When the temperature starts to dip, your skin can start to look and feel tight and parched. Chilly wind, freezing rain and indoor heating all dehydrate your epidermis – the outer layer of your skin. You can combat this by downing litres of water (which you should be doing anyway!), but it’s also important to introduce a heavier moisturizer to your regime, to keep skin smooth and supple. My favourite this year is Vichy Thermal Fix cream (50 mL/$30), formulated with 10 per cent thermal spa water. I love that it absorbs immediately without leaving my face feeling greasy, and that its skin-plumping effects last from morning to night. Use it under makeup during the day – with a foundation that has SPF – and after you wash your face at night. With two formulas available – one for dehydrated and another for very dehydrated skin – you’ll soak up the rewards of a healthy-looking complexion until the first weekend of spring.
