Oh here we are, winter. Our skin is dry, red irritated and generally not happy. Why does this seem to happen every winter and what can we do to banish these winter skin blues?
Basically when the weather turns and the heaters come on our skin reacts with irritation, redness and flaky dry patches. In addition our immune system is on full alert trying to deal with the colds and flu raging around us. So our skin suffers from lack of attention from the skin's immune cells.
Most of you have heard me prattle on about the importance of properly hydrated skin, but the routine you have been using in the warmer months is not always appropriate for fall and winter. Now is the time to make sure your barrier is strong enough to withstand all that winter will throw at your skin.
This is the perfect time to change the filter for your heater and come in for your seasonal facial. Hey we winterize our cars, our clothes and our homes, time to put your face on top of the list!
