Written by Yasmine

With the season changing to the colder, many of us can feel our skin change too. After a warm summer, the cold climate changes our skin, and that includes what we need.

Dry skin is uncomfortable, and especially harsh during the winter time. The dryness become visible as redness, and irritation especially around the eyes and cheecks. And the lack of moisture creates the feeling of tightness and itching. Except for the weather, frequent washing, hot baths or showers, and harsh beauty routines can contribute to the irritation of the skin. It’s important to follow a routine that are suitable for dry skin, and sensitive products that protects natural skin lipids. There is help, you just need to find products that actually helps. And here are winter saviors for dry and sensitive skin.
