Battling the Elements
During the exciting lead up to Christmas we all rediscover our love for ugly jumpers and await the infamous M&S (Marks and Spencer) and John Lewis adverts, there’s one Winter tradition that we would happily live without – the weather’s effect on the skin…*sigh*
No matter your skin type we all have to deal with a massive increase in BOTH ‘Dryness’ and ‘Dehydration’, which is everything but, Jolly!
Dehydration occurs when the skin has a lack of water making the skin look dull and ironically ‘washed-out’. Dryness occurs when the skin has a lack of natural oils. In the winter, both of the conditions are amplified, meaning we ALL NEED MORE ‘Water’ & ‘Oil’
A HelloBody Solution: The Two-Layer Minimum Rule
When the temperature drops the layers come out. All of a sudden you can’t leave the house without; winter thermals, polo-necks, jumpers, coat, gloves, a hat and scarf…the list might go on. So why would we treat the skin any differently during the same period.
It’s time to introduce The 2-Layer-Minimum Rule!
LAYER ONE: Moisturiser
COCO Line Moisturisers:
COCO DAY: Start your day off right by giving your face a healthy dose of moisture. Formulated with oils such as; Sweet Almond Oil and Coconut Oil, this cream smooths, softens and maintains the skin hydration levels. But the wonders don’t stop there! Also containing peat extract, it purifies the epidermis and fights against external aggressors.
COCO SOFT: Our detox night cream works during your sleep by deeply nourishing your skin, and helping it to regenerate. Composed of avocado oil and shea butter. A rich and creamy texture which also contains peat extract for purified skin overnight.

ALOÉ NIGHT: This night cream is deeply nourishing and hydrating the skin. Composed primarily of moisturising ingredients such as Aloe Vera, Hyaluronic Acid and Cucumber Water, its formula is complemented by nourishing Plum Kernel Oil, as well as Galactoarabinan – an active ingredient of plant origin that forms a film on the skin to minimise the loss of water.
LAYER TWO: Serum
COCO Line Serums:
COCO GOLD: Our most precious face oil is a treasure for your skin! The 24-carat gold particles help you achieve that shimmering complexion as well as containing a complementary mix of ingredients, including: Sweet Almond Oil (moisture retention), 24K Gold (anti-inflammatory) , Coconut Oil (soothing effect).

It contains highly beneficial ingredients such as: Squalane, Watermelon Seed Oil and Aloe Vera that moisturise and help soothe the skin for an even complexion.
Winter is where we throw all caution to the wind – Feel Free to Mix ’n’ Match the two lines, just remember moisturiser first then serum, morning and night no matter the combination just pick the one that works best for you! (P.s. you could even use the COCO PRIME as a second layer. OH, and don’t forget to give your body so love too – Try the COCO MILK!)
