March is a funny time of year. The weather seems like a yo-yo going from bright summer mornings to random rain showers and it can't make up it's mind as to whether it wants to be luke warm or freezing cold. Spring is just around the corner, but winter doesn't yet want to let go. My skin can't keep up.
When the weather is temperamental my skin always comes out with dry flaky patches. It only takes the odd cold day to give me a rudolf nose and flaky cheeks which are hard to shift. Therefore preventative measures always need to be place and looking after my skin this time of year is a must.
I have recently fallen in love with this Manuka Honey Mask* from the brand Antipodes and it is now one of the items that I use on a daily basis to help my winter skin. If you haven't heard of the brand Antipodes before they are science based skincare company that have invested years into research and development to bring us high-performance anti-ageing products and each of their products have been carefully developed using nature's own ingredients. The Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask is made from a traditional remedy of antibacterial manuka honey used by the New Zealand Maori people. The honey helps draw moisture to your skin to give you instant hydration and moisturisation. I love how this mask gently applies to skin and the lingering fragrances of vanilla and mandarin. The product is scented but not overly powering and the cream is so soft that it leaves no residue. After using this product for several weeks my skin is noticeably softer and I still haven't got bored of it. Which is a first - I'm one of these people that buys lots of skincare pretending to start to a skincare regime and then gets bored of it three days in. Even the packaging of the Aura Manuka honey mask is something I love. It's simple, yet attractive and fits easily into a cosmetic bag.
If your skin is in need of a pick me up and you're looking for a product that is not only made from natural ingredients, but looks good and feels good too. I'd look no further than Antipodes. They seem to have got this mask spot on.
