In general, your skin is driest in winter, when temperatures and humidity levels plummet. Winter conditions also tend to make many existing skin conditions worse such as; central heating and air conditioning, central air and heating, wood-burning stoves, space heaters and fireplaces all reduce humidity and dry your skin. It is recommended that you use a day cream and night cream during winter. If your skin still feels dry then the use of a serum, such as the Lamelle Hydrating Serum, under your night cream is necessary to reach the desired outcome.
Home prescriptives such as AHAs, PHAs particularly Lamelle Barrier Repair Cream, NeoStrata Bionic and Biohydrating Cream are additional recommendations to hydrate the skin as well as any creams containing hyaluronic acid and shea Butter such Dermaheal Ultra moisturiser, Luminesce Brighter Day and Evening Glow

A perfect antidote to dry skin in the winter months is Skin Renewal’s signature facial: the Anti-Ageing Hydrating Facial which is a three-in-one treatment. It’s versatile, suits everyone and leaves skin tighter, younger fresher and more hydrated.
• It starts with microdermabrasion using fine crystals to polish away surface debris.
• Next, transdermal mesotherapy pushes the latest in anti-ageing technology Growth fFactors, Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid deep into the dermis. The Growth Factor and Peptides signal the cells that produce collagen to switch on and the hyaluronic acid gives instant hydration to the skin as it pulls in water.
• It’s very good at encouraging lymphatic drainage and reviving lifeless and neglected skin but the best results come down the line when the results of collagen production begin to manifest.
