Caring for your skin during winters is imperative. Beautiful skin is like a priceless possession to a woman. Following some key steps during your skincare regime, this winter can definitely help maintain a beautiful and healthy complexion.
Let your skin win through the winters!!
Acne: Acne breakouts are common during winter. The skin’s oil glands tend to overproduce oil to protect the skin from losing its moisture due to the cold and dry weather conditions, thus, causing pimples. They should be treated immediately because they can go from Bad to Worse – Real Quick!
What you should do – Get anti-acne treatments at the salon or dermatologist Use tea-tree face oil (The Body Shop Tea-Tree oil https://amzn.to/3lTreXr ) Apply a moisturizer that is Gel-based (Neutrogena WaterGel https://amzn.to/2He97g0 )
Dull Skin: If skin care is not carried out on a daily basis, it can cause you to lose your glow and the skin to look dull and flaky, overtime. Dull skin can make one look pale and have whitish skin patches and can age earlier than usual.
What you should do – Follow a daily skincare regime. (No matter how tough your day was at work) Cleanse, tone & moisturize with products meant for your skin type. (For Oily & Acne-prone skin https://amzn.to/2SZr30l ) Exfoliate (use a scrub) 2-3 times a week. (Gentle coffee face scrub https://amzn.to/2T3KKE4 ) Drink plenty of water and consume foods high on anti-oxidants.
Tanned Skin: Discolored skin can make one feel extremely conscious of their appearance. Skin gets prone to skin burns due to recurrent and extreme tanning. Taking care of your skin to prevent unwanted tanning is essential.
What you should do – Go in for a De-Tan Facial/ Clean-up Apply a sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30 (whether indoors or outdoors) https://amzn.to/2Hc3tL2 Glycolic acid peels also work well, it refines and renews skin cells https://amzn.to/2SYNSkX
Moisturizing your Skin: Skin that is regularly moisturized post cleansing it off makeup, dust and pollution tends to be healthier. Using a moisturizer according to your skin type can not only moisturize your face but also layer up as a barrier from makeup and dust settling directly into open skin pores that can lead to skin damage and skin concerns like acne.
What you should do – Use face masks with nourishing serums (this face mask combo can do a great job for you https://amzn.to/2SWYyQU ) Use face oils / essential oils https://amzn.to/3dJd9Jv Do not forget your Lips – apply a good lip balm regularly (soft tinted lip balm look pretty in winters https://amzn.to/3dywrRu ) Indulge in facials once a month.
Makeup Products: Before you apply makeup, always remember to apply a moisturizer and primer prior to makeup. This will create a protective layer on the skin and can hide minute fine lines and wrinkles.
What you should do – Keep the makeup sheer, do not layer up too much it can tend to look cakey especially in the winters. Use alcohol-free products. Gel / water-based products are always a good choice Primer https://amzn.to/355NarG Moisturizer https://amzn.to/2H3TcB2 Make sure the products you use suite your skin type (Oily, Acne-prone, Dry, Mature) Exfoliate regularly to avoid comedone build-up.
