Having inhaled every single skincare book, article, and trend you can possibly imagine, I can confidently say I know a thing or two about caring for our skin. Having suffered with cystic adult-acne and been blessed with the hereditary South-American oily skin, it’s safe to say, I’ve tried every product you can think of and the truth of it is, only you know what your skin needs, and what it most certainly does not (toothpaste on your spots – err, no way hozay!)
The winter months can play havoc on your skin; cold temperatures and low humidity levels result in dry air that draws moisture away from the skin. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel my friends and this light is known as, hydration!
Water, moisturiser, and facial oil - your three winter essentials. Ensuring you consume enough water (RDA 3.7L for men; 2.7L for women), a light, paraben-free moisturiser twice a day and introducing a facial oil in your PM routine (vitamin c, jojoba oil or rosehip seed oil) will drastically improve the radiance and texture of your skin. So, say adios to dull winter skin and say hello to awakening your inner glow!
