Read this in: 4 minutes

As cold weather draws in, so do chapped lips, flaky skin and a dull complexio. Keep your skin smooth and hydrated with these go-to products.

The Exfoliator 

Bybi Beauty Prime Time Facial Polish, £14, Harvey Nichols 

If you’re looking to achieve a smooth and bright complexion then exfoliation should be a key step in your skincare routine. This Bybi Prime Time Facial Polish will gently remove the dead skin cells that gradually clog pores, leaving you with noticeably fresher skin that acts as a smooth canvas when applying makeup. With a zesty fragrance and grainy consistency (thanks to the jojoba seeds), gently massage into skin a couple of times a week alongside your other products for best results.

The Face Oil

Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil, £34, Space NK

Having only launched in the UK a few months ago, this much-loved and highly-renowned cult beauty brand ticks all our boxes. Described as ‘rehab for your skin’, this luxurious facial oil absorbs deep into the pores to give dull skin a boost using just one ingredient. Apply daily anywhere on the body that needs a bit of extra hydration, but make sure you use sparingly as a little goes a long way with this light seed oil. 

The Serum

Sunday Riley A+ High-dose Retinoid Serum, Cult Beauty

Due to be released in February is this new release from Sunday Riley, which is well known in the industry for having highly effective skincare solutions. Made with a 6.5% blend of retinoid (one of the highest concentrations on the market), this pro-strength serum allows you to gain all the benefits of traditional retinoids without the prescription and is suitable for even the most sensitive skin. Use as part of your evening ritual to fight signs of ageing for fresh, young skin. 

The Lip Oil

Hourglass No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil, £45, Harvey Nichols 

Give your lips the TLC they deserve during the colder months by adding an Hourglass lip oil to your makeup bag. Whether you’re keeping your lips glossy on the go with a pinky rose or layering over a matte lipstick with a deep berry, these brand new shades contain active ingredients to nourish the lips and boost moisture levels once applied, meaning you won’t have to worry about cracked lips during winter.

The Cleanser 

Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Cleansing Ritual, £32.50, Selfridges 

Just when we thought we couldn’t love her any more, Charlotte Tilbury does it again and brings out a product we’re lusting after from the minute it’s released. Inspired by the age-old rituals of bathing, cleansing and dressing, this two-step product is made up of two unique cleansers. Step one is a coconut-oil based radiance cleanser that melts away surface impurities, whilst step two is a deep purifying charcoal cleanse that penetrates into the pores to tackle deep-rooted dirt. Use together with a muslin cloth for perfectly cleansed skin that won’t feel completely stripped of hydration. 

The Primer 

Cover FX Super Primers, £30, Harvey Nichols 

When it comes to primers, one size doesn’t fit all. Thanks to Cover FX’s three new Super Primers there’s a base to suit every makeup look. Keep your face protected against daily pollution with the Water Cloud Primer, achieve flawless application with the Gripping Primer, and create a naturally smooth glow with the Dewy Skin Primer – all £30.

The Moisturiser

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream, £70, Selfridges

Best-selling, award-winning and a favourite of a whole host of Hollywood stars, the clue’s in the name when it comes to Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream. Add instant illumination by massaging into your face as part of your morning routine, and watch as skin transforms into a youthful glowy base. With ingredients of Rosehip and Camelia oil, Aloe Vera and Vitamins C and E, this is ideal if your skin’s been looking dull and tired recently.

The Lip Balm

Lip Plumper & Buffer Lip Kit, £16, Bybi Beauty

If, like us, cold weather leaves you with dry and chapped lips then this power duo is the perfect solution – there’s one step to buff and one step to plump. This cruelty-free and vegan product comes in cute pink packaging, and is designed to remove flaky bits before adding moisture to leave your lips looking full and lucsious.

The Bath Oil

Orange & Bergamot Radiant Bathing Oil, £40, John Lewis

Enriched with Sevillian neroli oil, orange, bergamot and mandarin, this soothing bath oil can be poured into warm running water before easing yourself in and soaking your whole body. The oils will leave skin feeling smooth and nourished, whilst natural ingredients will infuse the room to relax you – the perfect recipe for a quiet night in.
