“Winter can play havoc with our skins overall condition. Humidity decreases, cold temperatures and winds increase and this in itself can cause our skin to lose essential oil moisture and water hydration, which can leave our skin feeling mildly tight and uncomfortable or extremely dry, rough, red and irritated.
Antipodes Avocado oil & Rosehip Divine Face Oil is the perfect fix.
It is a nutrient-rich face oil that gives a lift to tired, stressed skin and helps to deliver antioxidants and essential nourishment for fresh, healthy skin.
It’s also scientifically shown to stimulate synthesis of collagen production in human skin cells by up to 51%”

“Keep showers at moderate temperatures. Hot showers wreak havoc on dry winter skin & lips.
Keep the temperature lukewarm. Apply moisturiser or even better a natural oil to the skin immediately after your shower.
This is the best time to hydrate your body. Don’t forget your lips, I use my Karen Murrell Moisture Stick on my lips and on any dry areas that need extra attention.”

“My winter survival tip would have to be comfort, warmth, and practicality.
My Jasmine Slippers are my staple go-to pair of flats in all seasons, but are particularly useful in the winter months when I need to dash in and out during cold wet weather.
Being snakeskin they naturally repel any water so i don’t need to worry if I accidentally get them wet.
They are so versatile and can be worn with any type of clothing giving you practicality, comfort, and luxury.”

“Nothing makes us smile more than seeing lots of colour in the middle of winter. The monotonous grey, dreary days of winter need not leave you feeling flat and dreaming of a tropical island holiday escape – although that is always lovely.
Introducing lots of happy chic colours to wardrobe can do wonders to your spirit; especially if those colours are your most harmonious.
You’ll feel better, look fresh and be complimented wherever you go. Plus, by wearing more colour you will make others feel happy too. We say never shy from colour it’s one of the best ways to visually communicate with everyone!”
