Why and How to Upgrade Your Winter Skincare Routine | Science of Good Skin

Upgrade Winter Skincare Routine

With Winter in full swing now, it’s super important to make sure you’re taking care of your skin accordingly. Winter’s conditions are completely different for your skin compared to the warmer months and often. Our recent post explores 5 ways to protect your skin this Winter. Today, we go through a few more things you can do specifically with your skincare routine.

First of all, why does the Winter weather affect your skin differently? The air is a lot more drying in Winter. On top of this, heating further dries out the skin. This makes it harder for the skin to stay moisturised which means you have to help it out. Winter also reduces your immunity. To help it out, using antioxidant ingredients can reverse the effects of any free radicals.

The first thing to add to your skincare routine is an oil. Oils are not only moisturising for your skin, they can be extremely high in antioxidants as well. Best of both worlds! Some of the best oils you can use on your skin are almond oil and clove oil. You can even mix them together to get both the benefits.

If you’ve never heard of hyaluronic acid before, it might sound a little bit scary but it’s actually one of the best steps you can add to your skincare routine. Hyaluronic acid has the ability to hold large amounts of moisture. It can also make whatever you put of top of it such as serums or moisturisers more effective. Hyaluronic acid also has incredible anti-aging properties, making your fine lines less visible in the dehydrating Winter.

Pamper nights are always the best on a Winter night and one of the best thing to add to your night is a face mask! You can make your own DIY mask full of natural ingredients or you can head out to buy some of your own. Your skin will love you for using a face mask once a week.

With less time at the beach in the Winter, adding a tanning lotion to your pamper night might also be appealing. The best tanning lotion you can use for your skin is Bahama Brown! It’s packed with 26 superfoods that nourish your skin, allowing it develop its own tan. Since it’s not a paint, you won’t have to worry about transfers or stains ruining your relaxing pamper night.
