FROM THE OUTSIDE:
CLEANSINGDon't be afraid to switch up your usual cleanser. As the season changes, your skin may change, so look for alternative options. Using an oil-based cleanser that is either rinsed or wiped off the skin can help dry skin. This type of cleanser does not wash the natural oils from the skin, leaving the skin’s barrier layer intact, soothing and nourishing dry skin.
MOISTURISINGMake sure you are moisturising, this will build a strong barrier layer which is essential to defend skin against the environmental damage that winter causes. Use a good quality, rich moisturiser which contains hydration ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid and natural oils.
FROM THE INSIDE:Boost winter skin care from the inside by making sure cells retain enough moisture when it is very dry and cold outside.
DRINKWater acts like a moisturiser, but from the inside out so ensure you drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated.
FOODMake sure that you include plenty of essential fatty acids in your diet. These acids help to maintain the skin's natural oil barrier, which is vital in keeping skin hydrated and plump. Some foods packed with fatty acids that we can recommend are:
- Dark Green Leafy Veg
- Dark Chocolate (hurray!)
