Cleanser: It is an important part of winter skin care routine. Choose cleanser according to your skin type. For oily skin types, choose oil-free and gentle cleanser. On the other hand, if your skin needs more cleansing than that, you need to use deep cleansing mask.
For cleansing purpose your face needs to be washed with mild cleanser that is not overly oily. There are varieties of facial cleanser available in the market containing different ingredients and can be bought easily. Some cleanser contains sea clay which helps in retaining the natural moisture of your face while removing the excess oil from it. Other good cleansers for winter are loofah, body wash, soap, etc.
Cleansing pad: This is an additional part of your winter skin care routine. Using cleansing pad not only removes dirt but also removes excess of oils from your face. A clean and clear pad removes the dust, grime, and oil which accumulate in your face during the day. Cleaning pads are available at most beauty clinics and pharmacies.
Eye Cream: Cold weather doesn’t only make your face dry but also cause wrinkles on your eyes. To reduce these problems, apply eye cream that contains peptides. Peptides work like steroids to revitalize your skin. They also improve circulation, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, and soften the skin around your eyes. If you find it difficult to find an eye cream suitable for winter, you can use serum along with peptides to solve your eye problem.
Topical Face Moisturizer: Cold weather also makes your skin drier than before. Winter facial recovery oil can help you regain your skin’s moisture. Make sure you buy a good and suitable product to avoid any adverse reaction while using it. Applying a good amount of facial recovery oil twice per day makes you feel relaxed and rejuvenated. To get a better result, use winter skin care routine combined with moisturizer and peptides.
Sunscreen: Protect your skin from the harmful ultra-violet rays of the sun. Winter sunscreen helps you defend your skin from the harsh winter conditions. Choose sunscreen products suiting your needs and avoid alcohol-based sunscreens. Alcohol based sunscreens have lots of side effects such as drying up of the skin, itching, burning and uneven skin color. So choose alcohol-free sunscreen to protect your skin during winter.
Facial Care: Although you have to pay more attention to your body part that receives the maximum dryness and heat during the winter, but still it is important for you to take care of your facial skin. Summer can cause our skin to lose its natural tone and become dull due to the drying up of oil glands and sebaceous glands. Winter causes our glands to produce more sebum resulting in dry and flaky facial skin. Regular facials not only moisturize your skin but also cleans your face, removing the impurities and dusts accumulated during the day. Regular facials help you in maintaining your winter skin regimen.
