Malin+Goetz Bergamot Hand Treatment

If we've ever forgotten to take our gloves on a walk, we’ll slather on a layer of this intensely nourishing hand cream as soon as we get indoors to restore our hands and nails. Other reasons to love it - the refreshing bergamot scent, handy size that fits perfectly in your dog walking bag or pocket, it leaves no residue on your hands and it's cruelty free.

Priced £12 from Malinandgoetz.co.uk

Aesop Resurrection Rinse Free Handwash

You don't need us to tell you about the mess and mishaps that can occur on a dog walk but it’s for this reason we always carry some sort of hand sanitiser wherever we go. Our product of choice comes from Aesop. It doesn't give off the same strong almost clinical smell as other handwashes – instead it smells citrussy, wood, herby and quite delicious – and it doesn't dry your hands out either.

Priced from £7 at Aesop.com

Egyptian Magic Cream

Made entirely from natural ingredients including olive oil, beeswax and royal jelly, this product has achieved cult status in beauty world as a multi-use essential to heal and moisturise the skin. We use it when our skin has taken a beating from the cold weather, slapping it on to counteract any dryness.

Lucas Papaw Ointment

You’ll find a tube of this knocking round in pretty much all of our bags. Why? Because like a multi-use product such as Sudacrem, it’s a bit of an all-rounder topical product to help with everything from wounds, insect bites, sunburn, splinters etc. We tend to use ours for dry lips from winter walks or hot sunny days, and on a sore nose when we’re suffering a cold.

Priced approximately £6.50 from Amazon.co.uk.

Malin+Goetz SPF 30 High Protection

Owning a dog means you spend a lot of time outdoors and while lots of people only think you need SPF in the summer months, wearing sun protection all year round will help fight premature aging and more serious skincare damage including skin cancer. Having hosted regular events with our friends at Malin+Goetz we have really bought into the brilliance of their products, which is why we use their SPF 30 High Protection all year round. With both UVA and UVB filters to protect the face and body, it's suitable for all skin types including sensitive and be used as a base for make-up application.

Priced £32 from Malinandgoetz.co.uk
