How can I take care of my skin in winter?
While the cold wind relieves us from the humid, hot weather, it also makes us lazy. Winter brings in a lot of perks but there are a few things we rather stay away from. Chilly winter means a moisture-sucking climate that leads to dry skin and chapped lips. But the cold wind is still a bay and we still prevent the worst of the winter skin problems if we start now but first you need to understand what causes your skin to dry.
What causes dry skin in winter?
When the temperature drops and the cold winds blow, that chilly dry air and the low humidity indoors and outside is hard on the skin. In addition to the low humidity outdoors, your skin is also disturbed by the dry, heated indoor air. The combination of cold and dry air outside and hot and dry inside sends already-dry skin into a tailspin. Combination and oily skin types are not off the hook either. If you have oily or combination skin you may find that these conditions cause your skin to look and feel dry, sensitive, red, dehydrated, and uncomfortable. However, you can use the following tips for winter skincare to keep your skin healthy, moisturized, and looking good all season long.
- Add Moisturizer in your skincare routine:
What’s better than adding a moisturizer itself in your skincare routine? Moisturizers are great against the dehydrating effects of winter. Keeping your skin hydrated is especially important because the dryness and stiffness of your skin during the cold months will make it susceptible to outbreaks. Care Honey Lotion is a favorite when it comes to the best moisturizers around. It contains extrapone honey milk, allantoin, and vitamins B3, B5, B6, A, and E which ensure healthy, soft, and hydrated skin even in winter. People with dry skin experience breakouts and extremely dehydrated skin. For such skin types, we recommend you try the Care Super Fruits Winter Lotion to double the moisturizing power. It contains scented fruit extracts with vitamins B3, B5, and E that remove discoloration, revealing smoother, softer, and incredibly moisturized skin.
- Don’t forget to apply sunscreen:
The winter season is no exception to the need to wear sunscreen. While you likely associate the sun’s damaging rays with having them beat down on you and feeling the heat on your skin, the sun comes out even when it’s cold. Care Sunblock Lotion is the ideal product for you since it protects from harmful rays while retaining your skin’s moisture content.
- Drink water:
Drink more water, and have less dry skin. Ideally, drinking at least eight glasses a day will help rid the body and skin of toxins. Many people often report that increasing their water intake gives their skin a more radiant glow.
