The Winter Skincare Edit
“Feeling the cold? Your skin is probably feeling it too.”
Winter might inspire cozy open fires, comfort food and cashmere, but it’s also the season that can be most challenging for skin. The condition of your skin can change dramatically as the temperatures drop. Exposure to the cold, a lack of humidity, brisk winds and an increase in central heating can disrupt the skin’s natural moisture barrier, leading to skin dryness, dehydration, flakiness, redness and irritation. Basically, all the things you don’t want.
A few simple switch-ups to your winter skincare routine can help combat environmental stressors. It might be time to retire the gel or foaming cleanser in place of a milk or balm, swap your moisturiser for something a little more hydrating – or add in a few drops of a facial oil for extra nourishment, or include a serum and weekly mask for extra defence and protection.
