Ladies it is time to put all your beauty and skincare resolutions into action as Winter is not round the corner, it’s actually here! Worried about dry/patchy skin this chilly season? Fret not! We have the perfect solution(s). Slay winter skincare and beauty concerns by prepping your beauty routines to deal with the harsh weather. Read on and find out which products deserve a YAY and which ones are a complete NAY! P.S. It’s never too late to SWAP!
Base makeup
We know how much you love your BB and CC Creams. But tuck away your favorite formula deep inside your vanity kit and ace your base by opting for a tinted moisturizer. Look for formulations that contain Oils, Squalane or Hyaluronic Acid. A BB cream tends to mattify, making your skin look dry, whereas a tinted moisturizer will give just the right amount of hydration your skin needs coupled with hints of glowing tint. Go dewy or go home!
We all know this one! Matte, sultry lips look divine. Matte lip colors will most definitely dry and crease your pretty pout, especially when you apply lipstick, making your lips look unhealthy. Go ahead and dig into your beauty stash, ‘cos it is time to get those moisturizing lipsticks and pigmented lip balms out!
Face wash
Gel formulated facewashes are the BEST. Yes, we know and love the squeaky clean, refreshed feel of gel washes. Sadly though, your favorite gel cleanser will render your skin dry and patchy in the colder months. Now is the perfect time to invest in an awesome cream cleanser! A cream-based cleanser can help balance your skin, as it doesn’t overcompensate by producing more oil.
Face Mist
We understand the importance of incorporating a toner in your skincare routine. But as the months get colder, limit the usage of a toner to the bare minimum. Opt instead for a fabulous face mist post your daily cleansing routine. A face mist will not only rejuvenate your skin, but also provide total hydration and the best part; you can use it over makeup as well for an instant freshen-me-up!
A moisturizing cream (body and face) is an essential in winter months. But, what if we told you to move over to including essential oils in your regime instead of a cream? Here is what will happen: Your body will quickly absorb every last trace of the oil, delivering instant and COMPLETE hydration that will leave your skin feeling warm and supple all day and night! What are you waiting for, make the switch already!
