Beauty Swaps To Make Before Winter Sets In

Goodbye summer, hello gloomy winter! Although it’s always a sad time saying goodbye to the warm weather, dewy complexions and hydrated hair–by making a few changes to your beauty regime, you can keep the summer dream alive. Here are some winter beauty switches that will keep you glowing all year long.



Bitter winds and heaters blaring unfortunately mean our faces are the first things to dry up when the seasons change. The best way to combat this? Upping your moisturising game and water intake ASAP. Invest in an oil-based, gentle facial moisturiser for long lasting hydration, and a rich night cream that will nourish and protect your skin throughout the night. It can be challenging trying to keep maintain your water intake during the colder months. Try switching your coffee for herbal tea to get your litres in while keeping warm.

Hair Care

Sometimes the only way to face cold mornings is to jump straight in a steamy shower. Unfortunately, hot showers can be extremely drying for our scalps and can leave your hair looking dull and flat. try incorporating a hair treatment into your hair care routine once every fortnight to give your hair a hydration boost. Try keeping your hair washes to 3 times a week to let your natural oils do the work, and keep the temperature more on the warmer side!

Lip Care

If you’re anything like me, your lip balm game is strong all year around. There’s not a more important time to of the year to lather up your lips in conditioning treatments than winter. Trying opting for products with vitamin C oil to help against skin-damaging free radicals. Make sure you’re applying lip products morning, afternoon and night for constant moisture!

Illuminator and Highlighter

Highlighter and illuminators are a fast-tracked way to adding a subtle glow to a dull, winter complexion. Try mixing illuminators into your foundation or moisturiser for a dewy base. Add highlighter to the high points of your face to reflect light and enhance your natural features. Creamy and liquid products are perfect for the cooler months- moisturising and glowing!

Body Care

Although you’ll be mostly rugged up, it’s super important to keep your body moisturised to restore your skin’s natural balance that can be lost due to constant heating. Try swapping out your gel body wash and soaps for nourishing shower creams with ingredients like shea butter and aloe vera. Lathering your body up in a rich moisturiser after a hot shower will also keep your skin supple and hydrated!
