TRANSITION INTO A WINTER SKIN CARE ROUTINE WITH THESE 3 SIMPLE STEPS
As the temperatures begin to drop and you start bundling up in your favourite cozy sweaters, so too should your skincare routine evolve to fit in with the new season. The frosty months are the perfect time to treat your skin with extra TLC, to prevent dryness and keep your skin happy and healthy. We’re all familiar with dry, itchy skin during winter, but what you may not realize is that dry skin for prolonged periods of time can accelerate the signs of ageing. Hydrated skin truly is the key to healthy and youthful skin! Ensuring your skin stays hydrated during winter shouldn’t be complicated. With these three simple steps, you’ll enjoy hydrated, glowing and radiant skin no matter how low the temps drop!
AMP UP THE MOISTURE WITH MORE INTENSE PRODUCTS
Even if you’re happy with your current skincare routine, the products you were using during the warmer months are not going to be enough for your skin when the bitter cold arrives. During winter, the air becomes very dry and this dry air simply sucks moisture out of your skin. If you’re only wearing a light moisturiser, it’s going to be no match against the harsh winter air. To protect your skin against the dry air, as well as the accompanying bone-chilling winds, be sure to slather your skin in a deep moisturiser that will provide a protective barrier on your skin, locking moisture in and keeping pollutants out.

INVEST IN A HUMIDIFIER
The dry air of winter may seem like a Catch-22 situation. Not only are you exposed to harsh air outdoors, but when you step into your toasty home to warm up, your skin is then exposed to dry air caused by indoor heating. The best way to combat the dry air is to infuse it with moisture and the quickest way to do this is by investing in a good humidifier. Humidifiers work by replacing lost moisture in the air so that your skin (and your sinuses!) can feel soothed and hydrated.
Try adding a few essential oils to transform the atmosphere in your home depending on your mood. Lavender and bergamot work especially well when you’re feeling stressed, while peppermint will help you focus and jasmine creates the perfect romantic atmosphere for your next date night in!
SNACK SMART TO LOCK HYDRATION IN
Many people underestimate the power of food to heal from within and promote that beautiful, glowing skin you’re lusting after. A regular diet of processed, deep-fried foods will result in an overall dull complexion that ages much quicker than it should! Start adding whole, nutrient-rich foods into your diet and you’ll be amazed at the incredible results! Here are a few of our favourite foods for hydrating the skin from the inside out. Don’t let winter take control of your skin! Fight back with these tips and enjoy hydrated, smooth skin all season long!
