REHYDRATE - REPAIR - REVITALIZE
REHYDRATE REPAIR AND REVITALISE
Blustery winds, chilly blasts, cold dry air and central heating all take their toll on our skins in winter. Our skin becomes dry, parched and dehydrated from the face to the tip of your toes.
So with Spring only a few weeks away it’s time to do some serious restore and repair to our skin before we start to step out in the sunshine and shed our winter woollies.
Even if you regularly use a good moisturiser now is the time to look closely at your skin and step up your skincare regime by adding products for a richer routine – you will be glad you did!
To make things a little easier we’ve put together a range of products that we hope will help.
