We adore the winter season for the warmth and comfort it brings to our homes. Isn’t it delightful to savor hot beverages while just nestled in a room with your favorite blanket and the heater on? Despite the enjoyable retreats of winter, there’s a notable issue that arises with the season – the challenge of skin dryness, calling for special attention to winter skincare. As temperatures drop, our skin requires extra attention and winter body care products to combat the drying effects of harsh winds and indoor heating. Whether you have oily, dry, combination, or sensitive skin, this step-by-step guide will help you create the ultimate winter skincare routine to keep your complexion glowing and healthy throughout the chilly months.
A Step-by-Step Guide for Winter Skincare:
Step 1: Gentle Cleansing:
Begin your winter skincare routine with a gentle cleanser that effectively removes impurities without stripping your skin of its natural oils. Opt for a hydrating cleanser that replenishes moisture while cleansing. Look for ingredients like Salicylic Acid or glycerin to keep your skin’s hydration levels balanced.
We recommend using Glow Bright Face Cleansing Milk, enriched with ayurvedic ingredients such as turmeric, honey, aloe vera, and more. It cleanses skin by removing dirt & impurities, maintaining skin PH balance. Also, it can be used as a makeup remover.
Step 2: Exfoliation (1-2 times a week)
While we understand the importance of moisturizing in winter, achieving smooth skin often requires gentle exfoliation. Concerns about bruising may deter some from scrubbing in colder months. However, the right choice of scrub eliminates such worries. We highly advocate using Ayurvedic scrubs, such as Glamour World Ayurvedic’s Glow Fairness Scrub herbal options, devoid of plastic microbeads found in chemical scrubs. It provides a gentle exfoliating effect, crucial not just for cleanliness but also for facilitating the skin’s natural renewal process. Effective exfoliation removes dry, dead skin cells, promoting the regeneration of fresh, vibrant ones.
Step 3: Hydrating Toner
Toner remains a crucial skincare element regardless of the season, serving as an enhanced cleansing step. It effectively removes dirt and residues from deep within pores, acting as an upgraded post-cleansing ritual. Toners with ingredients like green tea, rose water, or aloe vera can soothe and hydrate your skin most effectively.
Tip: If your skin is looking dry this winter, use the Glamour World Ayurvedic Rose Toner to have that smooth texture and glowing radiance.
Step 4: Serum
In winter, your skin needs an extra layer of protection. Incorporate a hydrating serum enriched with ingredients such as niacinamide, natural ingredients, or antioxidants. Glamour World Ayurvedic Glow Brightening Hydrating Serum helps to retain moisture, boost collagen production, brighten the skin, unclog pores, and treat fine lines and wrinkles. Serums are your winter shields, protecting you from the dullness and dehydration that the season may bring.
Step 5: Moisturiser
The entire discussion on the care of the face in winter revolves around hydration and moisturisation. So understandably, moisturising your skin is a non-negotiable step in your winter skincare routine. Choose a rich, hydrating moisturiser or body lotion that protects your skin barrier by locking in moisture and preventing it from escaping into the cold, dry air. It’s crucial to moisturise your skin twice or thrice a day during the colder months.
We recommend using Super Fair Cold Cream, suitable for normal to dry skin, enriched with the goodness of natural ingredients turmeric, papaya, Chandan, and more.
Step 6: Sunscreen
Complete your routine for the day with a broad-spectrum sunscreen, be it summer or winter. Let us repeat it! Using sunscreen is a non-negotiable step of a skincare routine. Always follow your winter face cream with sunscreen. Look for a minimum SPF of 30 or more, and apply it on your skin at least 15-30 min before stepping out.
As per the thumb rule, you should use at least 2 finger lengths of sunscreen covering your ears, face, and neck. Gently massage it on your skin evenly until it is completely absorbed.
Step 7: Overnight Treatment with Night Cream
For an extra boost of hydration, consider adding an overnight treatment to your routine. Use Glow Night Cream to provide your skin with deep nourishment while you sleep. It helps the skin restore elasticity and treats fine lines and wrinkles.
