Winter friends



Hope you’re all keeping warm and healthy in this cold Cape Town weather. As winter is fast approaching, it’s time to talk about your skin and how to keep it moisturised during these cold months that are ahead of us.

For me, the first place that suffers in winter is my hands. They really don’t like the cold Cape Town weather, and I find myself having to cover them with hand cream many times a day.

Nivea Express Hydration Hand Cream

This hand cream from Nivea is perfect for the winter months as it really lives up to its name and hydrates your paws super fast. The hydrated feeling lasts for a whole lot longer than I’ve found with other hand creams, so this baby is a winner and has a permanent place on my bedside table (I don’t know about you, but going to sleep with dry hands is my worst)


Apart from dry hands, the other thing that suffers in winter is my skin.  I find that I need to use a super moisturising cream every day, and I have to add in a hydrating mask to make sure my skin stays happy.

Eau Thermale Avene Soothing Moisture Mask

This mask has been a staple in my life for a good few months now. I use it about once a week, applying it just before going to bed and yes I totally sleep with it on. In the morning when washing it off, my skin is soft, hydrated and just happy.


What products do you swear by in order to keep hydrated and happy during winter?

Let me know!
