Winter’s harshness may harm your skin, irritate it, and even make you miserable. No matter how many great skincare companies exist, most products are either ineffective or downright harmful when misused.
When the first biting winter wind blows, you must resist the urge to run out and load your medicine cabinet with a wide range of lotions and potions. You can maintain your skin shining, healthy, and happy in the winter by using natural moisturising products or home treatments. Consider incorporating as many of the following winter skincare suggestions as possible into your routine. You may be surprised at how great you look and how fast your winter symptoms go when you see yourself in the mirror.
Stay hydrated at all times
Dehydration and skin irritation are common problems in the winter due to low humidity. Reusable water bottles allow you to drink water more slowly throughout the day. Drinking warm winter beverages like natural ginger and lemon helps keep you hydrated. Staying warm and eating healthy can help you have enough energy all winter. This is a win-win situation for all!
Choose your cleanser wisely
Many over-the-counter cleaners contain harsh chemicals that may harm rather than nourish your skin. Alcohol and other scents can deplete the skin’s natural oils, aggravating dry, cracked skin. Cream-based cleansers help keep skin moisturised while effectively removing debris and makeup.
Regular exfoliation will improve your skin’s appearance
Exfoliating your skin in the winter, when it is dry and rough, has many benefits. Exfoliation removes not only dead skin cells but also promotes new cell growth. You can make exfoliating scrubs at home using ingredients you already have in your pantry, like this fragrant geranium and orange scrub.
Limit your showers’ duration
On a cold day, it’s tempting to reach for the water heater and turn up the heat for a long hot shower or bath. To avoid overheating, reduce the amount of hot water you use and soak time. Hot water also dries out your skin and hair by removing natural oils. If you get out of the shower with red, itchy skin, you’ve over exfoliated. Despite this, there seems to be cause for optimism. Then it’s up to us to finish everything.
After cleaning, moisturise your skin with natural products
Choosing facial moisturisers and body lotions should be carefully considered. Use oil-based products rather than water-based ones to keep your skin’s natural moisturising oils intact. Use a cream or moisturiser after washing your face to keep your skin hydrated longer. Remind yourself of the importance of your hands and feet. How do you want us to respond to your command? Making this lovely body butter requires a medicinal essential oil blend, organic butter and oils. If you run out of body lotion, coconut oil as a replacement!
Keep away from the elements
Winter is harder on the skin than summer. We all have a pocket essential lip balm on hand for dry, chapped lips. That’s not enough. Low humidity and hot blasts may cause dry skin. These alpaca and sheep wool gloves should be worn under your scarf or cap if you have sensitive skin on your neck. If you have sensitive skin, wearing a lot of cold-weather clothing may irritate you. As a result, avoid many winter clothing options. To avoid skin irritation from scratchy or abrasive winter fabrics, wear natural, breathable base layers.
Summer sunblock isn’t just for the beach or pool!
Winter sun protection is as important as summer sun protection. Face, neck, and hands should all be protected with sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher (if any of these areas are exposed). Remember to check areas like the back of the ears and the lips that are easily overlooked.
