As the seasons change, so should your skincare routine – after all, to protect yourself from the cooler weather you change what you put on your body, so why wouldn’t the same rule apply to your skin?
Now is the time that your skin needs more nourishment and protection to save it from feeling tight and uncomfortable all winter. May is the month to start preparing the skin to hydrate and rebalance in order to protect it and make sure it gets the nourishment it requires to look and feel healthy all winter long.
Ella Bache Hamilton at Portside and its therapists can conduct a complimentary skin diagnosis to ensure that your skin is prepared for the cooler weather, and that you have the right homecare solution.
Owner Laura Hooper says there are five winter must-haves if you want your skin to survive the winter unscathed:
- A cleanser for the face and cleanser/oil for the body that suits your skin
- An ultra-nourishing body lotion or face moisturiser that suits your skin
- An exfoliant for the face and another for the body to remove dead skin cells to ensure all your other products can penetrate deeper for best results
- Hand cream for youthful looking hands throughout winter
- Eye cream to protect the delicate eye area ‘
Laura’s favourite products to soothe winter skin are:
Floral Oil – a delicate textured cleansing oil for the face and body that leaves a protective veil for dry skin. Skin is left velvety smooth and gently scented with a blend of floral oils including rose, ylang ylang, patchouli and jasmine.
Water Source Crème – rich and nourishing protective cream that drenches the body with intense moisture. Perfect for daily use, it restores moisture levels to even the driest skin, leaving the body feeling soft, supple and very well hydrated. Also protects skin from external elements that may cause the skin to dehydrate.
Loofah Earth Body Polisher – enriched with natural loofah fibres, this unique formula gently lifts away dead skin cells, refining and softening skin texture. Helps eliminate impurities to improve circulation and tone of the skin
Energising Crème Masque – a rejuvenating, rich and creamy mask. It alleviates dehydration and restores essential moisture to dry skin with the added benefit of improving fine lines and elasticity. Ideal for fragile or mature skin. May be used around the eye area, lips, neck, décolleté and backs of hands
Special Eye Crème- a special, rich and nourishing eye cream. Comforts even the driest skin, alleviates dehydration and minimises the appearance of fine lines and crow’s feet
