Start by clearing your bathroom cabinet of harsh soaps and foaming cleansers and replace them with a gentle cream formula that won’t strip your complexion. We like Grown Alchemist Olive Leaf & Plantago Extract Facial Cream Cleanser (1), $39.95. Then, slather on a moisture booster that con- tains essential fatty acids, as “your skin doesn’t produce as much oil in winter”, advises Melanie Grant, clinic director of the Double Bay Clinic in Sydney. She adds, “An oil will trap moisture, creating a stronger barrier.”
