Winter is here, and for most skins this means a drier more dull and dehydrated complexion.. This is because due to the environmental changes our skin struggles to moisturize itself naturally.. So now is really not the time to skimp on vital skincare! Often we take shortcuts and fall back to just using a minimalist daily cleanser and moisturizer. This may be adequate for some basic maintenance, but if your experiencing dryness or have a skincare concern you would like to see improved, now is the time to up the anti! If you haven't already done so, we recommend you introduce serums (so important!) under your day and night creams, consider a richer moisturizer (especially at night) and give your skin a boost using a weekly hydrating mask, Here are some products we recommend to combat the effects of the cold and keep skin at its best this Winter.
