January can be a tough month. But, little treats like taking care of your skin a little better can make all the difference when it comes to brightening up a dreary day.  

If your skin is feeling the effects of the festive season, there is no better time to start a new skincare routine. From being exposed to cold winds, indoor heating and mixed temperatures, it is the perfect time to be a little kinder to your skin and take some extra time twice a day to pamper yourself.

Claire Brett, the creator of Irish wellness brand Dublin Herbalists uses natural ingredients that are gentle on your sensitive winter skin and will help to settle and sooth delicate areas. As a Herbalist and Naturopath Claire began developing recipes for a simple moisturiser made from entirely natural ingredients in her home kitchen in 2012. Her homemade cream proved so popular with family and friends that she launched Dublin Herbalists in 2013. Fast forward 5 years and Dublin Herbalists’ ethos and product range has a dedicated and ever-increasing fanbase in Ireland and abroad. Claire’s scientific knowledge and deep understanding of the therapeutic virtues of plants has allowed her to tap into the power of unusual ingredients in her natural skin-care range.

Here is your perfect 5-step facial routine perfect for soothing delicate winter skin:

Step 1 - Cleanse

Start your facial by applying the Every Day Cleansing Gel directly to dry skin with dry hands. Wash away with water. Pat your face dry with a clean towel.

 

Step 2 - Exfoliate

Next, use the Exfoliating Cleansing Gel by applying directly to dry skin with dry hands and wash away with water. Pat your face dry with a clean towel.

 

Step 3 - Mask

Then apply the Restorative Face Mask to your dry face with dry hands. Leave for at least 20 minutes or up to an hour to enable all the active ingredients to sink into your skin before washing off. Pat your face dry with a clean towel.

 

Step 4 - Tone

After the mask, apply the Refreshing Facial Toner directly to your clean, dry skin using a cotton pad. Allow to absorb completely before moisturizing.
