Stuff that you are doing wrong with your dry skin during winters
Winter is exciting apart from the unpleasant chilli winds indoors or outside, that makes your skin rough, red, and itchy. Even though it proves beneficial to turn to a good moisturizer at the first sign of fall, the colder environment and indoor heat may already have left its mark. Thank goodness, there's still time to take a normal routine seriously to keep your skin hydrated and radiant.
Organise your home
The denser the air is, the drier the skin would be. To tackle this situation, keep your room warm and humid. Install a humidifier in your room to control the amount of water in air. Adjust your humidifier to low or moderate temperature setting to avoid extra dryness in the air.
Switch to a healthy diet
There’s a direct connection between your gut and immune. Switch to a rich diet that includes walnuts, avocado. Do not overdo on caffeine or alcohol. Drink water! Yes, drinking water is very important. None of was like to drink water in winters because of the frequent trip to the loo, but water will keep your gut hydrated and happy which in turn will make your skin happy and nourished even in winters.
Protect your skin
No matter how often you moisturise your skin or use an expensive serum your dry skin will remain dry up till you exfoliate. Exfoliation doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll have to scrape down all the oil from your face, but a light exfoliation will do no harm. Grab a gentle scrub that has mild glycolic or lactic acid, or you can completely opt for an all-natural product. Use TNW Oat Cleanse that has the goodness of natural ingredients such as Oats, Sandalwood, Almond, Orange peels and many more.
Soak on an Antioxidant Serum
Serum is an exception to the winter rule. Be it summer or winter, serum always makes up to the list. An antioxidant serum is an all seasoner if it is alcohol free. Regardless of the weather outside, the ski is attacked by toxins causing premature fine lines, sunspots. Apply TNW Vitamin C serum as the base in the morning before coating on heavier products. Don’t forget the TNW Sun Defence SPF 50 Creme, it will keep your skin covered even in chilly weather.
Shift to a Moisturizing cream
We often tend to underestimate the power of a moisturiser. A thick moisturiser helps prevent the skin layer which is easily broken down during the winter. Try your hands on TNW BB Cream with SPF 30.
Avoid harsh cleansing
Toss your regular cleanser with a mild one to keep your skin hydrated and soft. A gentle cleanser like TNW Oat Cleanse is a great choice that will not scrape the natural oils from the skin.
As the last step, apply a hefty amount of moisturiser and dab a good lip balm like TNW Beetroot Lip Balm before getting in the sheets.
Other things to consider
- Limit your bathing time
- Do not use hot water, instead use lukewarm water to preserve your natural oils
- Apply bath oil or virgin cold pressed oils
- To avoid the greasiness of petroleum jelly or moisturiser, rub it in your hand before dabbing it on to your face
- Avoid products that has alcohol in it
