The reality of winter has truly set in and the weather just feels cold. While we all protect our bodies from the chilly weather with hats, coats, scarves and gloves, it’s often easy to forget to protect the exposed skin on our faces. We’re here to help with your complexion intervention to keep your skin from looking dry and lacklustre. This doesn’t need to involve a whole new skincare wardrobe, it’s just about making small tweaks and using your products in the right way. The key is to hydrate, brighten, soothe and protect.
Why adapt your skincare routine?
As we all know, wintertime brings its own set of challenges and this applies to our skin too. The drop in temperature, indoor heating and lower air humidity reduces the skin’s ability to protect itself and results in drier, dull and more sensitive skin. But don’t worry there’s still hope, even on the darkest of days. Here are our tips to keep your skin looking radiant and clear...
Change your cleanser
Cleansers are key to your regime as they create the base for your routine and help your subsequent products to be effectively absorbed. In wintertime skin is drier and more sensitive so you want to be using gentle cleansers that hydrate and nourish. If you are using a foaming or exfoliating cleanser and find that your skin is dry you should switch to a creamy cleanser or cleansing milk. For dry skin, opt for a balm cleanser or oil-based formula as these are specifically designed to prevent moisture loss.
