Skincare essentials for the winter


I don’t know about you but with Vaccinated Travel Lanes opening up, I’m excited about planning for my next holiday! So much so I’ve booked my next Christmas holiday to Europe. While I’m looking forward to the chance to travel again, soak in the Christmas markets and catch up with friends and relatives, I’m not so much looking forward to the cold weather.

Don’t get me wrong, I love a change in climate from hot, humid Singapore but there’s no denying that cold winters can be dry and harsh for the skin. That’s not to say that is going to stop me from having a good time. As the old adage goes, “The preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today” and there are a few tips I’m going to stick with to prepare myself for this winter holiday.

Before the trip

One of the most popular treatments loved by many is Profhilo, an antiaging treatment that promises to halt the signs of aging. The key ingredient used in Profhilo is Hyaluronic Acid, a molecule that just loves water. Unlike dermal fillers, the use of hyaluronic acid in Profhilo serves to stimulate the production of collagen for younger looking skin. As a bonus side effect, it provides intense hydration for your skin, so a session of this will help skin stay hydrated and supple throughout the winter holiday.

Another popular treatment you might like to try to prep your skin before a trip is Water Drop Lift. As its name suggests, Water Drop Lift serves to enhance the moisture content and elasticity of the skin, all without pain and downtime. Enjoy your holiday with skin that is rejuvenated, moisturized and glowing!

During the trip

Keep at least one of these essential skincare products close at hand during your holiday. I personally love Rose Gold Regenerating Serum for its compactness and versatility. This 30ml bottle packs a punch when it comes keeping parched and dehydrated skin protected and moisturized, and can be used on the skin, lips and even the undereye area.

Looking for a quick pick-me-up in the middle of a long flight or at the end of a long day? Replenish Hydrating Facial Mist soothes and calms skin with aloe vera while restoring skin barrier with ceramides and other moisturizing ingredients. Perfect for under or over makeup – just a quick spritz and you’re ready to go!
