Keep It Simple
Regardless of the time of year, I try to adhere to the same beauty advice that I prescribe to my colour clients: low maintenance, but not no maintenance. The key to pulling this off successfully is finding the right products for you.
Dial Up Your Skincare
My skin requires a lot more moisture in the winter months. I've already started using my Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil, ¥396. While it’s designed to be used at night-time, I apply two-to-three drops during the day too for extra hydration. Aesop B & Tea Balancing Toner, ¥220 keeps me skin balanced and once a week I’ll use Kate Somerville Exfolikate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment, ¥185. If my skin feels like it needs some TLC or is looking a little dry, I’ll pamper myself with indulgent eye creams and hydrating face masks.
Hold Back On Haircare
In the summertime, I’m in the pool and ocean frequently so I shampoo more often. During the winter months, I hold back and shampoo about twice a week. One very peculiar thing that I find is that people don't rinse the shampoo and conditioner enough. Especially during the winter months when we can tend to get a little dryer it's important that we do a thorough rinse of shampoo and conditioner.
After getting out of the shower I groom with Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother, ¥229, which is a hydrating styling cream that helps to tame flyaways and frizz, and Olaplex No.7 Bonding Oil, ¥229 to boost the shine and colour of my hair.
Switch Up Your Scent
Generally, I tend to avoid citrusy summertime fragrances during the fall and winter months. Instead, I’m drawn to dryer woody scents. They just feel right when the weather turns. Tom Ford Oud Wood Eau de Parfum, ¥1,566 is my go-to.
