Winter can be brutal on the skin, health and the spirits at large, but that doesn’t mean there is no way to combat this brutality. While you enjoy yourself during the coming days, make sure you follow a healthy beauty regime to keep your skin in fine fettle. Here is a list of 5 winter skincare tips that will have you out and about all day long!
This is the process by which you remove the oldest dead skin cells from your face and body. Exfoliation as a part of your winter skincare is very important. It not only helps in getting rid of the dead skin of the outermost surface of the skin, but also allows the moisturiser to penetrate deeper into the skin, keeping is soft, hydrated and nourished. Exfoliation can either be chemical or mechanical, both being all natural. Don’t forget to exfoliate your body as well.
The next in your arsenal of winter skincare is moisturisation of the skin. Use natural ingredients such as shea or cocoa butter, vitamin E and coconut oil extracts for keeping your skin soft, supple and hydrated. Do it at least twice a day, after you bathe and before going to bed. If your skin falls under the dry category, you should moisturise your skin for even four times a day.
#3 Nighttime Rituals:
The best one of the winter skincare tips is to always cleanse, tone and moisturise your face before sleeping as it will allow your skin to heal and relax at night. Use a specifically targeted product as an oil-based night cream or coconut oil for your face. Your skin must be clean before you use a cream or a moisturiser on your face. So, always wash it with a face wash before moisturising. We recommend you to use a face wash that contains glycerin or moisturiser.
Drink at least 8 glasses of water everyday and electrolyte frequently to keep your skin clean, blemish free and detoxified – one of the most important winter skincare tips there is. You should also drink fruit juice in order to consume more liquid and hence detoxify the skin.
#5 Sunscreen Up:
We know what you’re thinking – suncreen as a part of winter skincare? But yes, even in the winter, the skin needs to be shielded from the sun, so if you’re going to be out in the sun for over 30 mins, it is advisable that you put on some sunscreen. You might know it already, but you should always use sunscreens within SPF 15 to 30 so as to protect your skin.
