The Essential Guide To Autumn Skincare
It’s finally here. The most awaited season that everyone had been looking forward to after the scorching summer heat has finally arrived. Winters bring with them refreshing and energizing mornings, and crisp, mellow nights. One would say that winters are all about being sweat-free and not having to protect your skin from the blistering summer heat. However, what you need to realize is that during winters, your skin needs twice as much care and maintenance as it would in summers.
Read on for some of the best products that you can apply to keep your skin glowing and healthy.
Hydration is essential. In the winters, your skin gets dehydrated more quickly. So use a soap-free shower gel that is hydrating. Replace your fruity gels with a creamy body wash that moisturizes your skin.
Use an oil based scrub to maintain the moisture and hydration of your skin. These scrubs contain that extra amount of hydrating oils that makes up for the moisture that your skin loses during winters.
The importance of moisturizing can’t be overstated. You need to give your skin a healthy dose of moisture every day so that the dryness of the atmosphere does not harm your skin by making it dry and flaky. A good moisturizing lotion should be applied every day, preferably after a shower or bath, to allow for the skin to soak up the moisturizer and seal in the moisture.
Don’t discontinue sunscreen usage during the winters. In fact, applying sunscreen is a daily essential. A moisturizer with SPF 15 is adequate for you skin and can be reapplied through the day according to the need.
Do not ignore your feet, only because of the satisfaction that they will remain covered throughout the season. Your feet will be stuck inside your socks and boots for the major part of the winter, and to maintain their softness and look, you need to regularly exfoliate them. Use a good foot scrub and apply it after every shower.
Invest in a good hand cream that you can carry around in your purse and use for regular moisturizing. Hands tend to dry up after every wash, so you will need to apply a lotion every time you wash your hands.
Dry cuticles are a given with cold weather. Get cuticle oil and apply it over cracked skin to avoid the pain and irritation of dry skin. These oils are fairly simple to use. Just apply some oil to the affected area and rub it in your skin. Using cuticle oil at least a couple of times a week gives the best results.
Organized Skin Care Routine
Finally, we recommend organizing an expensive skin care schedule to maintain your skin regularly. Set days for when you want to apply facial masks, exfoliate and use cleansing oils. Moisturizing should be an everyday habit, so incorporate that into your daily routine.
