Winter beauty Rachael Brook style
Long weekend tips for every face.
Skincare essentials so you don’t crack!
Another long-weekend approaches... BUT this time, there’s no beach rush.
It’s cold people. We get it. The Queen’s birthday weekend is filled with winter wonderland escapes, trips to the snow and time spent in front of a fireplace (with vino in hand).
The thing is nobody likes dry, cracked skin, so whether you’re hanging at home or off on a short vacay, it’s just as important to look after your skin during the cooler months.
So, who better to dish out some winter beauty 101 than make-up artist, beauty blogger and social media star Rachael Brook.
And with 40,000 people paying attention to the blonde beauty on Instagram and 30K on You Tube, we’re ready to take notes!
My skincare routine is... “A cleanser, toner and night cream… I’m currently using [them] from the Dr Spiller skincare range, however I do add and switch up some products occasionally with other brands.”
I swear by… “Keeping my skincare consistent, so I don’t adjust it too much throughout the year. If anything I’ll add a facial oil after applying my moisturiser for extra hydration over winter.”
Skincare begins with… “Taking care of your skin from the inside out. My skin’s condition really is affected by what I eat, so I try to make smart choices. If something doesn’t work well with my body I’ll try not to consume it as often.”
My weekend beauty rituals include… “You know how some people like to have a wine to unwind? I love a face mask and a bath instead! I’ll have a hot bath with a LUSH bath bomb and apply a face mask and just have some ‘me’ time.”
If I’m going away for a weekend away, three products I can’t leave home without are… “I love taking face masks on weekends away for a treat, plus an illuminator and brow pomade.”
For those going to the snow, try… “Facial oils are a saviour for dry skin! I’d advise applying oil to your body too if you’re being exposed to the snow.”
If I spot a pimple before a night out... “I love using the Skyn Blemish Dots overnight when a pimple comes up to help shrink it, and then I rely on a creamy concealer to cover up what’s left the next day.”
Don’t forget, no matter what… “Remove your make-up before getting into bed. Your skin will thank you for it later.”
