Look After Your Skin – Winter Skin Tips

Winter Skin Tips from Karine Jackson Beauty Salon in Seven Dials, Covent Garden

winter hair care, covent garden hair salonThe chilly Winter months can wreak havoc on your skin, leaving it feeling dry and dehydrated.

Cooler winter temperatures and low humidity levels, combined with central heating, hot showers and the use of soap-based products can make moisture from the skin evaporate a lot faster. The lack of moisture and oil can weaken your skin’s natural protective barrier, leaving it susceptible to invading chemicals causing redness, irritation and sometimes sensitivity.  In short, your skin will look dull, feel tight, dry and even itchy.

That’s why it’s important to take steps to prepare your skin in late Autumn and early Winter for the colder weather.  A thicker moisturiser or even a night cream will restore lost moisture and relieve dry, thirsty skin. Hydrating serums and masks can lock in moisture and reduce tightness and can even help minimise the appearance of fine lines.  It’s a win-win situation! 

So to keep your skin healthy all Winter long,  make these minor adjustments or even pop in to Karine Jackson Hair & Beauty Salon for a facial and we’ll do it all for you!
