Top 10 Winter Beauty Must Haves
Posted on 26 June 2014
As we head into the colder months the winds, and constant heat from air conditioners can really do damage to our skin and hair. We have put together a list of our favourite winter beauty products that help us to keep our skin glowing and hair manageable throughout winter.
Organic Surge- Kiss and Make-Up Cleansing Wipes
These cleansing wipes are not only super soft but they are organic and completely bio-degradable! They are perfectly convenient for wiping away make-up, dirt and oil, rehydrating your skin and suitable for those of you with sensitive skin. We love to use these after a night out because we know sleeping with our makeup on is a big no-no - your skin (and pillowcases) will thank you in the morning!
Korres Face and Body Yoghurt Cream with SPF30
Hailing from the sun soaked islands of Greece comes Korres' Face and Body Yoghurt Cream with SPF30. Don't be fooled by winter's cool temperatures and cloud cover, always protect your face and neck against UVA and UVB rays with a cream containing an SPF factor of at least 30.
We love this Korres product as it contains yoghurt (they claim it is edible but we are yet to try it!), refreshing and moisturising the skin while providing protection with added protein.
Appelles Apothecary - Bath Caviar
Who doesn't love a hot bath during winter after a hard days work? Appelles Bath Caviar smells amazing, leaves you feeling relaxed and your skin feeling smooth and moisturised. Soak away!
Lucas' Papaw Remedies - Papaw Ointment
There is nothing worse than dry and cracked lips thanks to chilly temperatures and wind exposure, and we have the answer! Lucas' Papaw ointment is proudly Australian owned and made and boasts an endless list of medicinal benefits (but we mainly use it as lip balm). Coming in 3 different sizes, this ointment glides on easily without a sticky residue and fixes up dried and cracked lips leaving them feeling soft and moisturised.
Rosehip Plus - Cold Pressed Rosehip Oil
We love this 100% organic cold pressed rose hip oil enriched with antioxidants and vitmains to keep our skin hydrated. Apply a few drops before bed, let the oil work its miracle over night and wake up with your skin feeling soft and supple!
Babe Body Scrubs
The winter months can leave your skin feeling dry, flaky and unloved. Make sure you treat your entire body to an exfoliating scrub every 2 weeks to get rid of rough and dead skin to reveal the new soft skin underneath. Babe Body Scrubs are another set of Australian owned and made products that are jam packed full of awesome organic ingredients. We particularly love the coffee scrub for its caffeine properties that help us in the battle of visible cellulite.
L'Occitane - Shea Butter Rose Tenderness Hand Cream
Peeling cuticles are not attractive and that is exactly what happens to our hands in winter. With 20% shea butter this product moisturises without leaving an oily residue. Keep your hands and nails in tip top shape this winter with the beautifully rose scented hand lotion from L'Occitane.
Moroccan Oil - Body Souffle
After treating your skin to an exfoliating scrub, drench your skin in this amazing Body Souffle by Moroccan Oil. The Body Souffle's argan oil and shea butter will restore moisture to your skin, making it feel smooth and supple. Even though it is slightly more expensive than other products we think it is worth every dollar!
Oh Hello Hair - Hydrating Mask
Constant exposure to winds, changing temperatures, blow drying and straightening can stress out your locks during winter! We love this Australian owned and made and 100% natural hydrating masks as it leaves our hair feeling moisturised, frizz free and smelling great! We leave the mask in overnight so our locks really have time to soak up the hydrating goodness.
Model Co - Natural Self-Tan Mousse
Sometimes winter can leave us looking like Casper the ghost and feeling very much the same. Model Co's Natural Self-Tan Mousse is super easy to apply and free from all the chemical nasties including parabens and artificial preservatives. You won't get that embarrassing fake tan smell either as this mouse is infused with coconut.. (yum!). Apply the mousse after a full body Babe Body Scrub and in 6-8 hours you will have a fully developed 'summer' tan...too easy!
