Top skincare tips for dewy skin this winter

Everyone wants flawless, smooth skin be it any weather. However, it becomes a bit difficult during winters due to the harsh weather. Worry not, if you want to glow to from tip to toe even in winters, read on.

Save Your Skin

Bitter cold harms your skin and the hydrolipidic film in particular. It thins and can no longer function as your skin's first line of defense. So you don't want to add fuel to the fire. The first tip - avoid steaming hot baths or shower. Once out of the tub, immediately pat your skin dry so that it doesn't dehydrate. Don't overheat your bedroom and put a bowl of water on your radiator. Don't wear synthetic materials against your skin. Opt for natural fabrics.

Moisturize Your Skin

Even if you're having a skimpy clothes day, your skin still needs covering. So massage on a moisturizing lotion that's packed with fatty acids, lipids and vitamins to nourish and protect your skin. You can opt for body balms, rich creams and thick lotions. When applying, pay attention to stubborn areas such as your elbows and knees. If your skin completely absorbs your body cream, apply a second layer. Repeat morning and night. You'll be left with smooth, comfy, glowing skin.

Give It The Required Nourishment

Apply a hydrating, nourishing day cream that's suited to your skin type. And at night, smooth on a regenerating face cream to help your dry skin to recover. If you do not like a cream, you can use a Micro-Essence that is lighter in weight. Use the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence that penetrates 10 layers deep into your skin and gives you a glowing, youthful and clear skin. And don't forget to slather on a moisturizing, nourishing face mask once or twice a week. Make sure you only use products that are soothing and gentle. So, if you have fragile skin, go easy on the face scrubs. And don't forget to nourish your hands and lips the moment they feel a teensy bit dry.

Increase Body Hydration

Hydrate your skin from the inside by drinking gallons of water or fruit/herbal teas. And aim to eat a healthy diet. Pile your plate with fruits and veg that are packed with vitamin C, alongside oily fish and eggs. A tablespoon of vegetable oil in your dressings and snacking on almonds, nuts and hazelnuts will give you a good dose of healthy fats. They're not the naughty ones that tip our scales.

Even if you spend hours in salons or use the best products to achieve glowing skin, it will never be complete unless you hydrate your skin and replenish the water loss that the outside weather does to your skin. Just follow these skincare tips to nourish your skin and get a dewy skin this winter.
