Winter Skincare Essentials

Winter Skincare Essentials

We are smack-bang in the middle of Winter and you’re probably feeling the effects that the harsh, cold weather is having on your skin. If you already suffer from dry skin, you’re definitely going to need a little extra TLC to make it through to spring. Not sure where to start? We’re here to help! Although everybody's skin is different, there are a few key basics that will help get you through the colder months. Here are the top 5 ultimate Winter skincare essentials.  

Lip Balm  

If you don’t already keep lip balm in your pocket 24/7, you’re about to have your life changed. There’s nothing worse than chapped, dry lips that split and bleed as soon as you step outside. Make sure you get yourself a good quality lip balm, as cheap and low-grade ingredients can leave your lips feeling sticky, rather than moisturised. We recommend Moisturising Lip Balm by Goat. This formula also incorporates sunscreen, so your lips won’t be damaged from harsh sun exposure!   

Whatever option you might choose, keep it with you wherever you go and you won’t have to deal with sore and cracked lips ever again.  

Sunscreen  

“Sunscreen? We don’t need sunscreen in Winter!” Sorry to break it to you, but yes, you absolutely need sunscreen in the Winter. Many people make the mistake of not wearing any just because it looks gloomy outside. However, the sun rays can still reach you even if it’s not direct 24/7. Plus, just because it’s not sunny in the morning doesn’t mean it’s going to stay like that all day! Not only will this help your skin stay moisturised, but you’re already one step closer to preventing wrinkles and fine lines. Don’t skip the SPF!  

Moisturiser  

Keeping your skin moisturised is the key to surviving Winter. With the cold harsh winds, your skin can easily dry out and become itchy. There’s nothing worse than trying to apply makeup to patchy, dry skin. Even if you’re skin leans towards the oily side, there are many moisturisers that are catered to your skin type. The skin should always be hydrated, so make sure you’re moisturising and drinking plenty of water!  

Add in an Oil  

If you’ve never added an oil into your skincare routine, it can sound a little bit scary. Why put oil on your skin? Won’t it clog pores and make my skin even oilier? Not true! Adding an oil into your regime can help lock in hydration and strengthen your skin barriers. A great place to start is Rosehip Oil. Use this once a day, ideally in your evening routine, to help keep your skin hydrated and prevent it from losing any moisture you've already given it.   

Don’t Overheat  

It’s easy to jump in the shower and turn the heat on full-blast on a freezing cold winters day. However, although this might feel good, it could actually be harming your skin. If you’re trying to warm yourself up, opt for blankets. Heaters and hot water can be just as damaging as cold winds. The skin can tighten up, dry out and become more irritated than it was before.  

Snuggle up, moisturise your skin, don’t skip the sunscreen or oil and keep your lip balm in your pocket at all times! These are the best tips that will have you marching through Winter like a pro.
