Skincare To Enjoy a

The season of winter is  upon us. While we prepare for cold weather, the season also brings with it a host of woes and worries. The deadly combination of wind, cold and sun can wreak havoc on our skins. So with the transitioning seasons, it’s also time to transition our skincare to better adapt to the cold. Here are some handy tips to help you make the best of this season and enjoy a hassle-free season.


During winter, the polluted air, wind, and cold your skin is exposed to can clog your pores and promote acne breakouts. Use a pH-balanced and alcohol-free cleanser to wash your face at least twice a day. If you’re using makeup, make sure to double cleanse to get rid of all the makeup.

Exfoliate Regularly

The key to bright, radiant skin is exfoliation. It helps remove dead skin cells and avoid skin congestion to give your skin a silky-smooth finish. Invest in good chemical exfoliators with AHAs and BHAs that you can use regularly. If you’re going to DIY it, use gentle exfoliants like oatmeal and limit the frequency to once or twice a week.


Regardless of how the weather is, you should not completely skip moisturizer. Go for a lightweight moisturizer that has a non-greasy, oil-free formula and ingredients like vitamin C and antioxidants. Or you can also invest in a good vitamin C serum to keep fine lines and skin aging at bay.


Winter or Summer, sunscreen must always be a part of your skincare regime. But while it’s still acceptable to skip it once in a while in the winters, you simply cannot afford no protect your skin from harmful UV rays. The solar protector helps reduce sunspots and delays skin aging. Make sure to pick a sunblock with SPF 30 or higher and reapply s, especially if you’re outdoors.

Skin Hydration

Winter demands water and moisture, its the cold and windy season. Invest in a good, reusable hydrating face mask to soothe and nourish your skin and rid it of stress, dirt, and blemishes. You can also keep a refreshing mist handy to spritz on your face throughout the day.

Minimal Makeup

When it comes to makeup in winter, less is more. If you don’t wish to be completely au «naturale», you can try a no-makeup look or simply use a BB or CC cream or even a light foundation. Skip the eye shadows and mascaras, or use the smallest bit of Vaseline to give your lashes some definition. Give your cheeks a bright flush of color and finish the look with glossy lips!

Drink Plenty of Water

Your winter skincare regime’s vital ingredient is water and more water. Drink a minimum of 1-2 liters every day. Not only does it keep your skin supple and radiant, but it also helps flush out toxins from the body. If plain water gets too boring, hot teas and fresh juices are some great alternatives.

Don’t Forget Your Eyes and Lips

The skin under your eyes is thin and delicate and also prone to dark circles and burns. Use a good moisturizing under-eye gel with ingredients like cucumber and hyaluronic acid to keep the wrinkles at bay. Make sure you apply your sunscreen under your eyes too and wear sunglasses when stepping out. For your lips, use a moisturizing lip balm with SPF.

Take Care of Your Feet

Your feet need just as much care as your face but are often ignored. Exfoliate your feet regularly and apply moisturizer and sunscreen on your feet, too, especially if you wear flip-flops and open-toed sandals.


Remember, your skin needs extra care and protection when the weather is dry and cold. While skincare worries shouldn’t stop you from getting the best of this season, make sure you balance the fun with sufficient precautions for your skin and overall health.
