Winter Skin Saviours

9th November 2023

Replenish and renew with Cornish skincare  

Winter is the season of invigorating winter walks next to stormy seas, cosy jumpers, and warming mugs of hot chocolate by the fire. However, it also brings colder temperatures, harsh winds, and dry central heating that can wreak havoc on our skin!

Luckily there are plenty of miraculous Cornish skincare products that can help protect skin from harsh winter conditions, while maintaining its health and natural balance. With an emphasis on gentle and nourishing formulations, unlike many mass-produced skincare items that are loaded with chemicals, Cornish skincare products are often handmade in small batches using natural ingredients.

Shop Cornish has handpicked 6 of the best products that have a holistic approach to skincare, whilst caring for your skin all winter long.

Natural lip care

Winter is notorious for causing skin dryness and the elements can leave skin feeling parched and flaky, especially the lips.

Bloomtown has us covered with their 100% natural and vegan Avocado and Mint Lip Balm, which shields lips from the winter weather and provides long-lasting hydration. Made with a blend of natural ingredients that includes organic cold-pressed avocado oil, sweet almond oil, moisturising cocoa butter, vitamin E, and pure peppermint essential oil, this is a little tin of goodness that treats your lips to the nourishment they deserve.

Repair and protect the hands

The problem of dry, cracked hands can affect anyone who spends a lot of time outside over the colder months.

B Skincare has come to our rescue with its bestselling Beeswax Hand Cream, which works hard to heal and defend hands from biting cold winds. Containing beeswax which forms a naturally protective layer, and the lovely fragrance of ylang-ylang essential oil, this hand cream is said to be popular with farmers and gardeners – and gives hands the help they need when they send out a winter SOS.

Moisture, moisture, moisture

In the harshest of seasons, skin needs some extra TLC, and Sōlseed provides just this with its Regenerative Face Cream

Luxuriously rich and moisturising, this restorative cream deeply penetrates the skin with a blend of argan and rose hip butters, natural oils, seaweed extract, and vitamin E. Suitable for daily use, this cream is beautifully scented with sage essential oil and palo santo, making it a blissful addition to your winter skincare routine.

Soothe the whole body

Bath salts are loved for their powerful therapeutic properties – easing stress, relieving muscle pain, and calming the skin. And in the depths of winter, there’s nothing better than a warm bath with one of SoapSenses’ Salt & Soothe Luxury Handmade Bath Salt Bags.

Each jar contains 3 biodegradable salt bags containing a balanced blend of Epsom, Dead Sea, and Pink Himalayan salts. Simply drop a bag into your bath water and prepare for a relaxing soak!
