What we have to say about your health and well being
Dec 2011
Now that Winter has arrived, we need to think about the basics of skincare. Moisturiser-as cold winds can strip moisture from your skin and make it more sensitive, use a richer moisturiser with SPF protection every day. It is also essential to apply a good night cream. Exfoliator- skin cell turnover slows in winter hence we should use a gentle exfoliator to remove dead skin cells once or twice a week to restore radiance. Serum- every woman’s secret weapon! Use hydrating serum before moisturiser to plump up skin and keep your skin looking younger. Face mask- Avoid face masks with clay as they absorb extra oil from your skin, rather use moisture masks to nourish and revive your skin. Hand Cream-Don’t forget to apply hand cream! Your hands suffer even more than your face and deserve some attention. Exfoliate your hands and apply a good quality hand cream such as Mavala Hand Cream. Lip Balm-your lips don’t have any oil glands so they dry out fast. Apply a rich lip balm frequently. In Winter it is still important to drink plenty of water to keep skin hydrated. Central heating is cosy and hot baths are heavenly but both can dry your skin. Use tepid water whenever possible and focus on regular exercise with healthy foods rich in antioxidants. Use a facial self-tan to give you a healthy glow. Avene Skincare is based on unique thermal spring water from France and is especially for dry and sensitive skin but can be used whatever your skin type.

Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
