Your Winter Skincare Routine: The Do's and Don'ts

Winter can cause problems on your skin in a variety of ways. People with sensitive skin or eczema are more likely to develop skin problems in the winter and must take special care of their skin. These disorders can cause skin sensitivity, itching, and irritation. There are specific winter skincare dos and don'ts that you should follow to make the most of the season and reduce drying skin, redness, and irritability.

Do Moisturize Daily:

Keeping your skin moisturized is essential during the winter months. If you daily use a moisturizer, try a skin care product that keeps your skin hydrated for hours. Moisturizers rehydrate and seal in moisture to the skin layers. The thicker and greasier a moisturizer, the more effective it will be. Apply a moisturizer shortly after bathing while your skin is still moist.

Care Honey Lotion pampers the skin with a formula that is rich in natural Honey, Grape Seed oils, and Vitamin E. It replenishes the skin while providing a natural glow that makes it look fresh and beautiful. It contains Vitamin B3, B5, and B6 along with Extra pone Honey Milk.

Care Fairness Cold Cream is fortified with a fairness formula and Vitamin B3, Vitamin E, Vitamin B5, and Aloe Vera Extracts. It is non-sticky and absorbs quickly into the skin giving you perfect and glowing skin.

Don’t Forget Your Sun Protection:

The winter sun is just as bad for your skin as it is in the summer. Wear sunscreen whether you're inside or out. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen to your face and hands for about 30 minutes before heading outside. If you have to stay outdoors for an extended period, reapply periodically. Sun protection is equally crucial in the winter.

Care Sunblock Lotion provides an effective broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection while keeping the skin moisturized and hydrated.

Do Moisturize Hands:

Dry hands are a big worry in the winter, particularly in the highlands. Choose a product with specific active ingredients to give your hands hydration.

Pure Almond & Honey Petroleum Jelly keeps the skin moisturized and hydrated for prolonged periods. It provides long-lasting smoothness and softness to dry skin. Leaves the skin fresh & invigorated after each application.

Don’t Take A Hot Shower:

Too much time in the hot shower might be harmful to your skin. It can damage your skin's lipid layer, irritating your skin. Use lukewarm water, and don't linger under the water for any longer than required.

Do Wash Your Face With Gentle Cleanser:

Cleansing is one of the most crucial processes in skin care. Avoid washing your entire face if you have extremely dry or sensitive skin; use softer micelle water and wash wipes to remove pollutants.

Don’t Over Exfoliate:

Exfoliating will make your skin smoother in a flash, but in the winter, you'll want to do it less or altogether avoid it. When the skin is already dry, exfoliation can easily cause redness. Also, avoid combining physical and chemical exfoliation since this will make your skin more prone to redness and sensitivity.

Don’t Skip Hydration:

Winter is a period when you might easily cut off your water intake. So that you don't forget to drink enough water during the day, have a water bottle close by. For a cozy winter, a drink is good for the skin to indulge in more herbal teas like green tea and chamomile.

Do Eat Healthy Food:

A balanced diet is essential for maintaining water content and increasing sebum production in the body. Skin health can be managed by eating foods high in vitamins E, A, and C. Consuming an abundance of antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables also heart-healthy fats like fish, seeds, and nuts can help keep your skin soft and supple. Low humidity throughout the winter is one of the primary causes of dull skin.
