The winter season is officially making its way in, and we all know what that means… hot steaming baths, central heating and horrible harsh winds outside, none of which lend themselves to providing you with a flawless complexion and healthy glow, making winter our number one skin enemy!
Naturally, a lot of people turn to moisturisers and creams when their skin starts changing over winter. However, the best thing that our skin experts can recommend is to drink more water and rehydrate yourself. The cool air is a lot dryer than what we’re normally used to, especially when we start to use central heating which dries the air out even more. This means that there’s far less moisture in the air, and has an instant impact on the texture of your skin. It’s not the perfect fix, but we promise you that if you increase your water consumption you will see a difference.
Another important habit to get into, especially in the winter, is to use a face cleanser instead of face wipes, which are packed full of chemicals that dry your skin out! We can recommend our Thalgo Make-up Removing Cleansing Gel-Oil, which will remove your makeup gently, leaving your face feeling soft and refreshed as well as smelling beautiful as it’s packed full of essential oils. This is suitable for all skin types and can be bought both in-store and on our website for just £29.
Exfoliating is another good practice that will refresh tired-looking skin. It is important not to do this daily and instead just once or twice a week to prevent your skin from becoming irritated. By doing this, you will clean and unclog your pores, which will allow treatments to work more effectively. You can use the Thalgo Eveil A La Mer Gentle Exfoliator that we have in-store and online for only £30. The Thalgo products use pure spring water that is rich in vitamins and minerals to help revitalise your skin.
Moisturising is, as always, crucial but it’s important you pick the right one for your skin type. Our skin experts at Serenity offer a free of charge skin consultation to help you work out which products you should be using or avoiding. They can also guide you through the products we house in-store and online and you’ll leave us with a plan for radiant skin and a perfect complexion!
