Benefits of Including Honey for Dry Skincare in Winter
Below are discussed several benefits of including honey in your dry skincare routine during winter:
- Moisturises Skin
- Fights Free Radicals
- Corrects Blemishes
This amber nectar is also bursting with fructose and glucose (around 80%), sugars that help our cells to harness water in the upper layers of our skin. Result: a well-moisturised, glowing complexion. Known for its nourishing properties, honey also helps heal the skin by boosting cell production and regeneration in the epidermis. Deeply nourishing and moisturising in nature, honey is perfect for dry skin treatment as it leaves us with radiant, baby-soft skin, even if winter has left it in a leathery mess. Those who have parched skin can derive maximum benefits from applying honey.
Honey contains high levels of flavonoids, making it a natural antioxidant that combats free radicals responsible for premature skin ageing. It also boosts the production of collagen and elastin, the connective tissues that keep our skin supple and toned, leaving us with plump features and dewy skin!
Hormonal changes, poor diet, excessive exposure to sun, pollution, and smoking can cause our skin to produce excess sebum that can clog up our pores. And clogged pores mean inflammation and spotty outbreaks. Thanks to its antiseptic, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties, honey is also perfect for cleansing combination and oily skin. It banishes blemishes and leaves our skin squeaky clean.
DIY Home Remedies
You can include honey in your dry skincare routine during winter in the following manner:
- Honey-Infused Face Packs
- Honey-Infused Face Scrubs
Honey is one of nature's best skincare ingredients, thanks to its rich, floral composition. It provides optimal benefits when used as face packs, sheet masks or as an ingredient in skincare products. It can be mixed with other ingredients such as eggs, yoghurt, aloe vera, and lemon, depending on our skin's needs.
Honey is perfect for parched skin, thanks to its nourishing, purifying, and moisturising action. It's also a superbly gentle face scrub ingredient that can be mixed with exfoliating powdered almonds or sugar to remove dead cells that cling to the surface of our skin. Finally, honey protects our pout when used in soothing DIY lip balms.
If you lack time to prepare DIY face masks, cleansers, or scrubs, you can still protect and hydrate your dry skin during winters, by following an effective dry skincare routine that includes an ingredient that is equally nourishing and hydrating like honey – hyaluronic acid.
Dry Skin Care Routine
For dry or dehydrated skin treatment during winter, you can trust Hyaluronic Acid-based products. Hyaluronic acid is a potent hydrator that helps to moisturise by holding water in your skin. It acts as a humectant that helps to draw moisture from the air and infuse it in your skin. As a result, you can prevent your skin from drying out even when the temperature drops. You can find Hyaluronic Acid-based products in the form of cleansers, day creams, serum, and sheet masks, and use these products for your dry skin care in winter.
- Day Cream:
- Sheet Mask:
Include a Hyaluronic Acid-infused gel-based hydrating cleanser in your dry skincare routine during winter. We recommend you choose the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Gel Cleanser as it gently cleanses the skin, hydrates it, and leaves behind a youthful radiance.
One of the tell-tale dehydrated skin symptoms is fine lines or premature ageing. Therefore, as dehydrated or dry skin treatment, rely on Hyaluronic Acid-based day cream. We recommend you choose the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Hyaluronic Acid Plumping Day Cream. This day cream optimally hydrates dry skin, helps reduce fine lines and reveals radiant skin during winter.
Including a face serum in your dry skincare routine can prove to be the best decision of your life. Face serums help to keep the moisture and nourishment level in dry skin intact for long hours and enhance the overall suppleness of the skin. We recommend you opt for L’Oréal Paris Revitalift 1.5 % Hyaluronic Acid Serum. This light-weight, non-sticky paraben-free face serum provides intense hydration and instant visible results that you can see after each use.
