Winter is the best time to switch up your skincare routine. The cold air and dry heat of winter can wreak havoc on our skin, which is why it’s important to add some new products into the mix. Why not try out these new items for your winter skincare routine:
Night Eye Cream
Eye cream is a great way to help keep your skin looking younger. The skin around your eyes is thinner than the rest of your face and therefore it needs extra moisture and protection against environmental toxins. However, it’s important to note that eye creams are not the same as face creams; they contain higher concentrations of active ingredients such as retinol or peptides which fight signs of aging. Eye creams should be applied at night before bedtime – they absorb better when you sleep so you wake up with smoother, firmer skin in the morning! As with all skincare products, always apply an SPF during the day if possible. For best results use an eye cream along with other skincare products such as facial oil or serum; applying them together ensures maximum absorption into the skin cells (like when you mix water with paint)
Lip scrub is a must-have for anyone who wants their lips to look and feel smooth. A good lip scrub will exfoliate the skin of your lips, leaving them feeling soft and ready for lipstick or gloss (if you’re into that). It’s important to note that not all lip scrubs are created equal. Some scrubs contain gritty ingredients like salt or sugar, which are designed to remove dead skin on your lips. Others use natural ingredients like jojoba oil and honey instead of traditional abrasives—these tend to have a more moisturizing effect on the skin as well as being less harsh on sensitive areas like around the mouth. Regardless of which type you choose, how often should you use it? Well…as often as possible! Just like face masks or hand creams, lip scrubs should be applied regularly so they can work their magic properly over time. As we said earlier: they’ll help keep your pout looking fresh faced even after long days out in winter weather – no matter how dry it gets outside!
Alcohol-free toner is a great way to keep your skin hydrated, remove makeup and prevent breakouts. Toner is an after-cleansing lotion that helps remove any remaining debris on your face, including dirt and excess oil. I like to use it right after washing my face with a gentle cleanser (like CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser). Alcohol-free toners are easy to find at drugstores or beauty shops, but they can be pricey. If you’re looking for an inexpensive alternative that’s effective as well as alcohol-free, consider making your own! All you need is some water, some witch hazel extract (which can be found in many drugstore products), some lemon juice (or other fruit juices that contain vitamin C) and lavender essential oil – along with a bottle of course! I recommend using plastic bottles so you don’t have any issues with leaks later on down the line when storing this homemade concoction overnight before using it again tomorrow morning.”
Moisturiser is the last step in your skincare routine, and it’s a must for keeping skin hydrated and smooth. You should apply moisturiser after cleansing and toning, then wait about 10 minutes before applying any other products. For example, if you’re using an exfoliant or retinol treatment on your face (and you should be), you’ll want to wait around 20 minutes after those before applying a serum or moisturiser—or even better yet: treat your skin with a mask first! Moisturisers are also great for soothing irritated skin thanks to ingredients like lavender oil or aloe leaf extract—but some people find that they actually exacerbate irritation when they apply them directly after cleansing their faces. If this happens for you, try keeping your cleanser on longer than usual so that it has time to soak into your pores without leaving behind any residue that could cause further irritation as soon as it dries down again.
Masking is a wonderful way to treat your skin and get it the hydration it needs. It’s not just for dry skin, though; if your face feels tight or stressed from the cold weather, masking is an effective way to relax and relieve any stressors on the face. You can do this at home with products you already have in your bathroom—for example, honey has natural antibiotic properties that help protect against infection in wounds and can be used as a moisturizer for dry skin. Oatmeal also makes for a great DIY exfoliant because of its anti-inflammatory properties, so adding oat flour to your favourite cleanser will give you super soft skin after cleansing!
Dehydration lines are a common winter skincare problem. Dry skin is more prone to developing these fine lines, and they can also be caused by age. Fortunately there are some simple ways you can tackle dehydration lines using hyaluronic acid products:
● Moisturize with a hyaluronic acid base. Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in our bodies and helps keep the skin hydrated. It also absorbs water, making it great for moisturizing the skin. Look for moisturizers with this ingredient or ones that contain ingredients like shea butter or grapeseed oil that can help lock moisture into your face’s surface layer of cells (the stratum corneum).
● Use a serum with hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C & E as part of your daily routine! These options will help repair damaged cells while providing youthful-looking benefits such as collagen production and sun protection from UVA rays—so go ahead and protect yourself from UV rays while adding hydration back into your life!
Winter is a great time to add some new products into your routine.
The chilly weather can have a dehydrating effect on skin, so it’s important to up your moisturizing game. But if you’re not sure where to start, don’t worry—we’ve got you covered.
Winter is one of the best seasons for skin care because it presents some great opportunities for adding new products into your skincare routine. That’s because cold temperatures make our bodies produce more oil, which clogs pores and leads to breakouts if we don’t pay attention (and if we aren’t already naturally oily). In addition, winter air has lower humidity levels than summertime air—which means that the moisture in our sweat evaporates more quickly when we go outside this time of year, making us especially prone to dryness.
Here are six winter-specific products that will help keep your face hydrated:
