As I’m sure most of you will know due to experiencing it yourselves, the Winter weather can play total havoc with our skin. I for one always experience dry and tight feeling skin at this time of year and I really have to up the amount of products I’m using to ensure my skin is well hydrated at all times. That involves the usual changes like using a more heavy duty moisturier, adding a face oil to the mix and occasionally overnight face masks for that extra moisture boost.
However, one thing a lot of people forget is that the skin on our body suffers just as much throughout the Winter months as the skin on our face so it’s really important to look after it with just as much care. With this being said, I thought I’d share a few products from one of my favourite high street brands Soap & Glory that will help tackle that dry Winter skin with ease. I’ve been a huge fan of S&G products for years now – they have awesome packaging, smell amazing and do exactly what they say they’ll do on the bottle. There’s a few stand out products for me when it comes to keeping the skin on my body looking its best and hydrated throughout the Winter months (well, all year long but especially at this time of the year) so I thought I’d share them with you guys.
First up is a long standing favourite of mine, the Sugar Crush body scrub. This stuff has been one of my go-to products for years now as it smells so damn good. It’s citrusy and sugary and will be sure to brighten up any dark and dreary Winter morning as well as making your skin feel super smooth and rid of any dry patches. Next up are two products you can use after the Sugar Crush scrub to give your newly smooth and exfoliated skin some moisture – the Whipped Clean Shower Butter and another one of my all time favourite Soap & Glory products, The Righteous Butter body butter. The shower butter is perfect for those of you find body moisturising a bit tedious and want a quick fix. You can use it in the shower to both clean and moisturize your body in one go! It contains various oils as well as cocoa and shea butter so it will leave your skin feeling silky smooth after showering. It’s also fragranced with pistachio, almond and sweet vanilla – yum! If you prefer a heavier moisturizer, need a double whammy of moisture for super dry skin or just simply enjoy applying a body butter, that’s where The Righteous Butter comes in handy. It’s a thick body butter so super moisturising on the skin but it sinks in fairly quickly and doesn’t feel sticky which I love. Like most Soap & Glory products, it also smells incredible.
Finally, it’s important not to forget about your hands and feet – they need moisturising too! Luckily, Soap & Glory also have that covered and I’m a big fan of their Hand Food hand cream and Heel Genius foot cream. You can usually always find the hand cream in bag as my hands especially are really prone to dryness at this time of year. Both of these products smell sugary sweet and the cream sinks in really quickly leaving my hands and feet feeling hydrated and smooth in a matter of minutes. If you’re suffering from really dry hands or feet, you can layer these on underneather gloves or socks for an even deeper moisturising treatment.
So they’re my Soap & Glory Winter skin saviours that will tackle dry skin with ease. I’d love to know what yours are so do let me know in the comment below. Also, if you’re a fan of the brand, you may be excited to hear that they’re touring the entire country from Friday 13th November - Tuesday 22nd December alongside gorgeous signer Florrie Arnold. They will be helping girls across the UK shake up their look for the Christmas party season with Soap and Glory’s very own Glory Girls – a handpicked team of talented hair and makeup artists (and all round fabulous girls) who can sing, dance and help you look and feel fabulous ahead of that big night out over the festive season.
