CHARLOTTE VØHTZ, FOUNDER OF GREEN PEOPLE SHARES HER TOP TIPS FOR WINTER SKINCARE:

Don’t use a heavy moisturiser at night; it could prevent your skin from ridding itself of waste. If your skin feels tight or dry, use a facial oil based on jojoba and/or rosehip followed by a light serum, or try a night time treat containing natural fruit acids.

Never share lipgloss or lipstick with a friend – especially if either of you have cold sores

Avoid harsh exfoliators, strong detergents and very hot water

A soft facial cloth made from ultra-fine micro-fibres is better for the skin than a rough-textured washcloth, which can cause irritation to dry skin

Limit alcohol and caffeine, which have a diuretic effect and can aggravate dry skin

Keep rooms moist, especially in winter by placing bowls of water by the radiators, or use a humidifier

Always apply moisturiser to your face and neck with light, tapping upward motions, whilst the skin is still slightly damp. This helps lock in moisture and stimulates blood circulation.

SUSTAINABLE GRASS PACKAGING: The Nordic Roots range uses an innovative new sustainable outer packaging solution that is incorporated with 25% grass, offering a clean carton board that is compostable, biodegradable and 100% recyclable. Available from: www.greenpeople.co.uk (ad)
