Basic Tips for Radiant Skin in Winter

Winter is a beautiful season but it can also be harsh on our skin. Low temperatures, cold winds, and indoor heating can weaken its natural hydration, leaving it dry, flaky, and sensitive. Fortunately, there are measures you can take to prepare and keep it radiant during the colder months.

Skincare Steps to Protect Your Skin in Winter

  1. Deep Facial Cleansing Use a gentle, alcohol-free cleanser to remove impurities without drying out your skin. Opt for one that contains natural moisturizing ingredients like almond oil.

  2. Gentle Exfoliation Exfoliate your face and body once or twice a week with a gentle scrub to remove dead cells. Make sure to use a peel suitable for your skin type to avoid irritating it with abrasive exfoliants.

  3. Sun Protection in Winter? Yes! Even in winter, UV rays can damage your skin. That's why experts recommend using suitable sunscreen to protect your face from sudden temperature changes and prevent redness or dermatological diseases like skin cancer.

  4. Don't Forget the Eye Contour! Although it may not seem like it, it's essential to protect the area around our eyes as it's one of the most delicate parts of our skin. Use a gentle, moisturizing eye contour to prevent dryness and dark circles caused by the cold.

  5. Deep Hydration Natural oils have benefits to make your skin look more radiant. Apply a moisturizing cream for both face and body rich in natural oils like jojoba oil, with antioxidant properties, or rosehip oil, with anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties.

  6. Hydrate and Protect Your Lips Regularly apply moisturizing lip balm, especially before going outdoors, to prevent cracks and improve their appearance. 



Change Your Habits to Protect Your Skin

  1. Drink Plenty of Water Drinking enough water throughout the day is essential to keep your skin hydrated, especially in winter. During this time of year, we don't feel as thirsty as in summer, so it's essential to drink at least 2 liters of water throughout the day. Although it may not seem like it, this habit can radically change your skin!

  2. Bundle Up, It's Cold Outside Cold wind can be especially harmful to your skin as it can dry it out and cause redness. To prevent this, use scarves, gloves, and warm clothing to maintain your body temperature and avoid sudden temperature changes.

  3. Avoid Very Hot Showers Extremely hot showers can dry out the skin. Opt for lukewarm showers and don't prolong them too much.

  4. Limit the Use of Heating Don't set the heating temperature too high at home as it can dry out the air and affect our skin. Use blankets and warm clothing instead to maintain body heat.

  5. Prioritize Rest Getting enough sleep is essential not only to face the new day but also because it directly affects the health of your skin. Good sleep allows your skin to produce the necessary vitamins and regenerate properly.

By following these skincare steps and daily habits, you can protect your skin from the cold and keep it healthy and radiant during the winter months.
