Bid farewell to winter skin worries because we’ve got a foolproof list on how to get glowing skin, something that will easily earn their place in your winter skincare routine.

Skip the sizzling showers

While a hot shower feels warm and cosy, your skin doesn’t feel the same way. The high temperature of a hot shower strips the skin of its natural oils and opens the pores, making it lose up to 25% of the skin’s moisture. Instead, opt for lukewarm water and limit your time in the shower. Once you’re out, make sure to seal your skin with a nourishing body lotion like the Vaseline Intensive Care Deep Restore Lotion.

Sun care

We always associate the summer with sunny skies but let’s not forget that the sun shines in the winter too, which requires even more caution. When your skin is at its most vulnerable in the winter, make sure to care for it by giving your skin optimum moisturization and sunscreen protection.


We’ve all heard it before but we’re reiterating the slogan of drinking lots of liquids and that’s only because it’s true. Hydrating your body with water or fresh fruits and juices from inside out is the best treatment you can give your epidermis, which is conducive to the health of your skin.


Pollution, damage and other elements can lead to the buildup of dead skin cells on the skin. The best way to get rid of them is by exfoliating your skin thoroughly, which washes away the old and promotes the renewal of new, healthy skin cells.

Fabric care

When cold climes come around, we bring our woollens and silks out of storage for a winter ready look. However, the fibers in such fabrics can irritate the skin, causing damage. But we’re not warning to put those woolies away just yet. Instead apply a rich moisturizer to your body which will stand between your skin and the fabric.

Watch what you eat

There’s no doubt in our mind that the winter brings a strong craving for sugar laden desserts and sweetmeats. However sugar is pro-inflammatory which causes the skin to lose its suppleness as well as its natural ability to heal any damage. That’s why it’s important to moderate your intake of sugar this season because a little really does go a long way.


There are always places to go and people to meet and while your skin adjusts to the changes in the different temperatures, during the winter, it is a little more difficult. This variance in temperatures can lead to unstable skin that is dry and damaged. The skincare tip for this winter trouble is to slather on a moisturizing lotion like Vaseline Intensive Care Deep Restore Lotion wherever you head to, which will protect your skin regardless of what the temperature falls to.

Keep up your immunity

Modern life brings along its fair share of tiny and not-so-tiny stressors, leading us to become unsettled and anxious, which in turn lowers our immunity and affects the skin to the extent that it becomes permeable, which allowing bacteria to infiltrate it easily. Combat this by taking time out to exercise. Breaking a sweat with exercise will help your blood circulation, the production of collagen and the opening of your pores, which in turn, will keep your skin happy and glowing all winter long.
