9 Simple Skincare Swaps To Save Winter Skin

1. Use A mild Cleanser

Choose a mild, moisturizing cleanser that doesn't deplete skin's natural oils. Find formulations with hyaluronic acid or glycerin to preserve moisture.

2. Use A Richer Moisturizer

Replace your lightweight moisturizer with a richer, more emollient one in winter. To deeply moisturize and protect, try creams or balms with shea butter, ceramides, or squalane.

3.  Add A Facial Oil

Incorporate a nourishing face oil into your routine. Argan, jojoba, and rosehip oils strengthen moisture bonds. Apply it after or blend a few drops with your moisturizer.

4. Hydrating Masks

To rehydrate your skin, use hydrating masks once or twice a week. Look for masks with aloe vera, honey, or hyaluronic acid to deeply hydrate and relieve dry skin.

5. Exfoliate Gently

Replace aggressive exfoliants with softer ones. Use chemical exfoliants containing AHAs or BHAs to eliminate dead skin cells without irritation.

6. SPF All Year Round

 Use sunscreen in winter. Snow reflects sunlight, so UV rays can still damage skin. Use an SPF 30 broad-spectrum sunscreen daily.

7. Avoid Hot Water

Swap hot showers or baths for lukewarm water. Hot water can strip your skin of natural oils, exacerbating dryness. Also, limit shower time to prevent further dehydration.

8. Stay Hydrated

 Hydrate your skin internally by drinking plenty of water. Winter dryness makes hydration essential for healthy skin.

9. Protect Your Hands And Lips

To avoid dry, cracked hands, use a rich hand cream daily. Use a decent lip balm with shea butter or beeswax to nourish your lips.
