Winter Skin Survival Guide

Fat Mum Slim /

Brought to you by Olay Regenerist.

Last weekend I spent a few days down in the snow, and I have to tell you… it was brutal on my skin. I could see that it was affecting the people that I was with too. We were all reaching for water, lip balms and moisturiser. I guess people in other parts of the world would laugh at our winters, because they’re really not too bad, especially in the northern states. We’re pretty lucky.

Winter does have a massive effect on our skin. It’s a mix of those hot showers, coming in and out of heated homes, wind and low humidity that makes our skin freak out a little bit. While I might not be a pro when it comes to make-up and winged eye-liner, I am obsessed with skincare and making sure I take care of my skin properly.

Today I wanted to share a few tips to survive winter, and how to keep your skin glowing during the colder months. Ready. Set. Go.


Yes, it’s predictable, but important so it wouldn’t be right to dismiss it. It’s easy to forget to drink water in the cooler months, but we still need to have 2 litres or more each day. Add herbs or lemon to your water for more flavour, or try herbal teas {I love Tea Tonic and survive on many each day}.


Everyone has their own routine { if you don’t, start now! Immediately, if not sooner!}. As part of my morning routine, I rinse my face in the shower, and then moisturise. At night I cleanse, moisturise and finish by using an eye cream {when I remember}.

Not sure what products to use? The Olay Regenerist Overnight Miracle regimen {Micro-Sculpting Day Cream, Micro-Sculpting Night Cream and Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence} is affordable and it works with your skin to reduced wrinkles, and make your skin firmer and plumper {and starts working in just 5 days}. It can make you look up to ten years younger, which is never a bad thing.


Get a good lip balm, and apply regularly. Lips don’t have any oil glands, and they also don’t have a protective layer of thick skin so they’re usually the first to suffer when it comes to wintery weather. I have a lip balm in almost every room of the house, so that I can always apply on the go. I even have one in the car. Obsessed? Yes. I. Am.


I love feeling all nice and clean when it comes to my skin, but I know in winter I have to be a little less enthusiastic. In summer, I can cleanse as much as I like, because my oil glands are doing their work and I’m hydrated. In winter, I find it best to cleanse just once a day {at night to get rid of grime and stuff}, and then just rinse my face in the morning.
