Winter complexion woes? So many to share, too many to list. Dehydration and dryness are the toughest to battle when the wind chill blasts your skin. Then there’s central heating to contend with and (too) many December tipples. It may well be the season to be jolly, but the visage is not so keen. It’s practically impossible to carry on with your summer skincare choices throughout the colder months, without noticing the need for something a little more hard-hitting…
Start with the basics and swap in a mega cleanser with tons of hydration to up your beauty game. Our current favourite? Eve Lom’s magical Gel Balm Cleanser. Is it a gel? Is it a balm? Well, it’s both and it’s nothing short of wonderful. Firstly, digging the new pump-top packaging, which makes for fuss-free and super-hygienic application, and the beautiful scent, which is ultra-calming and botanical, as always.
Apply a touch of water to the skin, pump the thick gel into your palms and massage across the skin to remove make-up and impurities.
On contact, the balm texture suddenly comes to the fore, melting away the grime. Then, with a good rinse (no muslin cloth required) the product becomes milky, leaving a perfectly cleansed complexion with no oily residue or tight feeling.
It feels very healing, deeply nourishing and is the ideal winter cleanser for more punch, without heaviness. A delightful mix of shea butter, grapeseed oil, eucalyptus oil, argan, clove and chamomile work in harmony to leave baby soft, bright skin, without stripping the skin’s moisture.
Plus, if you find the cult classic cleanser from Eve Lom a little arduous to fit in to your morning routine, then this is the answer, because it’s so speedy to use, thanks to the lightweight formula.
