With the winter season upon us, WE ARE EGG is excited to introduce its winter survival essentials – a curated collection of locally-made skincare products designed to combat the harsh effects of cold winds and dry indoor air. With a focus on hydrating and protecting the skin barrier, this range promises to transform winter routines into self-care experiences.
As the winter chill sets in, delicate skin bears the brunt of the season’s harsh conditions. When the temperature drops, the blood vessels that supply nutrients to the skin temporarily constrict and reduce blood flow. Ultimately, this leaves the skin starved of oxygen and nutrients, leading to a lacklustre appearance. As if that wasn’t challenging enough, the cold air also takes a toll on our hydrolipidic film (also known as our skin barrier). Composed of sweat, water, sebum, and other lipids, cold temperatures have a knack for stripping this delicate film away, leaving skin defenceless against the elements.
But it’s not just the cold that’s to blame—indoor heating aggravates the issue further, subjecting the skin to sudden temperature changes. Whether we’re cosying up inside or braving the cold outdoors, dryness becomes a constant companion.
WE ARE EGG has curated a range of locally-made skincare products that are formulated to address the challenges the winter season brings. Each product in the collection is designed to nourish, hydrate, and protect the skin, ensuring a healthy complexion throughout the season. The range includes:
