New Winter Treatments
As the winter season approaches so does the onset of environmental changes to our skin’s condition which can lead to a whole range of uncomfortable issues. Icy cold winds and subzero temperatures strip vital lipids from the skin resulting in dryness, flakiness and a lackluster dull appearance. The inside environment has little moisture in the air as we crank up the central heating which can leave skin feeling tight and with more fine lines. These temperature fluctuations can lead to sensitivity as we move from freezing cold outside to warm and toasty inside leading to impairment of the skins natural barrier function. The lips are particularly prone to dryness at this time of year, with flaking and chapping leaving them sore and sensitive.
