During the winter season, as it gets colder the facial skin tends to get dry and rough easily due to such weather conditions. In order to protect the skin from such conditions a winter season skin care routine is a must. It would help in achieving a healthy look on the face against the dry, chilled and harsh weather conditions. A proper skin care routine involves hydrating, deep cleansing and moisturizing in order for the skin to maintain its glow, softness and vigour.
Hydrate with Water
Drinking water every day is the key to winter skin care. It is the basic necessity that makes the base to any beauty product that we apply to the face. Consumption of water according to the body’s daily requirement keeps the body hydrated. This means that the body will not get dry due to the external weather or environmental conditions and the toxins, impurities will get flushed out of the body on an everyday basis.
Water consumed when warm will be more effective for this purpose. It will boost the immunity and provide warmth, energy and strength. The body would be cleansed and purified from within so there will be little to no chance for the individual to catch any skin reactions or even the common ailments like cough, cold, sore throat, nausea or fever that occur during the winter season.
Exfoliation helps the process of hydration. It deep cleanses the pores removing the unwanted oil, dirt and all the impurities. Our skin dries up faster in winters due to the chilly, windy weather. Exfoliation will help get rid of these dead cells on the skin. It will help reduce acne, scars and any kinds of breakouts over the skin.
It also helps to reduce the large pores over the surface of the skin. A face exfoliatant, lip scrub and/or face oil is a must for winter skin care routine. It will provide a natural, healthy glow to the skin.
Daily usage of a quality moisturizer after providing a deep exfoliation would make the facial skin feel extremely refreshing. It is the most important skin care product for the winter season. A moisturizer would keep the dryness away. It would protect the skin from the chilly, windy winter waves.
It would help protect the outer layer of the facial skin, inducing softness and suppleness thereby providing a fresh glow to the skin.
For lips, a lip balm may be used to keep the lips soft and supple. It would help to avoid chapped lips.

A facial oil after the moisturizer may be used as the season gets colder. A facial oil helps lock the moisture. It improves the tolerance of the skin. The skin is able to withstand the dry or cold weather conditions without getting affected too easily. Usage of facial oil would also help in speeding up the skin’s healing process and the skin would get repaired at a faster pace.
People with an oily skin or sensitive skin that is more prone to acne, rashes, allergic reactions or any kinds of breakouts must be careful while using a facial oil.
Maybe a light facial massage with a cream or a light face-pack could be applied that would help get rid of any impurities that affected the facial skin during the day. After this routine a night cream or a moisturizer may be applied and left over the face overnight.
This would heal and repair the skin while we are asleep. As we get up in the morning, the skin would feel extra fresh, soft and supple. This overnight facial helps give an extra boost of cleansing and hydration to the skin.
