WINTER SKINCARE CHANGES YOU NEED TO MAKE
As the temperature drop, our skin tends to get dry and luminous glow from the sunshine seems like a distant memory. Hair also becomes brittle as it's exposed to heat, as well as cold. Basically winters, although festive and fun, can wreck havoc on your beauty games.
Here are few skincare rules to save your SKIN
MOISTURIZE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE
So, keeping your skin moisturized is necessary for winters. The atmosphere makes the skin dry. Therefore, apply the moisturizer as much as possible before going out especially to retain skin's moisture. During winters you need to apply thicker formulas, like cream moisturizer will help in lock hydration. If you have oily or acne prone skin, be sure to check that the formula is non-comdeogenic. Always carry a lip balm to keep your lips moisturized and crack free.
BE MINDFUL TO SENSITIVE SKIN
If you notice your skin is more sensitive in winters YOU SHOULD avoid irritants like soaps, wipes and fragrances. Instead use soaps that are fragrance free, hypoallergenic products. Go for cleansers instead of soaps If you are having conditions like mild eczema, seborrheic dermatitis or acne, head over to a dermatologist. That will permanently improve your problems.
DON'T FORGET SUN PROTECTION
So let's make it clear sun creams are not only necessary for summer's tanning yourself on a beach. Although a lot of foundations, moisturizer and primers contain at least SPF 15, which is not probably enough protection for winters. Most aging and wrinkling of the skin is due to sun exposure and using sun protection will reduce the photo-aging process.
