Chapped Hands

Exposed to the elements, hands often bear the brunt of cold weather, and dry hands are especially common in winter if you’re prone to symptoms of sensitive skin like inflammation or eczema. Dryness and chapping can be caused by exposure to dry winds and cold water. Sufferers with very dry skin are also more susceptible to sensitivity from soaps and other products. Keep a tube of hand cream in your bag to keep hands hydrated on the move, and try to use immediately after washing hands. Before bed, use a rich formula that can soak in overnight to leave palms feeling soft by morning.

Red Faced

No matter how much foundation you slap on, those red cheeks and Rudolph nose just won’t disappear. When you go from inside to outside in the winter, you’re challenging your skin to adapt quickly from hot to cold and cold to hot. Unfortunately, this process causes the capillaries in the face to contract and expand rapidly leading to broken veins and skin redness. Protect your skin from temperature variations with Vitamin C. Try a hydrating serum containing vitamin C and antioxidants to minimise and soothe damaged skin whilst nourishing and protecting.

Snake Skin

When you undress at night, your clothes are covered in an unsightly speckling of dead skin. Cold winds and central heating both take their toll on your skin, sapping it of essential moisture. Many people experience itching, flaking and dryness in winter. The outer layer of our epidermis needs to maintain adequate moisture levels in order to preserve its function as a protective barrier. Step up your skin care routine with intensely hydrating products. Apply your moisturiser to damp skin within two or three minutes of getting out of the bath or shower, to lock in moisture and minimise dehydration.

Cold Customer

You feel like you’ve constantly got the shivers and only a steaming hot bath will help. Ease up on the hot tap. When baths and showers are hotter than they should be, it can increase skin sensitivity. Hot water will strip your skin’s barrier, increase circulation and heighten nerve responses in the skin - all contributing to increased sensitivity and prolonged flushing. Reduce your water temperature, ideally to tepid or slightly warm. If the very idea gives you a chill, at least cool the temperature down when cleansing your face, as the skin tissue on the face, neck and chest is more vulnerable to developing sensitivity.

Flaky Scalp

It’s snowing ... on your shoulders due to an abrupt case of dandruff. Like the skin on your body, your scalp can become dehydrated during cold snaps. Upping the central heating can also create a sudden imbalance. An irritated dry scalp can throw your hair out of balance causing flaking, redness and all round upset. Soothe your scalp with a nourishing conditioner or hair mask that’s free of harsh synthetic ingredients to help replenish lost moisture. Wearing a hat can also help protect your hair during the winter.

Winter Regime

Keep Jack Frost out and hydration in with these top tips: :: Exfoliate less often - dry, winter skin may only need it once a week. :: Use a soap-free, emollient wash to avoid depleting the skin’s natural oils. :: Gently pat skin dry after your shower as rough towel drying can irritate sensitive winter skin. :: Apply body moisturiser straight after a shower to lock moisture in when the skin’s water content is at its highest. :: Be generous with your moisturiser - aim to use 30ml for each top-to-toe application.

FILM REVIEWS MARY POPPINS Reviewed by Sally Walters

PG

When I first heard the film Mary Poppins had been made into a hollywood blockbuster, I was a little uncertain, thinking are they going to ruin my childhood memories of watching this film over and over again at Christmas with my sisters, mesmorised by the cartoon back effects clashing with real life characters, singing along to Dick Van Dykes over the top cockney accent, with enthusiasm and joy. My kids, who are now young adults never enjoyed the original as much as I did, which totally shocked me! So in the end I went along with a friend to watch this one, but after doing a little christmas shopping in the town to get me in the festive mood, because to me, Mary Poppins will always be a classic, christmas movie! Well, what can I say, with Emily Blunt playing Poppins, a more savvy and worldly wiser character than she was in the original, there are also a few more famous faces popping up in smallish roles, with Julie Walters, Angela Lansbury and the brilliant Meryl streep making her mark without overshadowing Blunt. Technology has move on leaps and bounds since we first tasted a spoonful of sugar, but the animation and special effects are kept simple, just a little slicker than before, retaining the innocence that was in that era. But the new songs, I really don’t think will be as memorable as our much-loved classics ‘Let’s go fly a kite’ and ‘Chim Chim Che-ee blah blah, you know the songs I am sure! In short, the new Mary Poppins Returns is still a solid, reliable family fare which will leave you smiling even if you are not really into a cheesy disney film. Though to me, you just cannot replace the original loved by us all who grew up in the 70s/80s era!

Showcasing a new winter exhibition at As a year of events and exhibitions that celebrate the influence and legacies of women at National Trust places around the country comes to a close, visitors to Ickworth can discover a new winter trail around the estate, featuring new artworks of some of the most important women in its history. Suffolk artist John Williams has created a series of elusive, illusion-based interpretations of eight of the important women from throughout Ickworth’s history, and these artworks will be hung and displayed around the estate’s Albana Walk from 1 December to the end of February. John, who also volunteers at Ickworth, said: “Each artwork features examples of the legacy each woman left to us, from Geraldine Anson’s wide collection of silver fishes and fans, to Theodora, 4th Marchioness of Bristol’s influence in the decision to gift Ickworth to the National Trust, ensuring its conservation and protection.” “My use of illusions fit themselves to the fact that they, the women, have not only influenced and shaped 92 | JANUARY 2019

Ickworth

the landscape or the house, but rather they are the landscape and everything we see today.” John is no stranger to Ickworth; he has spent the last two years volunteering as a Resident Sculptor, taking inspiration from Ickworth’s past and present to create wood carvings from old tree stumps, giving them a new lease of life and creating a legacy for the future. During December, these sculptures will be lit up in the early dusk, giving visitors an opportunity to see them in a new way. To mark the 2018 centenary of some women first winning the right to

vote, the National Trust has taken the opportunity to celebrate the women who helped shape and create many of the places it now cares for. Ickworth is one of many Trust places around the country to take part in the programme, called Women and Power, and this year visitors have been able to discover more about Theodora, the Fourth Marchioness of Bristol. Theodora is widely credited with launching and leading on a programme of modernising and enhancing the building, including greatly improving the living conditions of servants there at the time.

Visit Ickworth this winter to discover this new exhibition and uncover those untold stories. For more information please visit nationaltrust.org.uk/Ickworth.
