Winter can be an especially troublesome time for those with acne-prone, sensitive or oily skin. You may want to spend a little extra care and make a few adjustments to keep your skin looking and feeling its best. If you’ve noticed a change in your skin’s condition, here are some tips on how to look after your skin in winter, keeping it in top-notch condition.
Using a really hydrating moisturiser in your skincare regime is essential to banishing that horrible dry winter skin feeling. Using one such as our Face Base Face Balm gives your skin the hydration it needs, without any greasiness. It’s also ideal for use before applying make-up, acting as a mattifying base, which is perfect if your skin is prone to oiliness throughout the day.
Continuing on from moisturiser, using an oil enriched serum like our Fix Me! Repairing Serum is especially valuable to your skin during the chillier months. Our serum is enriched with argan oil for naturally hydrating results. It may seem a bit strange to apply oil to oily skin – but don’t worry, it can help enormously when it comes to hydrating your skin and also rebalancing your skin’s oil production.
Treating your skin to an organic Balancing Toner is an effective way to return your skin to its optimal pH and soothe out any irritation and redness. Oats (Avena Sativa) are not just great for breakfast, but are a natural ingredient fantastic at calming and alleviating redness, which is why we use (and love) them in our toner.
During the winter you may feel as though your skin appears more dull and grey – much like the weather. Using an organic cleanser such as our Take It Away! Gel Cleanser means your skin is properly looked after, with natural goodness and no harsh ingredients. Our cleanser is infused with sandalwood and vitamin C, both of which are marvellously hydrating and will leave your skin feeling renewed every single day.
Diet and Hydration
Aside from skincare, making sure that you are getting enough fruit and vegetables during the winter is important as they contain vital skin and health boosting vitamins and antioxidants. Try these three vegetables for glowing, healthy skin. Don’t forget to stay hydrated too, and drink at least 1.2 litres of water a day (about 6-8 glasses). It will do wonders for your skin.
