With daylight savings well and truly done, it is fair to say the cooler weather is certainly upon us. So in order to help your skin weather the storm, here are our ABC’s of skincare to ensure your skin survival kit is up to date to maintain that enviable supple glow all year round. 

Vitamin B3 is our number one skincare must have for a reason. This go getter ticks all the boxes. Not only does it prevent moisture loss during the persistent indoor heating of the cooler months, it is highly anti-inflammatory, calming and fortifying the skin barrier.  

Another important ingredient to keep your glow going is Vitamin C. We all know it’s a powerful antioxidant but what does that actually mean? Antioxidants neutralise free radicals in the skin (which are known to cause cell damage and eventually age the skin). Vitamin C is also a key component in the synthesis of collagen, keeping your skin firm and youthful but also acting as a preventative of pigmentation all year round. 

Lastly, treat your skin with an overnight rejuvenation in the form of Vitamin A. As the weather cools everything slows down, so to ensure your skin is charged up and working at its optimal rate, Vitamin A is an essential skin booster. Vitamin A plays a key role is tissue development via the stimulation of your skin’s fibroblast cells, keeping your skin firm, healthy and resilient. As one can expect, not getting enough of this essential vitamin leads to weakened skin, causing problems such as dryness and irritation.
