A dip in the temperatures, central heating and a lack of sunshine can wreak havoc on your winter skincare routine. Introduce motherhood and January lethargy and you’re left with dehydrated, tired skin vulnerable to dullness – just lovely.

That’s why I’m hot on switching up my skincare style, introducing moisture-rich beauty products which create a mighty barrier against the winter elements.

In addition, with less sun, you also have less UV damage, so this is a good time to get stuck into a good exfoliator to really work on your skin. So, if you want to get your mama glow on this season with some easy, but transformative winter skincare essentials to help you maintain the slay.


My 5 winter skincare essentials, include

  1. LIP BALM “There is nothing worse then chapped, peeling lips, it’s all about keeping them slick with moisture with a good lip balm.”
  2. MOISTURISING OIL  “I’ve upgraded my moisturisers to a daily oil I use as a rich base, you can use on it’s own or add a couple of drops to your regular moisturiser.”
  3. EXFOLIATOR “Consider your exfoiliation sessions to be spring cleaning for your skin, as they buff away the dead skin cells and give dullness a firm kick up the butt, leaving revitalised, smooth skin.”
  4. MIST “I’m obsessed with rehydrating in the middle of the day with a mist, its a great way of upping the moisture levels and instantly refreshing.”
  5. HAND CREAM “It’s not just your face that needs attention in winter, but your hands and feet (remember them?) too. I’m 100% about a super rich hand cream to keep my fingers protected and soft.”

  1. Yes to the gif! I am definitely a coconut oil lover, smother Z’s cradle cap scalp with it. Thanks for the heads up on the scrub, definitely needed to get a new one… strange thing is most scrubs give me hiccups when I use them. Curious to see if this one does lol

  2. Lip balm and hand cream are my essentials when it’s winter. Thank you for sharing more products that I can use specifically during the winter season. I haven’t tried oil as a moisturizer, but I will try this soon. If given the choice to only pick one essential for winter, what will you choose?
