Winter Skincare 101: Our Top Tips
Now that the winter months have arrived, many of us are packing away our summer shorts for next year, pulling together our Christmas shopping lists and, of course, changing up our skincare routines.
For some, the same skincare routine can work all year round. But for others, our skin needs a little extra TLC in the colder months. The harsh weather combined with the stark contrast of heating indoors can cause our skin to become less hydrated and drier in general. But not to freight, we’ve got our top tips for winter skincare right here.
IMAGE Peel At Home
Want to take the salon home? Look no further than the IMAGE Peel with the IMAGE Skincare Ageless Total Resurfacing Masque and the IMAGE Skincare Vital C Hydrating Enzyme Masque. The Ageless Total Resurfacing Masque is an exfoliating mix of Glycolic and Salicylic Acids that will resurface the skin. It very gently rids the skin of dead cells hence diminishing brown spots. Your at home peel treatment! While the Vital C Hydrating Enzyme Masque is an ultra hydrating, Vitamin C / Enzyme masque. It mildly exfoliates dead skin with enzymes and adds essential antioxidants and minerals to improve general skin health. Perfect for all skin types and rosacea affected skin.
If your skin is feeling like it needs extra care, look no further than this gorgeous Gentle Cleanser from SkinCeuticals.

When upping your skincare game, it’s just as important to not ignore the skin on our bodies. This is where the Environ Body A, C & E Oil comes into play.

This oil helps to reduce the look of fine line, while Vitamin A, C & E works on photo-damaged skin by helping to retain moisture and even out skin tone.
And of course, don’t forget your SPF during the winter days. It’s an essential step every day of the year, from the rare but gorgeous days when the sun shines in Ireland to Christmas Day itself. This sheer daily moisturiser delivers SPF 50 broad-spectrum protection against the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays.
