As the winter wind sweeps in, it’s time to cozy up with more than just blankets and hot chocolate, your skincare routine deserves a seasonal makeover too. The cold weather can wreak havoc on your skin leaving it parched flaky and in need of some extra TLC. But fret not, because we’ve got you covered. We’ve curated the ultimate morning skincare essentials to keep you protected and glowing through the season.

 

When you think morning skincare, think protection. Additionally, during winters, remember to build and maintain your skin barrier and to keep hydration at the core of every step of your routine.


Hydrating cleanser: Hydrating cleansers as opposed to foaming cleansers help cleanse your face of all impurities without stripping your skin off its natural oils which helps maintain the health of your skin barrier. Gently massage the cleanser in circular motions for 30-40 seconds to remove any impurities accumulated overnight, leaving your skin refreshed and ready for the day ahead.

 

Hydration boost with a toner: Follow up with a hydrating toner to replenish moisture and balance the skin’s pH levels. Look for toners containing glycerin or hyaluronic acid, which help attract and retain moisture, providing an instant boost of hydration. Gently pat it into the skin to ensure maximum absorption with tugging or pulling.


Antioxidant serums: Packed with potent ingredients, these serums combat free radical damage, brighten dull skin, and have other benefits like enhancing collagen production and regulating excessive sebum production. Use an antioxidant according to your skin type and dab it into the skin until its absorbed.


Moisturise: Lock in moisture with a rich emollient moisturizer tailored to your skin type. During winter, opt for a thicker consistency to create a protective barrier against harsh environmental elements. Ingredients like ceramides, shea butter and squalene work wonders in nourishing and repairing the skin’s moisture barrier, keeping it soft and supple throughout
the day.


Hydrating sunscreen: Even on cloudy days UV rays penetrate through the clouds and can damage the skin. Pick a broad-spectrum sunscreen that also provides hydration and use a generate amount to get adequate protection.


With this simple, yet effective winter morning skincare routine, you can go about your day knowing that your skin is well protected and nourished. Remember to stay consistent with your regimen and listen to your skin’s needs as the weather fluctuates. Embrace the chill and let your skin be your winter accessory of choice.
