Combat winter skin

By Milly Nolan

Latest beauty blog: Quench your skin’s thirst this winter with products that are designed to soothe and nourish dry, irritated skin, by MiNDFOOD.


Estee Lauder Hydra Complete Multi-level Moisture Creme – working under the skin’s surface, this unique creme attracts water, and re-plumps the skin from the inside to restore suppleness, 50ml RRP $98.

Clinique Moisture Surge – enjoy rapid refreshment for your face with this hydration-boosting, gel-like moisturiser. If you are spending a lot of time in air-conditioned interiors, give your skin a midday boost by tapping on over make-up, RRP $76.


Sothys Hydroptimale TH13 Serum – a light fluid texture, this intensive serum quickly penetrates the skin, instantly smoothing, plumping and rehydrating. For optimal results, use in conjunction with Sothys Hydroptimale TH13 Light Hydrating Cream (RRP $105), RRP $123.


Innoxa SkinMoist Triple-Action Cleansing Crème – this rich cleanser, toner and make-up remover in one, contains botanical extracts and essential nutrients to help hydrate, comfort and replenish very dry skin, RRP $30.


Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturising Cream – with natural colloidal oatmeal, cocoa and shea butters and cooling menthol, this rich cream provides immediate relief for scratchy, extra dry skin, RRP $27.95.


Palmers Moisturising Body Oil – formulated with cocoa butter and vitamin E, this light oil is fast absorbing and smells good too. Apply to damp skin after a shower or bath, RRP $14.95.


Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Fast Absorbing Hand Cream – developed with dermatologists, this light hand cream instantly moisturises and nourishes the skin, leaving them feeling soft and supple without being greasy, RRP $8.99.


Norwegian Formula Foot Cream Dry Rough Feet – this glycerin-rich foot cream is great for dry, cracked feet and in particular for rough heels, RRP $9.


Aveeno Skin Relief Body Wash – both soap-free and fragrance-free, this creamy body wash will moisturise your skin and will relieve any dryness or irritation while it cleans, RRP $24.


One way to forget the woeful winter weather, and its skin-damaging effects, is to invest in a fresh summery fragrance.

Encased in an elegant, golden bottle and smelling fresh, floral and woody all at once, it is with eagerness that I await the arrival of Shiseido’s intoxicating Zen fragrance.

On counters in New Zealand on September 8th, this fragrance is Shiseido’s third incarnation of Zen and is already a hit in both Germany and Spain.

While the fragrance is uplifting, it is also blended with stress-relieving aromatic ingredients such as rose, grapefruit, freesia and gardenia to relax and rejuvenate the wearer.
