When the Heat is On

It may be getting chillier outside but things are hotting up indoors as shops, offices and homes turn the heating on to combat the cold. This may be all very warm and snug, but it can leave us feeling far from fresh, whilst drying out our skin too. Here are a few products to help combat these unwanted effects.

Fresh - but extreme!
Mitchum Advanced Control Roll On for women, available in Powder Fresh, Shower Fresh, Unperfumed and Waterlily (my favourite) varieties. A pleasant, long-lasting, high-performing deodorant - a must in a potentially sticky atmosphere. `normally retails at £2.89, but currently £2 'price drop' at Tesco. Also available in aerosol and men’s ranges.

Simple Moisture Boost Hydro Mist (£5.99, Boots) is a moisturising spritz containing lotus flower extract, which you apply to your face to combat dehydrated skin. It can be sprayed directly over make-up, so you can use it anytime, anywhere.

Body Sprays have come of age – they’re no longer just the sickly smelling variety reminiscent of the girls’ school changing room. Many perfume lines now offer co-ordinating body sprays, such as those from M&S, Avon, Yardley and Charlie. Alternatively, you can match your body spray to your shower/bath products to maximise freshness. I love Fenjal body spray, £3.46 at Boots.

To stop your lips drying out choose from one of the range of Vaseline Lip Therapy tins, £1.79 at Superdrug. Choose from the original formula, Aloe Vera, Cocoa Butter or Rosy Lips with rose and almond oil.
