Warmer weather’s almost behind us, and so is our sun-kissed skin. Winter’s when our skin loses its colour, and sometimes, its glow as well. The harsh dry weather makes our skin looks pale and desperately in need of a revival. So, how do we liven up pale skin and stop it from looking colourless, when the environment around us is doing everything it can to make it look as pasty as ever? Lucky for us, there are certain ways to up our skincare routine and get rid of dull skin. Read on to know more…
1. Exfoliate
 

1. Exfoliate

Before you begin putting on all sorts of make up to brighten up pale skin and give it that much-needed glow, you must exfoliate. When it comes to gentle exfoliation, the go-to addition to our skincare routine is the St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub. It’s 100% natural and its apricot extract drives away deep set dirt and dead skin. Oh, and don’t forget about your lips.

In the winter, you can’t use just any old face wash—you’ll need to pay a little more attention to your skin care routine. When it’s cold and dry outside, you’ll want to use a face wash with hydrating properties, so as to cleanse your skin without drying it. We trust the Lakmé Blush & Glow Crème Face Wash that has a potent formula, which comes with beads that burst on pale skin to lend it a gentle hint of colour. In addition to lending colour, these beads also scrub your skin gently without sucking away moisture.

3. Use face cream for hydration

A face cream is a must of any beauty and skincare regimen. And in the winter, it’s even more necessary, as it’ll provide your skin with all the moisture it needs. Rely on the Fair & Lovely Winter Fairness Cream that has advanced Multi Vitamins & Active Moisturisers that intensely moisturise dull, pale skin to keep dryness at bay. You could also opt for a tinted moisturizer, as this will help brighten up your skin, and also add a touch of colour to it.

4. Use a BB cream to hide any paleness

Instead of a tinted moisturizer, you could also use a BB cream to cover up any paleness. To keep your skin healthy, look for a BB cream like the Fair & Lovely BB Cream that has Multi Vitamins to can hide spots and blemishes and make pale skin appear brighter.

It is light, so it doesn’t clog your pores and give you any additional skin problems.

5. Don’t underestimate the use of highlighter

If you’re looking to liven up your skin and make it seem brighter, highlighter is the way to go. To get your skin to seem immune to the cold temperature outside, you could mix your highlighter with your BB cream, or even apply it to your cheeks, and under your eyebrows to look alive.

By adding a flush of colour to your lips, pale skin could look more alive than ever. However, be sure to pick the right lip colour—a shade that’s too light you end up washing you out, and a shade that’s too dark could make you look paler than you already are. Nevertheless, in winters, a pop of colour to your skin is always welcome.
