As the temperature drops and the winds turn chilly, our skin tends to take a hit from this weather change. This is the time when your skin requires special care. You need to tweak your skincare routine to make it more appropriate for the season. So, to help you sail through this transition like a pro, we have listed out five beauty tips that you gotta follow to take care of your skin.
- 1. Don’t step out without sunscreen
- 2. Switch your moisturisers
- 3. Swap lightweight products with cream-based ones
- 4. Don’t over-exfoliate your skin
- 5. Take care of your lips
1. Don’t step out without sunscreen
We’ve already said it a hundred times, and we’re going to say it again - no matter what the weather or season, you should never step outside without applying sunscreen. Don’t let the cooler temperature fool you; sun rays are equally damaging in the winter as they are in the summer. So, get your hands on a non-greasy sunscreen like the Lakme Sun Expert Spf 50 PA+++ Ultra Matte Gel Sunscreen to keep your skin shielded. So, keep the sunscreen handy as it blocks up to 97% of harmful sun rays and gives a matte finish to your skin.
2. Switch your moisturisers
This season requires you to up your moisturisation game to keep your skin hydrated at all times. So, instead of trying and using five different creams and moisturisers, we suggest sticking to one which has moisturising ingredients like hyaluronic acid or ceramides. Our go-to is the Lakmé Peach Milk Soft Creme Moisturizer. With the goodness of peach milk extracts, vitamin E and sunflower oil, this lightweight and non-sticky moisturiser absorbs quickly into the skin and locks moisture in for up to 24 hours. A must-have if you ask us!
3. Swap lightweight products with cream-based ones
Change in season means stepping up your skincare game and taking care of your skin the best you can. This also means changing your skincare routine and swapping your usual skincare products with the ones that suit the season. So, swap your usual cleanser with a cream-based one, add face oils to your routine. You can also turn to heavier body lotions to keep your skin thoroughly hydrated.
4. Don’t over-exfoliate your skin
Hear us out — exfoliation is extremely important, especially in the winter season, but you need to make sure to not over-exfoliate as it will make your skin dry and flakey. Use a gentle scrub like the St. Ives Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub & Mask. This paraben-free scrub is extremely gentle on your skin but makes sure to deeply cleanse and exfoliate your skin to reveal its natural radiance, all thanks to the honey and oatmeal in its formula.
5. Take care of your lips
While you’re at it, let’s not forget the pout. We all know how delicate and thin the skin around our lips is, that’s why you gotta take care of your lips the most as the season changes. Make sure you scrub your lips regularly to remove the dead skin cells and keep the cutesy Vaseline Lip Therapy Tin Cocoa Butter handy at all times. Infused with cocoa butter, this lip balm helps lock in moisture and gives your lips a glossy shine.
