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.
While spring is the season we most often associate with a proper home cleaning, as our days grow shorter and colder, I’m finding myself motivated by the start of autumn to complete this task.
I’d say today officially begins the countdown to spring, however this week’s weather is a reminder that winter is still with us. Along with chilly temps and snow, your skin may also be reminding you that the season hasn’t changed yet.
While I’ve got my face hydration programme down pat, with season and travel modifications, I have routinely been plagued by dry lips, particularly in autumn and winter. In the spring and summer, they stay fairly well hydrated, but with the slightest dip in temperature, they seem to lose all moisture retention properties.
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).
