Easy Tips on How to Keep Skin Glowing in Winter
There's beauty in every season. We love winter for its cosy knits, steaming hot chocolates and full-bodied reds. However, we don't love the way the cold air and drop in humidity leaves our skin feeling tight, dehydrated and flaky.
Here are some easy tips and tricks for keeping your skin healthy and glowing in winter.
How to keep skin glowing in winter
1. Exfoliate to replenish your skin
Your skin cells become dehydrated and die out more in winter thanks to the cold air outside and the warm air indoors. These dead cells block your skin from receiving the benefits of your skin care.
Winter skin is more sensitive to exfoliants. Gently exfoliate your face twice a week to replenish your skin and maximise the benefits of your moisturiser.
Don't forget your body! Avoid the build up of dry, scaly skin by using gentle body exfoliation.
2. Amp up Hydration with Skincare & Winter Makeup Duos
Lock in hydration and help your skin's defences by adding oils or choosing richer formulas for your skincare and makeup.
All skin types become dry and stressed in winter. So you want your skincare and makeup to:
- Strengthen the skin barrier
- Prevent moisture loss
- Lock in hydration
Mix and match the following skincare and makeup to create glowing, healthy skin this winter, no matter what your skin type is.
