It's time to prep our winter skin care and prioritise those all important 'Self Care Sundays.'
Anyone else feeling like they need a little lift this January? Whilst we try and beat the January blues, and battle against the cold and rain; there's no better time to upgrade our winter skincare routine to leave our skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated, despite the weather.
Our founder Lorna, is a self-confessed skincare obsessive, so there's no denying that she knows her stuff when it comes to navigating the 100’s of skincare and beauty products available on the market. Here, we dissect her ultimate tips and tricks for winter skincare and beauty must haves, tried and tested by Lorna herself, so you don’t have to.
Lorna's Best Skincare Products This Winter
Oskia Renaissance Mask
“it’s a sort of spa in a jar if you like, packed with fruit acids and enzymes to immediately brighten and rejuvenate dull and lacklustre skin”
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Skin Protectant
“I have to include this as I have tubes of it stashed everywhere. This is an absolute OG of skincare… it’s a versatile formula that goes beyond moisturisation, working wonders to shape brows, add shine to cheeks, soothe dry hands, smooth cuticles and repairs nails."
Perricone MD Cold Plasma Eye Cream
“In my humble opinion, this is the best clinic grade option on the market. I’ve tried some amazing offerings, but for price and bang for buck, nothing comes close to this”
Aurelia Collagen Shots
“The ultimate lazy girls approach to collagen with zero fuss. These liquid formula shots are packed with hyaluronic, peptides, vitamin C, vitamin E, and more. Boosting collagen is the quickest way to younger, softer skin”
Shani Darden Déssee LED Light Mask
“I suffer with slight redness on my chin and cheeks so LED therapy has changed my life in recent years”
reasons to love it 101:
- it works in 10 minutes, making it a quick and easy way to amp up your skin care routine.
- the red light travels deep into the skin to boost collagen.
- the 3 programs are designed to diminish fine likes and wrinkles, clear inflammatory acne, target hyperpigmentation.
- it’s proven to help boost your mood, lower stress, and aid sleep.
YSL Lash Mascara
“Why is nobody talking about how amazing this mascara is? Please don’t sleep on it, I stock up and get nervous when I’m down to my last tube”
However, it’s not just skincare that we need to look at this winter, but total self care too. From those self care Sundays to recharge and renew, to purchasing your favourite self care products for you or a loved one, here are a few ideas to make sure you are feeling pampered this winter.
What’s on Lorna’s current wish list:
A facial at Omerovicza in Mayfair…
This prescriptive treatment which includes therapeutic massage “is the talk of town right now”, and available at their iconic institute on South Audley Street.
A biosculpture mani/pedi at DryBy in Fitzrovia…
“My go to person, Megan, is the queen of cuticles and impossibly difficult to get booked in with but the absolute best.”
A hair appointment at Hadley Yates…
“Hadley is famous for hair extensions and will make any lacklustre bonce look the absolute most. His cool yet understated salon in Sevendials serves the who’s who of stage and screen, his client list is star studded, and for good reason”
A day at the Lanesborough hotel spa...
“A decadent and discrete space with a feeling of exclusivity that’s unrivalled in London, this is the best kept secret in town”
Winter skincare and self care are so important this time of year to keep us feeling our best, whilst we patiently wait for the sun to stay out later heading into spring.
As well as upgrading your beauty regime, why not upgrade your living space with cosy winter decor such as our No.98 Ghost Candles, or stay warm and cosy on those self care days in our elevated women's winter knitwear range.
