When the winter months hit, heating goes on and skin changes to dry. We’ve got our experts here to help!
The change in environment from cold, wind and rain outside, to the dryness of central heating indoors makes it hard for the skin to maintain healthy levels of hydration and keep that glow. Being hit by heating means moisture is drawn out of the skin; making dry skin drier and oily skin even oilier to compensate for the dehydration. Often skin is then exposed to rain, wind and residual moisture in the air when going outside, and that change causes further damage and reaction.
So how do you combat this ever-changing atmosphere, and keep skin consistently healthy and happy in winter? We’ve got the answers for you right here…
