Get Winter Ready With These Essential Tips

  • Save

As the brisk winter air settles in, it’s time to equip ourselves with the essentials for a cosy and vibrant season ahead. From bundling up in fashionable layers to nurturing our skin with purposeful moisturisation and fragrances that are complementary to the weather, we’re ready to tackle the chill with confidence and style. Zaweer Ebrahim, brand manager at Playgirl has rounded up his top four tips designed to keep you warm, healthy, and full of energy throughout the winter months.

Bundle up in style

As you bid farewell to the breezy days of summer dresses, it’s time to embrace the cosy comforts of snug sweaters, soft scarves, and fashionable beanies. Layering is your secret weapon to both combat the cold and elevate your fashion game. Mix and match different textures and colours to create a look that’s uniquely you.

Moisturise with purpose

Don’t let the winter wind wreak havoc on your skin! It’s essential to maintain its hydration and health, especially when faced with the harsh elements of the season. Combat dryness and irritation by incorporating a nourishing lotion into your daily routine. Treat yourself to the indulgent experience of Playgirl Flirtatious Body Lotion or Crème, a luxurious moisturiser enriched with Hydra-Plus™.

This unique blend of oils and vitamins, along with the hydrating properties of jojoba oil, works wonders to leave your skin feeling irresistibly soft, supple, and beautifully moisturised, even on the coldest of winter days.


Warm-ups are a year-round essential, but they take on added importance in the winter chill. Why? Because cold muscles are prime targets for strains and injuries. So, before braving the wintery outdoors, treat your muscles to some dynamic movements. Then, when you step outside, you’ll be ready to tackle whatever adventures come your way with flexibility and resilience.

Spice up your dinner

We often label spicy food as “hot,” but did you know that certain spices can heat you from the inside out? When the mercury takes a dip, consider sprinkling a dash of ginger, cayenne, or cinnamon into your dishes. Not only do these spices add a flavourful punch, but they also kickstart circulation and give you that cosy, warming sensation.

It’s like a delicious double whammy of flavour and warmth, especially considering their antioxidant superpowers. What’s more, some spices lend a helping hand during the winter sniffle season. Take ginger, for instance—it is known to ease breathing when the flu bug comes knocking.
