Everything you Need to Know about Winter Skincare
Nov 26, 2020

Winters are here, there is a nip in the air. Most of us love this weather as it makes us want to be in our favourite blanket, with a cup of hot chocolate and our favourite book.

However, winters can be a big issue for most of us. Winters bring dryness with them and can take away moisture from your skin.

Dry skin is sensitive and is prone to damage from the sun and all other external irritants. Dry skin can easily lead to sunburns, rashes and even acne!

So today, we are here to tell you everything that there is- to protect your skin this winter.

• Cut Down Shower Time and Temperature

Long, steamy showers may be tempting, but your skin will be much better with a 5- to 10-minute lukewarm shower (or bath).Also avoid using excessively hot water when washing your hands. Washing your hands in cooler water is less irritating to skin and if you’re using a restroom air hand-dryer, only continue till your hands are damp than perfectly dry.

• Choose for Gentle, Fragrance-Free Cleansers

Soaps can aggravate itchy, dry skin. Look for a wash that is fragrance-free, moisturizing cleanser or gel. You can also stay away from winter skin problems by using less soap overall, so limit soap use to necessary areas, such as your hands, armpits, genitals, and feet.

• Alter Your Facial Skin-Care Regimen for the Winter

Use cream-based cleansers, and stay away from toners and astringents. For your night routine, use a richer moisturizer on your face.And do not forget your lips. Applying a moisturizing balm (such as petroleum jelly or another ointment) can help heal dry, cracked lips, and keep them from getting chapped.

• Control Thermostat to Avoid Dryness

Don’t go all ballistic and just crank up the heat! But Heat can make the air in your house even drier. Set it at a cool yet comfortable setting to maintain the moisture in the skin

• Eat Right and Stay Hydrated

During winters adding foods or supplements that contain omega-3 or omega-6 fatty acids, such as fish oil and flax seed oil help for the most part, however, it is also important to help the skin moisturize from the outside.”

• Apply Sunscreen — Yes Even During Winter Days

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, on bright winter days, snow reflects the sun’s rays up to 80 percent and it can increase your risk of exposure. So simply putting it you’re out, playing in the snow, or just walking for an errand run, it’s just as important to be applying sunscreen. Even on cloudy days, the sun’s harmful UV rays can permeate clouds and still cause damage.Apply a moisturizing, broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher to all exposed areas of your body two times a day.

• Wear Comfortable,Clothing

A lot of cold-weather fabrics can aggravate dry winter skin. Stay away from rough woollen and synthetic winter clothing. Protect your hands from cold winter air with gloves or mittens, keeping in mind to choose a pair that will not irritate your skin. If you prefer wool gloves, you can choose to put on cotton or silk glove liners first.
