Winter beauty supplement must-haves you need in your life

Friday 13th Nov 2020 |

With us now in the midst of autumn and the weather getting ever gloomier, no doubt our skin is feeling a lot less hydrated and even, neglected.

Due to the bitterly cold weather, lack of moisture in the air, harsh winds and many of us cranking up the central heating, it all naturally plays havoc on our temperamental skin. This is where a beauty supplement can help…

LloydsPharmacy pharmacist, Pareena Patel, shares“During the colder months, taking care of your skin should be a vital part of your day to day routine. Due to the limited the amount of sun we experience during the colder months, our skin can become deficient in vitamin D, which is one of the best vitamins for your skin[i]. It plays an integral role in skin protection and rejuvenation. In its active form as calcitriol, vitamin D contributes to skin cell growth, repair, and metabolism[ii]”.

Pareena adds: “It is important to stay hydrated during the winter, as the colder weather can cause our skin to feel more dry and dehydrated[iii]. Also, try to drink lots of water throughout the day as this can aid hydration inside out. Another good way to stay hydrated is to have a bath with oils in. The oils will help to bring moisture back to the body and balance the body’s natural oils”.
