Winter, with its blend of freezing winds and parched indoor heating, can bring unique challenges to our skin's health, amplifying moisture loss and leaving our skin craving hydration!
As we enter the warmth of spring, it's vital to maintain a healthy skin barrier, the body's principal shield against environmental stresses. A balanced skin microbiome, a healthy acid mantle, and optimal hydration levels are crucial to preventing conditions such as dryness, acne, dermatitis, and rosacea.
Over-exfoliation, lengthy hot showers, inadequate hydration in your skincare regime or using products unsuitable for your skin type and condition can cause these imbalances.
Moreover, factors such as an incorrect skincare routine, age, genetics, illness, weather conditions, stress, and medications can also instigate an impaired skin barrier.
Consultation with a skin therapist is essential to understand your skin type and develop a personalised skincare plan. And as we transition into the warmer seasons, we present our top three Aspect favourites that may help to fortify your skin's barrier function and heighten hydration.
