The grey skies and long winter nights can leave you feeling less motivated and have you struggling to leave the snuggly comfort of your bed. But that doesn’t have to equal dry skin, chapped lips and wind-swept hair (not in the photo shoot kind of way) because we’ve got you covered. From Sydney’s best beauty salons to products designed for the laziest of us in mind, you’re guaranteed to leave winter looking hot and ready for summer.
