As the weather unfolds from being warm to cool, it’s not only our way of living, clothes, or eating habits but also the skin that changes from season to season. It’s that time of the year again when cold weather and dry skin become inevitable. Winters can be tough especially if you have sensitive skin and body. As we sleep during the night, our skin can heal itself from the day’s damage by increasing blood flow, increasing collagen, cellular rejuvenation, and more.
Hence one must pay proper attention to their winter nighttime routine to boost the skin. To revive the skincare routine, you should include steps like cleansing, moisturizing and regular exfoliation, and face care accessories & tools. Let’s give a minute to read what things in a night skincare regime can make your skin healthy in winter.
Step-By-Step Night Skincare Routine in Winter Season
Begin with Double Cleansing
The first step of the winter skincare routine is double cleansing. In layman’s language, it means cleaning the face twice. The first time you clean with a water-based cleanser to break down the makeup and sebum from the skin and make it easier to take it off. This is followed by a second time cleansing which is washing the face using water and liquid soap. During the winter season, our skin becomes dry & rough and throughout the day, a lot of pollutants build up on the skin’s surface. And once you come back home, it is supposed to be cleaned not once but twice for clear and rejuvenating skin. For the best results, you can use facial cleanser machine for deep cleaning of the face.
Exfoliating the Skin
Another step to add to your skincare routine is regular exfoliating. The main benefits of exfoliating skin during the winter season helps to remove dead and flaky buildup accumulated on the chapped skin. Once you are done with double cleansing your skin using face cleansing pads and tools, gently exfoliate the face for the sheer glow and helping with brightening the face and removing the dead skin cells. However, one thing to remember while doing exfoliation during the winter season is to be gentle and ensure doing skincare on alternative days.
Drink Enough Water
We tend to think that summer is the season when we should be concerned about our water intake due to warmer temperatures. However, it is just as vital to maintaining adequate hydration during those winter days when the temperature drops by. During the winter season, lack of water intake can increase the risk of dehydration, and hence it is equally important to drink enough water even during the winter season and keep you hydrated |
Give your Skin Proper Moisturizing
As the weather starts changing and the weather drops, hands and legs (read soles) start getting cracked and rough. Have you ever wondered what you need to be prepared for winter? It’s none other than cracked skin that leads to skin peeling off due to lack of moisture. During this harsh weather condition, applying moisturizer acts as an emollient that keeps the skin nourished and healthy. Be sure to choose a formula that is enriched with natural and nourishing ingredients. To retain moisture in the skin, ensure applying cream on the whole legs and hands.
Pay Attention to Chapped Lips
While it may seem to a lot of people that dry and chapped lips are not a big deal, lack of humidity during the winter season can cause lips to get dried. Thus, to prepare your lips from getting cold and dry, keep a lip balm handy in your hoodie pockets. When you feel like your lips are getting chapped or dry, you can apply the lip balm along and apply whenever in need. Also, it may sound tempting but avoid biting your lips to prevent any bruises.
While we may think that our uniform skincare regime is everything you need but when it comes to healthy skin, less is more. Don’t let the fear of seasonal change overpower you. Follow this guide to find out how to keep your skin happy by effortlessly upgrading the winter skincare routine.
