This month, I’m going to keep things simple. As we battle the elements – namely the bitter cold weather and the damp weather – I thought I’d come up with some suggestions as to how to combat the elements with the help of six products. I’m not suggestIng you use all six at once! But I reckon by pairing these up they turn into formidable Dynamic Duos which well tackle any winter worries.

Skin Recovery is dreamy – seriously easy to use and you’ll achieve absolute hydration and help defend against the internal and external causes of skin aging with this medium-weight, emollient daily moisturiser with Broad Spectrum SPF50.
