Preparing the Skin During the Cold Weather

During the cold weather, the skin loses its radiance, becomes dull, lifeless and in need of an energising boost. With the festive season now behind us it’s time to take a look at what is needed to put some life back into our skincare routine.


It’s Time for Some Change of Season SOS

Prevention is better than cure. We know the wind, cold and rain during the winter months will play havoc with the best of skins if it is not protected in the right way, layering products will help enormously. (Think of the amount of clothing you wear in the winter compared to the summer and apply the same theory to protect skin).

Following this philosophy, we need to revisit the correct way our prescribed products should be used and treat our skin like the valuable organ that it is, using the corrective serums and creams is a must.

Let’s remind ourselves what is needed to achieve a good skincare routine at home. Here are some reminders of what our routine should consist of and why:



  • Removes dirt, sebum, makeup, pollution and grime: The skin will be more HYDRATED, feeling FRESH and CLEAN. This is one of the most important skincare steps if the skin is not completely clean from impurities, products that are used thereon will sit on the surface of grime and not penetrate into the skin.
  • Excessive dirt builds up on the surface can cause blockages of the follicle, trapping sebum, sweat, and dead skin cells. … Proper skin cleansing clears pores of debris to prevent dirt buildup, allowing the sebum oil to reach the skin surface unimpeded; decreasing the chances of a breakout.

  • REMOVES DEAD SKIN CELLS: The skin will look BRIGHTER, feel SOFT and by doing so all of the other products applied will be able to release their active ingredients into the skin as there is no “dead skin” blocking their entrance. This means better RESULTS from every product used.
  • CELLULAR REGENERATION: Removing the old cells will encourage new growth and healthy skin renewal process. Exfoliators are amongst the best natural anti-ageing products as they keep the skin regenerating in a more youthful way.
