Winter brings with it the bane of dull skin, cracked heels, and other kinds of skin damage. But, by making a few things a staple part of your daily beauty regimen, you can rest assured of supple, dewy skin, even during winter.
A Gentle Cleanser
During winters, regular cleansers can strip the skin of its natural moisture, leaving it dry and brittle. To avoid this, switch to a gentle cleanser during the winter months – hydrating or soap-free cleansers are a good option. If you have naturally dry skin, you could also use after bath oils to help lock in some of skin’s natural moisture.
Be generous with the moisturiser if you have normal to dry skin. Moisturisers with Aloe Vera or Shea Butter are great at soothing skin irritation brought on by the unwelcome combination of dry, brittle skin and cold weather. Even those with oily skin should use water based moisturisers to help keep the skin supple.
Contrary to popular belief, sunscreen is not just a summertime skin care staple. It’s as necessary to slather some on during winter. Sun damage, when combined with skin dryness brought on by the weather, can cause further irritation. It’s therefore a good idea to continue using your regular sunscreen irrespective of the season.
Chapped, dry lips are probably the biggest bane of the cold months, and one that’s the easiest to forget about until it’s too late. To avoid painfully chapped, dry lips at a later stage, make sure you keep your lips sufficiently protected. Carry a lip balm at all times, reapplying whenever your lips feel dry.
Hydrating Night Cream
And last but not the least, it is at night, while you sleep, that your skin rebuilds and repairs itself, and it is therefore necessary, to help aid this process. Hydrating night creams do just that. They also help keep the skin moisturised and supple.
