Nonchalant ~ Protecting Your Face For Winter

Protecting Your Face For Winter

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.

Dry skin

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.
