Keeping your complexion hydrated and healthy can be a challenge at the best of times, and never more so than in winter when the temperature drops outdoors and we spend more time indoors with the central heating and air conditioning up high. It can leave your skin feeling dry and dull.
So here are some tips to help get your glow back, naturally.

If you’re looking for glowing skin, you need to go back to basics. Sometimes we fall out of habits that are good for us and need a nudge to get back on track. Well, consider this your nudge to drink more water, eat a range of fruit and veg to help your body stay hydrated and stock up on the vitamins and minerals you need to thrive. Make sure you get enough sleep too. Your body is hard at work repairing skin tissue while you sleep, so let it do this without interruptions. Your skin will naturally feel and look better for it.
Give your skin a boost by booking in for a facial at one of the many spas and beauty rooms we have dotted around the island (list to come!). You’ll benefit from all of the rejuvenating steps of a luxury treatment with quality products chosen to meet the needs of your skin professionally applied by a trained therapist. Most facials include a deep cleansing, exfoliation, massage and moisturising treatment, all chosen to meet your skin's exact needs. It's the perfect place to start. It’s also just a lovely way to relax and be pampered… we’re all for that.
We all know that what we put into our bodies should be as healthy and chemical free as possible, but that should apply to what we apply onto our bodies too. The skin is our largest organ and it is very absorbent, so be sure to take a look at the label on your skincare products going forward and ask yourself 'Would I eat this?' If the answer is ‘no way!’ then maybe you should reconsider applying it to your skin. Find natural skincare product to use all over your body to provide moisture and help you achieve that summer glow all year round.
There are lots of great products on the market that you can use to give your skin a boost and enhance your natural glow. Maybe too much in fact - the choice can be overwhelming! The key is to choose quality products that hydrate and illuminate your skin. And by quality we don’t necessarily mean expensive. Just keep an eye on ingredients lists. Less is more, so out with the harsh chemicals. Choose products with more natural ingredients, as well as brands that have sun protection built-in to protect your skin, even over the winter months.
Regularly applying a quality moisturiser is the most effective part of your skincare routine in winter. As well as hydrating your skin, it can soothe and protect it from the harsh elements and help boost your glow. We’ve done our research to bring you a selection of facial moisturisers you can buy locally, from beauty brands you can trust. You’re welcome.
