Winter is coming. While some of you might get this Game of Thrones reference, others might immediately start dreading the skincare issues associated with the season. From acne breakouts to excessive dryness, you can face an infinite number of winter skin problems. Learn more about common winter skin problems and how to tackle them below.
Importance of using a richer, hydrating moisturiser in winter
The chilly and frosty winds during the winter months can make your skin dry. This dryness is often accompanied by redness and itching. Due to this dryness, winter and skin problems go hand in hand. A rich and hydrating moisturiser during the winter season is essential for protecting your skin against the rough and cold weather outside.
The Waterlight Gel Moisturiser 72 Hour Hydration is suitable for all skin types and can offer up to 72 hours of hydration after application. Your skin will be able to immediately absorb this moisturiser and make your skin soft, supple, and hydrated. We have formulated this moisturiser with four active ingredients to restore the moisture balance of your skin.
Exfoliant to remove dead skin cells
Our skin cells die and regenerate every day. But during the winter season, the skin cells start dying at a faster rate. The dry weather outside contributes to the accumulation of more dead skin cells during the winter.
As a result, our skin begins to look extremely dull during the winter months. Therefore, exfoliation becomes pretty essential to keep your skin healthy and bright during the winter season.
However, several people believe that exfoliation will only increase their dry skin issues in winter. As long as you stick with a gentle exfoliator, it will be beneficial for your skin. Moreover, you need to exfoliate for a maximum of two times a week.
If you are looking for a gentle exfoliator for the winter season, go with the Overnight Exfoliating AHA BHA Radiance Mask. This product will exfoliate your skin on a deeper level and prevent blackheads, whiteheads, and acne breakouts. But at the same time, it will provide an adequate amount of moisture to the upper layer of your skin. You can use the AHA BHA Mask once a week.
Redness and rosacea aggravation
The cold winds during the winter months can be extremely damaging for rosacea-prone skin. People with rosacea usually notice an aggravation in their skin issues during the winter months. The drying weather outside during the winter season removes the protective barrier on the skin and contributes to itching and redness. It is essential to use a good moisturiser to provide the skin with adequate hydration and create a protective layer on top of the skin.
How winter can affect acne-prone skin
During the winter season, your skin has an increased likelihood of becoming dry. To compensate for this dryness, your body will start producing sebum in excess. This excess sebum production leads to clogged pores and results in acne breakouts on your skin.
The Clearing & Calming Acne Face Wash is an effective cleanser for people with acne-prone skin. If you want to save your skin from winter-related acne breakouts, you also need to use the Acne Care & Healing Gel Moisturiser with Tea Tree & Cica. It will meet the hydration needs of your skin while accelerating the acne-healing process. However, following a proper skincare regimen is essential. You have to wash and cleanse your skin with the face wash first, and then apply the moisturiser for perfect hydration.
The importance of sun protection during winter
A lot of people tend to avoid wearing sunscreen during the winter season. But if you want to avoid winter season skin problems, sun protection is essential. While the heat of the sun might not be high and even feel comfortable during the winter months, the damaging effects of the UV rays are still present.
That’s why the Mineral Matte Tinted Sunscreen must be in your skincare regimen throughout the year. We have formulated the sunscreen using natural ingredients to deliver broad-spectrum sun protection without leaving behind a whitish effect on your skin. Moreover, the lightweight formulation will ensure that your skin doesn’t feel greasy and all the pores will remain open.
If you want to keep winter face skin problems at bay, you must recognise the importance of proper skincare. Choosing the right products as per the needs of your skin is something you can’t compromise on, particularly during the winter season. So, give your skin the attention it needs during the winter months and enjoy a youthful and radiant appearance.
