Winter skin? Read what Rebecca from the BBA family has to say about our products that will take care of you.
Something I dread in winter is dry, flaky, sun-deprived skin. It is so important to give your body extra attention when you aren’t getting enough natural sun. We need to protect our skin against the wind, cold, rain and free radicals, so I’ve curated a beauty list of everything you need to take care of your skin. Curated so that your skin feels smooth and nourished. Curated, as always, with care.
- ASPAR Grapefruit & Rosehip Revitalising Body Oil
The number one thing I personally recommend in winter is to ensure that a body oil is part of your daily ritual. It is such a versatile product; it can be used on your skin, nails and hair! Oils help reintroduce lost moisture in the skin after cleansing or exfoliating. Think of it like food for your body. This ASPAR body oil is the perfect blend of nourishing ingredients and smells delicious!
- Leif Lemon Myrtle Body Lotion
Winter demands a good moisturiser! I like to use my body oil first, right after a shower and scrub, and then follow this up with my Leif body lotion to keep up my skin’s moisture levels. It hydrates with a trifecta of Australian native botanicals and the scent isn’t overwhelming, so you can use it all day. Of course, the gorgeous packaging makes it a perfect desk or bedside companion.
- Hunter Lab Cleansing Facial Scrub
When your skin is battling the winter wind, free radicals and pollution, exfoliation is essential. I personally recommend exfoliating three times a week during the colder months. Just remember to support this ritual with face oil and moisturiser (preferably one with hyaluronic acid in it). The Hunter Lab scrub has a natural 2-in-1 foaming facial cleansing exfoliant, and has invigorating native macrobiotic sea minerals, and passion flower, violet leaf and bladderwrack extracts to soothe, hydrate and stimulate cell renewal. It also contains sugarcane to effortlessly shed dead surface skin and clear dirt and excesses without irritating sensitive skin. The best part? It’s unisex and can be a His and Hers scrub to share with your partner.
- Hunter Lab Charcoal Mud Mask
After a long day, there is no better feeling than to wind down with an amazing mud mask, your favourite book or TV episode, a tea and maybe a cheeky chocolate. I treat my skin to a mask at least once a week to replenish it. My current go-to mask is the Hunter Lab Charcoal Mud Mask, made with charcoal, bentonite and kaolin clay. It cleanses my pores and removes impurities, and the ever nourishing aloe vera, vitamin A and E take my face hydration to the next level. Once I wash it off, I’m left with insatiably smooth and nourished skin. The matt black packaging means there is no reason why your man can’t join the mud mask party too!
- Dope Skin Co Hemp & Himalayan Salt Body Scrub
Your body also needs some extra TLC come winter to reinvigorate dry, flaky skin. My current obsession is the Dope Skin Co Hemp & Himalayan Salt Body Scrub. It sloughs away dead skin, revealing a smoother, softer body. Regularly scrubbing your body can boost circulation, overall health and smooth dry patches, support cellulite reduction, as well as unclog pores. I love how the sweet orange and mandarin essential oils refresh and revitalise my senses.
- Hunter Lab Pinot Grape Skin Bath Soak
The simple joys of a hot bubble filled bath with a nice glass of wine and a good book is perfect in winter. I love adding the Hunter Lab Pinot Grape Skin Bath Soak to my bathwater. This detoxifying vinotherapy bath salt soak is crafted with antioxidant-rich cranberry extract, grape skins and seeds to nourish skin, and epsom and rock salts to relax muscles, increase blood circulation, and draw out impurities. It’s just what I need if I’ve been at the gym or running around all week!
- Peggy Sue Blue Bath Brew Pockets
My other go-to is the incredible Peggy Sue Blue Bath Brew Pockets, filled with a delicious blend of coconut milk, oats, cocoa butter and epsom salts. These brew pockets will infuse the water with an array of vitamins and magnesium to soften your skin, soothe and relax muscle tension, as well as give your skin the nourishment and love it deserves.
