We’ve arrived at hydration station.
Its that awkward time of year where the temperature just cant figure itself out. One day it’s cold, then it’s warm. The next day’s windy and then mild. This constant back and forth really takes a toll on your skin. Its easy to think that your skin is just going through a funny time, but really constantly turning on and off the central heating in your house can be very harsh on your skin and be the cause for your beauty-woes! Having the moisture sucked out your skin can leave you feeling very dry, sore and flakey which is no fun for anyone.
So when it comes to skin and hair care, there is a lot that you can do at this time to get supple and soft skin. Introducing our favourite skin, hair, hand and lip moisturising products…
