It’s official… winter weather is here so it’s time to prepare your skin to get ready for the coming frigid temperatures and cold winds.

Wind can also cause the outer layer to flake and shed, and this loss of moisture in the outer layer of the skin causes it to look dull and grey. It’s more important than ever to focus on gently exfoliating away the surface of the skin, adding lots of moisture, and of course, never forgetting the sunscreen!”
