No matter what your skin type, as the temperature outside falls the glow and moisture from your skin falls too. The freezing weather is harsh on your skin and makes it dry, dull, itchy and flaky which means it’s time to change your skin care routine along with your wardrobe.
To ensure you and your skin have a happy winter we bring you top winter skin care Dos and Don’ts that your skin will thank you for this winter.
Keep your skin hydrated
Although moisturising your skin is important throughout the year, it is particularly important during winters. Look for a deep nourishing moisturiser such as the Dove Deep Moisturisation Cream that makes skin soft, nourished and soft after each application.
Exfoliate your skin at least once a week and keep dry skin at bay. The dry and dead skin build up is more during winter causing skin to look dull. Regular exfoliation removes this layer from your skin revealing soft and beautiful skin beneath.
Just because the weather is cold does not mean the sun is not harsh. In fact the sun can cause more damage during the colder months. Opt for a soothing day cream that also protects your skin from UV rays. We swear by the Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Day Creme SPF 20, the goodness of aloe keeps skin soft and moisturised and it protects skin from the sun.
Use powder formulas
Powders absorb oil from the skin which your skin desperately needs during the winter. Move over powder formulas and go with liquids instead. The Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation With SPF 45 is the perfect companion for winter. The goodness of Argan oil nourishes your skin whereas the liquid texture of the foundation spreads easily and offers great coverage.
Use water that is too hot
As tempting as it may sound to relax and give yourself a hot shower bath, it is better to stick to lukewarm water. Hot water can be extremely harsh for your skin and hair, especially your face where the skin is the most sensitive.
