This time of year, our skin is battling against all sorts of problems. Cold weather, central heating, too much alcohol and too little sleep; it’s no wonder dry skin and break-outs are so common in the winter! To help prevent longer-term damage and to stay looking your best this season, have one of the best quick-fix moisture boosters on hand to give your skin a pick-me-up whenever you need it. These are my favourites…

The Best Quick-Fix Moisture Boosters

Sarah Chapman Skinesis Intense Hydrating Booster, £59

I love this Sarah Chapman serum; it’s super lightweight so it doesn’t leave skin feeling greasy, just gives an instant moisture boost and leaves skin looking glowy.

Decleor Aromessence Neroli Amara Oil Serum, £46

I love Decleor’s whole range of essential oil products, each one is 100% natural and active. This one is a great hydrating pick-me-up for winter skin.

SK-II Facial Treatment Mask $135

This 100% cotton sheet mask gives skin an intensive treatment within just 10-15 minutes, so it’s a great one to use the night before a party, or on a plane to stop skin getting dried out as you travel.

Omorovicza Oxygen Booster, £85

This oxygen booster works to replicate the effects of an oxygen facial at the spa, but without the time commitment, so it’s great for use on-the-move. It gives an instant smoothing and plumping effect.

Emma Hardie Moisture Boost Vit C Cream, £45

This vitamin-enriched day cream is light enough to act as an instant moisture booster without giving skin a greasy appearance. I’d recommend mixing a little with your favourite foundation for a dewy finish this season.

Jurlique Calming Blend Aromatherapy Mist, £20.40

If the cold weather and dry heat of central heating is playing havoc with your skin, have a face mist on hand to calm skin and keep your complexion hydrated. This Jurlique calming blend contains lavender and grapefruit essential oils.

111 Skin Bio Cellulose Facial Treatment Mask, £85 for 5

This cooling, soothing sheet mask locks moisture into the skin and gives skin an instant glow. I was really impressed with this one.
