Top 5 tips to keep your skin healthy in winter


The Winter weather can play havock on our skin. With dropping temperatures, low humidty levels and harsh winds, we need to keep our skin moisturised and protected. Without immediate care, dry skin can lead to cracking, and loss of essential moisturising oils. Lucy, our Spa Manager has some top tips and Elemis product suggestions to keep your skin looking and feeling its best this Winter.

1. Hydrate & Moisturise

Pump some extra moisture back into your skin by ensuring you keep yourself hydated, drinking at least 2 letres of water a day should definitely do the trick. It's also a good idea to apply some extra moisture using some of our personal favourite products such as Elemis Hydra Boost. 



Use our recommended skin buff 1-2 times a week to get rid of excess skin cells caused by skin being drier, preferably followed by a moisturing face mask. 


Using cellular recovery capsules to detox your skin with just a 30-day programme, perfect for stressed or hormonal skin, especially after party season and over indulging! The programme repairs signs of aging and leaves skin healthy and glowing.


Elemis' Pro Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm instantly brightens and tightens your skin for a smooth, even, and luminous complexion during the cold winter months. It makes for the perfect make-up base, a true multi-action skin pick-me-up; light daily moisturiser, radiance booster or make-up primer!

The best spa in Cornwall

I have just had the pleasure of going to the newly refurbished St. Michaels Spa with a group of friends. When you stepped into the water it was so warm and clear and felt like the most luxurious bath. There were lots of fantastic seating areas in the pool with jets that massaged all my aches and pains in all the right areas. They also had some really powerful, pummelling, overhead jets for your shoulders which were amazing...

The spa is amazing

I went here at the weekend for a hen spa day. The facilities are amazing, I was honestly in shock. There were two steam rooms with different aromas, an inside and outside sauna, and the pool was fantastic. I had the 60 minute massage with lavender and it was so good I nearly fell asleep. I really cannot rate how impressed I was by the spa and will be coming back for sure.
