Tips For Your Skin This Winter

September 23, 2019

As the temperature starts to drop, you will start to notice a difference in your skin. Winter weather is not fun for skin. Cold weather and low humidity levels result in dry air, which steals moisture away from the skin. Therefore, this results in dry skin that can lead to cracking and can cause irritation.

Winter skincare is about being proactive and maintaining, so you don’t have to chase a problem and hope you can find a way to fix it. Keeping your skin moisturised helps, but you need to do more than that to keep your skin looking youthful and smooth. To reduce any skin problems or irritations this winter, check out these tips!





   1. Wash In Lukewarm Water

Hot showers and baths always feel good in the winter when it’s cold outside, but try and use lukewarm water when washing your face or hands. This helps to avoid stripping your skins natural oils and making it dry.





   2. Choose Your Moisturiser Wisely

If you think your skin is in need of some moisture, then add a moisturiser to your skincare routine. The moisturiser gets to the root of your skin’s hydration needs. However, make sure you choose your moisturiser carefully and pick one that has nourishing, plant-based ingredients with an oil base.





   3. Hydrate From The Inside Out

We tend to drink less water in winter as we turn to hot drinks like hot chocolate and coffee, but don’t forget your skin still needs to be kept hydrated. Try making yourself warm water and lemon, or warm water with squash.





   4. Exfoliate

Throughout winter our skin can become quite dry, therefore we need to help scrub off the dead cells. Grab a good exfoliating wash or use a brush/loofah to clear your skin and then follow with a moisturiser and you will feel a massive difference in your skin.





   5. Change Your Cleanser

Cleansers can become extremely drying for your skin. If you are using a cleanser containing glycolic or salicylic acid, then switch over to a more hydrating version that contains more moisturising/hydrating ingredients. Just listen to your skin and wash it with product that makes sense given how it’s feeling.
