As the temperature falls, the skin becomes dry, flaky, you will feel tightness, tenderness, itchiness, and the complexion becomes dull or sallow. In some extreme cases, it can become raw, cracked, and painful.
With winter right next door, a few tips will help in keeping your skin healthy and nourished. You can adopt some of these tips to prevent dry and cracked skin.
Just like in summer we use facial mists to cool and hydrate our face throughout the day, for winters it is preferable to use an oil mist. It contains oil which adds an extra boost of moisture. Many types of oils in mists vary greatly so you can find the one that works best for your skin type and concern.
Sunscreen is not just for summers
It is a common misconception we don’t need SPF in winters. Although UVB rays are weaker during winter, the UVA rays are strong throughout the year. They can cause fine lines, UV damage, aging, and can even exacerbate dryness.
Exfoliation is important
It is vitally important as it can facilitate the absorption and penetration of other skincare products. This includes serums, creams, and any other hydrating products you might use in your skincare routine.
Ultimately it is important to use winter-approved products such as a creamy cleanser, hydrating toner, oil mists, and buttery cream.
Some of our recommendations include these products.
An oil cleanser that is effective yet gentle when your skin is being affected by all the winter elements. it can remove all the oil-based debris, makeup products, and clean out your pores to give you a clear complexion.
An ideal face mist for dry and combination skin types. It contains avocado oil that moisturizes skin.
A SPF50+ cream to protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays.
It can gently exfoliate any thin and loose skin causing no irritation or discomfort. It is not abrasive like many others and perfect to use during winters on dry skin.
A skin ambrosia in a jar. It does not feel too heavy but seals in moisture perfectly. This cream is a great addition to your winter skincare.
Besides all these, plug in a humidifier to deal with the lack of humidity in the air and indoor heating. Humidifiers can help in keeping your skin moist along with all the skincare products.
