If you thought the hot summers cause damage to your skin, then the dry, winter months are nothing less. Say hello to the season of dry, flaky skin, cracked cuticles, and chapped lips. With the colder months approaching soon, your regular skincare routine won’t help you much in making your skin survive one of the harshest weathers. You must nourish your skin inside out and ensure that its natural glow remains intact, with the help of some quick beauty hacks and nutrient-rich products that will protect your sensitive skin. Here are some tips that you could follow to shine and glow all day long during the colder months.Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise!
It goes without saying that as the temperatures start dropping, the first causality of the season is your skin. As the skin starts getting dry and patchy, it turns flaky and begins to crack. To avoid this painful repercussion of the winters, amp up your moisturizing game to nourish and hydrate the skin at regular intervals. The Caudalie Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet is one of our top favourites when it comes to achieving optimum levels of skin moisturization. Your skin needs protection not just during the day but at night too, and for that, we trust with our eyes (and pores) closed, the Decleor Aromessence Neroli Amara Hydrating Balm that dissolves into the skin and comforts stressed skin.
Not just the summers, but your skin needs its regular dose of hydration in the winters too. While a major part of the Hyaluronic acid needed by you is present in your skin, but as your skin gets dryer in colder months, you must stock up on products that are rich with this gel-like, water-binding element that helps reduce skin irritation, wrinkles and quenches your thirsty skin. Active Care Store has some of the best skincare products for the winter with hyaluronic acids. Try the Caudalie Moisturising Mask for a relaxing moisture session at home. For your daily cleansing routine, you can try Decleor Aroma Cleanse 3 in 1 smoothing and cleansing mousse. And in the end you can replenish your skin with Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Serum. These products not only hydrate your skin and protect you from dry skin, but unleash your natural glow as well.

Cleansing your skin with soap bars does not deep cleanse your skin, but instead strips away your skin of its vital oils and hydration. Regularly using soap to wash your face or exfoliating can make sensitive skin dry up even more. Switching to solution-based cleansers and scrubs for your skincare is therefore advisable not just during winters, but for year-around skincare routine. Our favourites have always been cleansers that go easy on your skin and deep-cleanse all impurities. You can switch your facial soap with the Dermalogica Essential Cleansing Solution for your daily cleanse. And consider the Decleor Life Radiance Scrub to be used as a face scrub once in a week, to exfoliate dry dead skin cells, leaving behind soft supple smooth skin.
Sometimes, just 12 hours of the day is not enough to provide your skin with the nutrition and hydration it requires to survive the harsh winters. Let your good night’s sleep also add to the beauty and nutrition of your skin too. As a part of your night skin-care routine, include the various overnight leave-in products that help you wake up to a youthful, plump skin every day. As your skin begins to get dry and wrinkled by end of the day, use the Caudalie Resveratrol Lift Night Infusion cream on the face and neck before hitting the sack. Another leave-in product is the Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask, that helps your skin replenish its lost hydration. Wake up looking better than even this winter!
Winter is coming and it obviously means you need to make immediate tweaks to your skin and hair care routine. It is advisable that you start using nourishing oils and oil-based products that replenish your skin and hair of the moisture loss and repair the damaged cells. Among the range of skincare products available at Active Care store, one of the best we’d like to suggest is the Caudalie Divine Oil, a multi-purpose oil to use on hair and skin. It can help get rid of dry skin, cracked cuticles and split ends. For those looking for an oil-based product, the Aromessence Magnolia Youthful oil serum by Decleor for your skin is the perfect option that repairs your skin of the winter damage and makes it glow.
As your skin loses its moisture, gets flaky and dry, it starts to lose its natural glow and begins to look dull and pale. And on days when you are out all day or travelling, it is difficult to keep up with your skin-care regime and that is where picking the right foundation cream to go comes to your rescue. The Revlon Colorstay Makeup Foundation is one of our go-to foundations on winter days as it not only gives a flawless finish to the skin but protects it from the harsh weather too. Don’t forget to wear one of our favourite moisturizers mentioned above under the foundation! For those who wish to keep it light, the Hydra Floral BB Cream by Decleor is the best option to go for, as it not only smoothens your skin but also add moisture to it and maintains your shade all day.
One of the most troubling parts about the arrival of the winters is chapped, dry lips. The cold weather not only sucks up the moisture in your lips, but it forms cracks on the sensitive skin. To protect your luscious lips from the damage and to maintain its lovely plumpness, we suggest the Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment and the Age Smart Renewal Lip Complex. These daily-use moisturizing lip treatment balms help fix the chapped lips and inject much-needed hydration with every application.
Say goodbye to hoodies and face-covering caps this winter and flaunt your beautiful, flawless skin every day, no matter how much the mercury drops.
