There’s no doubting the fact that the British Winters weather our skin. Although it’s only September, it seems to be getting pretty chilly outside, so it’s probably best of you start thinking about your winter skin regime pretty soon.
The cold temperatures mixed with the central heating, hot showers and soapy detergents that our skin is exposed to in the winter does nothing but take the natural moisture from our skin. In the winter months our skin becomes much drier and itchy and soapy detergents do not help this; they remove oils from the skin’s protective lipids causing it to dry out even further.
If you could look deep into the skin you would see that skin that is lacking in moisture has a weakened natural barrier, this will leave your skin vulnerable to attacking chemicals that can cause redness, irritation and spots.
In order to keep your complexion flawless during the winter you need to keep your skin hydrated – more so than in the summer. Try the Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner; this product rehydrates using Aloe Vera – that helps soften the skin – and cucumber to help freshen and condition the skin. Follow this with a Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque two to three times a week. These masques fill the skin with antioxidants and vitamins that protect against free radicals; they also restore moisture and disguise the look of fine lines. You should use the Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque on clean skin and moisturise after.
