Brits feeling self conscious about their skin

From weather to stress, our skin can react to so many things, in so many ways that it can be hard to work out what’s the best solution.

Recent research shows that 51% of us feel uncomfortable in their skin and with the cold weather here to stay, it will affect 62%, who feel their skin gets worse in the winter months.

Across the UK, 24% suffer from dry skin, 17% sensitive skin, 18% are concerned about wrinkles, 13% have itchy skin, 12% dark circles, 11% age spots, 10% eczema, 7% flaky skin and 6% psoriasis, according to research by skincare brand CeraVe.
