There’s no doubt that winter can be a magical time of year; with festivities to look forward to, cosy candles to light and an excuse to hunker down in the warmth indoors, there’s plenty to be thankful for. When it comes to our skin though, it isn’t quite such good news. Thanks to a combination of central heating, icy temperatures, damp weather and bitter winds – not to mention the added stress of a global pandemic – our skin can often feel unbalanced and out of whack, resulting in persistent dryness, irritation and sensitivity. Lacking in the vitality we often experience during the spring and summer months, our winter complexions can look dull, lacklustre and like they’re crying out for an injection of radiance.
Happily, both for our skin and our spirits, winter sees the launch of the de Mamiel comforting, fortifying Winter Oil, a blend specially created by Annee to support skin with what it needs during this time, and address dehydration, dryness and seasonal dullness in one fell swoop. Just as you would change your wardrobe to match the seasons, think of Winter Oil as the cosseting cashmere jumper of the skincare world. A restorative blend of aromatic oils, flowers essences and extracts that contains all the nourishment dry, flaky skin needs, a few drops of this golden oil used daily, leaves skin feeling transformed –supple, resilient and deeply hydrated. Rich in plant extracts including Seabuckthorn, Artic Cranberry Seed Oil and Rosehip Seed Oil that are all abundant in skin-strengthening vitamins, minerals and fatty acids, the Winter Oil is not only the ultimate restorative tonic to help revive skin, but weary minds too; to induce feelings of calm and relaxation, inhale the aromatics of the oil deeply before every use and revel in the feelings of uplifting calm that it brings.
To use, cleanse skin thoroughly first, apply Intense Nurture Antioxidant Elixir, then place 4-5 drops of oil in the palm of your hands. Press together to warm, then cup around your nose and mouth, breathing deeply for a count of 3. Pause, then exhale for a count of 5 and massage upwards and outwards from the centre of your face until all of the oil is absorbed. Use morning and evening.
