The arrival of winter means a few different things – a change in weather, a change in wardrobe and of course, a change in our skincare routine. Decreased temperatures and lower humidity levels take away moisture from the air and also out of our skin resulting in extra sensitive, dry and flaky skin. During this time, it is crucial to take extra care of our skin and adjust our beauty regimes accordingly to prevent skin conditions like acne and eczema from sneaking in. Here are simple ways to ace the skincare game this winter season.
* Hydration is key
It is crucial to intake sufficient water, it’s the most natural way of maintaining a natural glow on your skin. Get your skin diagnosed at a salon to know your skin hydration levels.
During the cooler months, it is integral to moisturize your skin regularly as the winter air dehydrates skin cells, making it parched from the inside. It is important to use a moisturizer on your skin for a soft and supple feel. For naturally oily skin, oil-free moisturizes that contain glycerine would be your best bet. For dry skin, a moisturizer containing mineral oils and herbal active ingredients would do the trick.
SPF is a must!! Sunscreen should be a part of one’s daily skincare regime throughout the year. Most of us limit the usage of sunscreens only to summers to protect the skin from tanning. However, it is important to know that the winter sun is harmful too as it emits ultraviolet radiations that cause photo-ageing, sunburn and pigmentation.
* Seldom exfoliation
Exfoliating the skin helps in getting rid of dead cells. During winters, however, it is best to exfoliate once a week for combination and oily skin to help boost skin regeneration and absorption of creams and moisturizers. For very dry skin, it is best to completely avoid exfoliation.
* Care for your feet
And most importantly, the thick skin covering the heel is more prone to get dry during the colder months. A heel care treatment is thus important to avoid wound and cuts. Regular use of heel creams, socks and the right kind of footwear will penetrate deep within the skin and hydrate it.
