In My Kit: La Mer The Body Crème

At this time of year, lots of people forget about their bodies because they’re packed away under layers of knitwear! But just as your face needs extra hydration in the winter months to combat changing weather and central heating, so does your body.

If, like me, you’ve been trying to combat the British weather with layer upon layer of clothing, the chances are you might have been neglecting your skin. While it’s easy to add an extra oil or choose a richer moisturiser for your facial complexion, the body is often forgotten about until summer, meaning winter skin is left dry and flaking. In my latest ‘in my kit’ post, I’m sharing one of my favourite body moisturisers to combat dry winter skin; La Mer The Body Crème.

La Mer The Body Crème, £175

This super-rich body cream is the ultimate winter skincare treat. Because it’s a thick cream, the massaging technique needed to rub into the skin is really great for improving your circulation, especially at this time of year. It’s my top pick for skiing holidays where skin is really battling the elements, and I recommend making a ritual of the application and spending some time working it into skin to see an instant improvement in tone and texture. I appreciate that this isn’t the most affordable product out there, but for a special treat, present (to me, from me?!) or once-in-a-while buy, it really is worth splashing out on.
