In winter we tend to move from one extreme to the other... hot to cold, cold to hot, dry to wet or wet to windy. These changes in conditions have a tendency to dry out the skin, making it feel dehydrated, dry and flaky.
As our skin endures the extremities of cold temperatures, high winds, and the contrasting dry air from heaters, it’s important that we master our winter skin care early and get into a moisture-balancing routine before the worst is upon us. Here’s our list of our favourite mineral makeup products to help keep your skin hydrated.
SMOOTH AFFAIR BRIGHTENING FACE PRIMER
To give your makeup a long-lasting base, make sure you add a moisture-rich primer under your foundation. Smooth Affair Brightening Face Primer helps maintain the skin’s youthful elasticity and minimise pores and fine lines while contributing to your skin’s natural radiance.
D2O Hydration Spray is a multi-purpose facial spray, which can be used on its own or before makeup to deliver immediate moisture or used to set minerals for a long-lasting, flawless finish.
Our creamy Glow Time Blush Sticks can be applied over or under minerals for a natural or more dramatic look. This blush is hydrating and easy to glide on to create a radiant flush that’s soft, dewy and nourishing. It can also be used on the eyes and lips.
LIPDRINK LIP BALM SPF 15
To keep lips feeling soft and supple this season add LipDrink® Lip Balm with SPF 15. This luscious, petroleum-free, tinted lip balm is an all-in-one moisturiser that works to protect, soften and soothe chapped lips.
