Now is the time to be winter-proofing your skin to help you withstand the harsher climate. In winter the skin becomes more sensitive and barrier impaired and loses essential moisture, so we need additional steps to fortify and protect the skin. It only takes one or two booster products to make a world of difference so here are my top tips as we head into the darkest part of winter!

 

Priori Advanced AHA Barrier Repair Complex is an old friend but a good friend this time of year. This daily moisturiser does exactly what it says on the tin! It is oil-free so provides an option for clients who prefer a serum texture but its ceramides, essential fatty acids and soothing complex ensure skin is protected against extremes of temperature and other sensitising conditions.

 

I also recommend using the SOS product Vitage Age Defence Hydrating Mask 2-3 times per week as a hydration boosting mask or as a night cream for several consecutive nights for a more intensive treatment. This mask combines Blackcurrant Seed and Rosehip Oil to repair barrier function with soothing botanicals and healing marine extracts to soothe and restore.
