How to Prepare for A Winter Skincare Routine

Winter weather can play havoc on your skin – dryness, chapped lips and dull skin are just a few aspects you might encounter during the colder months. So, how can you effectively transition your bathroom cabinet for the winter months? Here are a few handy tips on how to prepare for a winter skincare routine.

Use your current products

Transitioning to a winter skincare routine doesn’t mean you need to buy a whole new skincare stash. In fact, you only really need to make a couple of changes. First, you need to ensure that you’re using a gentle cleanser – one that won’t strip the skin of its natural oils. Cleansers aimed at sensitive skin are a great option for all skin types as they will remove makeup, impurities and oil without being too harsh. For toner, use a calming, hydrating mist or liquid and follow with a hydrating serum.

Serum is highly effective as it penetrates the deeper layers of the skin. Even oily skin types can become dehydrated in winter – oiliness doesn’t mean your skin is hydrated. It actually means your skin could be lacking moisture so make sure you don’t skip on hydration.

Finally, use a good moisturiser. If you tend to suffer from dry skin all year round, use a nourishing moisturiser that will hydrate, smooth and soothe. Oily and combination skin types can use a lighter texture.

What to add

Using a facial oil can be highly effective in winter. This could be a pre-cleansing oil or a serum/oil or used in place of your regular moisturiser. Oils help to keep moisture locked in, alleviate dullness and dry patches, as well as soothe any irritation.

Finally, for lips, use a rich lip balm. This will aid soreness, chapping and dryness. You can re-apply throughout the day or use in the evening as an overnight treat.
