Winters may be our favourite season but it isn’t for our skin. The sudden change in climate can create a havoc for our skin. But with the right skin care routine and special winter skin care, the scenario can be changed. If you want to make Winters your skin’s favourite season too, please keep on reading.
1. Use a Sunscreen
One of the most common Winter skin care mistakes is not using a sunscreen. As long as there is sunlight, we need a sunscreen to protect our skin from UV rays.
Apply moisturiser after a bath when your skin is still damp. This helps the skin to absorb the moisturiser better and lock in the moisture.
Regular exfoliation is a must as they not only remove dead cells but also improve blood circulation. Getting rid of dead cells helps moisturizers seep in faster. You can either dry brush or use body scrubs.
4. Hydrate Yourself
We may not feel thirsty much during Winters, but our water intake hydrates our skin and improves the texture.
5. Lip Balms
Slather on a thick coat of lip balms during nights and scrub it with a toothbrush by morning. Regular application of lip balms avoid chapped lips and dryness.
6. Oil Massage
Oil massages are a must during Winters as they warm up the body and result in better blood flow. Also regular application of oil on arms, legs and face avoid and heal dry patches quickly.
Steaming opens the skin pores and brings out the dirt from your skin in the form of sweat. This is another important step, as during Winters our pores tend to get clogged more and closed pores can result in acne and other skin problems.
8. Avoid Hot Showers
Yes. You heard that right. Hot showers may feel soothing but they aren’t good for the skin. So avoid hot showers and try medium warm showers instead.
