Winter skincare


Everyday life can be a bit like a balancing act. Many of us strive for harmony through well-being rituals that revive and rebalance our mind, body and soul. 

From the moment we wake and throughout the day, that quest for harmony impacts on all aspects of our lives, even in our skincare. Whether cleansing or moisturising, what we do to and for our skin on a daily basis impacts directly its overall health and its own feeling of balance.  

The team at AVEENO® believes that healthy-feeling skin starts in the shower. Our morning cleansing ritual is just as important as how we moisturise and protect our skin afterwards. Harsh formulas, over-washing or detox cleansing can all tip the delicate balance of our skin’s health and leave it feeling dry, uncomfortable or dehydrated. 

The AVEENO® Body Wash Collection is designed to gently cleanse the body all over and protect against dryness. Formulated with finely milled, colloidal oatmeal, the range leaves skin feeling clean, comfortable and moisturised.  There are four variants to choose from:

NEW AVEENO® Skin Relief Moisturising Body Wash is clinically proven to gently cleanse leaving skin feeling smooth, clean and fresh whilst helping to reduce skin dryness. When used as part of a regime with AVEENO® Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion, AVEENO® Skin Relief Body Wash with prebiotic triple oat complex helps to improve the balance of the skin’s natural microbiome. 

It leaves skin resilient and healthy looking from day one. Fragrance free and soap free, it is suitable for very dry skin.

AVEENO® Daily Moisturising Body Wash is clinically proven to gently cleanse, leaving your skin with a clean, fresh feeling without dryness. Its unique formula with colloidal oatmeal helps maintain the balance of the skin's natural microbiome and helps preserve the skin's natural moisture barrier for healthy looking skin. Fragrance and soap free, it is suitable for normal to dry or sensitive skin.

AVEENO® Daily Moisturising Yogurt Body Wash, available in Apricot & Honey Scent or Vanilla and Oat Scent, is formulated with colloidal oatmeal and Greek yogurt. Providing an enriching experience that is as good for your skin as it is for your senses, these washes gently cleanse and revitalise, nourishing skin to leave it feeling velvety soft and healthy looking.  Suitable for normal to dry skin types.

A personalised morning ritual can help start your day on the right note and give you that feeling of balance for the rest of the day.  The AVEENO® Body Wash collection has something to suit every-body, helping to deliver that sense of harmony through skincare benefits that begin with cleansing and protecting the skin.  To keep skin hydrated, smooth and health feeling all day long, follow with an AVEENO® moisturiser in your favourite format.

The AVEENO® Body Wash Collection, including NEW AVEENO® Skin Relieve Moisturising Body Wash  is available from leading grocery and pharmacy accounts nationwide.



Winter has officially arrived, ladies.

And with winter comes cosy clothes, cups of hot chocolate…. and cold, cracked skin, right?

If you're determined to keep your skin in tip-top condition this time around, why not follow the advice of Jennifer Rock, AKA The Skin Nerd, who knows a thing or two about caring for your complexion in the cold.

We'll let Jennifer take it from here…

1. Hydration

"I am not a fan of rich creams in general – regardless of having oily or dry skin!" she explains.

"I personally opt for serums as their lightweight texture ensure they penetrate into the lower layers, which serves a more useful purpose. In fact, if the skin is functioning optimally, you will not need a moisturiser as the skin will and should be able to create its own oil and hydration factors."

"Psychologically, people love the feel of the cream as it’s comforting – but remember that a thick cream is not feeding it, just protecting it."

"Layering serums is much more worthwhile. Having said this, those with skin conditions, such as psoriasis or eczema, and those who work outdoors need a barrier cream to protect their skin from the elements."

Acid Exfoliation

"If you haven’t already, I’d recommend ditching granular exfoliation, as it strips the skin and creates micro-tears on its surface."

"Instead, introduce acids such as lactic acid and up your vitamin A intake, as these methods are much more respectful to the skin," Jennifer advises.

"Gritty scrubs do not encourage the skin to work itself out, while an acid will."


"When my skins needs change I tend to change my diet more than my skincare to ensure my skin gets the nutrients it needs."

I increase my intake of fish, omegas, nuts seeds and oils, as this is vital to give the internal skin the tools to lock the moisture in, otherwise we are slapping it on top and not sealing it in."

"You know what I say –‘Feed the skin from within’. There’s only so much a good skincare regime can do!"
