As the temperature drops and the central heating is switched on, our skin swaps its dewy summer glow for a dry, dehydrated impostor. Stop winter in its tracks and get your skin back on track with a few simple changes to your regime
Cleansing is the first and most important step in your skincare regime. The wrong cleanser will compromise the balance of your skin, making it dry or tight, and the product you loved in the summer months might now need an upgrade. Oily skin? Opt for a foam cleanser or wash. Normal to dry skin? Cream and milk cleansers are the ones for you. Dry or mature skin? We’ve got you covered with balms for maximum comfort and to lock in moisture.
If your skin is looking a little dull lately, now’s the time to reach for the exfoliator. Gently exfoliate away dead skin cells to allow your skincare products to absorb deeper into the skin. We recommend products containing AHA, lactic acid or a 5% glycolic acid. These chemical exfoliators can be used daily, but if you’re new to the amazing world of acids introduce them into your routine slowly.
Alpha hydroxy acid works on the surface of the skin to remove dead skin cells that build up over time
If you suffer from dry skin, a lack of oils and lipids could mean your skin worsens in the winter months. LOOK FOR: rich formulas and oils. Dehydrated skin often gets confused with dry skin as it looks and feels the same. Dehydration comes and goes for periods of time and is due to a lack of water in the skin caused by changes in temperature. LOOK FOR: hyaluronic acid.
Naturally occurring in our bodies, hyaluronic acid attracts water to the skin to keep it hydrated and supple
