Its that time of year and your skin may be needing an extra boost to maintain strong barrier functions and keep flaking, dryness and inflammation at bay. Keep your skin looking healthy, hydrated and sexy with our 7 easy to follow steps.

1. Keep hydrated – Its easy to neglect your h20 intake during winter, but its important to be proactive in maintaining your skins reparative functions. You can down load the Water Alert app which reminds you to stay hydrated and tracks your intake. Start each day by drinking 500mls of warm water (add apple cider vinegar and manuka honey for an extra boost).

Providing a rich flow of oxygen to your skin, promotes fast healing and healthy cell turnover. Ozone expert Dr Edward McCabe explains ‘In almost every case I’ve seen, everyone who does Oxygen Therapies looks younger and younger’.

5. Exercise – Shorter days and cooler mornings make it harder to stay motivated but its important to keep your body moving in winter if youre serious about sexy skin.
