Hello everyone! I want to share a few head-to-toe winter skincare tips. Cold temperatures and low humidity levels result in dry air that draws moisture away from the skin. Harsh winter winds and dry indoor heat can exacerbate the problem. Skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis may also flare up during the colder months. Here are some head-to-toe tips: Body and face Lukewarm water  is considered to be the right temperature for your skin. Moderately warm water will give the best skin care results. It effectively removes dirt from your skin without destroying the oil balance of your skin. If your serum/moisturiser doesn't contain active ingredients such as Vitamin C or Retinol, you can apply it to damp skin.

Hello everyone! Today I am starting a new blog series titled  Know your ingredients ,   in which I will highlight a specific  active ingredient .  I chose to focus on  niacinamide  as my first ingredient. Why? Because if I had to pick one active ingredient that I can safely recommend to anyone, it would be niacinamide.  Also known as  vitamin B3  or  nicotinamide , this ingredient can be used by almost everyone. Niacinamide is a versatile skincare ingredient that is used for a wide range of skin conditions. Niacinamide also helps the skin produce more ceramides, helping maintain a  healthy skin barrier . Its anti-inflammatory properties make it ideal for treating  acne,   rosacea  and   other inflammatory conditions. Because of this, it is recommended for those with sensitive skin. Besides, niacinamide helps  reduce the appearance of pores  by  regulating sebum.  It can help combat  hyperpigmentation  and even help smooth  lines and wrinkles .

As we age, lips start losing volume and lines and wrinkles accumulate over time. If you're a smoker or someone with the habit of puckering your lips, wrinkles can form sooner than you think. The skin around the eyes and on the lips is very similar. In fact, you can find many eye-lip combo creams on the market. Both areas are made up of the  thinnest skin on the face . Because the skin is so thin, these areas also lack sebaceous glands. Since the skin on these areas doesn't produce any oil, both areas are more prone to dryness, which means that they’re also prone to showing signs of ageing faster than other parts of the face. Additionally
