In summer, we all love to generously slather ourselves in tasty, coconut-scented moisturisers and body lotions to keep our tan looking better for longer. But in winter, the whole process doesn’t seem quite so appealing; covering yourself in cold cream when you would rather jump straight into your fleece pyjamas after a shower instead. But winter is when it’s most important to keep this process up. A combination of cold weather and hot showers can leave your skin feeling scalded and dehydrated. Here are some skin saviours you need to know about!
