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.

And not just on the face. “This expands to your whole body,” she says. “The neck, chest and back are also prone to breakouts.”
