Rough skin, chapped lips, red hands… Every winter our skin goes through the same turmoil. The culprits? The wind and the cold that have the combined effect of restricting and disrupting our blood circulation. In response, a natural mechanism in our bodies jolts into action and starts reducing the natural production of sebum, causing dehydration and all that comes with it: redness, dryness, a feeling of tightness in your skin and the appearance of crocodile skin. Needless to say, no-one wants to get to that point. Avoiding all this is actually quite straightforward and it is ESSENTIAL that you use a moisturiser every day. This is just as important for your face as your body (not forgetting your hands and lips). The best way to go about it is this: every day when you get out of the shower and your skin is completely dry, apply a moisturiser formulated to protect your skin's lipid barrier and help shield it against external aggressors. So, no more excuses, you've been briefed!
