Most of us are very good at protecting our skin in summer, but it still needs extra care when the temperature drops. “Summer brings humidity, but the atmosphere is much drier in winter, which, combined with the dehydrating effects of central heating, can be extra drying,” explains Abigail. “To boost your skin’s own protection levels, I recommend products containing omega oils and Vitamin C. Omega oils are brilliant for boosting moisture levels, plumping and supporting the skin’s protective barrier. Vitamin C, a mega antioxidant, also helps strengthen the skin’s barrier function as well as improving the appearance of pigmentation.”
