With the first day of Autumn only days away, it’s time to consider adjusting your skincare routine from summer to winter.

Harsh winter winds, cold, dry air and heating can wreak havoc on skin.  Winter-proof your skin with these effective beauty tips:


Swap light cleansers for a cream or oil-based formula to keep skin hydrated.

Over exfoliation can strip skin of moisture. Reduce amount of exfoliation in cooler months to one or two times per week.

It’s essential to swap your lightweight summer moisturiser with a nourishing formula that locks in moisture and combats against dryness. Products that contain hyaluronic acid retains moisture without feeling heavy.

Serums reap amazing benefits – target fine lines, provide a more skin texture, tighten pores and help combat against dryness and dullness.

Don’t skip sunscreen in winter. Moisturisers with SPF will ensure protection everyday.
