Essential Winter Skin Care Tips | Mathkar Blogs

Updated: Aug 23, 2021

Winter has its own charm. But have you ever realized the damage it could do to your skin? The cold air steals the natural moisture from your skin, leaving it dry and itchy. It can even cause severe dry skin, eczema, and psoriasis. That’s why you need to take extra care of it in winters.

10 tips for the Extra Winter Skin Care

1. Use Luke Warm Water

It is very tempting to go for hot showers in winter. But if you love your skin, avoid them. Instead, use lukewarm water to shower and wash your face. Hot showers dry your skin quickly, and if you do not moisturize it immediately, your skin can develop cracks. Once you have taken a lukewarm shower, apply a moisturizer that contains hyaluronic acid and ceramides. This will keep the moisture intact and prevent dryness.

2. Stay Hydrated

Be it inside your house or outside, the air is drier in winter. And as a result, water evaporates from your body easily. Hence, you need to keep your skin hydrated. This will certainly keep your skin happy.

3. Choose Skin Care Products Wisely

What kept your skin happy during summers can make it sad during winters. And that’s why you need to change your skin care products accordingly. The key to healthy and glowing winter skin is using mild skin care products. Choose cleansers that contain moisturizers to avoid stripping your skin of its natural oils. If you have acne or breakouts, use products containing ceramides, hyaluronic acid, hydration serums, and glycerin to help in repairing the moisture barrier of your skin.

Avoid masks and peels, astringent lotions, scrubs, and any product that contains alcohol as they make your skin dry during the winter.

4. Protect Your Skin

You need to protect your hair & skin from the cold wind if you are stepping out in winter. Do cover your hair or wear cap and do not forget your sunscreen lotion. The warm sun rays feel pleasant, but the UV rays can still damage your skin a lot.

5. Do Not Exfoliate Your Skin A Lot

Exfoliating the skin helps in getting rid of dead cells. You have to be careful during winters, because your skin barrier is already compromised due to the dry and cold weather. Exfoliating your skin once a week is fine – this helps in boosting skin regeneration and better product absorption.

6. Don’t Forget The Hands

The skin on your hands has fewer oil glands as compared to the skin on any other body part. That’s why moisture escapes from your hands quickly, making them prone to cracks and itchiness. Apply a moisturizer after shower & before going to bed.

7. Care For Your Feet

Choose glycerin-based creams and petroleum jelly to moisturize your feet. Also, make sure you exfoliate the skin on your feet occasionally so that it can absorb the moisturizer easily.

8. Follow A Daily Skin Care Routine

It doesn’t need to be elaborate. You can just follow these 4 step routine –

  • Cleanse your face

  • Apply toner

  • Moisturize

  • Sunscreen / Night Cream

9. Take Care Of Your Diet

Consume a lot of seasonal fruits and veggies. Berries are exceptional sources of vitamins and antioxidants that your skin needs to stay healthy during the cold weather. Strawberries, grapes, blueberries, raspberries, or cherries – pick anything you love. Also, if you think that you are missing out on the hydration part (limited water intake), you can cover that up with fruits, veggies, and other food items such as soups, salads, juices, and milk. In this way, your body will get the nutrients to keep the skin healthy.

10. Exercise

Exercise will pump up your heart rate, which in turn, pumps more blood to your organs and skin. During the winter, the oil and sweat glands in your body and the blood vessels constrict a bit. This makes it hard for your skin to keep itself healthy and glowing naturally, and that’s why it needs your help.
