Sport proof your skin


If you're running often on winter mornings, then you should try to protect your skin from drying out.

A bitter chill and biting wind can wreck havoc with your complexion, so before you set off, take a couple of sport proofing precautions and your skin will love you for it.

Hands

Unless you are wearing gloves, your hands can really feel the cold, so applying an intensive salve to your hands prior to running will help keep them protected from the elements. Burts Bees Hand Salve, is one of their most intensive hand treatments - perfect for winter running.

RRP: £9.99, available from
Burt's Bees

Lips
Your lips can become very dry when exercising so apply a botanically charged balm to keep them well hydrated and utterly gorgeous. Liz Earle's Superbalm will defend your lips from drying out or cracking, leaving them super moisturized (and smelling lovely too).

From £4.75, available from Liz Earle

Face
Running with your face against the winter winds will not do your skin any favors. A decent moisturizer will create a barrier on your skin, keeping it protected, soft and smooth. We love Caudalié's Pulpe Vitaminée - an anti-wrinkle cream. Made with grapeseed, it has a velvety texture and a heavenly fragrance.

RRP: £32, available from Caudalie
