I recently moved to Japan and it's currently winter for along time. I must prepared for most things: freezing temperatures, and overheated rooms. What I did not expect was painfully dry skin—the biggest pitfall of winter. Turns out, your skin loses about a quarter of its ability to hold moisture in cold, dry weather. I discovered quickly that transitioning from the humidity of summer to the dryness of winter means switching up your skin care routine. So I'm change my skincare products and try new products, iUNIK from Korea.
