Gotta Have It

Meet your new winter skincare saviours! Five of the best products to give you back your glow chosen by all-natural, no-nasties beauty expert Kim from Cambridge's brand new Pure Source - England beauty boutique.

It’s that time of year when we all come out of hibernation, peel ourselves away from the central heating and emerge into the light to discover our Vitamin D deprived skin is parched, cracked and rather peaky looking. If you’re looking to get your glow on in time for the first rays of spring sunshine (they’re coming I promise) lather yourself up with these natural, no-nasties winter skin and hair saviours from one of Muddy’s favourite new boutiques, Pure Source – England in Cambridge. We asked owner and skincare expert Kim Sivyer to choose her top five face-saving beauty picks to help you go from pasty and dull to perfectly plump and glowing in a matter of weeks. Over to you Kim…

natural lipstick

“Axiology lipsticks are made without any synthetics, parabens, palm oil or petroleum, just pure natural stuff. This is a ‘stop the traffic colour’ that keeps lips hydrated all through winter and adds all the goodness of natural oils, butters and plant extracts. Winter lips will never need a lip balm again!”

natural beauty mask

“Dull, dehydrated, winter skin will benefit from Juice Beauty’s Apple Peel Mask. This spa-grade exfoliation will reveal a brighter complexion with potent alpha and beta hydroxy acid made from plants. It will also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as dark spots and discolouration, for optimum age-defying results.”

natural skincare

“Winter hair never seems to see the light like summer hair. One of the reasons for this is that you tend to loose more hair in the winter as biologically the body will retain hair to protect the scalp during the summer. Rahua Founders Formula scalp and hair treatment can be massaged into the scalp before sleeping, working its magic on the hair follicles by strengthening the root of the hair, helping to combat hair loss. Wash off in the morning and your hair will be vibrant, shiny and voluminous.”

natural beauty balm

“Odylique Repair Lotion is handmade in Suffolk and has been created specifically to calm and aid the repair of distressed and itchy skin that tends to be associated with the extremes of winter.”

“Bamford Geranium, Lavender and Peppermint bath oil is a real favourite with our customers. This indulgent aromatherapy soak is high in nourishing oleic acid, restoring the skin’s natural glow, while essential oils of geranium, lavender, peppermint and tonka revitalise the body as well as the mind.”

All products available from Pure Source UK, 72 Bridge Street, Cambridge.
