Winter Skincare

Snuggled up under a blanket with your comfies on? Ditto! Hibernating this winter with hot chocolate, log fires and Netflix has been dreamy hasn’t it. But not necessarily for our skin.

The mixture of central heating and cold wind can take its toll so here are my top changes to my routine for winter:

Serums

As you know I have been using serums in my skincare regime for the past 6 months and I have noticed a big difference in my skins appearance. Normally in the winter if my skin felt dry I would just keep putting on moisturiser on but with the serums it helps lock in the moisture for longer.

Exfoliation

I used to be concerned about exfoliating in winter as I thought this would dry my skin out more however it has done the exact opposite. It has reinvigorated my skin and stopped it feeling tight and dry. I find myself having to exfoliate 3 times a week.

Water

We know drinking water is imperative for our skin but I also how we use water on our skin is too. I used to love scorching hot showers in the winter, but this winter ,mainly sparked by a move to a new house where the water doesn’t get as hot, made me realise that wasn’t good for my skin. I now have warm showers and my skin is less itchy, red and dry.

Moisturising

This is obviously a key step in my skincare regime however I try and make sure I do this immediately after a shower or washing my face. Delaying moisturising even for a short time just increases your risk of dry skin.

Foot masks

Our feet hardly get a glimpse of day light in the winter but we still need to look after them. I have been using moisturising sock boots to keep them nourished and soft. You can pick them up for only a couple of pounds and the affects last a good week.

Balm tissues

When battling the sniffles I always try and use balm tissues, the difference to normal tissues is very noticeable when you nose doesn’t turn as red.

Are there any skincare routines you change up for Winter?

Until next time breath in and relax
