Many people like winters-the season of festivities but it also brings some downsides for our skincare too. As the winter arrives, many of us, especially women, become concerned about their skincare. One of the major concerns is dry skin. With the temperature drop, the moisture level also declines and our water intake is also lowered. This leads to a very dry and old looking skin.
I am a winter-loving person but also want my skin to look soft and glowing all year around. I regularly visit the dermatologist to get useful tips for my skin. Last week my skin was poorly damaged due to sudden seasonal change, so I visited the Akhtar Saeed Trust Hospital where I came across the best dermatologist in Lahore. The dermatologist gave me some very useful tips and told me about some skincare products.
Following are some best skincare products for making your winters more enjoyable.
Product # 1: Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer:
A good moisturizer must be in your bag all year around. It is the basic product to maintain your skin in its healthy form. In winters, you can up your hydration game by using a hyaluronic acid moisturizer. In the extra dry season, the skincare becomes extremely fragile and easily damaged. In these times, any moisturizer containing hyaluronic acid is the best option for your skin.
Product # 2: Face Serum:
Face is the most important part of the body. Everyone wants his/her face to look glowing and wrinkle free. But as the cold winds blow, the face is immediately affected as our urge to consume water is also reduced and wrinkles start to appear on the face. But no worries! you can replenish your youthful look by using a hyaluronic acid face serum.
Product # 3: Face Scrub:
It might seem illogical to use face scrub in winters, but gently scrubbing is necessary to wipe off the dead skin. Exfoliation helps the moisturizer work properly. Scrubbing removes the dirt, oil and other impurities and buffs away the dullness. After messaging the scrub all over the face wash it with lukewarm water. You can also use this for your lips.
Product # 4: Charcoal Mask:
It’s not surprising that dullness is the aftermath of dry skin. Pollution and UV rays are the major enemies of your skin, making it dull and tired. But thanks to various face mask products you can wipe off these impurities easily. Swap your routine mask with Charcoal Mask. It not only buffs away the dull skincare but also even out the skin tone.
Product # 5: Cica Cream:
Are you afraid of looking aged before time? Don’t be, because you can solve this problem by adding cica cream in your routine skin care products. Cica cream contains pro retinol that provides a protective layer to the skin. It provides a softer and more radiant visage.
Product # 6: Moisturizing Self-tanner:
It’s a myth that you lose your rock golden color in the winters. Yes! You can enjoy a bronzed glow even in chilly winters by adding self-tanner in your routine. Self-tanner also helps to moisturize your skin.
Follow these steps for using any self-tanner:
Step 1: Wash and scrub your skin.
Step 2: Apply a light-layer of self-tanner lotion onto clean skin. Message around your ankles, knees, and elbows.
Step 3: Don’t’ forget to wash your hands properly after applying the self-tanner from transferring it onto your clothes.
Step 4: Wait until your skin dries before putting on clothes.
Step 5: Apply the product on a daily basis to achieve the desired results.
Product # 7: Night cream:
Is night cream massage in your daily routine? If not, make it your habit to properly apply any good moisturizer on your face, hands and feet before sleeping. This works magically to boost your skin as you get the beauty sleep. At night, our body’s healing process speeds up and the moisturizer absorbs quickly leaving behind soft and glowing skin.
I hope this article will help you to maintain your skin these winters! Always use skincare products that suit you best and in case of any issue consult the dermatologist.
