Moisture, moisture, moisture

Obviously, it’s freezing and your skin is going to get chapped! Prevention is k e y. Oh and yes, you still need SPF, fun fact; snow (because it’s white) reflects the sun back onto your skin so even on a snow day you can get sun damage (skin ageing). Luckily this lip balm has built in SPF 30….you’re welcome.

Supergoop – Acai Lip balm

Ortiga – Hand Cream

Slippers

This is just a must-have. You lose the majority of body heat through your feet and your head so a soft and warm fluffy pair of slippers are perfect for days like this. Mine are from UGG (similar linked below) and they are the absolute dream, highly recommend but if they’re a bit above budget, I’ve linked some other options below

UGG – Scuffette Slipper

Zara – Floral faux fur slides

NEXT – Grey faux fur buckle sliders

Superdry – Premium mule slippers

Drink

First things first, what time of day is it? Before 5pm? Grab yourself a hot tea (green with a bit of lemon for me) or a hot cup of coffee. (P.S: These gloves are so chic and warm AND they were only £12…seriously. Sadly I can’t find the exact ones but here are some similar)

After 5pm? You can’t go wrong with a moscow mule (recipe linked below) or a glass of warming red wine (Malbec thank you). Finish off this snow day right.
