Extra TLC for your skin this Winter

Cold winds are just one part of a preventable skin problem. Throw into the mix, moisture sapping effects of your central heating and you’ve got yourself a potential problem for your skin. Help is at hand. It’s time to reassess your skincare products for this time of year. Make sure they’re going to give your skin the extra TLC it needs.


Without good protection, your skin barrier (the uppermost layer that keeps the ‘good stuff’ in and the ‘bad stuff’ out) may become damaged. Not only letting your essential oils and moisture escape but letting environmental aggressors in. This causes damage at cellular and surface levels of your skin.


Extreme changes of temperature will play havoc if your skin is not protected


Protect your skin during Autumn and Winter. Don’t put away your SPF! Sun protection is the best weather protection. UV is often still high during Autumnal walks at the weekend. Standing on the side-lines at a Saturday morning football match, with the wind biting your cheeks. These will all call for some extra TLC, as will the change of temperature from your warm home or office to the cold outside.


Switch to Rich…


If you’re used to a lightweight Skin Defence Cream. Switch to Rich - opt for our richer version for more protection, to help your skin stay healthy in the winter months ahead.


Rich enough already?...


If you already prefer our richer textures. Try switching your concentrate. We recommend the Nurturing Night Balm. As the name suggests it’s our overnight, skincare hero. Ideal when your skin becomes parched of its natural oils during the cold winter months. A little goes a long way (your hands will thank you for some TLC too).

Concentrate for Dry Skin works to boost your cells energy. To ensure that your skin is effectively taking care of its own production of protective oils and producing good levels of strengthening proteins, such as collagen and elastin. It’s an extra layer that your skin will be thankful for.


Your final coat of skin armour…


A layer of Daily DNA Defence SPF30 is so lightweight you won’t know you’re wearing it. It will protect your skin from the cold and wind. But also, UV rays, pollution particles and blue light from your smart tech. It’s your final coat of skin armour.


Small adjustments are all that’s needed


Changing skincare products with the seasons is a good idea. Have you thought about switching some of your skincare products to prepare for the winter months ahead? Small adjustments are all that’s needed. You don’t have to put away all your skincare favourites, just change 1 or 2 things.

Product layering is key


For the ultimate protection fine layers of product will give you the best protection. Just like a professional nail treatment. Your nail varnish or gel isn’t applied in one thick layer.

Fail to protect and your skin will take control (but not in good way)!


Without the protection provided by your products. Your skin will form its own protective barrier - nothing will get in. Skincare ingredients will sit superficially on your skin’s surface, giving little result. Nothing can get out (trapped oil) blackheads may form under your skin, with no natural way out they’re really difficult to treat at home.


Keep your skin protected; I try to exfoliate weekly with Essential Exfoliating Gel, and it keeps my skin radiant and strong all winter long.
