We hear it every year in all the magazines. Young or old, Winter is harsh on your skin, it gets battered about by the weather, and we’re probably all guilty of just slathering lots of make up on, or not really changing up our routine from the Summer months.
Now we all know that skincare can be very expensive, so here at Mr Lender, we are revealing our favourite tips to help you cut down on spends but still look great (and more importantly, have great winter skin and hair).
DIY lip scrub
Winter can be really harsh on your skin, but none more so than your lips. Keep yours puckering soft, with our very basic recipe, that just means a tiny raid of your kitchen cupboard and a little bit of legwork.
Mix a little bit of brown sugar, with a tiny bit of honey, some olive oil and either some cocoa powder or ground cinnamon. Once applied let it sink in for a couple of minutes.
If kept in an airtight kilner jar, it will keep for a couple of weeks, and should be guaranteed to give you soft Spring ready lips!

Plumping lip gloss
Whilst we’re on the subject of lips, instead of shelling out for one of those pricy lip plumping lip glosses, all you need to do is add a few drops of peppermint oil to the gloss you already own! EASY.
Avocados and honey both have great softening elements to them. Combining the two, (use a very very ripe avocado if you can), and leaving on your face to soften that battered winter complexion will leave your face feeling revitalised. Once rinsed, finish off with your regular moisturiser.
Scent-sational bargain haircare
Lavender oil is great for hair, skin and wellbeing.
Adding a few drops of lavender oil to your regular shampoo will not only help lift the scent of your hair, it can also create shine. A tiny bottle will go a really long way. We would also recommend adding a few drops to your pillow, to help aide your beauty sleep.
