Beat dry, dull winter skin

Every year when the temperature drops, my skin barrier goes a bit dry and dull. Thankfully there are some fairly incredible products available to help. It is also important to remember to bookend your active skincare too as your skin can be quite tender during the wind and rain.


The H A Intensifier (€105) is a multi-beneficial corrective serum proven to amplify skin’s hyaluronic acid levels. This unique formulation contains a high concentration of pure hyaluronic acid, proxylane, and botanical extracts of licorice root and purple rice to support skin’s hyaluronic acid levels and deliver surface hydration, helping improve the visible appearance of firmness, smoothness, and facial plumpness. I use it daily after my vitamin C and at night under a thick moisturiser.

The Emollience (€70) is formulated with an exclusive combination of natural extracts and essential oils making it a rich, restorative face moisturiser for dry skin and sensitive skin types.

This face moisturizer features an elegant, gentle formula and an easy application texture. It immediately nourishes and hydrates the skin.It quickly restores and maintains skin moisture levels. Absorbs quickly and evenly. It is the perfect night cream to seal in H A Intensifier.

La Roche Posay

La Roche-Posay Pure Vitamin C10 Serum (€43) is a lightweight face serum that helps to prevent and correct the appearance of ageing. Ideal for those with wrinkles, dull skin and uneven tone, the fresh, non-greasy essence melts quickly into skin, releasing a surge of beneficial ingredients to leave the face feeling softer, more hydrated and glowing. Pure vitamin C harnesses anti-wrinkle and antioxidant properties, lending skin visible radiance and glow, while hyaluronic acid plumps skin with moisture to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Deeply hydrating and skin-smoothing, use in the morning for a bright skin make up base.

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermallergo Cream (€21) is a soothing moisturiser to help hydrate skin while minimising signs of sensitivity such as dryness, tightness and itchiness. It’s perfect for ultra-sensitive skin types. Blended with the brand’s thermal spring water, the cream lends instant hydration and comfort to stressed-out complexions. Use it at night for the ultimate comfort.
