Winter Skin Care Routine Tips

A change in the season not only warrants a change in the wardrobe, but in the skin care routine as well. As soon as winter sets in, the skin starts feeling a little dry and when not attended to, becomes scaly and flaky. Indoor heating, low temperatures, and dry air affects the skin and makes it vulnerable to dehydration and peeling. This is why it is important to switch to a dedicated winter skin care routine. Here are some winter skin care tips to survive the cold winter months and maintain healthy, happy skin –

Change the cleanser – In summer, foaming cleansers are great, but in winters when the skin is dry switch to a creamy cleanser. In case, your skin is on the dry side, opt for creams with fatty acids and barrier-repairing ceramides that are good at preventing water loss. Remember, to preserve and maintain a youthful glow and soft skin, hydration is the key.

Try a facial oil – One of the essential parts of winter skin care routine is to invest in good quality facial oil. During the winters, mix a couple of drops of facial oil in your day cream to lock the moisture in the skin.

Exfoliate – To fight dullness and uneven pigmentation, it is very important to invest in a good exfoliator. Exfoliating helps shed dead cells and boosts the natural repair process, promoting the production of collagen. Remember to exfoliate gently, using natural and gentle exfoliators to avoid excessive dryness.

Moisturize – Moisturizing is an important part of any winter skin care routine. After your bath, pat the skin dry and apply a body lotion to protect the skin from moisture loss. Moisturizer help the skin retain moisture throughout the day. Use a lip balm to prevent drying and cracking of the lips.

Hi everyone! Korean skin care brand Innisfree, is now available online at Nykaa.com and the brand team sent me this lovely Christmas gift set. I received a hand cream set along with a capsule collection of their face masks. These can be purchased individually online. The hand creams retail for Rs 300 whereas the capsule masks (10 ml quantity) are priced at Rs 150 each. I haven’t had a chance to try the masks yet but I tried the hand creams and really liked them. They’re very moisturizing and smell pretty nice too. The peach variant is my favorite so far, I absolutely love the juicy, sweet fruity scent!

Face Massage Techniques for Healthy Skin

 

Hi everyone! Today I’ll be sharing a few techniques for face massage that you can include in your skin care routine. A face massage has amazing benefits for the skin. It boosts micro-circulation which means more oxygen and better delivery of nutrients to the skin. It can also help firm up sagging facial muscles and improve the elasticity of the skin. While regular facials at the parlor is a luxury that few of us can afford, its easy to do a facial or a simple massage at home on a weekly or fortnightly basis. Have a look at my face massage techniques video below to know more.

 

Face Massage Techniques

 

A few pointers to keep in mind :

  1. Always start with clean hands and a cleansed face.
  2. Use light pressure when working around the delicate eye area.
  3. Make sure to use a good quality cream/lotion/oil for your massage. Something which feels nourishing is good but if it contains nutritious ingredients that help add a glow to the skin, even better! My pick – Forest Essentials Soundarya Radiance CreamThis is a powerful combination of 24 Karat Gold Bhasma, effective herb infusions, unprocessed oils, pure cow’s ghee and nourishing roots; that are stored and simmered over a slow fire in copper vessels that impart their own potent properties to these.
  4. Use a floral face water or thermal spring water mist to aid the massage. The skin tends to absorb the cream after a while so its helpful to use a mist to add some slip to the skin.
  5. Avoid excessive rubbing on areas where you may have broken/irritated skin or active acne.
