The temperatures have certainly dropped this week bringing colder weather which can play havoc with our skin but fear not, Sarah from our ESPA Spa has put together a few simple but effective tips to help it stay healthy, nourished and protected………..
:Moisturising is key as cold conditions can strip the skin of its natural moisture leaving it feeling dry and looking dehydrated. Consider upgrading your moisturiser to a more concentrated product and use morning and night. The Optimal Skin Pro Moisturiser from our ESPA range is the perfect choice!
:Avoid extreme temperature changes, going from hot to cold or cold to hot and be cautious around constant air conditioning or heating systems.
:Ensure your skin is completely dry before going outdoors as the cold will encourage sensitivity.
:Reduce the use of acids and retinols and introduce Vitamin C and gentler products like facial oils or serums. The Optimal Skin Pro Serum is my favourite!
:Exfoliate a little less but increase mask application, focusing on cream masks.
:Don’t forget your lips, these can become dry and chapped in cold conditions so be sure to exfoliate them gently weekly and moisturise them daily. I use the Pink Pomelo Lip Balm from ESPA and it works wonders!
:Work on the skin from the inside out by drinking plenty of water, aim for at least 2 litres a day. This will boost hydration and retain moisture in the skin.
I hope these tips help until we can pamper you again! Stay warm and safe and we hope to see you all soon.
