    REN Glycolic Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask

    Whenever I feel like my skin needs a little pick me up, I go straight to this exfoliating mask. It’s just so effective and leaves you with such a healthy complexion! You just apply it onto cleansed skin, leave it for 10 minutes to remove dead skin cells, then rinse it off with lukewarm water.

    I love REN’s skincare products and this mask is no exception. With no parabens, sulphates or other nasties, it provides great results using natural ingredients.

    After just one use, my skin looks smoother, healthier and more radiant. My favourite thing about it, though, is that it contains no nasties. Instead, it relies on:

    • Glycolic acid from pineapple extract to gently exfoliate the skin and remove dead skin cells.
    • Lactic acid from passion fruit to smooth and refine the texture of your skin.
    • Papain from papaya to give your complexion that extra boost of radiance.

    Gentle yet effective, it is a winter skincare must-have.

    Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment

    While my skin is a bit too sensitive for this product (hence why I’m recommending two exfoliators this month), I had to include Kate Somerville’s Intensive Exfoliating Treatment on my best winter skincare products list because of how much everyone in the office raves about it.

    This is definitely one of those ‘how did I ever live without this?’ products! I’ve been using the exfoliator once a week for a month and my skin feels amazing.

    This award-winning exfoliator smooths and brightens your skin in just two minutes. It combines natural chemical and physical exfoliators with Aloe vera and honey to exfoliate dead skin cells, while also soothing and conditioning your complexion.

    Simply massage it into clean, wet skin once a week, leave it on for 2 minutes, then rinse. You’ll notice that your skin looks more even, your pores look smaller and your wrinkles look smoother. Dull winter skin? Forgotten!

    Oskia Advanced Nutri-Active Collagen Serum

    I’ve no doubt that you’ve heard about the benefits of retinol before. As one of the only ingredients proven to actually reverse the signs of ageing, it is often referred to as the secret to eternal youth. Frustratingly, though, it can also cause a lot of irritation. That’s where Bakuchiol comes in.

    This ingredient achieves the same results as retinol without causing any sensitivity. Why does that matter, you ask? It’s one of the key ingredients in Oskia’s Advanced Nutri-Active Collagen Serum!

    A must-have for mature skin, this serum helps to reverse the signs of ageing, leaving you with a smoother, softer and clearer complexion.

    Formulated with Bakuchiol, hyaluronic acid, vitamins A, B, C and E, as well as a range of other beneficial ingredients, this serum is a miracle in a bottle. It restores your skin’s elasticity and smooths out fine lines, making it look firmer, healthier and more youthful. What’s not to love?

    Beauty Bakerie – Translucent Setting Powder

    Now that you’ve all got the skincare products you need to protect and brighten your skin, it’s time to focus on shielding your makeup from the side-effects of the cold weather too.

    You see, constantly moving between the cold outside and the warm inside can cause your makeup to dry out and crack. Plus, your scarf, your hat and even your coat can rub against the foundation you’ve so carefully applied.

    Your solution? A setting powder! It will help to keep your makeup in place all day long, regardless of the weather.

    When it comes to setting powder, it doesn’t get much better than Beauty Bakerie’s Oat Flower Setting Powder. Boasting a colourless formula, it is perfect for all skin tones.

    To make it extra effective, I’d recommend using it in two steps:

    • Apply your foundation as usual. Then, use a large fluffy brush to buff the setting powder over your whole face, leave it for a couple of minutes, before dusting off any excess.
    • Apply your concealer, then use a makeup sponge to pat the powder onto the areas you have concealed. Allow it to sit for 5 minutes, then use a fan brush to sweep away any excess.

    You’ll be left with a beautiful, matte finish that lasts. Plus, the powder will also blur your pores and soften your complexion. Honestly, you can’t beat it! You can find a full guide to using setting powder here and check out Beauty Bakerie full range of beautiful makeup here.
