Heather Smith from Lifestyle expert from The Haute Bar shows us how to protect our skin during the winter.

For the face, eyes + lips you’ll want to nourish, fortify, and protect this delicate skin, as winter weather can be abrasive.

Tata Harper for the Face

Nourishing Oil Cleanser - a super gentle cleanser that cleanses without stripping the skin. It can be used on its own or as a makeup remover.

Moisturizing Mask - wear this mask overnight whenever your skin needs a serious moisture boost. You'll wake up with soft, glowing, plump and hydrated skin.

Replenishing Nutrient Complex - this face oil is packed with nutrients to nourish your skin while giving it essential moisture, helping to minimize dry rough patches or irritation.

Hydrating Floral Essence -  Lightweight and refreshing hydration that you can apply throughout the day, and even on top of makeup, whenever you need a hydration boost.

 

Plume Serum for Lashes + Brows

We often have serums for around the eyes -- but it is important to condition lashes and brows too. Ingredients like aloe vera, honey extract and watercress protect lashes and brows from breakage.

Rice Bran and Rosemary Leaf Extracts - are antioxidants to combat free-radical skin damage.

Ursa Major’s  Morning Mojo Bar Soap exfoliates and hydrates the skin.
