Ah, winter. The magical season when harsh winds, nipping frosts, low humidity and central heating have you so sniffly you do little else but dream of warmer climates.
Besides the never-ending ailments (and you can check out the supplement section for cold-busting remedies) this tundra-esque time also wreaks havoc on your skin, stripping it of its natural oils and evaporating most of its surface water. One inevitably ends up a dry, dehydrated and patchy vision of one’s former glowing self.
Fortunately, a slew of strong creams exist to combat those chapped cheeks. Winter moisturisers act as a second skin that protects, nourishes and restores your dermis to its former summertime glory. While many moisturisers are a simple salve of humectants and hyaluronic acid, there are a few, below, that go that extra mile – and in winter, you need all the endurance you can get.
