The cold harsh weather of June has not been kind to my hair or skin

These are few of my favourite things that got me through the worst month of the year.

Serum for the win!

Your ordinary moisturiser just won’t do when it comes to colder months – you need to apply a serum prior to it to help retain moisture.

The Lamelle Vita-C Lipid Serum not only gave my skin the extra nourishment it needed but also added a natural, youthful glow to it too.

Detangling is the bane of my existence…

If your hair is prone to knots, you’ll know what a mission it is  to detangle after washing!

The Tangleteezer Wet Detangling Brush helped me eliminate the torture of having to comb through my mass of curls quickly and easily – mission definitely possible!

This brush is made for all hair types and is so easy to clean after each use. It’s also super cute too!

Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate!

With dry skin comes a build-up of dry skin cells giving you that rough, scaly look like Lizzy the lizzard. Exfoliating regularly is the only way to remove dead skin cells and give the new ones underneath a chance to see the light of day.

The Marrakech Argan Exfoliating Body Scrub infused with Vitamin E and tiny granules gave me smooth and soft skin instantlyIt also smells yummy too!

A different kind of face mask

These days the only face masks we use regularly are the ones that restrict your oxygen consumption and leave you prone to acne.

But it’s important to remember that our faces also need a little extra pampering, especially in winter!

Jam-packed with serum, the SVR B3 Intensive Hydra Mask is perfect for dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin. With Vitamin B3 and hyaluronic acid, it leaves your skin feeling hydrated and plumped up in just 15 minutes!

A mini face lift indeed!

More than a moisturiser

If you suffer from eczema, itching or any very dry skin conditions, you’ll know that winter is your worst enemy.

For me skin rashes and allergies during this part of the year leaves my skin inflamed and on fire!

But after using the Eau Thermale Avène liquid-replenishing balm after a hot bath, I was pleasantly surprised at the rich creamy consistency and the soothing effect on my skin.

A must for every winter!
