Overnight, it seems that the cold snap has finally hit Australia. The cold weather, mixed with indoor heaters, and harsh winds are a recipe for disaster when it comes to your skin.

Below are some super quick, easy and practical solutions to keep your skin nourished & hydrated throughout the colder months.



It is really easy to become dehydrated in Winter, we opt for more hot drinks like coffee, hot chocs, and teas. Staying hydrated in Winter is as important as staying hydrated in Summer. Studies have shown that it is essential for your body to stay hydrated in order for it to function properly, it helps to regulate body temperate and plays a vital role in the function of cells, tissues, and organs.



It is hard for moisture to seep in when you have dead skin cells blocking the way. Exfoliating is a great way to gently remove the dead skin and cells while still protecting and nourishing your skin.


Warm Shower

Love a hot shower? So do I, but I am afraid this is where a lot of the hard work may come undone. The intensity of the heat in your shower can actually break down your lipid barrier in your skin, which has been suggested by research to cause a loss of moisture in your skin.


Body Oil

After jumping out of your warm shower, I love to pop my body oil on when my body is still damp. I find my skin feels nourished and being damp allows the oil to be better absorbed on my skin, it also dries quicker too, allowing you to get changed quicker.


Lip scrub

One of my favourite ways to keep my lips plump and hydrated. By doing a homemade lip scrub (equal parts shea butter & coconut sugar) once a week, you can help prevent chapping and the build-up of dry skin on your lips.


Cuticle Oil

Your cuticles can come extremely dehydrated in winter, so I love to keep a small jar of oil (coconut oil/almond oil with drops of rosehip) at my desk and rub into my cuticles.



It might be time to rotate your cleansers with a hydrating lotion cleanser rather than a foaming. Many foaming cleansers have surfactants which can have a drying effect on your skin.
