WINTER BODY AND HAIRCARE TRIED AND TESTED

By Amelia Bell, 1 January 2019

With temperatures dipping fast and vitamin D a distant memory, your daily moisturiser isn’t the only thing that needs switching up – hands, hair, body and even feet suffer the cold-weather consequences, too.

To help you face up to the worst winter can throw at you, I’ve put some strong seasonal contenders through their paces – from green tea-infused hand masks to invigorating coffee scrubs, via a body lotion that’ll make you wonder how you ever survived winter before. And just like that, the new year is off to a good start already.

Buriti oil is the magic ingredient powering Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturizing Shampoo. Known as an excellent natural antioxidant, buriti oil’s emollient properties help rebuild and moisturise. What does that mean for my hair? I can feel the difference – shinier, softer, more supple – after just one wash (for someone who frequently dyes their hair, that means a lot).

Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion on ASOS  | ASOS Style Feed

As its name suggests, Ameliorate’s body lotion has the ability to transform to dry skin. The exfoliating treatment intensively conditions and resurfaces the uppermost layers of your skin. I couldn’t recommend this one more – no fancy packaging, no fuss, simply a hero product that will stay by your side all winter long.

Frank Body Coffee Scrub  | ASOS Style Feed

In need of a post-New Year's Eve boost? Aussie brand Frank Body’s coffee scrub not only deeply exfoliates skin, but the Robusta ground coffee beans will leave you feeling just as energised as after a morning espresso. This is just the thing, I found at least, if party season has finally caught up with you.

Sister & Co Lip Tonic on ASOS  | ASOS Style Feed

Vitamin-packed avocado, almond oils and coconut mean that the Sister & Co. Lip Tonic is extra hydrating. Then there’s the beeswax, which seals in all the moisture and provides a protective layer against the chill – and, finally, the cardamom and rose (the source of its amazing scent).

Buried, for the most part, under extra-thick wool socks, it's all too easy to neglect your feet during winter. But once you try Korean brand KOCOSTAR's foot moisture pack, those days will be long gone. Made with exfoliating AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) such as glycolic acid, this treatment left my feet feeling replenished and ready to take on 2019.

Dr.Jart + Ceramidin Body Butter  | ASOS Style Feed

Think of this as body butter with benefits. The butter-soft cream thought up by scientific skincare brand Dr.Jart+ moisturises more than most, protecting the skin’s outer layer from water loss (thanks to its ceramides). The result? My skin feels hydrated, nourished and is glowing even in the gloom of midwinter.

You’d be forgiven for thinking Le Mini Macaron’s hand and nail masks were anything but serious skincare, given their brightly-coloured, ice cream-inspired packaging. But for some proper, grown-up R&R, just pop the gloves on and wait for the coconut oil, jasmine and green tea extract to restore moisture in your hands and cuticles.
