This time of year can be tough on our skin, one minute you are outside braving the elements next minute you are in a drying air con environment.
Your Skin Care regime should be stepped up a little heading into the Winter Months.
Firstly prep Skin with a Gentle Exfoliation once a week, getting it ready to receive all those gorgeous products you are going to be putting on it.
Gentle Cleansers or Balms that won’t strip the skin
Not as scary as it sounds, this actually draws moisture to your skin and help to absorb your favourite Skincare products. Great under your regular moisturiser. For all skin types, just apply where your skin needs it. It’s all about finding your own skin prescription.
A little richer, giving more protection against changes in the atmosphere.
I’m personally a big fan of oils for the face. Those with oiler complexions should not be afraid to use them. Your skin will absorb what it needs.
There are also lots of affordable oils out there, The Ordinary does several.
This skin ‘hero’ can be used anywhere that needs a little more help.
Another product I have been using on my Menswear Shoots recently is Beard Balm. Not just for full beards but any facial hair. It’s not only really conditioning but gives a ‘finished’ groomed look.
At the end of a busy day the best treat I find for your skin is to add this to a warm bath
It rebalances your entire body putting essential salts back into your skin without any artificial products.
And last but not least don’t forget your lips. Getting them ready for puckering up under the Mistletoe!
