How to start prepping your skin for winter
Step up your moisturising game
In order to prevent your skin from suffering during the cooler months, your summer moisturising routine will most likely need a few tweaks. A heavier moisturiser will be necessary in order to help retain vital hydration and support your skin’s barrier function.
Contains Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) and Hyaluronic Acid (capable of holding up to 1,000 times its own weight in water), as well as Provitamin B5 to plump up the skin for a more dewy, hydrated complexion. Another winter lifesaver.

Naturally occurring alpha hydroxyl gently buffs away aging skin cells, polishes your skin clean and uncloges pores, while cold pressed virgin coconut, dilo, macadamia and sikeci oils nourish, moisturise and protect your skin leaving it glowingly healthy!
Don’t forget your sunscreen
Just because you’re not hitting the beach and basking in the warm sun this winter, doesn’t mean you should forget about sun protection altogether. While it may not feel sweltering hot, the winter sun can still do plenty of damage. UVA rays are present all year round and are the main contributing factor for accelerated ageing.
Eating for Healthy Skin this Winter
