Be skin prepared

When it comes to looking after your skin, prevention is better than cure.

Which is why it’s essential you begin thinking about protecting your skin against the cold winter climate right now.

The temperatures might not have dropped to icy lows but our skin is still adjusting to the seasonal transitions – and with winter well on its way, the climate is only going to get tougher.

So, what’s the best way to future-proof you complexion?


Renowned runway make-up artist Adam De Cruz swears by protecting your skin in advance.

“Right now I'm loving the Darphin 8-Flower Nectar Aromatic Dry Oil, which detoxifies the skin, reduces fine lines, and renews the skin's natural glow. It’s my pick for the cold and drying winter months,” he told Cover Media.

Adam recommends applying five drops to face and neck in the evening and massaging gently in downward motions from the inner to the outer part of the face.

Flaky skin can be a major problem during the cold winter months, and Adam says it’s best to put up a pre-emptive strike against dryness.

“The Clarisonic is a really effective tool in getting rid of flaky dry skin,” he says.

The face buffer, a favourite among celebs, smoothes skin while helping to improve the appearance of tone, texture, elasticity and firmness.


Moisturising is key if you want to perfect your complexion against the elements. Adam recommends Nars Tinted Moisturiser which not only protects skin against the ravages of the weather but it also promises to help reduce the appearance of discoloration and dark spots caused by hyper

“It’s gorgeously rich and gives you a wonderful glow,” he adds.
