With winter’s grey skies and short days it’s no wonder that at this time of year women want to turn up the shine, sparkle and glamour. Bold lips, smoky eyes and sparkly party dresses are top of the list, but dry, dull skin can be a nuisance.

Emma, with the experience of her ‘glam squad’ reveals in this video how women can ensure they feel confident to embrace endless outfit choices throughout the party season, even in the colder weather.

Emma says “ The biggest change I notice in the winter months is with my skin. I find all the cold weather and central heating leaves it feeling more dull, dry and easily irritated. So for me, finding little ways to make my skincare routine work harder is my winter beauty priority,” says Emma, “My bathroom beauty secret is the Venus Embrace Sensitive. I used to be wary about shaving in the winter when my skin feels more sensitive, but then Venus gave me this Embrace Sensitive razor to try, and it’s really made a difference. There are so many beautiful dresses this time of year, and with my skin looking and feeling great I am confident go for a flattering mid-thigh length – perfect for dancing in!

Emma’s product of choice, the Venus Embrace Sensitive, is especially designed to deliver a close shave with less feel of irritation1 thanks to its five curve-hugging, spring-mounted blades and protective ribbon of moisture with a touch of aloe, but don’t take our word for it: it’s dermatologically tested and accredited by the Skin Health Alliance2too.

Try these top tips shared by Emma:

  • Turning down the central heating and showering in warm (not hot) water to help keep skin from becoming dehydrated because hot water can strip skin of its natural oils – and if you can, use a humidifier too
  • Find a moisturiser that has Vitamin C in it to help brighten skin
  • Shave regularly with the Venus Embrace Sensitive as shaving exfoliates skin so can prevent it looking dull

Venus Embrace Sensitive is available in all major UK retail outlets. 

  • Venus Embrace Sensitive RRP £10.99
  • Venus Embrace Sensitive blades 4 pack RRP £10.49
