Winter can play havoc with your skin. The constant switch between freezing temperatures outside to warm central heating indoors means skin can quickly become dry and dull. With the winter weather here to stay, we’ve pulled together a selection of shops and salons in the city which will help give your skin the radiance and moisture it needs at this time of year.
Le Petit Spa, Malmaison, Mailbox
Enjoy some peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the city at Le Petit Spa in Malmaison. Try the Active Peel Facial, designed to dramatically smooth and soften your skin tone in just one hour. Starting with a brush cleanse to prepare the skin, you will then experience a deep exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, followed by an application of rose quartz crystals to cool and calm the skin.
Debenhams, Bullring – The Estée Lauder Anti-Wrinkle and Advanced Night Repair set
Wake up to more beautiful skin everyday with the Estée Lauder Anti-Wrinkle and Advanced Night Repair set. The powerful trio includes the best-selling night repair serum, moisturiser and eye cream, which work together to reduce the look of lines and wrinkles, leaving you with smoother and more radiant skin.
The Body Shop, Bullring/New Street – Drops of Youth
Awaken your skin with The Body Shop’s exclusive Drops of Youth range. We recommend the day to night skin care routine, designed to help you tackle wrinkles and fine lines head-on. The range provides instant moisture to leave your skin feeling smoother, fresher and healthier.

Lush, New Street – Fresh face masks
Lush offers a range of fresh face masks which are filled with essential oils, fresh fruit and butters which restore the skin’s radiance. Our favourites include Rosy Cheeks and Brazened Honey. Rosy Cheeks smooths the skin, leaving it calm whilst Brazened Honey detoxifies the skin, leaving it refreshed. Whether you’re after a glowing complexion or just fancy treating yourself, Lush has a range of 14 masks to try, all with a range of benefits.
House of Fraser, Corporation Street – Origins
Get your daily glow back with Origins Original Skin serum, voted Best Serum in the Cosmo Beauty Lab Awards 2015. We also recommend A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturiser, a green tea moisturiser designed to build an invisible bubble of protection around the skin and help minimise the appearance of damage.
Neal’s Yard Remedies, Grand Central
If your hands are suffering from the harsh weather, visit Neal’s Yard Remedies and try one of the luxurious hand creams. The Garden Mint and Bergamot Hand Lotion is a luxurious organic lotion enriched with nourishing shea nut butter. Prefer a sweeter smell? Go for the Geranium and Orange lotion instead.
