It's easier to ignore or neglect our skin when it's covered up by layers of warm clothing, but even those of us with normally healthy skin can suffer in the dry winter months. You can help your skin through winter by nourishing it with a weekly DIY day spa ritual.

1. Dry skin brush
Start with a full body dry skin brush using a natural fibre brush. This will assist in exfoliating dead skin cells and preparing the body for the next step.

2. Hot bath or shower
Take a long hot soak in the tub or a long hot shower if you don't have a bath. This will further assist in loosening and softening dead skin in preparation for the next step.

3. Body scrub
Immediately following your bath, or while still in the bath, give your body a full and vigorous oil based scrub. This will remove any remaining dead and dry skin, leaving your skin fully nourished and moisturised. Rinse the scrub off in a warm shower.

4. Facial
Cleanse and tone your face as you normally would then apply a nourishing face mask, rinse, and finish off with some essential oils for the face in a soft oil base. Last but not least nourish your lips with a homemade vanilla and honey lip balm or homemade cocoa lip balm. And if you're heading straight to bed, apply some homemade deep sleep balm to the feet for a super softening and moisturising effect.

It doesn't have to take a great deal of time and money to care for our skin in winter. Simply be kind enough to yourself to make the time for some self-care, your skin will thank you.
