When biting winds and central heating are doing your skin no favours, it’s time to call in the rescue balms. We quizzed aesthetics and dermatology nurse Emma Coleman on the ingredients worth looking out for in these healing heroes

THE FIX: Support your moisturiser with a gentle balm cleanser – cleansing is an important step that can help maintain the integrity of the skin barrier. ‘Try something with vitamin C, so plant extracts and phenols, which includes essential oils like orange and lemon,’ says Emma Coleman. They have high detoxifying properties and give pores a deep cleanse. Pair with anti-inflammatories such as amaranth or arnica to relieve puffiness. Dark berries like cranberry and blackcurrant are a good option as they’re rich in antioxidant vitamins C and E.’

About Healthy Magazine

Welcome to the Christmas issue of healthy! In the December/January edition, we look at how to avoid stress and stay upbeat over the festive period. Plus, we’ve got some tips on making healthier choices at the Christmas party and setting achievable goals for the year ahead. Many of us suffer with stress over Christmas, so for this issue, we wanted to think about all of the positive things that come with it, too. From our fresh-thinking article on perfecting the art of getting tipsy, to advice on how to break the Christmas weight-gain/January diet cycle, we’re approaching the colder months with a positive outlook. In the name of balance, writer Laura Potter looks at why we should practise Pilates to build strength and improve posture. We also look into the benefits of art therapy, as well as offering some crafting tips for you to try. And if you’re hosting your own festive party this year, don’t forget to flip the magazine over for festive recipe inspiration in our dedicated food section.
