At this time of year, my skin is in need of some major TLC. For me, winter usually results in dry skin and nails and I need to do some major moisturising, salving, soothing rehab to get everything back up to scratch. I’ve tried a range of different products, both expensive and inexpensive and I’ve settled on a great rotation now that not only works but is readily available (like, from the supermarket readily available!) and it’s so cheap. Which is a good thing as I tend to use these products so much that I will churn through them a fair bit during winter.
So, what’s currently saving me from dry skin and nails? These affordable buys that I give an A+ for efficacy.
Winter is notorious for giving me cracked heels so I need to moisturise with something intensive to get them looking okay again. I use this balm daily and it’s great at softening and exfoliating dry skin and I can usually see results pretty quickly Plus I love the fact it’s non-greasy.
Wearing nail polish is super drying on my nails so I apply this to nourish them and give them a big injection of moisture. My toe nails in particular get dried out from all the nail polish I wear on them so while we’re in lockdown, I’m going sans polish to try and nourish them and get them looking in good shape again.
I slather this on religiously during winter to combat dry skin. I’ve found it’s great to put it on just right out of the shower when skin is a little damp as it helps the lotion penetrate a bit better. It also has a really nice scent so it feels luxe when I put it on (even when the price tag is so, so affordable).
Who isn’t a fan of this skin saviour? It’s just so good! My lips are constantly feeling dry and chapped so I often apply this to them to combat cracking and flaking. It’s quite inexpensive so I usually have one at home and carry around another tube in my handbag so I’m able to reapply when I’m on the go.
