Despite the extremely cold weather and the notoriously dry air, winter is still a lovely season after all! But your skin needs a little extra love all winter long as it is particularly vulnerable in this cold season. The moisture in your skin evaporates quickly due to less humidity that may result in itching and flaking. Therefore, your skin requires more protection to guard against upcoming frigid conditions.
1. Add Oil in Your Daily Routine
Facial oil is a skin saver in winter because of its ultimate moisture-boosting formula! Not only does it replenish your skin’s natural moisture regimen, but also protects it from future moisture loss. Melvita Rose Hip Oil is made from the seeds of the Chilean wild rose, which is rich in essential fatty acids and nourishes and regenerates even the most delicate, lifeless skin. It helps reduce stretch marks and softens the appearance of blemishes while making the complexion more radiant.
2. Take a Homemade Oatmeal Bath
Cold winter months are coming up! Itchiness and inflammation are easily caused. But no worries! An oatmeal bath is an effective and inexpensive solution to soothe a variety of skin problems. Prepare 1 cup of unflavored instant oatmeal. Soak in the tub for 15 to 20 minutes and gently rub some oatmeal on the skin. Isn’t it simple to make? The healing power of oat is undoubtedly amazing as it instantly helps soothe irritation, leaving skin so soft afterwards. Soak yourself in an oatmeal bath once a week!
3. Gentle Exfoliation
Exfoliation during winter is still necessary. But remember to replace your strong exfoliator with some gentler ones to protect your delicate skin in winter. Clarins Gentle Refiner Exfoliating Cream with Microbeads eliminates dead cells with a combination of exfoliating and refining microbeads. Exfoliating beads lift impurities. Refining beads deeply cleanse and tighten pores and smooth skin texture. Use it once a week. Over-exfoliation will only make skin irritated and the dry, flaky patches return and become worse. So enough is as good as a feast!
4. Limit Your Time of Bathing
Indulging yourself in a hot bath is absolutely wonderful, especially when it is cold outside. But hot water will damage your delicate skin and remove the oils that keep skin hydrated. Other than reducing the amount of time you spend in the bath and not using water that is extremely hot, it is a wise idea to apply body moisturizer every time after a bath. L’Occitane Ultra Rich Body Cream has ultimate moisturising power with a high (25%) concentration of Shea Butter. A pampering, whipped cream enriched with linseed, mallow, sweet almond and honey extracts, apricot oil and vitamin E. Enchants with a light fragrance of jasmine and ylang-ylang essences, caressing body and mood wherever your day takes you.
