Skip the harsh cleansers and welcome a hydrating cleanser to your routine. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid or glycerin to lock in moisture while gently cleansing away impurities. This sets the perfect foundation for your winter skincare routine.

Swap out your lightweight moisturiser for a richer formula that provides intense hydration. Ingredients such as rosehip oil, Vitamin A and E create a protective barrier, preventing moisture loss and keeping your skin supple.

Give your skin a hydration boost with hyaluronic acid serum. This magical ingredient attracts and retains water, ensuring your skin stays plump and dewy. Apply it before your moisturiser to maximize its hydrating effect.

Combat winter dullness with an exfoliating scrub that sloughs away dead skin cells. Opt for a gentle scrub with natural exfoliants like sugar or jojoba beads to reveal a brighter, more radiant complexion.

Don’t let the winter sun fool you – harmful UV rays are still at play. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every morning to shield your skin from potential damage. Choose a formula that works well under makeup for added convenience.

6. Lip Balm

Winter winds can wreak havoc on your lips, leaving them dry and chapped. Keep a nourishing lip balm in your pocket or purse and reapply throughout the day. Look for ingredients like peptides, shea butter, and vitamin C or E for an extra boost of moisture.

Extend your skincare routine beyond your face by indulging in a luxurious body lotion. Shea butter or cocoa butter-infused options provide deep hydration, leaving your skin silky smooth, and protected from winter’s harsh conditions.

After all, winter skincare is all about embracing hydration, protection, and a touch of indulgence.
