Autumn may still be in full swing, but Winter isn’t far behind, and although the change of season can be tough on us (horrid dark mornings? No thanks) it can play havoc with our skin. Not only are we faced with little sunlight (thus, a serious lack of vitamin D), when the harsh wind, rain and cold weather sets in, our favourite winter activity tends to sway towards going back inside… Regrettably, hibernating isn’t an option for us regular folk, therefore we’ve got to make a conscious effort to shield our skin efficiently by taking our skincare routine up a notch. If your Summer glow is becoming a distant memory, don’t fret! Today we’re talking you through some of our current favourite Winter skin saviours that work wonders in cold climates; acting as your skin’s own personal time machine to restore it back to its pre-Winter prime – no lizard-like skin to be seen here, ladies!
Magnitone London Go Bare Vibra-Sonic Daily Cleansing + Skin Toning Brush
Leaving the office when it looks like it’s midnight outside is not the highlight of Winter, and the last thing you want to be thinking about is an extensive skincare routine when you get home. Removing makeup is the best part of the day. Granted. However, that’s not to say it has to take you all night to do so. This cleansing brush from Magnitone has been a true skin saviour for removing a day’s worth of grime quickly – we just can’t get enough! After a hard slog at the office, you’re going to want something with minimal effort, and this skin sensation is six times more effective than hands alone. The vibra-sonic technology has a unique combination of sonic oscillations and pulsed vibrations for effective, deep cleansing in just 60 seconds. This technique works deep down where no hands can get; removing impurities out of pores and boosting micro-circulation. This Limited Edition also includes the brand’s most luxurious post-cleanse, skin-toning brush head – ‘The Stimulator’; designed with rounded silicone bristles to enhance skin-stimulation and increase the absorption of skincare potions. Also, how gorgeous is the limited-edition Serenity Blue shade for Christmas?
