Weather playing havoc with your skin?
The changeable and unpredictable Irish weather wreaks havoc on our sensitive Celtic skin. Between the snow, rain and wind combined with indoor heating, moisture is drawn from the skin leaving it dull and dry as well as itchy and irritated. When skin becomes dry, it’s softness and elasticity is impaired and the skin’s natural barrier is compromised.
French skincare brand, Eau Thermale Avène have some hero products to help soothe and protect the skin during this time.
