The colder season usually means a drop in humidity, causing the skin to lose water to the atmosphere by evaporation, a process known as Trans-Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL). The fact that most of us will spend more time indoors with central heating will exacerbate TEWL, as will magnifying effects of wind if a lot of time is spent outdoors.
Without sufficient water in the lower layers, the skin will feel dehydrated and possibly flaky, all the processes that occur in the lower layers such as enzyme activity will slow and the skin therefore may appear dull, congested and feel sensitive. The skin’s natural barrier will also be reduced, exacerbating barrier impairment conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and rosacea.
But fear not, check out our top 5 winter skincare saviours from Nimue, available to buy in the salon today. If you would like to learn more about our new skincare range and the facials that we offer please click here
