Holy balls! Has the temperature dropped recently; we’ve gone from rocking t-shirts as outerwear to bundling up in scarves and hats in under a week. In London especially, the harsh weather has wreaked havoc on our skin, even more so if you’re a daily commuter…eau de B.O. is so last season.
So, whether you are a pore professional or night cream newbie, we have gathered the essentials to keep your face soft and moisturised this winter.
With dry skin, the key is adding moisture. Sadly, as we get older, the more likely you are to suffer from dry skin, as your hormones level out and stop producing excess oil.
Application: Three or four drops morning or evening
Scent: Light citrus scent
Application: Two to three drops every morning or evening
Oily skin is a plague for most people. Unless you want to carry around a powder compact at all times, any change in weather can suddenly cause your face to go from dewy and youthful to sweaty and mirror-like. These creams will help to minimise the moisture. no matter how much it chucks it down outside.
Texture: Lightweight, gel-based cream
Application: Scrub face once or twice a day and wash off
A face mask is a great way to pamper your skin once a week when your face has had enough and just wants to soak up all the moisture! It is recommended to use these at night time, to ensure that your skin can absorb moisture overnight.
Benefits: Charcoal is the ingredient of the minute. With its deep cleansing and purifying elements, it is great for skin that battles the harsh pollution of London
Application: Apply a thin layer, let dry and wash off!
Benefits: Sheet masks may make you look a bit bizarre but they are amazing for moisture. Normally left on for about 15 minutes, they easily peel off leaving skin silky smooth!
Application: Take out of the packet, line up with your face and take a quiet 15
Hopefully, our above suggestions give you some inspiration to protect your skin, especially as it gets colder.
