How are y’all? Hope y’all are doing well!!
Winter is almost here and it’s time to make a change in your Beauty Routine. As we know, during winter the temperature falls and the air gets drier and your skin suffers the most. Your skin needs major attention during this season of the year. So it’s time to upgrade your beauty care routine to avoid dry, irritated skin when the temperature drops. Here’s what I recommend for an effective winter beauty regime;
- Cleansing routine: Switch to lighter cleansers that are mild, creamier and foaming rather than alcohol- based which will strip away your skin’s natural oils, thus making it dry. Intensive cleansing needs to be avoided. Avoid products with fragrance which can be irritating for dry skin.
- Exfoliate: It may sound counter-intuitive, but gently scrubbing will actually help your creams and lotions work better. Use a mild exfoliate to scrub away dry skin.
- Moisturize: You need to revamp your regular moisturizer with a heavier/thicker one that which contains ingredients like glycerin, sorbitol, which are humectants that pull moisture from air into skin. Though while you step out, you still need an SPF to protect from UV rays.
- Body Butters: Do not forget to add body butters to your skincare routine to prevent the skin on your body from drying out.
- Lip Care: Use some petroleum jelly and an old brush (soft bristles) to gently rub the jelly on your lips in order to exfoliate them while some lip balm to further protect your lips (twice-thrice a day).
- Hair Care: Your hair too gets dry and brittle during winters and thus you need to hit the nail on the head to prevent your hair from drying out. Find shampoos and conditioners that help heal your hair and protect them while moisturizing them. Try not to wash your hair everyday during winters.
- Eye Care: An eye cream is a great addition to your beauty routine during winters. The skin around the eyes is very thin and harsh weather can be extra tough on the eye area. Plus, eye creams offer benefits such as reducing fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles.
When you change your skin care routine, you may have a breakout initially because your skin isn’t used to it. However, if you stick with it for a couple of weeks your skin may adapt to it.
