My winter beauty tips

With the dark evenings upon us and long winter nights fast on the horizon, our skin needs a little extra care. Here are my top winter beauty tips to get you through the season with that extra glow.


  • A good moisturizer – is essential, heating, change of temperature, cold winds all add up to a drying effect on our skin. I have been using Crème de La Mer Moisturizing cream ever since it launched in the UK way back in the nineties. More recently they launched the ‘Moisturizing Soft Cream’  which I love for the luxuriously smooth and milky texture. The nutrient-rich formula will re-hydrate dry, tired and stressed skin, deeply penetrating to renew and re-energize your complexion.

  • Lip Balm – Crème de La Mer’s The Lip Balm soothes and repairs severely dry lips with a lightweight and effective formula. With a refreshing mint flavor and velvety smooth finish, your pout will feel instantly softer and smoother. This balm sounds expensive but lasts the whole winter and everyone that I have introduced this to are now addicted.

  • Exfoliator –  Dry, flaky winter skin needs a good polish to reveal a brighter complexion. I use Crème de La Mer’s The refining facial. This product gently polishes and exfoliates without harsh abrasives allowing your skin to look rejuvenated, smooth and radiant. My Sunday morning ritual.

  • Illuminator – the secret to younger looking skin, it subtly highlights your best features  for that sort after glow. Nars illuminator , organic ingredients and luminous vitality make this a beauty-kit essential.

  • Hand cream – again, this is my essential, Crème de La Mer The Hand Treatment. Smooth, soft hands are achieved by using this lotion whilst creating an emollient barrier to protect and hydrate even the driest skin.

  • Dark red lipstick–  The final touch, it goes so well with black and has a timeless elegance that makes you look stunning. I have two current ones for you to try, firstly, the new Estée Lauder Kendall Jenner Pure Color Matte Sculpting Lipstick. Creamy, Matte, Intense, a true red that is glamorous and chic in equal measures.

It has a  super hydrating texture that leaves lips plumped and smooth, even in the coldest weather.
