Cold Weather Skincare Favourites

Collaborative Post
It's been a little chilly here in the UK hasn't it? Yes, despite March usually marking 'the start of spring' we were hit with a ton of snow and the aptly named Beast from the East. Instagram was rife with beautiful snowy scenes, cute kids building snowmen and fashion bloggers braving the cold in outfits you definitely wouldn't wear in the snow...erm where were your big coats and wellies guys?! We had our own snow fun and built Arthur's very first snowman but I have to say, the cold weather has left my sensitive skin feeling a little worse for wear. With this in mind, I thought I'd share some of the skincare products that  have been helping me to battle the cold and soothe my skin!

Sanctuary Spa Therapist's Secret Facial Oil
I really enjoy using healthy oils as part of my skincare routine. The Therapist's Secret Facial Oil from Sanctuary Spa is great for adding moisture to the skin, which is something I've really needed this past week or so. I usually apply it after I've cleansed (and toned - depending on whether I've been lazy or not) both in the morning and the evening. It's definitely helped to keep my skin hydrated and gives it a lovely dewy glow. You only need to use a couple of drops at a time, so it lasts a good while and can be applied under makeup.

Botanics All Bright Hydrating Day Cream
Botanics is a brand I'm really quite loyal to - I've been using their skincare products for years and find they really suit my skin. Their skincare is reasonably priced and there's different ranges to target different skin issues. The All Bright Hydrating Day Cream is a lovely light moisturiser that hydrates the skin and leaves it feeling silky smooth. It contains hibiscus extract, known for skin brightening and also has added UV protection. I love applying this over my Sanctuary Facial Oil and also use the night cream, which is slightly heavier, in the evenings.

Soap and Glory Hand Dream Super Cream
My hands definitely suffer in cold weather so I've been taking extra care to apply hand cream and keep them soft. I was never a huge fan of Hand Food by Soap and Glory but I love their Hand Dream Super Cream. It's really moisturising without being overly greasy (the problem I had with Hand Food) and has a lovely light scent. It's described as an intensive hand cream and seems to last a good while on the hands, though I do like to top it up throughout the day. I'm not sure why I can no longer find this on the Boots and Soap and Glory websites? I've had it a fair while, so I'm wondering if it's been discontinued, which is a shame. Having said this, I think it's available on Amazon, so worth having a search for!

Burt's Bees Baby Bee Multipurpose Ointment
I've also been mindful of the cold weather's affect on Arthur's skin and have been using this multipurpose ointment from the Burt's Bees Baby Bee range to keep him soft and smooth. What I like about this multipurpose ointment is that it actually creates a barrier on the skin, which is particularly effective in cold weather conditions, as it helps to prevent dryness. I find that it has instant results and feel confident using it all over his skin, as it's 100% natural and doesn't contain any nasties. In the past I've also used it on his nappy area to prevent nappy rash and find it works a treat.

Do you have any cold weather skincare favourites of your own?
