17 Products I Swear By for a Healthy Winter Glow

I don’t know about you, but the minute the mercury drops below 15°, my skin starts freaking out. While warm weather and sunny days bring out the best in my complexion, the winter brings out the worst. For the last few weeks, thanks to a combination of cold climes, central heating, and beating winds, I have been experiencing dryness, irritation, breakouts, and general dullness when it comes to my skin.

And I know that I am not alone. In fact, many of my close friends and colleagues have also been complaining about dryness recently. In a bid to get my skin back on track come winter, every year, I bring out my ultimate glow-boosting kit. From super-nourishing moisturisers to light-reflecting highlighters, I turn to the same sort of results-driven products in order to keep my skin glowing all winter long.
