Naturally our skincare products change from season to season as our skin reacts differently depending on the climate. During the warmer summer months a light moisturiser is perfect to hydrate the skin, whereas the same moisturiser in winter can show dry and flaky skin. Our skin requires more hydration during the cold months, with a desire for hand cream, lip treatments and emollients.
We have chosen our top 5 skincare essentials to ensure your skin is hydrated, glowing and radiant through the cold and windy winter months...
