The days are darker, the temperature has dropped and, let's face it, things aren't going to warm up anytime soon. Winter is well and truly upon us, and with it, a host of weather-dependent skin issues arise.
Winter plays a cruel game with our skin. The natural moisture on your skin makes your face icy cold, but you need that extra moisture for when you’re inside and the heating is drying skin out!
From dry skin and chapped lips, to lacklustre tone and face mask induced breakouts, there's an array of skin problems that crop up periodically without adequate prep and care. Luckily, with a few minor tweaks to your existing regime, involving products you already have, it's easy to ward off unwanted skin problems and keep your complexion glowing and healthy all season long.
Here are some useful winter skincare tips to see you through the cooler months...
Keep Moisture In The Air
Our skin is the barrier that keeps water inside of your body, so when it is dry and cold, water evaporates off of the surface faster and easier. To prevent dryness, i recommended using a humidifier. Humidifiers are a great way to add moisture back into your home, especially if you’re prone to blasting the heat up! I love to add a few drops of lemongrass essential oil to my humidifier which brings a breath of freshness to the air.
