If you’re a mad Doctor Who fan like me, then you will recognise our heading as the catch cry of ‘Cassandra’ the ‘last surviving human’ who had so many surgeries done she was no more than a stretched piece of skin. Sometimes plastic surgery can go too far. Joking aside, if winter turns your skin into a dry, shrivelled, scaly sci-fi project then you need moisture – fast. Hyaluronic acid is the most effective hydrating ingredient available and we get ours from the Marshmallow Plant (pictured above). Hyaluronic acid holds up to 1000 times its weight in water and attracts moisture in the skin, binding it all together, leaving you with plump hydrated skin. Try using a serum for a winter boost to hydration levels under your moisturiser; this will give you deep hydration where you need it while the moisturiser protects the skin on top. My favourite is the Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum; it’s pink and smells like strawberries, what’s not to love?! These are my top Hyaluronic Hero’s available through Eminence this winter;

Firm Skin Acai Cleanser 250mls $61

Firm Skin Acai Masque 60mls $92

Strawberry Rhubarb Masque 60mls $91– I massage this into my skin when I’m staying in hotels in air conditioning and sleep in it to prevent dehydration

Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum 30mls $69

Firm Skin Acai Moisturiser 60mls $102
