Slather up – five must have winter skin care products

If you don’t fancy returning to work after a snow holiday with face dandruff then try these skin care products on for size. The only flakes we want this winter are snow flakes.

Zinc it up

The snow acts as a reflector for the sun. If you don’t wear sunscreen then you may as well put your face up to  a nuclear reactor for all the good it will do you. We love Invisible Zinc’s 4 Hour Water Resistant cream because it is for tough outdoorsy type folk and the SPF is 50, which is like cryptonite to super man. RRP$21.95

Protect yourself

You wouldn’t ski or snowboard without a helmet unless you had a death wish so why ski or snowboard with a bare naked face? That sweet visage of yours needs protection too. That’s where Dermalogica’s Barrier Repair comes in. Think of it as a helmet for your face with Mohammed Ali punching powers to keep all those bad environmental pests at bay. RRP$59

Say Yes to Carrots

We love this all natural product filled with all the goodness of carrot seed oil and 26 Dead Sea minerals. Just like a juice for your face. RRP$23.95
