Seasons change and so should our skincare regime with it. We are in the thick of winter, and this is the time of year when our skin needs extra care. The skin may become extremely dry due to changes in the weather and temperature, and dry skin can also cause other problems like cracked lips, flaking, etc. The skin must be nourished for it to properly retain moisture. Here are some simple steps you should include in your skincare routine this winter for healthy and glowing skin.

Winter skincare routines and moisturisers go hand in hand. As important as it is to moisturise skin immediately after a shower, moisturising before bed can help you wake up with healthy, refreshed skin. Choose a moisturiser that contains ingredients like cocoa butter and wheat germ oil. In addition to nourishing and keeping skin supple, cocoa butter is known to keep the skin hydrated for a long time. Wheat germ oil is a rich source of Vitamin E which also works to prevent scarring and repair the skin while locking in moisture.

Don’t Forget Your Lips

Cold weather can cause our lips to become dry and chapped. Using a quality lip balm can help hydrate the lips and make them look soft. Opting for a lip balm enriched with, carrot seed oil, cocoa butter, and shea butter, and SPF will nourish your lips and protect them from UV rays. You can also invest in a lip scrub to exfoliate the lips and top it with a lip balm for better results.

Stay Hydrated

It is important to stay hydrated during winter. Your skin can benefit from the daily consumption of 8 to 12 glasses of water. Eat seasonal fruits as part of your diet. Fruits and vegetables that are in season not only taste delicious but also include nutrients that good for your body. Consuming foods high in omega 3, Vitamins A, C, and E can also help you have healthy, hydrated skin.
