We're all adjusting to the shorter, darker days and cooler temperatures as winter envelops the country, but there's another change you may have noticed. As the days get colder, our skin loses moisture, turning it red, dry, and irritated.
The reason for our dry skin in winter is that the amount of moisture in the air decreases, making the water in your skin evaporate more quickly. In fact, throughout the winter, your skin's ability to retain moisture might drop by as much as 25%. And, even those who spend most of their time indoors can find that winter leaves their skin chapped and flaky, as indoor heating is equally drying.
Thankfully, dry winter skin isn’t as inevitable as it might sound. With a few proactive steps, you can prevent the loss of moisture and keep your skin looking dewy and healthy throughout the festive season.
When your face is already showing signs of dryness, the last thing you want to do is use irritating, drying astringents on your skin. Instead, use the natural power of Vitamin C to break the bonds holding onto those flakes, and reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.
The Philosophy Microdelivery Vitamin C Peel Kit 2pc contains everything you need to say goodbye to dry winter skin. Used once per week, the peptides and Vitamin C rapidly resurface and replenish your complexion, using organic acid to encourage the turnover of dead skin cells. Try it for yourself and experience the award-winning properties of this two-step peel.
Anyone who knows about the transformational properties of Vitamin C won’t be surprised to find another skin product containing this wonder ingredient on our list. The Dermalogica Age Smart Biolumin C Moisturiser is a brightening gel that delivers weightless hydration to your skin.
Biolumin C is an ultra-stable complex that enhances the bioavailability of Vitamin C to the skin. It’s combined with squalene and hyaluronic acid to attract moisture and draw it deep within the dermis. Together, your complexion will be more hydrated, radiant and healthier.
Refine and smooth your skin with the combined properties of volcanic pumice, kaolin clay and green tea extract. Designed to resurface your skin in as little as 10 minutes, Glamglow Youthmud Glow Stimulating Treatment is a quick and easy way to remove impurities and improve the skin’s texture without stripping its natural oils.

In collaboration with beauty journalist and diversity advocate, Ateh Jewel, The Organic Pharmacy have released this fabulous Glow Serum, a perfect addition to your winter skincare regimen.
The Organic Pharmacy Ateh x Glow Serum includes hyaluronic acid to attract moisture to the skin, Vitamin C to brighten and resurface, and aloe vera to soothe, hydrate and protect. With its subtle shimmer, you’ll enjoy that all-important glow factor, putting an end to dull winter skin. Apply a few drops in the morning before your moisturiser for a plump, hydrated complexion.
When the weather cools, your blood vessels contract and tighten, reducing the flow of blood to your skin. Then, when you return indoors to normal temperatures, the vessels expand, leaving your skin looking plump and flushed. It’s this effect that the Luxur Berlin Synch Neck Massager utilises to encourage healthy blood circulation to your neck and other areas of your body.
Using smart vibration technology and variable temperature settings up to 45℃, the handheld device dilates blood vessels, allowing blood to flow freely to the skin’s surface. The result? Smoother, silkier skin and a brighter more radiant complexion.
Use the powers of nature and technology to reverse winter skin damage and reveal a more youthful, healthy you.
