The temperature has suddenly dropped and so I thought it would be the perfect time to share a few of my favourite winter essentials with you.
We’ve also hit mid January which is always a difficult time for keeping on track with our New Years’ Resolutions – so I’ve also included a few products which will help you with a mid January boost!
As a therapist so many clients and friends ask me what is the best lip balm on the market and I must say I find this one of the best. Most lip balms just sit on the surface and are quite thick in texture so it may give you the feeling that it is moisturizing but it is actually doing opposite and making the problem worse.
The Ruby Red Honey & Vanilla lip balm is full of active plant ingredients organically certified olive oil and shea butter leaving the lip smooth and hydrated
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans
This is my winter rescuer! And a must have! It makes your skin look great and smells amazing. This product is a 3 in 1 product which is an added bonus. It is designed as a cleanser, mask and treatment for lips, elbows and dry areas. It is great for all skin types including dry and sensitive.
I love to use this product as a mask. You simply use a small amount all over face and neck and when you wake up you skin looks lovely and hydrated and glowing. It also helps with scarring. It is a great product to have around winter as it give you more moisturizing properties than your usual cream
This is one of my favourite facial scrubs. You can use this all year round but it is especially great for these cold months as our skin tends to become more dry, sensitive and flakey. The Trilogy scrub will remove the layer of dead skin without leaving your skin more sensitive. Best to scrub once a week and will make you skin glowing and hydrated. Also by removing a layer of dead skin it makes your moisturiser more effective as you can’t moisturise dead skin.
It is exactly what it says on the package, this gives the skin extra hydration especially in winter. It is great for those who fly a lot and for those of you who are hitting the ski slopes – they are easy to travel with as they come in individual capsules. It contains anti-oxidents and vitamin A which will also protect your skin from the environment and improves cell regeneration. You just apply overnight under your moisturizer and wake up to super hydrated skin.

This 10 day Healthy start pack is great to help remove all those toxins we have consumed over the past couple of months either from alcohol or rich foods. It is always great to do a body cleanse every 3 months if not at least once a year and January is a great way to start.
You won’t drop a dress size straight away but by removing the toxins which grab onto fat and by clearing your internal system it will put you on the right track. No special diet is required but results are enhanced if you avoid alcohol, caffeine and red meat.

For me Lemon and Ginger tea is a must have in winter as this delicious tea will helps fight off the Flu and colds. It is also great for all ages and has been used as a natural remedy for centuries (Do we really know what they put in our cold and flu medicines nowadays?) It is better if you are able to make this at home from the raw ingredients and adding honey but as most of us have a busy lifestyle it is always good to have a packet of this tea in your cupboard There are many Tea brands on the market but I really like QI tea’s as they are registered with the organic soil association so you know you are getting great ingredients.
