A seriously skindulgent giveaway to Karry your skin safely through winter.
Winter: the season of twinkly fairy lights, roaring fires, festive cheer, parties…and dry, sensitised, dehydrated skin.
As the temperature drops so, often, does our skin’s resilience. It’s time to dial up the TLC along with the heating.
Harsh weather conditions together with that central heating can leave the complexion feeling, and looking, less than gorgeous. There’s no need for a whole winter skincare regime change but a couple of tweaks to your routine over the colder months can ensure your skin is taken care of and kept looking its best.
The key steps are to find nourishing products that cleanse the skin without stripping it, give it a healthy glow, moisturise to replenish hydration and protect it from further damage. Help your hydration levels by drinking lots of water throughout the day (as well as those pumpkin spice lattes/red wine) and always, always SPF. Yes, even in the depths of winter, when the sun seems like a distant memory, you should use a minimum SPF30 to protect your skin from the damage caused by UV rays. Your future self will thank you.
The Karry London Winter Skin Saviour Giveaway
To celebrate the arrival of winter we have curated a gorgeous giveaway: * an edit of fabulous, full-size skincare OGs together with a selection of our covetable Karryables:
Emma Harding Moringa Cleansing Balm, 100ml
Once tried, never forgotten – this is one of those products that has slowly and steadily built up legions of fans because it’s just so good. The luxurious balm-to-oil cleanser melts into the skin and gently but effectively lifts the dirt away. Particularly lovely for winter because it hydrates as it cleanses, leaving the skin nourished without that ‘stripped’ feeling. Suitable for all skin types, the botanical formula balances and purifies with the subtle scent of orange, neroli, jasmine and rose.
Medik8 Press and Glow Exfoliating PHA Tonic, 200ml
Regular, gentle exfoliation will help your winter complexion get its glow back. Beloved by dermatologists and beauty experts, the PHA in this Medik8 Exfoliating Tonic stands for poly hydroxy acid but don’t let the ‘acid’ word put you off. With larger molecules than other acids (such as AHAs and BHAs), PHAs don’t penetrate the skin as deeply, so only the surface of the skin is exfoliated, making this tonic gentle enough to be used daily. Delivers glow, speeds up cell turnover, improves hydration and helps to reduce hyperpigmentation.
Kate Somerville Dry Skin Saviour, 120ml
Another cult brand, this time from celebrity esthetician Kate Somerville. Dry Skin Saviour is a restorative cream, designed to be used on the face, body and even the lips. The formula combines botanical ingredients with a multi-functional lipid complex to replenish hydration levels and soothe sensitive skin. It also works to restore the skin’s natural barrier function which is vital in protecting the skin from irritation. Making sure you are consistent when it comes to applying a moisturiser can make a real difference to dry and dehydrated skin.
Malin & Goetz Lip Moisturiser, 10ml
Who doesn’t love a lip balm?! Lip balms act as a kind of beauty talisman: we’re probably not the only ones who feel nervous if we don’t have one within easy reach. This one comes in a handy tube, so avoiding smeary fingers, and is without fragrance or flavour. Sometimes you crave a cherry Chapstick but sometimes you just need something without distraction. This hydrating gel absorbs quickly and is full of fatty acids which hydrate and soothe the lips without the need for constant reapplication. A little goes a long way.
