Top skincare tips for winter

Biting winds and below-freezing temperatures can make your skin feel like sandpaper over the winter months. Adapting your skincare routine to the changing seasons is vital to investing in the long-term health of your skin. Here are 10 top skincare tips for winter that will help you keep your skin feeling soft and moisturised during February’s storms:

  1. Invest in a heavier moisturiser or layer up nourishing products, such as fast-absorbing serum and facial oils, underneath your regular face lotion to prevent your skin from becoming dehydrated.
  2. Up your water intake to guarantee that your skin has everything it needs to remain plump and soft to the touch. Remember drinks like fruit juice, tea and coffee count towards your daily H20 intake but keep them to a minimum as sugars and caffeine can negatively impact the skin too.
  3. Take short showers in cooler water to help your skin retain its existing moisture.
  4. Switch to gentle body washes over harsh shower gels to keep your skin feeling soft and supple.
  5. Take some ‘me time’ to de-stress during the week with a relaxing, moisturising face mask that will remove dirt and grime from the surface of your skin while replenishing lost moisture.
  6. Don’t forget to moisturise your hands too! One quick trick is to apply hand lotion, pop on some rubber gloves and do the dishes to create the perfect conditions for product absorption.
  7. Add a drop of facial oil to your foundation to lend your skin a dewy glow.
  8. Always take your moisturiser down your neck and over your decolletage to encourage even softness.
  9. Your scalp may also feel dry and itchy when temperatures drop. Treat your hair to a conditioning mask and protect the tips with hydrating oil.
  10. Avoid rubbing, brushing or licking your lips if they feel flaky and dry. Apply a balm instead that will protect them from wintry winds.
