Reinventing your Skincare Guide this Winter

TREND / 2019-11-20

Winter skincare is usually overlooked as a transitional season, but that’s exactly why you need to pay much more attention to it. The skin can take a long time adjusting to the sudden weather changes and requires additional support. While the summer season can bring out the worst skin conditions like Acne, winter can give you very similar reactions if not handled right! This usually happens because the extra oil that our skin is used to producing and still hasn’t slowed down, post the summer months. The cooler weather and dry air can inhibit the shedding of the dead skin cells. So, during this time of transition, repair your skin by correcting any damage summer might have had on your skin, and prepare your precious skin for the winter season. Lighter creams and masks may have been sufficient for your skin previously, but the hydration your skin needs becomes even more important when the weather cools down. Luckily, we have all the tools you need to get that luscious skin glowing again. Here’s how you can maintain a healthy glow throughout the colder months.

#Cleansing is always the answer

EVE LOM Cleanser

When it comes to cleansers, professionals usually recommend something that is “gentle, non-foaming and wash-off” and to avoid extremely hot water while using it, as it will only take away the essential lipids and moisture from your skin. You should ideally invest in products that are highly moisturizing and will not only help preserve the skin’s natural oils but will also hydrate the skin. So make sure you are investing in a good cleanser, and are taking care of your gorgeous skin! We wouldn’t want dull looking, flaky skin now, would we? If you’re on the hunt for a new cleanser, you could opt for the EVE LOM Gel Balm Cleanser which will definitely keep your skin moisturized without drying it out.

#Did you forget to Exfoliate?

SISLEY Botanical Gentle Facial Buffing Cream 50ml

Summer months can truly drain out the skin tone sometimes. Fake tanning and uneven skin tones are usually a cause for concern for many people. To make sure you are giving that last dead layer of skin a good scrub, it is essential to exfoliate once a week to ensure soft, supple skin. Professionals recommend not using many physical exfoliants, including flannels and cleansing brushes, and look for products that are more gentle on the skin and rinse it off with luke-warm water. If you are looking for a gentle yet powerful exfoliator, check out the SISLEY buffing cream. It will do wonder for your skin!

#Moisturizing is divine

DIOR BEAUTY Hydra Life-Glow Better Fresh Jelly Mask 50ml

Lightweight moisturizers? No thank you. We are on the lookout for something more powerful and strong for the upcoming chilly months. It’s that time of the year where we bulk up on that premium and hefty hydration for our skin. This happens because the skin is most sensitive during autumn and winter, and dries up even more in the reduced humidity and weather. It definitely requires more hydration during these months! It is recommended to invest in creams that contain glycerin and hyaluronic acid to help hold the moisture in your skin. Opt for barrier-bolstering moisturizers that contain heavy ceramides that will help support your skin’s outermost layer. For hydrating creams, look out for the Dior hydra life extra plum, which is bursting with ingredients to transform your skin. If your skin is highly damaged or dehydrated, serums will also make a great addition to your skincare routine and add a major dose of hydration.

#Serums to save your life

ESTÉE LAUDER Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II 50ml

A common belief people share is that the use of active ingredients can highly worsen dryness:-Something we are truly scared of during the colder months. Even though this is true to some extent, you should definitely not stop using it completely when autumn comes. Add some mighty and powerful serums to your day-time and night-time routines to lock in that moisture for good! For glowing skin, check out Estee Lauder’s night-time repair serum. 

So, there you go. We have collated a list of essentials for your transitional Autumn-skincare routine, that you just cannot miss out on. We don’t want to risk having a dull complexion or unhealthy skin now, can we? Go all out with your skincare regime, because you know you deserve it!
