It’s been a while since I wrote about skincare ingredients and because it’s winter and your skin may need a moisture boost, today seems a good time to cover hyaluronic acid.
Although we may not be at the winter solstice yet, the weather outside is starting to look frightful. And playing havoc with our skin.
I have written before that as the seasons change, so should our skincare. Hopefully, you’ve already taken notice of this and have upped your skin hydration game as needed. What can get missed in this seasonal exchange is body care, which I wanted to make note of today.
Does any of this ever describe your skin:
Feels rough but still breaks out
Make-up becomes patchy during the day
Fine lines are suddenly more visible
In the winter months, we often find out skin can become dehydrated easily thanks to chilly temperatures and dry air. While a winter skincare routine is essential, sometimes we need an additional boost. For this challenge, I like to apply a sleeping mask (or sleep pack as it’s called in Korean skincare).
Recently, I had a conversation with a client about cleansing and hydrating waters for the skin (see my post on micellar and thermal waters if you want to learn more). This segued into the importance of internal hydration and I realised how many client consultations reveal that we aren’t always reaching the goal of consuming 2 litres per day.
