Q: Should I be changing my skin products from winter to summer?
This depends on your skin type and the environment you live in. Generally, skin is naturally more dry in winter, especially in the Highveld where moisture levels drop, leaving skin a dry as a desert. In winter you can opt for a skincare regime that protects and hydrates the skin. Cold and dry air will zap your skin’s natural moisture levels, so look for a hydrating cleanser and a richer moisturiser that will protect your lipid barrier from being breached. In the summer it’s best to ease off heavier creams and go for a light moisturiser that won’t clog pores (and don’t forget the SPF!).
