(Go to the bottom of this article to enter our weekly competition.)

Winter is here, and it's become crucial to up our moisture levels in our skin. Just because temps are dropping, doesn't mean our face has to...

New! Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Eye-Awakening Gel-Cream, R139.95 at Clicks and Dis-Chem 

From pollution and dealing with crowded public transport or traffic, to late nights and work stress, city life can be harsh on your skin. Try Neutrogena® Hydro Boost range. It's specially designed to up water levels in the skin and strengthen its moisture barrier to leave skin so supple it bounces right back.

I love the eye product especially as it wakes up the skin and banishes the tell-tale signs of tiredness. 

We all need that some days.

sound sleep cocoon by Dermalogica (dropping on the 25th of May), R1,295.

This night gel-cream works on all skin types, which is the ultimate win. 

Use it overnight as the final step in your nighttime routine for the ultimate skin recovery. It's packed with ingredients like Tamarind seed extract, French lavender essential oils and a fancy sounding Persian silk tree extract that help you sleep better, reduce signs of skin fatigue and soften your skin.

I've been using it for a few nights, and can say that I didn't have to count any sheep.

This gem is arriving on June 1st!

It is a nightly corrective cream with glycolic acid that helps to promote cellular turnover and gives the skin a radiant and noticeable glow (yes it does!) with regular use. Start by using it every second night.

It's suitable for those with a dull skin, uneven texture and tone usually associated with sun damage. (All skin types can use it except those with sensitive or rosacea-prone skins. Don't use in conjunction with retinol) 

Optiphi Hydra-Derm HA Masque, R690.

Perhaps one of my current favourites, leave it on overnight for the best results. It will reinstate skin moisture and keep your skin hydrated all day long. 

ALSO: I recently did a Optiphi DNA test which gave me crucial information about my skin health, my body, possible health worries to look out for and which exact products I should be using for my skin. Cost ranges from R2 500 - R4 300, depending on the DNA test option selected. And then you have the results for life! 

Available from participating optiphi® skin centres. 

COMFORT ZONE Essential Face Wash, R330. 

This creamy cleanser is perfect for dull, winter skin. It will remove all impurities and makeup, while respecting the skin’s equilibrium and restoring its natural luminosity. Get it!
