Winter Skin Care Guide

Winter Skin Care Guide

Autumn has taken a firm hold and we’re now well on our way towards colder days and longer nights. The good news is that this means we’re also well on our way towards Christmas. But winter is definitely bad news for your skin. Chapped lips and dry hands can afflict us all, so we’ve put together a guide to keeping your skin healthy and hydrated until spring.

MoisturiseMoisturiser

Even when you think your body is protected by all your layers of clothes during winter, you still need to moisturise it every day. This is especially true for exposed areas of skin, such as your face and your hands. Use a hydrating body wash or apply a moisturizer after your bath for best effect.

Nourish your skin

During winter your skin will be exposed to changes in temperature, especially when you step outside. That’s what cause dryness. To counter the effects of these temperature changes you should nourish your skin with a lotion or serum.

Heal your lipsBadger Lip Balm

One of the most unpleasant things about winter is dry, crackedlips. Choose an efficient lip balm or lip butter to shield your lips during the day. You could even put on your lip balm at night and keep it on your lips all night long.

Change your skincare routine

If you’re only using one skincare routine for the whole year winter is the best time to start a new one. Try to build a routine adapted to the weather and to your skin type, taking care to choose one that will help to moisturize your skin.

Hydrating face mask

Your face gets a lot of exposure to the cold, so using a hydrating mask during winter can give your skin a real boost. Even better, you can take advantage of the time your mask is on to relax.

Take a warm bath or shower, not a hot one

If you use water that is too hot it will only make your skin dryer. Even though a hot shower might feel good when it’s cold, try turning the temperature down a bit to help your skin hold on to its natural moisture.

Nourish your hands and nailsBronnley Hand Cream

Along with your face your hands are going to be exposed most to the cold. Try a moisturising hand cream to hydrate your hands, nails and heal your cuticles.

Bonus tip - Drink plenty of water and get proper nutrition

What you eat during winter also has an impact on your skin. Eat foods like grapefruit, broccoli, and chocolate which contain Vitamin D, K and B and skin-smoothing compounds to give your skin the best possible care this season. You also need to drink water to preserve your skin from dryness.
