As the cold clear days of winter settle in, they can bring more than just a rosy glow to the cheeks, including uncomfortable dryness flaking and irritation. But here are some simple steps you can take to ensure your skin looks as fresh and hydrated as it does in summer:

Treat your skin

The cooler months are the perfect time to treat any sun damage you have ‘acquired’ over summer. Research what treatments would be best to do deal with any pigmentation. AND any hydration treatments are perfect!

 

Change your skin care

Artificially heated environments dry out our skin and it takes more than a heavy moisturizer to really rehydrate and amping up the antioxidants

 

Slather on the sunscreen

Winter sun can still damage your skin so make sure you apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen to your face and your hands about 30 minutes before going outside. Reapply frequently if you stay outside a long time  – especially if you’re a ski bunny as the glare from snow is doubly damaging!

 

Keep lips moisturised

Lips are one of the areas prone to dryness as they do not have oil glands and retain less moisture than the rest of our skin, so make sure you apply and reapply a good moisturising balm and when heading outside, apply a layer of Vaseline over the top to create a protective barrier from the cold.
