5 Tips for Effortlessly Radiant Skin this Winter

  • Apply vitamin C topically, and add it to your diet. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, defending your skin against stress, pollution, and cold weather, so by topping up on this vitamin, you’ll help your skin to look brighter and more youthful. I recommend the Image Skincare Vital C Hydrating Anti Ageing Serum or the Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil.


  • Regular exfoliation is a must! Absence of exfoliation prevents serums and moisturisers from penetrating deeper into your skin, which means your serums and creams are sitting on top of dead skin cells and can’t get to work. We at Virginia Williams recommend you use either an AHA (glycolic) or bha (salicylic) which will increase cell turnover resulting in a brighter, smoother complexion.
  • Be sure to use collagen-containing skincare. UVA/UVB rays are harmful during the winter months. Even when skies are grey, UVA radiation is active. UVA penetrates deeper than UVB, to the layer where our fibroblast cells reside, and where we make our collagen.  Without collagen, our skin loses its firmness, and this means visible wrinkles, fine lines, and slackness.
  • Include vitamin D in your regime. Vitamin D doesn’t just help to maintain our moods that can sometimes feel out of balance with the darker, changeable weather, but it also boosts our skin. This boost can help to minimise sallowness, and reduce congestion and breakouts.
  • Lastly, remember to get a good night’s sleep. When we’re asleep, our skin repairs, and heals itself from daily damage. A regular sleep-cycle will help you achieve a glowing complexion and healthy looking skin.
