As the cold air, heat from the fire, free radicals, hot showers and icy temperatures play havoc on our skin, the IMAGE staffers swap their skincare saviours for relieving dry and itchy skin.
Seoulista Super Hydration Instant Facial Sheet Mask, €8.99
I just switched to ALL Penneys skincare. I am also pretty much permanently wearing a sheet mask these days. I continue to have acne and have been on antibiotics etc, then did a whole switch to La Roche Posay with nothing working but I’m loving Penneys now. Sophie White, Acting Editor of IMAGE.ie
Dermalogica Calm Water Gel, €50.80
This is a weightless water gel with a new innovation called “dual hyaluronic acid technology” which means it works in different skin layers to lock in moisture. It’s rich in vitamins and minerals and helps to soften skin, smooth the skin’s texture and calm redness and sensitivity. It floods and the skin with moisture and feels like you’re giving your skin a drink of water. Holly O’Neill, IMAGE Beauty Writer
La Mer Lip Balm, €60
After a week in minus 20 degrees in Chicago my lips were destroyed, chapped, dry. I tried EVERYTHING.
Nothing worked until IMAGE editor Rosie told me about this La Mer miracle cure. Within two applications the balm made my lips moist and all cracked skin disappeared! I use it every day now as prevention. Clodagh Edwards, IMAGE CEO
Pommade Divine Nature’s Remedy Balm, €28
This is my pot of gold. It’s like 8 Hour Cream but more natural. It was my night mask and skin protector for a Kilimanjaro climb last year too. Sarah Murphy, IMAGE Publications Events Manager
Perfectly Pure Extra Virgin Pure Coconut Oil, €11.99
I currently have zero skincare saviours bar coconut oil for eczema. Sophie Teyssier, IMAGE Social Media Manager
Garnier Miracle Anti Ageing Sleeping Face Cream, €8.49
I’m currently using this Garnier Sleeping Cream – it’s a bit greasy when it goes on first but it’s so good for fighting heat from the fire. Grace McGettigan, Staff Writer at IMAGE.ie
