Cold air, rain, and heaters all play havoc with your skin in winter, causing it to become dull, dry and depleted.

"The change in seasons can really affect your skin," confirms beauty therapist at AMR Hair & Beauty, Dale Tannous.

"It's important to replenish our skin with highly nourishing and moisturising products to look after it properly during the winter."

Add extra hydration to keep your skin supple and smooth, including oil-based products for glow and hyaluronic acid to return moisture.

Here's what to add to your bathroom cupboard this season:

Salt By Hendrix, Glowtown Green Face Oil, $44.95

"When the elements are giving skin a hard time, an oil is often a worthwhile investment," says Dale.

This skin-loving oil is for dry and/or acne prone skin.

It contains hemp seed oil to deeply hydrate, prickly pear oil to make skin smoother and clearer, and a natural blend of apple, amla fruit oils, broccoli and cucumber to protect from environmental pollutants, giving you a gorgeous natural glow.

Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask, $24.15

This super nourishing face mask works while you sleep, giving you 72 hours of intense hydration.

This can work wonders on the dryness and flakiness the change in seasons often brings.

Containing glacier water, hyaluronic acid and avocado butter, it seriously quenches extra thirsty skin.

"You can even use it on other parts of your body that need some hydration, such as hands or elbows," says Dale.

Dose Caramel Collagen Creamer, $35

Support glowing skin from the inside out with a collagen supplement.

This dairy-free option contains good fats, as well as Type 1 and 3 collagen.

These forms of collagen are great for creating strong hair, nails and skin - all of which can become dry and flaky during the cooler months.

This is delicious mixed in coffee, smoothies or porridge.

Royal Comfort Luxury Silk Pillow Case Twin Pack Ivory, $55

"A silk pillowcase keeps moisture in the skin overnight and is great for hair as well," says Dale.

These hypoallergenic pillow cases are made of 100% mulberry silk, which reduces the amount of moisture absorbed from your face, as well as reducing acne, clogged pores and inflammation.

They come in seven colours to match your bedroom.

Bioderma Atoderm Ultra-Nourishing Cream, $18

Remember there is skin all over your body, not just your face!

A rich moisturiser is essential for the rest of your body during the cooler months.

This is lightweight and non-greasy, but leaves skin soft and supple.

"It's great for sensitive and dry skin," adds Dale.

This retinol-infused renewal serum is designed to plump and hydrate.

It contains organic aloe vera and chamomile extract bisabolol to soothe and give great glow all winter long.
