When the cold sets in, the heating goes on, the wind blows and… your skin feels drier than ever. Winter can be really tough on the skin and that’s why I’m really happy to have teamed up with NEUTROGENA® to tell you all about the Hydro Boost range, which focuses on hydrating the skin from top to toe.

Hydration is one of the most important things when it comes to healthy skin – no matter your age or your skin issues (yes, even oily! Oil doesn’t mean hydration) Properly hydrated skin means your skin barrier is functioning to protect your skin from all the winter elements that can often lead to red, dry and uncomfortable skin – whether that’s on your cheeks or your legs.

So how do we make sure we keep our skin hydrated? Use the right products. I love all the products from the Hydro Boost Face and Body Range but my two favourites for winter are the below.

NEUTROGENA® Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser
I love using this every morning as I know it will remove the dirt, oil and impurities from my skin without drying the skin out. This works by using ingredients that have bigger molecules and therefore can’t make it further down into the skin than the top layer – exactly what you want from a cleanser as it won’t disrupt the barrier function, simply remove any grime that is on top of the skin. This means your skin will be touchably soft after using it, as the formula helps to boost hydration, too.

NEUTROGENA® Hydro Boost Whipped Body Balm
My favourite thing about this is the texture – I don’t think I’ve ever used a product that is a balm yet doesn’t leave me feeling greasy – it’s ultra light and feels so luxurious on the skin. I also love that it has hyaluronic acid in – which is unusual for body products. I love using this when I get out of the bath before going to sleep, there’s nothing like a little pamper session to wake up with hydrated skin!

I love using this range because the science behind all NEUTROGENA® products is incredible, they’re all tested by dermatologists and have years of research behind them which is why I always trust the products to be effective.
