When the winter weather hits, it can be difficult to stay on top of your beauty routine. Frosty temperatures and stinging winds bring with them dried out skin and hair, while those long hot showers can strip away natural, hydrating oils.

So how do you keep healthy and hydrated? With the help of some great beauty products, of course!

We've rounded up a range of great face, body and hair products that will winter-proof your beauty routine in no time. We've also got some killer makeup items that are right on trend this season.

Face

Keeping your skin hydrated is never more important than it is during winter. Ditch harsh cleansers in favour of gentler products and consider investing in a heavy-duty night cream or face oil.

Now is also a good time to grab a gentle exfoliator to buff away dead skin and stock up on face masks to keep your skin in tip-top condition.

Body

To avoid the dreaded lizard skin look this season, look for gentle body washes and nourishing body lotions. It's also important to give your hands and nails some extra TLC, as they typically cop more exposure to the winter chill than the rest of your body.

Hair

It isn't just your skin that suffers in the colder months – your hair loses its lustre too. With hot showers and icy winds stripping it of moisture, flyaways and split ends can become commonplace.

Try switching to a moisturising shampoo and conditioner or a quality hair mask to give your locks some life back. Scalp treatments can also be a great investment, as they'll rid you of any unwelcome skin flakes.

Makeup

When your skin is drier than normal, your usual foundation may not cut it. Avoid the dry, cakey look by investing in a moisturising primer and a lighter foundation. It's also a good idea to switch to waterproof eye makeup for those times when the cold makes your eyes water!

Winter is also a great excuse to try something new. Give the bronzed, summery look a break and play around instead with smokey eyes, dramatic liners and deep lipstick shades.
