If you thought that your skin had much to contend with during the summer months (sun damage, excess oil), there's more where that came from when winter comes around. Relentless rays replace biting winds, central heating, rain and moisture-sapping cooler temperatures that leave your face looking red and feeling dry.
For that reason, it's important to arm yourself with hydrating buys that ward off windburn, parched cheeks and all manner of other beauty woes that crop up in the cooler months. We've rounded up the very best, from an oil that plumps and tans dull skin, to a bath milk that drags dry limbs back to their supple, gleaming best.

Here's the thing about winter skin; as well as being perpetually dry, it tends to lack the radiance that it boasts in the summer months. This puts Hand Chemistry Glow Oil
up there with some of our favourite cold weather buys, as it?s a self tan alternative that warms up skin without sapping limbs of moisture.
How? It's formulated sans DHA, the common tanning agent that increases the presence of free radicals, thus accelerating skin ageing. In its place, it harnesses Erythrulose, a keto-sugar found in raspberries that builds a natural-looking tan in a far more skin-kind way.
Slather it on from neck to toes to create a believable tawny hue that takes the edge off a winter pallor and enhances that party dress.
