YOUR GUIDE TO THE FRESHEST WINTER SKIN
By Nicole Manning – C0-founder of FENN
A few smart additions to your skincare lineup are all you need to support your skin against the winter months. The main focus is to protect from the elements – cooler temp, cold winds plus hot heated rooms can zap moisture from your skin and leave lips and sensitive areas such as around your nose, chapped. Smart layering of nourishing serums, oils and richer moisturisers will help guard against this extra dryness. Autumn and winter can be a good time to amp up your retinol or Vitamin A products to target any ageing and pigment concerns… and keep up that sunscreen! Whilst UV levels are generally lower in winter, Australian UV is quite strong all year round so it pays to keep up the protection factor – especially if you have increased your retinol as it can contribute to greater sensitivity to the sun.
