Tips for Radiant Winter Skin. New Year New You

The cold winter months can play havoc on our skin. Indoor heating, harsh winds, cool temps suck the moisture right out of the skin, making it feel dull, parched

Combat cold weather with these tips to give your skin a richly deserved refresh to achieve winter-ready radiant skin.

1. Take shorter warm not hot baths and showers

Hot water can dry out the skin. Take shorter baths and showers using warm water. Be sure to pat – don't rub – your skin dry and follow up with a moisturizer while your skin is still damp to help the cream penetrate. Use a body moisturiser is within five minutes of having showered, as that is when your skin is able to absorb the most moisture.

2. Use a super-hydrating moisturizer

One that goes deep into the skin once it is clean. You may also want to supplement with a hydrating serum or masque that includes a high dose of Hyaluronic Acid.

3. Exfoliate

This is the time when your skin really needs the benefit of moisture and clear pores to help regulate the growth of new cells. The winter cold gives us dry itchy skin and exfoliating will certainly help your skin absorb moisture and alleviate the negative effects of too many dead skin cells.

Professional exfoliants usually remove dead skin cells with high-strength topical formulations of acids and enzymes. These exfoliants tend to deliver more powerful results after a series of treatments.

The best method for you will depend on your skin condition and concerns, as well as personal preferences, time and money. In general, the more sensitive your skin is, the less friction and frequency you'll want to use.
