Winter is a time of year where coats and jumpers are a must have and sleep-ins are divine. Winter can also be an enemy to your skin, making it feel dry, irritated and raw. Things that make winter amazing such as hot showers and sitting by the heater or a fire can strip your skin of its natural oils.
So what can you do to help your skin this winter? Read on for some tips and tricks so you can feel and look your best this winter.
Opt for gentle cleansers
Wash your face with a moisturising cleanser. Cleansing is a critical part of your skincare routine and our range of cleansers gently cleanse and exfoliate your skin without drying or stripping your skin of its natural oils.
- Petitgrain PH Balancing Cream Cleanser: Nourishing Shea Butter helps soothe the skin, while organic Petitgrain and May Chang tone and clarify pores, leaving you feeling hydrated, clean and fresh.
- Papaya Enzymatic Foaming Daily Cleanser: This lightweight, velvety foam uses the natural rejuvenating and regenerating properties of the papain enzyme, found in Papaya fruit, to dissolve dead skin cells without irritating new cells or stripping the skin’s protective barrier.
Stay away from products containing alcohol
Many astringents contain alcohol which can cause dry skin. Which is why skincare products and fragrances at Vanessa Megan contain ZERO alcohol. Helping you to further retain natural oil and moisture in your skin.

Take care of your lips
In winter, lips can get dry, flaky and even bleed if not treated properly. Always ensure you are moisturising your lips to keep them plump, hydrated and feeling soft and smooth. Soothe and moisturise your lips with our nourishing Mandarin and Basil Organic Lip Balm to keep your lips perfect in winter.
Limit shower temperature and moisturise your body
As tempting as it is to take boiling hot showers in winter, your skin will hate you for it. Try a lukewarm shower instead to avoid aggravating your skin. We also often forget to moisturise our bodies in winter as we don’t expose much skin, it is important to always ensure your entire body is moisturised, especially your hands! Excessive washing of hands in winter to avoid germs can cause them to be extremely dry so moisturise, moisturise, moisturise!!
- Peruvian Flower Nourishing Hand and Body Cream: Get intensely moisturised, firm skin with this award-winning hand and body cream, fortified with organic oils and butters to combat dry skin and deeply nourish without leaving a greasy residue.
There you have it! Now you’re ready to brace winter with immaculate and hydrated skin!
