The Best Winter Skincare, Hydration and Moisturization is the Key to keep soft and supple skin in winter

“Winter is coming.” Dry skin, chapped lips, Eczema and cracked skin everything are so scary.

“Our oil-producing sebaceous glands get sluggish in colder weather, can leave normally healthy skin feeling dehydrated. It often becomes sensitive, and that can lead to more serious skin conditions.”

So, what to do? “During the winter months, it is important to change your skin routine,”

1. Layer-up your skincare

Apply Hyaluronic acid serum with Facial oil with a good moisturising cream on the top to clean skin to seal the moisture.

2. Avoid hot showers and baths

Hot water evaporates fast, stripping your skin of its essential moisture and damaging its natural protective barrier. Moisturise immediately after showering or bathing.

3. Avoid Harsh Cleaser add Hydrating Cleanser

Opt for cream or balm products instead. You can double cleanse if your skin is really parched — use water with the first cleanse but make the second one a dry cleanse.

4. Use a mild exfoliator

It’s important to use a mild exfoliator to remove dead and dry cells from the skin’s surface and enable serums and creams to be absorbed more deeply into the skin — this is your most effective tool to combat dullness and blackheads.

5. Take extra care with your eye area and lips

The skin here is thinner and has little-to-no oil glands to protect itself. Use serums and oils around the eyes that soothe and protect the skin. On the lips, use occlusive balms to provide a barrier against the elements (to seal in moisture rather than provide )

6. Include serums high in vitamin C and HA

This encourages the production of collagen and cell turnover.

Hyaluronic acid is an amazing way to help skin hold on to hydration without having to rely on heavy creams. Hyaluronic acid molecules can hold 1,000 times their own weight in water, locking moisture into the skin.

7. Choose the correct moisturiser for your skin type

Moisturisers act as a barrier, holding moisture in and hydrating the skin’s outer layers. If you have oily skin, water-based, non-comedogenic moisturisers are the best choice. Dry skin needs a heavier, oil-based moisturiser to rehydrate.Always use ceramide and probiotic infused moisturiser as ceramides and probiotics  are a critical element of the natural moisture barrier, and we produce fewer and fewer as we get older. As the cold sets in, it’s always a good idea to include ceramides in your skincare routine.

8. Use face oil overnight

Look for ingredients such as squalene, rosehip, soybean and jojoba, which all possess highly hydrating properties

9. Apply a moisturizing sheet mask three times a week

Do this in the evenings after removing your makeup. This will instantly give your skin a lovely glow, too. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes.

10. Wear hydrating sunscreen

The most important thing you can do for your skin is to wear sunscreen every single day (minimum SPF30), even when it’s winter. Sun exposure can lead to pigmentation issues, wrinkles, loss of collagen and skin cancer. Sunscreen will also even out your skin tone, allow scars and hyperpigmentation the chance to heal and lighten.
