Tweak Your Skincare Routine As Winter 2021 Season Is Officially Here!

With the temperature starting to rise, the sun is out for a little bit and there’s no longer that chill in the air anymore. Well, days are getting shorter and nights longer In India, so winter is coming! As winter approaches, it’s the time of the year when our skin decides to behave like the Sahara Desert. Mixed up with increasing pollution, smog (of course in Delhi), and hectic work schedules, we all get tied and forget that our skin demands attention. 

It’s rightly said, “To appreciate the beauty of snowflakes, it’s necessary to stand out in the cold”. Well, it’s definitely true! The cold air robs our moisture of the skin leaving it all dry, flaky, and itchy. The skin can also cause psoriasis, severely dry skin, and eczema. That’s why one should take care of their skin and upgrade their skincare regime. Like us, you probably know by now that there are multiple factors that can affect your skin type and one of the major reasons is climate or weather change. Well, well, don’t panic, we know some of us like to spend on skincare and pretend it’s like therapy for us. For most of us, winter means dealing with flaky, tight, dry skin with white patches all around the face, neck, and elbows. To avoid all this and maintain supple, soft skin, follow these 6 steps to winter-proof your skin care routine. 

Switch To Hydrating Cleanser:

Yes, cold weather calls up for cleansers that are creamier and boosts your dry skin with a hit of moisturizer. Regardless of the season change, cleansing your face twice doesn’t change. To avoid irritation and skin tightening, opt for a cleanser with a hydration effect. Pick cleansers that are fragrance-free and come with a creamy texture to avoid natural oils stripping away from your skin. It is best advised to opt for cleansers with Hyaluronic acid, as it helps to retain water and plumps your skin. 

Swap out your moisturizing cleanser with a hydration effect like ATOPALM Facial Foam Wash 150ml that hydrates your sensitive and dry skin, leaving your skin soft and smooth. Also, it protects your skin with a moisturizing finish and reduces skin tightening after just one wash. 

Practice The Exercise Of Exfoliation: 

It’s true that your dead skin cells mixed up with other impurities settle on your skin all year round. And to keep your pores from getting clogged, one of the best ways is to exfoliate your skin at least once a week especially during winters. To keep your rashes and irritation at bay, use a mild exfoliant to cleanse your skin and remove dirt without damaging your skin. 

Use a gentle exfoliator like Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish 110g to get rid of dead skin cells, impurities, dirt, and unclog your pores. The Black Sugar melts away pore-clogging and oil and removes dead skin cells, leaving your skin soft. Also, it helps control excess sebum. Add this facial polish to your skincare routine and watch how it changes the game! 

Time To Modify Your Moisturizer 

It’s natural that during the warmer months, your skin retains moisture and produces oil so that your skin doesn’t need hydration much. Winters can wreak havoc even on non-problematic skin tone & type. So, whether you have oily, dry, normal, combination skin type, you have to replace your gel moisturizers with some heavy consistency moisturizers. To avoid your skin from peeling, drying, and even tight skin, switch your regular gel moisturizers with richer creams or lotions. 

It’s Skin Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Cream 50ml is a lightweight creamy texture cream that has Hyaluronic Acid, Centella extract which has a soothing effect, and Acerola that makes your skin look healthy. This helps in locking the moisture in your skin and keeps it all day hydrated and glowing. Truly a win-win product! 

Add Serum Right Away! 

During monsoon, due to high humidity levels, we exclude serum from our skincare routine. But now that temperature has dropped, your skin requires all the nourishment, and serums are known to penetrate deep into your skin and keeps it happy and supple. It’s true that as the humidity increases serum can make your skin suffocate.

Keep Cool Soothe Bamboo Serum 50ml is the perfect solution for all skin types especially for damaged skin. Infused with pure bamboo water and centella, it helps to calm sensitive skin and heal damaged skin. The long-lasting moisturizing properties sustain the moisture and give a cooling effect to your skin. Keep Cool Soothe Bamboo Serum will keep you revived all day long! 

A Yes To Mask Sheet! 

Well, well, your Sunday self-care routine needs an upgrade! Your winter skincare routine includes a sheet mask as our skin tends to become difficult in winters due to indoor and outdoor temperature and of course the continuous use of hot water. This strips off the natural oil of the skin leaving it all dull and dry. 

Once a week, use a FarmSkin Superfood Green Tea mask sheet as it will keep your skin hydrated, supple, and soft. It deeply hydrates your skin by preventing the loss of moisture. The mask sheet comes with a soothing effect of Vitamin B that protects your skin by suppressing the growth of microorganisms. Trust us, by including this step in your winter skincare routine, you’ll question yourself why you’ve been doing this all season! 

Soak In Sunscreen 

Be it summer, monsoon, or winters, Sunscreen is one such product that you just can’t avoid. In winters, one can get away even using a moisturizer with a light SPF but as soon as you step out in the sun, SPF is your BAE. 

Use a lightweight sunscreen with at least SPF 50 like Suntique I’m Pure Perfect Cica that comes with  SPF 50 PA ++++ Protection and EWG green formula that suits all skin types. It protects your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays and feels non-sticky on your skin and soaks into your skin completely. 

This winter let your skin breathe completely and feel radiant all day long! All you have to do is follow these steps and add the products mentioned above. You can get your hands on these products exclusively on Maccaron. Happy skincare!
