As we enter into the harsh and unforgiving winter months, our skin can become flaky, dry and dehydrated more easily. Just as we transition our wardrobe from linens and cottons to wool and cashmeres, we must also transition our skincare. During these cold, dry months we need a few essentials that will keep the skin balanced, nourished and most importantly radiant!
