I dunno where you are, (leave me a comment & tell me!) but here in Ireland the we're definitely headed into winter. I'm jealous of people who are just getting autumn/fall now.. anyway I thought I'd share a few of my tips for winterproofing your skin now we're almost in winter's freezing grasp

1. Drink plenty of H20.
Duh right? You should be doing this all year round to keep your skin in it's best condition, but when it's freezing out you can try some different warming herbal teas. Caffeine free drinks are better when you're trying to stay hydrated. (Says the caffeine monster :p) My love of caffeine means I'm probably always lacking a little in proper hydration.

2. Moisturise Mask All Day.
Slap on plenty of your favourite moisturiser to keep skin hydrated and protected from the harsh weather. Bear in mind central heating dries out the air, which doesn't help your skin glow either, so apply a protective balm or moisture mask regularly too. I really loved this protective face salve from Bathing Beauty or a hydrating sheet mask works really well too.

3. Protect Your Pout.
Chapped lips are something that I unfortunately get at some point every winter, freezing cold weather is particularly harsh on the delicate skin on our lips. Keep yours hydrated and protected by wearing plenty of lip balm. This pretty summer fruit one from EOS is certified organic. It's summer flavour is a little throwback to warmer weather and the bright coloured packaging will brighten up your dark winter days too. Find the Summer Fruit style on Target.

4. Use Sunscreen.
I'm terrible at doing this, and it may sound ridiculous, but even though it's really cold out, and the sun may not be particularly visible, your skin still needs to be protected from harmful rays. Try using products that contain a built-in SPF.

5. Make The Most of Sweater Weather.
It's sweater, scarf, hat and glove weather right? For really soft hands and feet, apply some organic coconut oil or your favourite lotion and pop on a pair of cosy socks or gloves for a few hours or overnight. When you take them off you'll find your mitts are super soft!
