We’ve just been given a bit of a bashing by the tail end of Hurricane Gonzalo, with extreme wind, lots of rain and a considerable drop in temperature interspersed with sunny spells (which have been very welcome).
This type of severe weather can certainly play havoc with your skin and indeed your skincare routine so we have decided to put a few ideas together on how you can protect your skin during similar events. With Autumn here, and Winter fast approaching, we hope these ideas will help with the worse the good old British Weather can throw at us.
Protection from the Elements
There are a few products that you can add to your routine without too much interruption that can really help when the weather and environment are against us. These products can simply been incorporated with your usual products to add that Protection from the Elements we sometimes need.
UltraCalming Barrier Repair is a unique moisturiser due to it’s silicone base. It is primarily designed as a twice daily moisturiser for sensitive skin types but is ideal as an addition when the weather turns cold and windy, especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors. In terms of adding it to your regime simply follow your routine as normal in the morning but before applying your usual moisturiser apply the Barrier Repair first. You will notice the difference immediately and even more so at the end of the day. It will offer that protection that your face will really need when the weather turns nasty.
The Climate Control Lip Treatment was derived from Dermalogica Climate Control which was designed to be used all over your face to help with harsh climatic conditions but was discontinued a while ago now. The Climate Control Lip Treatment is applied directly to your lips and comes in a very handy and convenient stick applicator which you can keep on you at all times. Apply it throughout the day as your lips require it to prevent chapping and peeling which can be problematic especially in heavy wind conditions.
Multivitamin Power Firm is Dermalogica’s Best Selling Eye Cream by far. It is a wonderful product from the AGE Smart Range of products, which are designed to help combat signs of ageing and dry skin. Never the less the Multivitamin Power Firm is suitable for most people and adds a rich and protective layer around your eyes after application. This will help protect that most delicate of skin even in the of worse weather.
We all need a little more help when the weather turns and especially when it turns very bad – very quickly. The additions we have suggested can really make a difference if you find that your skin is suffering, and you won’t need to make wholesale changes to your normal everyday skincare routine to reap the benefits.
