Noella's Winter Skincare
By Noella Gabriel
Winter Skincare Special
Harsh winter weather can take it's toll on your skin so we asked Noella Gabriel, Director of Treatment and Product Development at Elemis how best to adjust our
winter skincare routines to stay gorgeous whatever the weather.
"Winter brings with it harsh weather, shorter days, less sunshine, and a dramatic change in diet from seasonal salads and fruits to soups and warmer food, which all has a direct impact on
The skin responds in a different way for each individual; some skins become oily, others very dehydrated and others sensitive.

Essentially, winter skincare
A few simple adjustments to your
winter skincare routine, plus a bit more TLC will keep you looking gorgeous, whatever the weather.
An extra layer under your day time protection is the perfect way to restore your glow.
Use Liquid Radiance
for one month morning and evening to help the skin adjust to the challenges of winter.
will restore skin uniformity, skin health, and feed, nourish and nurture the skin.
Phase 2 contains micro-encapsulated vitamins (A, C and E) which not only fight the signs of ageing, but ensure that the skin does not suffer hugely from our dramatic adjustment in diet from summer to winter.
Regular exfoliation (twice a week) will slough off dead skin cells and keep the skin responding and functioning at its peak.
It certainly helps to keep the summer glow and prevents
winter skin from looking dry and depleted. Try Skin Buff to
re-energise dull and lifeless skin.
The face isn't the only area to be affected by the changing seasons.
Nurturing is something I feel is more important in the winter than the summer months. It is the ideal time to run a body temperature bath (try to avoid extremes of temperature) and select your favourite bathtime treat.
For super soft winter skin use
Skin Nourishing Milk Bath or to relax and unwind
Quiet Mind Relaxing Bath Elixir.
While the skin is warm and soft perform your home facial ritual within the cosiness and warmth of your own bathroom.
Apply a fine layer of Papaya Enzyme
Peel, leave on for 5-6 minutes and remove with a warm flannel with 2 drops of
Lavender Essential Oil on it, roll down over the face, inhale deeply and remove. Then apply a fine layer of a moisturising mask such as
Exotic Cream Moisturising Mask - ideally leave it on overnight to be absorbed, but if not remove and finally apply your
Pro-Collagen Marine Cream.
Hands are exposed to a lot of aggression and the good news is they respond to a little TLC.
Once a week exfoliate with Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow 410gms and apply a fine layer of
Exotic Frangipani Monoi Moisture Melt and seal it with Intensive Hand Repair. This will ensure your hands come through the winter looking glowing and cared for.
Feet - don't leave feet till May or June then complain they are not ready for the open toe sandals!
A regular pedicure is a wonderful treat during the winter months and exceeds all in the feel good factor when feet look manicured, polished and nurtured.
Exfoliate with Devils Mint Body Scrub then apply
Instant Refreshing Gel, and nourish with
Exotic Frangipani Monoi Moisture Melt.
With the above winter skincare and attention you will sail through the winter months without the withdrawal of the long hazy days of summer and will be very ready to expose yourself from top-to-toe once the sun begins to shine!"
