10 tips how to look after your skin in winter

Winter – harsh winds, cold temperatures, and dry air tend to sap our skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry and stressed.

 For many people, the winter brings uncomfortable dryness to the skin of the face, hands, and feet. Some people get skin so dry it results in flaking, cracking, even eczema.

We share 10 tips how to look after your skin in winter

1) Moisturise Your Body – In winter you should use a moisturiser that’s oil-based, rather than water-based, as the oil will create a protective layer on the skin that retains more moisture than a cream or lotion.  At Amber we recommend

2) Dry Face

Face sensitive skin layers are always exposed to the cold weather in winter. We recommend avoiding the face products with alcohol, harsh peels, masks and switch to natural cleansing milk or mild foaming cleanser, a toner with no alcohol, and masks that are deeply hydrating.  Our best face products are:


Christopher Courtney Cellular Recovery Face Oil

Evolve Miracle Facial Oil with Organic Rosehip, Argan & Blackseed

Louloubelle Calendula Purifying Moisturiser

Mille Ulivi Moisturizing Day Cream

Terre Verdi Melograno Pomegranate Oil



3) Eyes

The skin around your eyes it’s thinner and more sensitive especially during the winter. The eye area is often one of the first to show the first signs of ageing, so we highly recommend using eye creams as they’re specially formulated for this thinner, more sensitive area around your eyes. Our top pick are:


Jason C-Effect Ultra C Eye Lift

Tewc Regenerating Eye Gel

Fom London Brightening Eye Lift Contour Cream

Purity Herbs Iceland Eye Cream

S5 Skincare Renew Eye Cream



4) Chapped Lips

Keeping a tube of lip balm in an easily accessible pocket is a good first step, but winter winds can take chapped lips to a whole new level. If lips are flaky, take a clean toothbrush and very gently exfoliate the skin to remove excess skin and then slather on bees wax or a lip balm.  Our most popular are


Fairfield Gardens – Spearmint & Fennel Lip Balm

Purity Herbs Iceland Ice Lip

Marili Skincare Organic Strawberry Lip Balm

Evolve Lip Treat with Cocoa, Shea & Orange

Organique Lip Balm



5) Dry Hands

As we know the skin on your hands is thinner than on most parts of the body and has fewer oil glands. That means it’s harder to keep your hands moist, especially in cold, dry weather. This can lead to itchiness and cracking. To prevent hands from drying out, apply moisturiser after hand washing and at least several times throughout the day. The products you will love

6) Brittle Nails

Dry air saps the moisture right out of nails and leaves them delicate and susceptible to breaks and tears. Treat them by applying Argan, Coconut oil or use our treatment products.

Organique – Coconut Oil



7) Rough Feet

Use exfoliates to get the dead skin off periodically and moisturize feet, especially the heels, every day with thick cream. Your feet will love

8) Scaly and Dry Elbows

The skin over high-pressure joints like elbows, knees, and heels is thicker to cushion the essential bones underneath. The key to keeping elbows and other rough spots soft is to exfoliate once or twice per week and moisturise every day with


Olihive All Natural Cream

Pommade Divine Natural Remedy Balm

Purity Herbs Iceland Viking Balm

Sheila’s Natural Chamomile Balm



9) Rough Hair IT

Hair needs a little extra TLC during wintertime. Shampooing strips moisture from the scalp and hair, so wash strands every other day. To prevent breakage avoid blow-drying and brushing hair when wet because those locks are most delicate when waterlogged. We recommend

Jason Vitamin A – C & E Shampoo

Ogario Hydrate and Shine Shampoo

Faith in Nature Aloe Vera Shampoo


Burt's Bee More Moisture shampoo Faith in Nature - Shampoo Jason Shampoo Vitamin E OGARIO Revive and Shine Conditioner 250 ml correct


10) Itchy, Dry Scalp

Step one in preventing dandruff is to take cooler, quicker showers to reduce the scalp’s exposure to drying hot water. We recommend switching to a dandruff or dry scalp-specific shampoo.

Before hopping in the shower, massage the scalpwith Vitamin E, olive, or coconut oil.  Our customers’ favorite anti-dandruff shampoos are

Jason Dandruff Relief 2 in 1 Treatment
