Cleanse & moisturise as part of your gym routine

Going to the gym helps produce those happy endorphins, which stops you from getting the blues. Good for you, but not for your skin.

Cleanse and moisturise

After a workout, make sure you cleanse your skin and apply a good moisturiser. Perspiration produces salts on the skin and this can have a drying effect. By cleansing the salts off and applying a good moisturiser you reduce the risk of dry skin.

Skin tip of the week - Vitamin C

Vitamin C is wonderful all year round but in right now it is especially important. Internally it will help boost your immune system, reducing symptoms of the common cold. Externally applied in cream or serum form it will reduce dry skin and redness.

Vitamin C helps collagen production, which is essential for anyone with thread veins or broken capillaries. If your skin is prone to getting red, don’t go through spring without Vitamin C.

Skin tip of the week - look after your neck

We may remember to focus on our face but what about our necks? Friction from turtlenecks and wool fibres can rub the neck and cause it to be dry and irritated.

Reduce the use of Vitamin A products on this area during the cold weather, replacing with Vitamin C or antioxidant creams. Try a hydrating mask a few times a week to reduce any irritation or dehydration.

A Gel Mask will easily hydrate your skin and can be used all over the face and neck.

Skin tip of the week

In winter our skin is constantly put through temperature changes. Going from warm houses to the cold outdoors can very quickly dehydrate our skin.

Keep hydrated

Stay hydrated by drinking more water. Taking a sip every 15 minutes drip feeds your skin and will keep you far more hydrated than the drought or flood method most people use! Try to avoid coffee and caffeinated drinks as these expel more water and dry out the skin. Adding a little lemon to your water increases the hydration and is great for clarifying the skin.
