Ditch your gel cleanser for a cream cleanser
Stronger cleansers tend to strip your skin of its natural moisture, thereby making your skin further dry. It’s ideal to use a cream cleanser which is gentle on dry skin and has moisture built right in.
Say hello to exfoliants
Exfoliate regularly in winters, your skin will thank you! Exfoliating sloughs off the dead skin cells, thereby revealing a glowing complexion. Exfoliants like the Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant gently dissolves the top layer of dead skin cells, increases hydration and smoothens your skin.
Start using serum in winters
Serums have anti-ageing benefits, target skin concerns, are thinner in consistency and uber moisturising. For best results, always apply serum before moisturiser to allow ingredients to absorb into your skin. Get your hands on the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-in-Serum for nourished and radiant-looking skin.
Swap your everyday body lotion for a rich moisturiser
It’s not just your face that needs care in winter. Your entire body needs nourishment and hydration in the dry months. A lightweight body lotion might not work in winters. It’s time to switch to a rich moisturiser and remember to apply post a shower when your body is still damp. This will help lock in moisture. We love the Simple Kind To Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturiser.
Hydrating soaps/body washes for the win
It’s a known fact that some soaps can strip your skin of moisture, making it dull and drab. Therefore, it’s best to switch to fragrance-free, hydrating soaps or body washes instead of harsh ones. Try the Lux Body Wash in Soft Touch Moisturising that’ll hydrate your skin, leaving it soft and supple.
