Getting ready for a winter holiday? There is no denying that we Singaporeans love to travel, especially to countries with colder weather to escape the heat. However, the drastic change of weather can take a toll on our skin.
In Singapore, most of us experience oily skin and enlarged pores, but when we are in countries with four seasons, cold air tightens the pores and our oil glands become less active; giving us clear, smooth skin. Sounds like a dream? The truth is it is more like a nightmare, even people with “oily” skin will experience skin flaking, chapped lips and in the worst case cold rashes. Fine lines and wrinkles will be accentuated, and if we have makeup on, it will start cracking. Fortunately, we have the essential beauty know-how to survive though a chilly getaway.
