As if looking after your skin isn’t hard enough, with winter beckoning, we easily forget how much our delicate faces are exposed to the harsh cold weather.

For many, dry skin is an all year round struggle made especially hard upon winter’s arrival. But instead of burying our heads in the sand, we must look with a fresh perspective. Just like how you don’t wear the same clothing in January and July, you don’t want to use the same products!

With the right mindset and commitment to a daily skincare routine, dry skin and chapped lips can soon become a thing of the past.
