We may still be at the start of October, but there have already been plenty of great skincare products launched for us to rave about. Here our 5 of the best, to help keep your skin in tip-top condition ready for the cold winter months ahead!
[ 1 ] Flint + Flint SPF 30 Primer – £25 for 50ml. This is one of my favourite products. It goes on easily and isn’t sticky or greasy at all, providing a great base for your everyday makeup. A defensive primer for protection against harmful UVA, UVB and UV rays. Containing Venuceane™, Mongongo oil and OSILIFT®.
Venuceane™, which fights IR (Infra Red) induced samples, also lessens inflammatory conditions, improves hydration and maintains and limits wrinkle formation.
This is complemented by the addition of Mongongo oil, used for thousands of years by the Bushmen of the Kalahari to protect their skin. This oil reacts rapidly with UV light to form in to a protective layer for the skin. The high amounts of vitamin E provide excellent antioxidant properties.

[ 3 ] Don’t forget about the skin on your feet this winter! Footner Exfoliating Socks are a cosmetic peel for the feet. No filing, scraping or grating is required – simply slip on the Footner Exfoliating Socks and relax for 60 minutes. Then wait a few days (5-10 days, everybody’s feet are different) to see the dead skin peel off to reveal baby soft skin underneath. I can personally vouch for how amazing the results from this actually are, after trying it myself. It’s official – I’m obsessed with these Footner products and they are now one of my all time skincare must-haves!
How it works: The active AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids) in Footner, also used in cosmetic skin peels, soften the hard skin build up and loosen the ‘glue’ that binds dead skin cells together, starting the exfoliation process naturally. Only the dead skin cells are removed, leaving feet soft, supple and Christmas party ready.
Footner Exfoliating Socks are available from Boots RRP £19.99, both instore and online at www.boots.com. For more product information go to www.myfootner.com or @FootnerUK
