Winter is here and with it comes foggy winter mornings, clear blue skies, crimson foliage and a cold nip in the air. It is the season of festivals and parties, which also makes it the season where we try to look our absolute best.
When it comes to getting ready for a party, we search the web frantically to look for quick fixes or beauty hacks. But what we tend to forget is that quick fixes and hacks do not magically transform your skin, rather they are usually harmful to your skin.
A daily skin care routine and a structured plan can help you glow not only in winters but in the long run as well. Let us take a look at some skincare products you must use this winter:
You must moisturize your skin during winter. The cold weather rips off the essential oils from your skin leaving it dry, dull and lifeless. Using a good moisturizer twice or even thrice a day, enriched with Vitamin E, is a must. Spend some time selecting a moisturizer that matches your skin type because every skin type has its own requirements. Do not neglect a moisturizer as persistently itchy, dry skin could lead to serious skin diseases like Atopic dermatitis. Make sure you consult a dermatologist if the problem persists.
We often neglect using a face wash during winter as we tend to sweat less in the cold weather. In this cold winter season dust, smog and other air pollution are at its peak and these tiny dust particles get trapped in our skin pores blocking them causing acne breakouts. Additionally, greasy and oily food often catered at parties and restaurants lead to hormonal fluctuations resulting in excessive sebum secretion making our skin oily from outside. A face wash helps in removing the dirt, oil, grime and even excess sebum from our skin making it clean.Choose an appropriate face wash according to your skin type.
Although the warm sun rays feel good during the cold weather, it is very harmful for our skin. A sunscreen with an SPF of at least over 30 is a good idea even during the winter.
4. Vitamin C serum
In this party season, it is always recommended to invest in a good quality Vitamin C enriched serum to enhance your skin-glow. Vitamin C is photo protective and enriching, making the skin bright and giving it a glow.
5. Body lotion and hand creams
Skin not only means your face but also the rest of your body. Generally, our arms, ankles, legs, back tend to dry more than our face in this season. It is highly recommended to moisturize your whole body after a bath with a thick shea butter enriched body lotion to avoid dry, cracked and rough textured skin.
6. Lip balm
Winter causes dry chapped lips! Lips are the most sensitive part of our face and tend to get affected by the moisture-less weather more than the rest of our body. Apply a lip balm at least 6 to 7 times a day to have supple and soft lips.
7. Foot cream
Avoid cracked and dry feet by applying foot cream on a regular basis. Use a Vitamin E enriched foot cream as it provides the maximum protection against cracked feet
8. CC cream
CC stands for Complexion Care This cream combines the goodness of your daily skin cream with just the right touch of make-up to give you that perfect look in just a few minutes. The cream is available in different skin tones and works perfectly well for all skin tones. Its skin-care benefits include sun protection (SPF 20-30), moisturizing, brightening and freshness while its make-up benefits are an even skin tone and basic coverage to give you a naturally flawless look. So, this winter you can try a CC cream replacing your heavy foundation.
9. Makeup remover
Even if you don’t use a foundation or heavy makeup. You may still use eye make up, lipstick, or a serum to glam up for a party. If these products are not removed by a good quality make up remover, they tend to block your pores resulting in acne. So, even though you've heard this multiple times, please never forget to remove your make up before going to sleep!
