Winter is coming, so invest in your skincare routine now.

It may be the day of the dead, but do you know what’s truly scary? Dry, lacklustre skin that flakes and flares every time you step out the front door. Winter is coming, so if you want to avoid looking like the great undead, I suggest you start investing in your skincare routine now. Here are some of the lotions and potions that will make your skin glow.

Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Radiance Primer SPF 25, €40
DO the zombie shuffle towards combining your skincare and make-up. This water-resistant serum-slash-primer is the perfect place to start.
Formulated with lychee and mushroom extracts, the brilliant base not only reduces fine lines but also provides a gentle boost in radiance, so your complexion appears fresher. Oh, and it’s imbued with SPF to keep your skin protected this winter too.

Murad Hydrating Toner, €30
IF your skin is looking more ghoulish than glowing this Halloween, be sure to exorcise any products with drying ingredients from your beauty bag.
Instead, reach for this alcohol-free formula, which balances the skin’s natural pH after cleansing, replenishing lost moisture and prepping it for the maximum absorption of further lotions and potions.
Suitable for dry and combination skin, the refreshing toner contains chamomile and cucumber extracts to soothe the skin. Bonus points for the pore-tightening witch hazel.

Murad Nutrient-Charged Water Gel, €56

This light-weight water gel uses the brand’s famed hydration-release technology to lock in moisture for up to five days. Designed for use on all skin types, including sensitive, it’s also crammed with peptides, vitamins and minerals to help keep skin looking healthier longer.
