Top 5 Tips to avoid Dry,Chapped Winter skin

If like me you suffer with a dryer skin in the winter months here are some brilliants tips from Lara Evans, who will be featured as my Beauty expert ( )

1.    Cleanse morning and night with a soap free cleanser to suit your skin type. We tend to apply more make up during the winter months so it's important to remove it effectively in order to prevent the risk of irritation and congested skin.

2.    Exfoliate at least 3 times a week with a mild, gentle exfoliant to help remove dead skin cells. This will help to brighten your complextion as it will encourage the younger skin underneath to be revealed, therefore leaving you with a  brighter, fresher appearance.

3. Moisturiser is a must have during these months.  We go from centrally heated environments to cold outdoor temperatures which can play havoc with our skin. Invest in a good moisturiser that you will use every day, and if the pennies will stretch to it an eye cream but ensure you only use a small amount and  don't take it up too close to the eye as this will create puffiness to the delicate skin in that area.

4.    Treat yourself...........start the new year as you mean to go on, book yourself in for a facial with a professional beauty therapist, preferably choose one that can advise you on your skin type and suggest products that may help any specific concerns you may have, not only will this be great for your skin  it will  and make you feel great to.
Dermalogica's facials start with a face mapping session so the therapist can identify your skins specific requirements...brilliant!

5. Keep hydrated!  Drink at least 1 1/2 - 2 litres of water a day this will hydrate you from the inside out, if you find plain water boring, try popping a slice of lemon or lime into it to make it a bit more palitable, you will soon notice the difference in the texture of your skin after a week or so, plus it will help to flush out any toxins from your system thus giving you a healthy glow.

Lots of love
