If like me your skin is suffering from the biting cold with the drop in temperatures this week, then you’ll love these nourishing skin soothers - and could win them absolutely free!
Olive oil is incredibly nutritious for our skin, particularly if it’s feeling dry or dehydrated - and helps fight signs of ageing due to its natural antioxidants. Personally I love everything about olives! I love seeing olive groves on holidays, I always cook with olive oil, I eat lots of olives and I’ve used the oil on my own skin too. In fact I even used it on my babies when they were tiny and suffering from eczema or cradle cap.
I have two gorgeous Dr Organic skincare products up for grabs today: Virgin Olive Oil Body Scrub and Skin Lotion, courtesy of health store, Holland & Barrett. Made with intensely nutritious Bioactive Organic Virgin Olive Oil and moisturising fruit oil, rich in antioxidant, Oleic acid - together these will help slough off any dead skin cells and deeply nourish your skin.
“The hydrating Body Scrub combines natural micro particles of volcanic lava to gently but efficiently remove dead skin cells and stimulate circulation, giving the body an instant re-energised lift, leaving the skin beautifully hydrated, silky smooth and bursting with vitality.”
“The Skin Lotion moisturises deep into the epidermal surface to nourish and hydrate, perfectly restoring the skin’s natural integrity.”

While you get your thinking caps on, here’s a Winter beauty tip for you…
A hot shower first thing in the morning is a great way to wake the body up and make the transition
from bed to the cold outdoors a little easier. But hot water can have a negative effect on dry skin,
leaving it less hydrated and more prone to damage. Instead, try a lukewarm shower, then gently pat
your skin dry and follow with a body cream rich in moisturising ingredients, such as olive oil or aloe vera. Alternatively, take a hot shower but before you step out, rinse your body in cold water before
switching back to hot and repeating for a minute or two. As uncomfortable as this may be, it works
wonders for circulation, invigorating and revitalising the skin.
