As much as we like wearing cosy sweaters, sipping hot chocolate and everything else that comes with winter, let’s not forget all the dryness it brings along. Flaky skin, dry patches, chapped lips are some common skin concerns during winter. This also makes it difficult to apply makeup on your skin. What’s worse, using the wrong makeup formula will only make those dry patches look more prominent.
Instead of skipping makeup altogether, you can add a few hydrating makeup products to your beauty arsenal. We’ve picked products with at least one hydrating ingredient to ensure your skin looks flawless and glowing throughout winter.
Using a primer during summer prevents your makeup from becoming a sweaty mess. However, the same primer can soften rough patches and give you a smooth base to wear makeup on. The Lakme Absolute Under Cover Gel Face Primer is infused with the goodness of vitamin E to nourish your skin and give it a healthy glow.
02. CC cream
A lot of women avoid using heavy foundations during winter because they are not easy to blend. Well, CC creams work well for daily use; they hydrate the skin and hide minor imperfections, giving you even-toned skin. The Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale CC Cream SPF 30 PA++ is formulated with aloe extracts that nourish skin with a hint of makeup.
On days when you absolutely have to wear foundation or if you are someone who cannot go a day without it, opt for a liquid, oil-infused formula. The Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation SPF 45 is perfect for winter. Enriched with argan oil, this foundation nourishes your skin and moisturises it for a dewy and radiant look.
If there’s one product that we can’t go without, it has to be lipstick no matter what time of the year. However, considering the needs of your lips during the harsh winter months, super matte lipsticks are a strict no-no. A creamy or semi-matte lipstick like the Lakme Absolute Matte Ultimate Lip Color with Argan Oil, will nourish your lips and offer an intense long-lasting colour.
The delicate skin around your eyes too experiences dryness during winter and some eyeliners can make it worse. To ensure your eyelids don’t get dry or red, pick an eyeliner with a hydrating ingredient. The Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale Gel Eye Liner is infused with aloe vera and jojoba oil to glide easily on the lids and create a smooth line effortlessly. Say goodbye to tugging and pulling with this eyeliner in your makeup kit.
