As the weather gets colder, it’s not uncommon for our skin condition to change along with the temperature. Dry winter air and low humidity levels can compromise the skin’s moisture, resulting in dehydrated, flaky skin that can only be further irritated by harsh conditions like snow, wind and rain. While it’s impossible to change the weather, you can alter your skincare routine to accommodate to the cooler months, making sure you harness that coveted glass skin glow year-round.
We’ve assembled 7 of our go-to products to keep your complexion looking balanced and healthy during the fall and winter period. We’ve prioritised light, gentle formulas that won’t stress out your skin, aiming to preserve moisture and strengthen the skin’s barrier for a radiance that transcends the season.
