As seasons change, so do our skin’s needs. Winter is a perfect time to examine our routine and make a few changes in our skincare regimen–after all, we don’t wear the same clothes from season to season. (Well maybe you do if you’re like me and call Los Angeles home; we have only two seasons, season one: shorts and season two: shorts with a hoodie.) Even in temperate areas, there are still subtle changes to humidity, wind and temperature that affect our skin.
When we turn the heaters on indoors, we create a dry environment, and we need to combat this change with more hydrating products. For instance, if we are used to a lathering cleanser that is either foam- or gel-based, winter is a great time to switch to a cream-based cleanser that is less drying, like this cleansing balm.
