Winter skin saviours

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.

A few of my favourite things

It’s the time of year where lists recapping the best of the past 12 months are everywhere.  And because I love a list, I’ve used this concept to inspire skincare items that I can’t be without.  Well, let’s be generous and call them skincare-related, remembering that I believe good skincare is the foundation on which everything else is built.

Hand gestures

In the winter, my hands can become as chapped as my lips.  Even though I apply facial serum and moisturiser to my hands on a daily basis (just what’s left on my palms), when the mercury drops and the air gets drier, I need to pay special attention to maintain softness.  Particularly as rough hands make for a less than enjoyable treatment for my clients. 

Wearing more layers? It's time to change your skincare

For most of us, our daily skincare regime is as routine as brushing our teeth.  And while well-established habits make it easy for us to accomplish a task, as the weather changes, it’s important to re-examine what you’re using on your skin to be sure it’s right for what you need at the moment.
