With change in season our skin can go though change that leaves us feeling dry and dull, congested and all round blah. Harsh winds, indoor heating, and warmer showers can leave our once plump and glowing skin we have finally mastered by the end of summer; dry, flaky and uncomfortable, as it adjusts to change in humidity and environments. The skin is a complex organ, and to put your best face forward we need to look at not only what we feed it from the inside, but the topical routines in which we apply daily to ensure we are feeling and looking our best.
