Getting The Glow: Skincare Tips For Beautiful Winter Skin

Not to sound all Game of Thrones but winter is coming, which means that now is the ideal time to start tweaking your skincare routine. The fact is that as the seasons change so does your skin, which is why it is important to have a skincare routine in place for each different time of year.

Of course, of all the different times of the year, the season that it is most important to have a good skincare routine in place for is winter. This is because the combination of the cold outdoor weather and the heat indoors from central heating can cause dryness and soreness, among other skin problems.

However, the good news is that it is possible to achieve that glow in winter, it’s just a case of knowing what care it takes to get it glowing. So bearing that in mind, below are a selection of skincare tips that should help you to ensure that this winter your skin looks (and feels) it’s very best.

Start and end each day the same way

During the colder months, each day should start and end the same way when it comes to skincare. Begin each day by cleansing to remove dirt and oil that has built up on your skin overnight - for this, use cotton wool pads and cleanser, not cleansing wipes. (Cleansing wipes move dirt and oil around, they don’t actually remove it from your skin.) Follow cleansing by toning, then apply day moisturizer to your skin. This should be light and perfume free and should contain SPF protection to help prevent sun damage to your skin. Each evening, your skincare routine should be very similar, except that a night cream is needed instead of a day moisturizer. The cold weather and warm heating mean that in the winter months, moisturizing your skin becomes incredibly important.

Don’t overdo the exfoliation

Your skin naturally sheds dead and dry skin cells. However, it doesn’t always shed them quickly enough. That’s where exfoliation comes in - to help ensure that your skin doesn’t end up dry and rough, regular exfoliation is vital. To gain a better insight into the benefits of exfoliation, resources like www.exfoliate.com can be useful. A common mistake that many people make with exfoliation is over exfoliating - this is something that far too many people do. However, over exfoliating your skin will cause it to become dry, red and sore, so it’s important only to exfoliate once or twice a week, and no more than that.

Always carry salve

To prevent skin chapping when you are out and about, it’s a good idea to always carry some form of salve with you at all times. Whether it’s a homemade soothing balm or a tin of shea butter, it doesn’t matter. All that matters is that at all times you have a soothing product that can be applied to your skin to prevent chapping and dryness, helping to keep your skin glowing.

There you have it, skincare tips for more beautiful winter skin.
