Cold-weather Beauty Essentials

collage_fotorwinter

I have been rather social media shy of these last few months so I thought a nice way of kicking it off again would be to give you an insight into my cold weather beauty essentials. Since our wedding in July, I’d not returned home to Scotland and it felt like such a long 6 months away. I had been getting a little homesick as I’m sure you’ll remember, and with our exciting baby news, I felt such a strong pull to get back here for a sense of normality, or rather, reality. I’ve been back in Edinburgh little over a week now and my skin definitely felt the shock between Dubai and here, luckily I had remembered to pack more than just warmer clothes.

Here are my 13 winter beauty essentials!

1.

vaseline-jelly

Original and still the best! This can even be used sparingly to calm down split ends. Vaseline

2.

limited-edition-creme-de-corps-whipped-body-butter-by-jeremyville-8-0-oz-kiehls-since-1851-3605971174933-front_1024x1024

I slather myself in this every evening before bed and wake up with such soft skin. My pregnancy tummy can feel so tight and itchy, but this stops it in its tracks. Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Body Butter

3.

babylips

My favourite is Pink Shock for a quick pop of colour. Maybelline Baby Lips

4.

7.

When it’s too chilly to wash your hair in the morning this will be your saviour. CoLab Dry Shampoo

9.

aesop-rosehip-seed-lip-cream

My lips often get so chapped, but this really saves them. Aesop Lip Cream

10.

bragg-apple-cider-vinegar

When my hair’s feeling a tad heavy and lacklustre I add a teaspoon of this to any leave in conditioner, wash off after 20 minutes and I’m left with super shiny waves. Just remember to rinse out thoroughly so you don’t stink afterwards. Apple cider Vinegar

11.
