4 Skin and Facial Care Tips for the Winter

How have you been taking care of your skin lately? With more than a month to go, it is important to prepare your skin and prevent it from dryness, irritation and itchiness. If you have been keen on following a skin care routine, this is the time to take it up one notch.

Face Wash

Cleansing still remains to be an important part of your beauty regimen. However, this time, use an oil-based formula or balm for a gentle yet moisturizing way to cleanse your face. This will also continue to hydrate your face even after you have finished rinsing it. Conversely, if you have blemishes on your face, try cleansing oil that will not remove the moisture from your skin. You can also use a thick creamy moisturizer during the day right after washing your face. At night time, do not forget to apply a rich night cream to nourish your skin as you sleep.



Aside from facial cleansing and applying moisturizers, you can also add wearing a sheet mask to your beauty regimen. This will keep your skin hydrated in the morning and fresh-looking. It can also be used for controlling treatments and to relax your facial skin.

Lip Care

When it’s cold, lips can suffer and get dry if not taken care of. Since they do not have the oil glands, they are prone to getting dry, especially when licked often. Use lip balms that are heavier and more emollient formulas will help repair in preventing your lips from cracking. A lip balm will serve as a barrier to keep your lips hydrated.


Sun Protection

Not because its winter, you need not keep yourself from sun exposure. Even if the weather is cold, the sun still sends ultraviolet rays and can have a toll on your skin. Protecting your skin from the sun is important and should be done on a daily basis. What you can do is to buy a moisturizer that has SPF so your skin gets protected and moisturized at the same time.
