For skin vulnerable to the harsh elements, this contains an SPF of 35 and essential oils of borage seed and grape seed.

2. Intense repair body balm

The much-loved, rich Norwegian formula is ideal for extremely dry skin. There’s also an unperfumed version for sensitive skin.

3. Frankincense  Hydrating Cream

£21.25, Neal’s Yard Remedies,  nealsyardremedies.com

While frankincense and myrrh claim to rejuvenate, this cream is also packed with herbal goodness.

4. Replenishing Face Cream

£10.57, Eucerin, eucerin.co.uk

Chapped skin can be a real curse, but this non-greasy formula should go some  way to soothe damaged skin and help repair its natural moisture levels.

5. Melissa Day Cream

£24.95, Dr Hauschka, drhauschka.co.uk

This cream is aimed at sensitive combination skin conditions, helping soothe reddened skin whilst helping dry zones stay moisturised.

6. SOS Hand Balm

There is nothing worse than chapped hands, so a good hand cream is a must, and this intensive concentrated formula will keep your mitts presentable.

7. Confort Extreme Day Cream

This luxury cream will deeply moisturise whilst still leaving your skin feeling refreshed thanks to its velvety consistency. For use on very dry and sensitive skin.

8. 24-Hour Skin Saviour

£33, ESPA, espaonline.com

 Evening primrose oil, shea butter and manuka oil ensure this is a moisture-rich product which is intense enough for once-daily use. It smells deliciously spa-like.

9. Santal Face Treatment Oil

£29, Clarins, clarins.co.uk

Don’t be afraid of oils for the face, this product is like performing a mini-facial. Each night, warm a couple of drops into your hand before pressing into skin.

£7.15, Aveeno, Superdrug

Fragrance-free, so ideal for those with super-sensitive skin. This product really soaks quickly into the skin.
