Habit Hack: Prepping Your Skin for Winter

 

 

As the leaves change colors and the temperature drops, it's a clear sign that winter is just around the corner. While the cozy sweaters and hot chocolate are certainly enjoyable, the colder months can take a toll on your skin. Harsh winds, dry indoor heating, and chilly temperatures can leave your skin feeling dry, tight, and even flaky. But fear not, we've got some habit hacks to help you prepare your skin for the chill and keep it glowing all season long.


  1. Stay Hydrated

The cold air can zap the moisture from your skin, leading to dryness and irritation. Make sure you're drinking enough water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. 


  1. Switch to a Gentle Cleanser

Opt for a gentle, hydrating cleanser that will clean your skin without over-drying it. Look for products with ingredients like hyaluronic acid or glycerin to help retain moisture.


  1. Moisturise Regularly

Lock in moisture by using a rich, emollient moisturiser. Apply it to your face and body right after showering or washing your face to trap in the moisture while your skin is still damp. Don't forget to pay extra attention to areas that tend to get dry, like your elbows, knees, and hands.


  1. Sunscreen Isn't Just for Summer

Even in the winter months, UV rays can damage your skin. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 daily, especially if you'll be spending time outdoors. Sun protection is a year-round essential for healthy skin.


  1. Exfoliate Wisely

Exfoliation is essential for removing dead skin cells, but be gentle with your skin in the winter. Use a mild exfoliator once a week to help your skin absorb moisturisers better. 


  1. Don't Overheat Indoors

While it's tempting to crank up the heat indoors, high temperatures can also dry out your skin. Keep your home at a comfortable and moderate temperature, and use a humidifier to add moisture back into the air.
