Decoding Winter Skincare Routine: From Flaky to Fantastic
Winters are up and there you go, pulling your jackets and comforters to stay cozy all the time. But wait, what about your skin? Didn't think much? Your skin is the one that gets affected pretty quickly by the cold air.
Worry not, we've got you covered. Move your eyes to these last-minute reads that will save your winters. And, could we also tell you about a nice winter skincare routine?
Well, why not? Don't you ever keep this hesitation in your head, coz we just read your mind! Ready to shout out to all your skin needs this winter? Awesome, let's do it.
Why winters can be hard?
Winter's icy grip doesn't just look like movie actors dancing on beats, in the snow (biting temperatures). It's actually tough.
Winters smash your skin with bitter winds that can leave it dry, flaky, and irritated. Forget about the glow, your skin loses its basic moisture when exposed to cold air- that's the primary reason for dryness. All this cold season, it's hard for your skin cells to come up with new ones, at a fast pace. This is why your skin turns rough, lacks lustre, and surrenders to dullness.
A compromised barrier makes your skin feel irritated and itchy when you apply products or just have a walk, out in winter. That's sensitivity! Plus, getting up from those warm blankets is such a task. What if you got up, to do your winter skincare routine, all wrong? Nightmare - is the word! Well, we won't let that bad luck happen to touch you.
How to gear up?
Some people sum up their winter skincare routine with just a moisturiser. Seriously? That's so unfair to your skin! It needs the utmost attention and care in this season of the year. Let's pick you a good-to-go winter skincare routine and some of the best skincare products for winter that can act & adapt according to your skin needs.
Swap your Cleanser: Cleansing your face is never about removing all the oil that your skin has- you must leave the essential ones, intact. So, get a gentle cleanser that does some good cleaning and ditch those harsh, stripping cleansers that repel your skin from its natural oils. If your skin's a dry one, then you can try Bayla's Raspberry, Liquorice, and Hyaluronic Acid-packed Face Wash. It washes away all the dirt from your skin, leaving your skin clean with plenty of hydration.
Hydration is a Holy Grail: If you're making up your mind to target dryness, then aim to grab the moisture as much as possible. Try opting for formulas that have ceramides or hyaluronic acid which can help your skin retain moisture for longer hours. Bayla's Avo-Barrier Strengthening Moisturiser is packed with three essential ceramides- Rice Extract, Avocado Extract, and Sodium Hyaluronate. It replenishes your skin's protective barriers and keeps your skin close to the right moisture! Hello soft & supple skin!
Don't forget the SPF: You think the sun's hiding and you can roam freely? Not really! Those pesky UV rays can still sneak through the clouds and do damage to your skin. Apply sunscreen every single day, without getting fooled over by the silly tricks of the weather. If you want a two-in-one deal in sunscreen, then you can get Bayla's Avo-Good Day Sunscreen SPF 35+ with Niacinamide. It's a hybrid-broad spec sunscreen that blends and feels seamless. It does both jobs well- protecting your skin from the sun and nourishing your skin from within. Now that's a steal!
- Get the Right Nutrients: This frosty winter calls out some tasty fruits on your plate. Do we even need to tell, that how fresh fruits and green veggies can help you get results on your skin in the most organic way? They're packed with so much- vitamins, essential minerals, and antioxidants that align with their goodness to give you healthy-looking skin. Get your winter-ready glow from nature in the form of Apples, Grapes, Berries, Oranges, Spinach, Carrots, Beetroots, and more.
