We had so many lovely messages after our Botox and Profhilo talk with Anna Baker last year that I had to get her back on the podcast. Today we discuss winter skincare and how best to look after your skin during the colder months. We talk about everything from rosacea and different types of skin problems that can arise in winter, to Maskne and how to manage acne breakouts with continual mask-wearing.
As always, Anna was a complete delight to chat to, and she rounded off the episode with recommendations of her favourite new products perfect for your winter skincare regime.
