Holiday season is almost upon us, which means it’s time to start planning a suitable skincare routine. A sudden change in weather can wreak havoc on the skin, and then there’s the actual journey to think about. Below, three experts share their top tips for supporting your skin throughout.

Opt for a pH balancing toner
As you travel from between different climates the pH of the skin can change, which is why A-list facialist and aesthetician Joanna Czech always recommends using a pH-balancing toner. “Our skin is naturally acidic,” she says. “Typically it has a pH balance of between five and six.” When our skin’s pH raises towards alkaline levels, it triggers a chain reaction that results in trans-epidermal water loss, dehydration, and eventually inflammation. A pH balancing toner restores the skin to its ideal state.
