Upgrading your winter makeup? If you do anything, make sure you have these seasonal staples in your beauty cupboard.

We might be looking forward to the spring, but in reality we’re still very much in the midst of winter and our skincare still needs to reflect that. If you’re wanting to refresh your skincare or are simply replacing some products that you’ve ran out of, make sure you replace them with some of these seasonal staples. They’re items that, if you were to run out of everything else, your skin would be thankful that you still had these during this cold weather.

We’ve sung our praises about this product from Ecooking before. While exfoliating can be quite a harsh process on your skin, especially when your skin is that little bit more sensitive due to the cold air in the winter months, this peel mask will do just the trick without damaging your skin. Rather than rubbing and scrubbing at your cheeks, simply leave this little wonder on and let it do the work for you. When you wash it off your skin will have lost a layer of dead skin, similarly to how it would having been exfoliated. Don’t worry if it leaves you looking red, it means it’s working! The content of plant extract and Vitamin E in the peeling mask decreases the appearance of creases and wrinkles and at the same time it gives a smoother and younger look.

Dr Botanical’s Cocoa & Coconut Superfood Reviving Hydrating Mask hydrates, revives and nourishes tired looking skin. Pop it on for 10 minutes (using this after the above peeling mask would be great for an ultra hydrating regime)

Topical Vitamin C offers a wide array of benefits to the skin. However, many forms of Vitamin C and many more formulations of Vitamin C are available commercially with a potential to confuse the audience. We have developed a guide that offers guidance on the formulations of Vitamin C offered under The Ordinary range. It also offers education on Vitamin C itself and on the differences between formulations of Vitamin C at large.

This luxurious, lavender-infused shave cream exfoliates, moisturises, and soothes skin while minimising future hair growth.

Boosts the skin with moisture and contains an extremely high anti-ageing effect. The skin gets lots of sparkle and fine lines are minimised. Ecooking Super Serum is firming, moisturising and contains lots of active agents. This serum can also effectively be used together with Ecooking Derma Roller.

This sheet mask is enriched with the natural oils of Avocado that penetrate deep into the skin, which hydrates and repairs it while smoothing out wrinkles. It’s suitable for sensitive skin types and prevents skin irritation while protecting your skin from the elements. A sheet mask is essentially a super concentrated serum, so popping one of these on your face every week during the winter will help to keep your skin fully hydrated.

This 99% naturally made, fragranced body moisturiser blended with antioxidant rich Arctic Cloudberry and vitamin rich Shea Butter will help to deeply hydrate, calm and soften your skin. When the harsh winter weather meets with our skin it can really dry it out. Ensuring that every inch of us is protected by prevention and repair is super important. A good body lotion should definitely be part of your seasonal staples.

While you might want to pile on the thickest of foundations to keep your skin feeling better during the cold, but actually using foundation that is lighter on the skin will do you favours. This skin-improving serum foundation that creates a semi-matte finish with buildable coverage, is lightweight, with a skin-softening formula visibly improves dark spots and uneven skin tone for visibly smoother, more uniform skin over time.
