient to moisturise and sooth skin. Both of us have quite dry skin, so we love products with shea butter.

Top Tip: Keep a small tube of hand cream in your bag and regularly apply throughout the day, especially after hand washing!  

Feet tend to have a hard time throughout the year, but come winter feet tend to get forgotten. We love the soap and glory heel genius to keep our feet nice and soft during the winter time. This cream is a weird blue colour and smells quite herbal and medical, so if you don't like those types of smells then this might not be the right cream for you, but there are plenty of other options out there.

Top tip: Slather your feet in foot cream and put on a pair of cotton socks overnight.

Accessories: The Body Shop

In addition to using moisturising products, using foot files, body brushes, loofah's are a great way to ex-foliate and keep your skin soft and smooth.

Top tip: Use a pumice stone or foot file on your feet to get rid of rough spots

  4. I like to use foot cream and wear cotton socks overnight. And I LOVE the body butter from The Body Shop, but I'm going to try this one with shea butter and Brazil nut. I also like to use body scrub, but don't use it so regularly in the winter because I'm afraid it'll dry my skin. I might have to follow your suggestion of moisturizing day and night! Thanks for sharing these super useful tips, hope you have a great weekend!
