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!

To help you out, we've rounded up the face, body and hair products that are guaranteed to winter-proof your beauty routine. We've also got some killer makeup products that will help you stay on trend this season.

Winter skincare for face

Keeping your skin hydrated is an absolute must during winter. We recommend ditching harsh cleansers in favour of gentler products and investing in a heavy-duty night cream or face oil.

Now is also the time to stock up on gentle exfoliators and face masks to keep skin in tip-top condition.

Winter skincare for 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.

Winter haircare

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 all too common.

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

Winter 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.

The cooler weather is also a great excuse to try a new look, so get creative with smokey eyes, dramatic liners and deep lipstick shades.
