As we all know, the harsh winter weather can have all kinds of effects on skin.. which is why it’s important we use the right products to help keep our skin healthy, fresh and revitalised.

There are number of products that can be used for cleansing and moisturising, however a vast majority of these products are not suitable for those who have allergies, sensitive skin or dryness.

If you have one of the above… then these products will help you combat the winter!

1. Cleansing

If you have very sensitive skin and / or have known allergies with certain perfumes / toiletries then it is important that use fragrance free cleansers.

Simple are one of the first major brands in the UK to cater for those with allergies. They have a range of excellent products to gently cleanse the skin without the use of harsh chemicals that can cause redness, irritation or blotchiness.

They have a large range of products, here’s some I would recommend:

Simple Kind to Skin Facial wipes – Vitamin B5 enriched wipes that gently cleanse the face; removing dirt, oil and make-up easily. They leave the face feeling fresh and clean.

Simple Clear Skin Oil Balancing Facial Scrub – If you are prone to oily skin, even in winter then try this facial scrub. It is packed with Vitamins and Minerals… it is also includes Witch Hazel, giving you the benefits of an exfoliating cleanser while maintaining your skins natural Ph levels and removing any excess oils. This is also suitable for those with combination skin (but more oily then dry).

Simple Kind to Skin Moisturising Facial Wash – If like myself, you have dry skin that particularly suffers this time of year, try this nourishing facial wash. It still removes dirt from the pores but leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth. Personally, I like using this first thing in the morning as it sets the skin up for the rest of the day as well as last thing at night.

2. Moisturising

Again I would advise avoiding the use of any heavily perfumed products when applying a moisturiser to your skin, particularly after cleansing as this can cause a reaction if you have sensitive skin or allergies.

Simple Oily Skin Moisturiser – this Vitamin, Zinc and Corn Starch enriched moisturiser gives you the added benefits of an oil control cleanser while keeping the skin soft and moisturised. When using this product, apply a thin layer over the whole face (avoiding the eye area) and gently rub in a circular motion into the skin. You won’t need a huge amount to get the desired effect.

Simple Kind to Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturiser – great for dry skin, this moisturiser is loaded with Vitamins, Minerals and UV filters to give your skin the best protection against the elements. Apply fairly generously but ensure you are easily able to rub the product into the skin without excess.

Quick Tip…

… if you are looking for a product to give you an extra boost of vitality true using the Simple Radiance Brightening Eye Cream. It is packed with Vitamins, Mango extract, Ginkgo and Shea Butter which softens, smoothes and brightens the whole eye area.
