Temperatures are looking to hit freezing this week, but we’ve got you covered. Beat the cold snap with this arsenal of skin and haircare that will save you during the cold spell. All of which happen to be under £10.
Cold air makes hair brittle and prone to breakage. Drench hair in replenishing products and treatments to stave off dryness. Oils are perfect for this; like a cashmere wrap for winter hair, fine oils penetrate to the core of the hair without weighing it down. Apply a few drops to mid-lengths and ends before styling.
Winter winds whip moisture away from skin, and arid indoor heating dries out what little is left. Rotating between the cold and the heat constantly sends skin haywire. This French pharmacy cream locks in moisture by strengthening skins barrier, while repairing sore skin. I like to layer it on at night, but it’s one for the whole family.
The ultimate relaxation remedy, a non-sticky gel-like balm that warms up on contact with skin. Apply it after a long stint outside, let it work it’s magic to warm you up and help you rmuscles unwind. It’s my go-to after an hour freezing on the side-lines at football on a Tuesday evening.
