Winter is here. Short days and long, dark nights. Reluctantly leaving the cosy warmth of your home for the cold outdoors can leave your skin feeling dehydrated and sensitive. The drying effects of central heating and the AC in the gym, plus the low humidity of winter air, is a recipe for some skincare SOS. We know the feeling and so does Lauren Murrell, co-founder of natural beauty brand, BY SARAH LONDON. A natural skincare expert, Lauren developed her first range of skincare which is specifically formulated for super sensitive skin. Below she reveals her 3 winter skincare weapons that she swears by to protect and nourish her skin throughout winter.

At BY SARAH LONDON, we believe in the power of organic, plant-based skincare. All of our skincare is hand-made in our studio in West Sussex and we detail a full ingredient list on the front label so you know exactly what you’re putting on your skin. There’s absolutely nothing hidden, synthetic or artificial in our collection. You’re feeding your skin with beautiful ingredients, rich in vitamins, minerals and omegas to keep it healthy, support collagen production and balance your skin – particularly important this winter time.

I’ve set out our top 3 skincare products to care for your skin and see you through the chilly months ahead:

Cleanse your skin with our Green Clay Cleansing Balm
Many mainstream cleansers contain alcohol (among many other nasties) which strip skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry and parched. If your skin is sensitive, you’ll want to avoid fragrances and essential oils in your cleanser as these can cause further irritation. Our Green Clay Cleansing Balm is blended with only the finest certified-organic Apricot Oil, Virgin Coconut Oil, Beeswax and French Green Clay to gently cleanse and nourish your skin without drying it out.

Nourish your skin with our Organic Facial Oil
This multi-award-winning oil is packed full of essential fatty acids, proteins, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals – it’s a superfood salad for your skin! It contains only the finest certified-organic Sweet Almond Oil, Apricot Oil, Pumpkin Seed Oil, Argan Oil, Evening Primrose Oil and Vitamin E to provide long-lasting nourishment, boost collagen levels and promote healthy, flawless skin. Top tip: Apply the oil to slightly damp skin and pat and press it into your skin.

Banish dry skin patches with our Organic Lip Balm
This 100% organic balm is a real skin saviour and multi-tasking balm. Made with only certified cruelty free Organic Virgin Coconut oil, Organic Apricot oil and Organic Beeswax, its high antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and Vitamin A content soothes and keeps chapped lips at bay. Use on any dry patches on your hands, elbows and heels too.

So now when you’re bracing yourself for a dash to the gym when it’s sub-zero outside, you can look forward to your BY SARAH LONDON comforts of the Green Clay Cleansing Balm, Organic Facial Oil and Organic Lip Balm to take care of your skin this winter
