Your skin faces the weather change every day and experiences the adverse effect of it. The weather & environmental changes include harsh wind, pollution, environmental toxins, and humidity - these are the factors directly or indirectly affect your skin. Some changes occur above and inside the surface of your skin.


During winter - your skin lacks moisture due to the Stratum Corneum or skin barrier. During a dry atmosphere, the skin is at the risk of becoming dehydrated - and results in DRY & Dull skin.

When one is outside during winter - skin faces lots of environmental issues that affect your skin adversely for which requires a winter-specific skincare routine. No worries, here we have mentioned a few of those that can help your skin stay healthy & beautiful during winter so that you can enjoy the Christmas Party or New Year's Eve to the fullest.





Stay Hydrated :-


In every season staying hydrated is essentially important for glowing, healthy skin. During winters, we rarely feel thirsty and skip drinking water that affects the skin adversely. Health experts commonly recommend eight 8-ounce glasses, which equals about 2 liters of water, or half a gallon a day. Well-hydrated skin is less likely to suffer from fine lines or scars. By drinking an ample amount of water daily, you can slowly tighten your skin and maintain a healthy glow.





Moisturize When Wash :-


Once you wash your face, never leave it dry - apply moisturizer just after washing your face as washing drains out the natural oil from your skin and leaves it dry, tight and itchy.





Add More Hydration :-


Yes! Add an extra layer of hydration during winter by addingessential oil or natural oil to your skincare routine. Applying serums or natural oils ere your cream is an excellent way to lock in additional moisture and key ingredients, and your skin will take all that it can get in the winter. If you have dry skin, it is good to add extra moisture to your skin. Additionally, serums and oils are rich in vitamins, antioxidants, botanicals, and other skin-nourishing and -hydrating ingredients that will boost your skin during winter.


Protect from Mild Sun Rays with SPF :-


Most of the time the sun rays is mild during winters, due to which we started skipping the sunscreen cream that allows the hidden sun rays to damage the skin. You may not have to protect your skin with SPF every time during winter, but use your low SPF sunscreen when you think the sun is hiding behind the clouds.





Exfoliate Your Skin :-


Your winter skincare routine is incomplete without exfoliation. Since the skin barrier works slowly in winter, dead skin cells are more likely to develop and make your skin dry & dull. So, it is good to add scrubs, cleansers, and toners to your winter skincare routine. You can also book a home salon appointment for skin rejuvenation with a facial, and hair spa in the comfort of your home.
