Winter Skincare Essentials

In today's post I am going to be talking to you about something which is so extremely important to me over the colder months - my skincare essentials. I know I'm not alone in suffering with drier skin during this time of the year, so I thought I would share what products help me through!


My face doesn't get too bad compared to the rest of my body, nonetheless I still like to keep the skin on my face as hydrated as possible. The product that I swear by to moisturise my face is the Nivea Soft Moisturising Cream. The quality of this moisturiser is amazing and really does the job, I love that this product doesn't break the bank either - sometimes you don't need to spend lots of money!

My lips are honestly so important in terms of being moisturised in the winter, my favourite lip balm is the Carmex Lip Balm. I love the tingling sensation on my lips when applied, and I also love the distinctive scent of this product too! Aside from that, it makes my lips feel soft and moisturised.


There's two areas on my body where I suffer the most with dry skin, my hands and my legs. This has actually been the case for some years now during the colder months, but I've learned how to combat that. With my hands I have to apply so much hand cream throughout the day to keep my hands moisturised and prevent them from getting dry and sore. The hand cream that honestly helps me out is the Soap and Glory Hand Food. If ever my hands are feeling really dry, a little bit of Hand Food makes them feel so much more smoother again, and it smells amazing!

In terms of my legs, once I'm out of the bath/shower I apply the Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Body Gel. Because this product is a gel, you need to apply this to semi-dry skin or else your skin will feel extremely sticky which is not nice! I really feel like this gel has helped to make my skin feel so much better since I started using it.

Another product I swear by is the Soap and Glory Righteous Butter. This is such a rich butter so you definitely don't need to use too much of it, but it really sinks into your skin and leaves it feeling so much more hydrated and moisturised.

So I think that's it in terms of what I use to keep my skin going throughout the winter, let me know below what your winter skincare essentials are?
