Hira was able to answer many of our skincare concerns, specifically addressing winter skincare issues.

Q. What would you recommend for covering up acne during the day?
We’re a big fan of mineral makeup. The Pur Minerals range is so nourishing for the skin!
Q. Can you recommend a foundation that covers but doesn’s block pores and cause breakouts?
The Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation lets your skin breathe & still gives really good coverage!
Q. What products would you recommend for acne-prone skin?
Try the Blemish Control 30 Day Kit from Murad. It’s a great way to start a new routine.
Q. I’m pregnant & my tummy is itchy but finding it worse already! What body moisturisers are good for a bump?
Ooh you need to try the Tummy Rub Butter from Mama Mio. It’s so lovely and moisturising!
Q. I’ve got oily skin, is it better to use a heavy moisturiser during the winter months or will a light one do?
You can continue to use a light one but listen to your skin. Adding a little serum can be really effective.
Q. What do you recommend to combat redness? It’s always so much worse for me when the weather is bad.
The Anti-Redness Serum from REN is fab for providing instant relief.
Q. Do we really need to change our skincare products for winter?
Yes! As you change your clothing, you need to change your skincare.
Q. What would you recommend for dry yet spot prone skin during winter months?
Overnight liquid exfoliation like Alpha-H Liquid Gold will remove dry skin & clear pores.
