Next up is moisture, treatment and protection
The one item that we all need, all year round regardless of skin type is an effective moisturiser. Period.
The next important item is treatment serum that helps to optimise our skin and last but by no means least is SPF.
Winter is definitely a time when heavier moisturisers and face oils are our go-to products, often the richer the better depending on your skin’s needs as you battle to avoid the dryness and dehydration caused by the weather, central heating and not enough water. That was then, now is the perfect time to lighten up.
After cleansing and toning you’ve probably been using a serum of some sort because let’s face it, we all want to optimise the condition of our skin, don’t we? The thing is that with sooooo many options available it can be hard to know what to use, so I’m going to stick my neck out and say that if in doubt choose a vitamin c serum. I use a vitamin c serum most days, but especially in warmer months because…it’s a great all-rounder: it enhances radiance with long-term use, it helps to prevent hyperpigmentation, it fights free radicals that come from ultraviolet light, It helps with fine lines and boosts collagen production. Lastly, it works really well under sunscreen and works for all skin types.
