Soak to your hearts content thanks to the nourishing benefits of the Sleep Wellness Soak

Having a bath in winter is a winning combo and what better than adding your favourite soak to the mix! The Sleep Wellness Soak is going to be your best friend this winter due to the nourishing ingredients such as oatmeal and white clay to moisturise and soften the skin. Baths can tend to dry out the skin but by making your bath not too hot and by adding Sleep Wellness Soak you'll be on to a winner.

Moisturise Moisturise Moisturise!!!

It's a no brainer yet it's something we all forget to do. By doing so you are putting back into your body all the moisture that has been sucked out due to the cold and extra hot showers we're all guilty of! The key times to moisturise is after you shower or have a bath (as this will allow for the spaces between your skin cells to keep in moisture while the skin is still damp), and when you wake and go to bed.

Some other ways of moisturising include, carrying a hand lotion with you in your hand bag, using oils such as rose hip oil before you go to bed,  putting on eye cream, using body lotions and of course a nourishing lip balm!

Use a humidifier

A humidifier is going to be your bestie this winter! By setting it to around 60%, the top layer of your skin is able to replenish and leave you feeling wonderful. 

Stay away from harsh soaps

Steer clear of deodorant soaps, perfumed soaps, and alcohol products,  as these products strip the skin of natural oils and moisture that is needed especially in winter. Instead use products that are soap free cleansers that will do what soap does without the negative effects.

Now that you don't have dry skin thanks to these handy tips and tricks, by using a dewy BB cream you'll look glowy, highlighted and illuminated even more than you would and by changing your foundation from matte to dewy your face will look the part (plus it looks more natural).
