The key products to save your skin on all those long walks

Cocoon your skin ahead of long winter walks with these mega-moisture-giving beauty products 


Winter is coming, and with it comes dull, dry skin. Pair that with the only fun coming your way from now until who knows when – a brisk, cold walk – and you have the recipe for chapping, cracking, flaking, sore skin in need of nourishment.

Not to worry. What you need is rich, moisturising products that will leave your skin feeling supple and juicy, whether you’re facing a winter of chapped cheeks from blustery winds or itchy dryness from sitting all day in central heating. These five hero products will keep you smoothed and soothed.

Sunday Riley Ice Ceramide Moisturiser, €69

Sunday Riley’s new intensive moisturiser not only protects your skin against environmental aggressors, but it comes with ceramides and vitamin F to maintain lipid levels and strengthen your skin’s natural moisture barrier. It’s also formulated with coconut, which helps to reduces water loss to keep your skin hydrated and smooth.Skingredients Skin Good Fats - Moisturiser - Meaghers Pharmacy Ireland

Skingredients Skin Good Fats, €42

Jennifer Rock’s incredible Skingredients range includes this nourishing ceramides moisturiser that has anti-inch properties, calms the skin and comes packed with vitamins and ceramides and other good fats to boost your skin’s protective barrier and keep it balanced.

Avène Hydrance Aqua Gel, €22.50

As the name suggests, this is a water-gel texture, packed with Avène’s Thermal Spring Water. It can be worn in a light layer during the day or a thicker layer at night as a sleeping mask that’ll make you wake up looking like you’ve had eight hours sleep, even if you haven’t. It is mega hydrating and soothing, but it has actives too: it contains an antioxidant to protect the skin from free radicals, plus it detoxifies and decongests your skin. The gel sinks into your skin, plumping everything up, leaving the skin glossy and wet-looking but not greasy.

Murad Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture, €75

This Murad moisturiser gives me the skin I imagine I would have if I had been drinking three litres of water every day for my whole life. It’s a rich texture that feels lightweight on the skin, helps the skin retain water and contains shea butter, avocado, sunflower and olive fruit oils to keep skin looking juicy, supple and plump.

products

Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream, €72.58

The Rich Cream from Augustinus Bader’s cult creams is for normal to dry skin and The Cream is for more combination and oily types. Both are equally effective but have different textures. The Rich Cream is a winter staple – it’s luxurious and feels deeply hydrating. The Augustinus Bader active ingredient TFC8 leaves skin restored and regenerated, while argan oil, avocado oil and evening primrose oil replenish the skin for soft, soothed, suppleness.
