09 May Winter Rescue
Ahhh! Winter isn’t far away so don’t go forgetting that the change in humidity and temperature can wreak havoc with your skin and hair. Throw in a few blustery winds and you can feel like your skin and lips are so dry they might crack. This time of year is the time to make sure you are prepared for the season ahead with some changes to your skin care and hair care routines. While you still want to protect your skin from the elements you also need to add in extra hydration. This may mean using a more hydrating shampoo and conditioner and adding something to your skin care routine to achieve a hydration boost. And the golden rule is just because you aren’t at the beach much doesn’t mean you can stop wearing sun protection. You still need SPF protection on your skin daily, bear in mind sun damage is one of the three top causes of premature ageing so the less you get the better you will look in the future!
These little beauties below are a selection of skin and hair saviours that will definitely help you get through the winter looking gorgeous!
From Left to Right-
The Jojoba Company 100% Pure Jojoba $29.95. Jojoba is a natural source of Omega 6 & 9 fatty acids, it is rich in antioxidants and essential wax esters. Add this beautiful light jojoba extract to your daily beauty regimen after moisturiser, before bed and you will have glowing, dewey hydrated skin in the morning. Jojoba will also act as a protector for the skin and lock in moisture. This is a personal favourite of mine!

It immediately leaves the skin looking dewey, plump, smooth and reduces fine lines that have been exaggerated by dryness.
