These skincare must-haves are tried and tested staples in both my personal and professional kits. For a well moisturized face especially before makeup, Embryolisse is my all time fave. Massaged into the skin It hydrates and plumps the face to perfection. For ultra dry skin Weleda Skin Food is super rich and emollient. You don’t need much to replenish parched skin.

I always have a few different lip balms on the go but Vaseline Lip Therapy is a good basic standby. The special edition gold dust version has the subtlest sheen and smells like strawberries. Lucas Papaw is my nighttime balm. The oily texture is also really good for dry cuticles not to mention a host of other ailments.

When I lived in London I worked for Kiehl’s and that’s what started my Creme de Corps obsession. You can’t beat the rich texture that eliminates even the ashiest skin, absorbing just enough to leave a gorgeous glow. Australian cult brand Lano is a great clean beauty option. It’s cruelty free and contains no artificial colours, parabens or fragrances. The Everywhere Multi-Cream is exactly as the name describes you can use it literally anywhere – hand cream, body cream, day or night face cream.

Currently dry hands are a shared problem for all, and Aesop Resurrection Hand Balm is the answer. A combination of botanicals and softening emollients brings instant relief to moisture depleted hands and cuticles.

The Ordinary Plant Derived Squalane is some what of a miracle product for hydration. This extremely lightweight oil is not at all oily. I use it to lock in moisture at the end of my skincare routine. I also like to add a few drops to my Lano Everywhere Cream for extra slip. For improved texture and suppleness, as well as heat protection and shine for the hair this is a winner.
