As we all know winter is officially here in Geelong and the team at Snif have put together some tips and products that we love to help keep dry skin at bay and give glowing skin all year round.
Your skin can become a lot drier in winter and to get the most out of all your hydrating creams, serums and oils try sloughing off the top layer of dry skin with an exfoliate. Our top picks for the body are La Perla Energizing Salts and oil body scrub or the Compagnie De Provence Karite gommage. For the face we love the Santa Maria Novella Idralia cream exfoliate.
2: ADD SOME OIL
Have you ever wanted to try a face or body oil? Winter is the ideal time to add oil into your skin care routine. Oil helps to soothe the skin and lock in hydration. You can mix them into your moisturizer or use as a replacement of a heavy cream. Here at Snif we are big fans of the Compagnie De Provence Shower oil, hydrating facial cleaning oil and the incredible serum in oil to be used before your facial moisturizer.
3: REACH FOR A MASK
Heating and hot showers are great for keeping cozy during winter but can dry out your skin. It’s the perfect time to bring out the masks. The Night Face Mask from the Antioxidant Fig Skincare Collection reduces the appearance of wrinkles and signs of fatigue…While you sleep! In the morning, wrinkles and signs of fatigue are less visible. You can wake up to skin that looks beautifully fresh and hydrated.
The Idralia Mask from Santa Maria Novella is a replenishing moisturizer that immediately gives the feeling of nourished and silky skin. Formulated for all skin types, it is enriched with the elegant Rosa Gardenia fragrance.
Whether it’s your body or face- moisture is key. Here at Snif we love a body moisturizer with a subtle scent that you can layer with your favorite fragrance and our pick is from Juliet Has A Gun, NOT a Body Lotion.
For your face you can’t go past the Idralia Face cream from Santa Maria Novella. Idralia Face Cream boosts the natural hydrolipidic balance of the skin, making it more moisturized and hydrated.
5: HYDRATING WASH/ SOAP
Start your winter routine in the shower or bath with a hydrating shower gel, oil, or bar of soap. Our top picks are Compagnie De Provence Huile De Douche Nourishing Showering Oil, Compagnie De Provence Karite Liquid Soap, and Santa Maria Novella Sapone d’olio d’oliva (olive oil bar of soap)
6: HAND CREAM.
Don’t forget your hands! The cooler moths and notoriously harsh on the hands. Heating and washing can leave them rough and dry. Using a nourishing and hydrating hand cream can help prevent the dryness and cracking that excessive hand washing can cause. Nishane, Juliet Has A Gun and La Perla are our favorites
