Winter is a lovely respite from the hot sun. But it does come with its share of trouble. If you have flawless complexion, then, perhaps, you might escape from the evil clutches of winter. People with oily or dry skin aren’t that lucky.
But it doesn’t mean you go through winter with bad skin. Here are a few tips for glowing skin in winter. Don’t worry, the winter face care tips are not complicated. In fact, they are every day actions that will help your skin face the season with courage.
15 Essential Winter Face Care Tips To Maintain Gorgeously Glowing Face:
Wash your face 2-3 times a day and deep cleanse at night before going to bed. Use cold milk and cotton to fight dryness.
Scrubbing should be an integral part of your beauty routine. In winter, however, limit scrubbing to once or twice a week and use a mild product.
Your skin secretes more oil in winter to compensate for the dryness. Thus, winter care for oily skin means more diligent toning in winter.
You still need to moisturise your skin daily. Instead of a thick cold cream, you can use almond or extra virgin olive oil to moisturise without blocking pores.
5. Face Packs
Winter care for dry skin means applying homemade hydrating masks to lock in moisture. Use readily available ingredients like honey, buttermilk, avocado, yogurt, olive and jojoba oils, almond oil, bananas and aloe.
6. Stay hydrated inside
Dry skin loses a lot of moisture. Keep drinking water regularly to keep your body and skin hydrated.
The sun might seem weak, but you still need protection from it. Don’t skip the sunscreen when you step out.
8. Lukewarm water
Luxuriating under a hot shower might seemappealing, but in actuality you are drying your skin if the temperature is too high, and if you stay in for too long.
9. Choose the right moisturiser
Switch to an oil-based moisturiser and stick to one with natural ingredients.
10. Use protection
Besides the sunscreen, you must cover all exposed skin when out in the cold to protect your skin from the cold biting wind.
11. Overnight moisturise
Use a deep-conditioning night cream on your hands and feet when you go to bed. You can also wear gloves to keep the moisture locked in. Olay Natural White Nourishing Repair Night Cream is one of the better products available in India that helps to moisturise your hands, feet and face while also lightening your overall skin tone!
12. Change your cleanser
Swap your summer cleanser to one that contains moisturising agents. Apply your winter moisturiser immediately after the cleansing ritual is done.
13. Stay away from fried food
Avoid heavy cheesy, fried and sugary foods in winter as this puts more pressure on your body to divert energy into breaking down and digesting.
14. Eat healthy
Include a lot of fresh fruits and juices to your diet. Add vitamins A and E to your diet.
15. Avoid damp make ups as it leads to clogging up of pores.
Your makeup must contain dry and light ingredients.
