The winter season can be quite tough on your skin. The cold weather and dry winds can make your skin look dry, flaky, and dull. But don’t despair as there are some simple steps you can take to get your skin looking and feeling its best this winter.
A good skincare routine is essential for keeping your skin healthy and hydrated during the colder months. So we are sharing our top tips for a winter skincare routine that will leave your skin looking glowing and radiant.
Problems Faced By Skin During Winter
During the winter, the air is cold and dry so the sebum produced by our skin is insufficient to keep itself moisturised. This leads to dry skin, flaking and redness. Even the cell turnover rate slows due to the lack of enough moisture in the skin. The dead skin cells thus pile up on the skin and make it look duller than usual.
While dehydration is a key cause of dullness, sometimes we tend to over-moisturise our skin which can also make our skin look dull. So it is important to follow a proper winter skincare routine with organic face products that nourish and brighten our skin.
Tips To Protect Your Skin During Winter
Switch To Gentle Cleansers:
A lot of cleansers strip moisture from the skin and leave it dehydrated and stretchy. So look for nourishing, gentle facewashes that help retain moisture within the skin.
The key to soft, glowing skin is good moisturising routine. Always apply moisturiser on damp skin to lock moisture within the skin and keep it hydrated throughout the day. Face oils are a great choice during winter as the fatty acids help protect the skin from harsh weather conditions while also adding a dewy glow to the skin.
Add Skin-Brightening Ingredients:
Certain organic face products have ingredients like Vitamin C and liquorice root which can help reduce hyperpigmentation and even out skin tone by inhibiting the melanin production process. So look for such brightening products to fight winter dullness.
Don’t Skip Sun Protection:
Even though the weather is damp and cold during winter, ultraviolet radiation from the skin can still damage your skin and lead to sun tan. So use sunscreen every day, even in winter to minimise sun damage.
To avoid dead skin from building up on your skin, use a gentle exfoliant 2-3 times a week to remove dead skin and help products penetrate better into the skin.
Cover Up Your Skin:
You can use protective clothing as a barrier against cold, harsh winds during winter. Layer up in warm clothes before your step out of the house to avoid exposure to cold weather.
Avoid Hot Showers:
Hot water can strip away essential lipids from the skin which increases irritation and dryness. So reduce your shower time and use lukewarm water only during winter.
A humidifier can help reduce skin dehydration by increasing moisture levels in the air. So use a humidifier in your home or office to increase humidity in the room.
Winter Skin Care Routine To Follow
Start your skincare routine with a gentle, hydrating cleanser that removes dirt and impurities while maintaining healthy hydration levels in your skin.
After cleansing, spritz a face toner to replenish moisture levels and gently pat it into the skin.
Apply 2-3 drops of a skin-brightening serum and gently pat it into the skin to hydrate and brighten the skin.
Apply a few drops of facial oil or moisturiser while the skin is slightly damp to lock moisture into the skin and protect it from dry winds.
Use a mineral sunscreen with at least SPF 30 rating as the last step in your AM routine to shield your skin from harmful UV rays.
Use a mild, non-abrasive face scrub 2-3 times a week to gently slough away dead skin cells and reveal softer, brighter skin.
Apply a brightening and nourishing face mask on cleansed skin 2-3 times a week to even out skin tone and boost glow.
