As fun as the cool breezy nights may feel, winter is no fun for your skin. The cold weather chills and the low humidity levels rob your skin of its precious moisture leaving you with dry skin and a pale complexion. But here is what you can do to negate the effects of winter on your skin and maintain the glow!
With just these five steps you can say bye-bye to dry skin and hello to a winter glow. Thank us later!
- Step 1 - Winter skin still needs exfoliation
- Step 2 - Wash your face with a hydrating facewash
- Step 3 - Thorough moisturising
- Step 4 - Opt for a hydrating foundation
- Step 5 - Overnight Masks
Step 1 - Winter skin still needs exfoliation
One of the most common assumptions people make is exfoliating your skin during winter will add to the dryness. But ladies, moisture can’t get in through all those piled up dead cells either! Exfoliate once in three weeks with a gentle exfoliator like Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant which effectively sloughs away all the dead cells and impurities.
Step 2 - Wash your face with a hydrating facewash
Your regular facewash is no match for the winter weather. Formulated with peach antioxidants that add a glow and tons of moisture to your skin, the LAKMÉ Peach Milk Soft Crème is our ideal choice. We recommend using lukewarm water with it to avoid stripping away oils from your skin.
Step 3 - Thorough moisturising
Right after you wash your face, moisturise thoroughly so your skin absorbs and seals in the moisture. You can definitely take your winter moisturising game one step further with Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Crème which intensely moisturises and adds a coat of gloss to your skin and face. A must try if you have excessively dry skin.
Step 4 - Opt for a hydrating foundation
Can a foundation really dry your skin? Yes! If you really want that dewy winter glow you need to choose your make up carefully. Nourished with the goodness of argan oil and SPF 45, you can rely on Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation to add back glow to your face.
Step 5 - Overnight Masks
Who needs a highlighter when you can get a radiant skin by just using overnight masks? Overnight masks add an intense boost of hydration to your skin while you are sleeping so that you wake up with bright, hydrated skin when you wake up. If you want to wake up with supple skin and glow, use Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Overnight Mask once a week.
