Woman with dry skin


Any busy woman loves a versatile beauty product and Roullier White Mrs White’s Classic Cold Cream is just that. This luxurious Cold Cream is based on Roman physician Galen’s formula from 150AD! Mrs White’s takes even the most stubborn make-up off in one easy process and also works as a night cream. For radiance, try Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip oil. This moisturiser has won countless awards and has stand-out reviews. It’s been clinically proven to minimise wrinkles and create smoother skin. This product can be used on your body as well as your face. Another excellent product for dry, chapped skin is Jurlique’s Soothing Herbal Recovery Gel. Layered under your makeup, it soothes and protects your skin against the winter elements! Use it day or night and apply to your face, neck and decolletage.


You may be hiding your legs under jeans and leggings but as soon as you rip them off, you’ll be faced with dry skin on your pins. Regular moisturising is essential but there are products that really do a fabulous job of keeping your legs looking lovely. Try Roullier White Mrs White’s Legs Eleven. Not only does it keep your skin happy, it does wonders for your feet after a long night in stillettos! For the rough spots (knees, elbows, feet and hands), you may need something heavy-duty. Have a look at Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Concentrated Cream. Another great multi-tasker is Trilogy Everything Balm. This little beauty can be used on cracked heels, elbows, hands, chapped lips – the works! For an all-over moisturiser to stop the shrivel, sample Nivea Express Hydration Body Moisturiser. It’s good value and does a great job.


There’s nothing worse than dry, chapped lips. It hurts and looks unsightly. Always make sure you have a remedy at hand to stop the dry lips getting worse. Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm is a good one to keep in your handbag. It’s all natural and keeps your lips soft and smooth. You could also try Kiehls Lip Balm #1, a favourite the world over. If you’d prefer something with a bit of colour, look for Benefit lip balm SPF 15. The rose tint and smell is gorgeous. Another great product is L’Occitane Limited Edition Hibiscus Flower Organic Shea Lip Balm. Beautiful and creamy with an intoxicating scent.
