Rome is inarguably one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Known for its breathtaking architecture, amazing selection of eateries and not to mention is boasts some infamous landmarks such as the roman forum, pantheon and colosseum, there is a photo opportunity around every corner. With such stunning backdrops, it is no wonder thousands of tourists flock to the city to view and get photos at the sites, making it one of the instagram capitals of the world.

If you’ve noticed the quality of your skin deteriorate in the last month, rest assured you’re not alone. The summer/autumn transition, with its dramatic drop in temperatures, can really wreak havoc with your skin and send it completely off balance. The icy winter temperatures can really strip your skin of all of the moisture that is essential for maintaining a strong skin barrier and healthy, plump looking skin. Dehydrated skin can manifest in many different ways but can usually be identified by redness, congestion, and dullness of the skin. Dehydrated skin really is a world away from our bright, glowing summer complexions, but not to worry, winter skin just needs that extra bit of care. Face masks and serums can be a great way to give you skin that extra boost. Finish your routine by adding a serum infused mask to give your skin the extra love it needs to survive the harsh winter weather.
