A nip in the air in some parts of the country and harsh cold days in the others are here and it brings with it dry, dull and irritated skin. While we may love the idea of cozying up with a cup of hot chocolate on a cold winter day, the feeling of having dull and dry skin snaps us back to reality. A little extra effort and lots of moisturisation goes a long way in winters to keep your skin looking healthy and glowy. But, achieving that gorgeous, hydrated complexion can still be a task while the wind is chilly. So, the question is how does one achieve that juicy glow in the midst of these cold months? With a balance of some extra TLC for your skin and a few makeup tricks (approved by the Nykaa Army, you’re welcome), getting that glowy complexion you love shouldn’t be a problem. Read on to find out how you can get the glowy-est complexion this winter season.

Regular Exfoliation

Nykaa Naturals Tea Tree & Neem Face Scrub

best face scrub for glowing skin

Kora Organics Turmeric Brightening

The chilly weather causes skin to become dry and flaky, leaving behind a build up of dead skin cells on the surface resulting in your skin looking parched and a bit dull. Exfoliating your skin with a gentle face scrub or peel will help develop a healthier skin barrier.

Hydration Is Key

Hydrated skin is happy skin! Go all out on moisturise-boosting essentials during the winter months to give your skin that dewy glow you’ve been aiming for (don’t we all?). Incorporating hyaluronic acid serums or moisturisers in your routine will give your skin that extra boost.

Protect And Moisturise

Saving your skin from UV rays and other environmental aggressors is a must, whatever the season may be. For the winters, opt for sunscreens that work double duty by protecting and moisturising your skin all in one go.

Mist Refreshment

A few spritzes of a hydrating mist goes a long way in locking in the hydration and helping you stay refreshed from AM to PM. Pro tip: Before applying your moisturiser, spritz a little face mist to help the ingredients sink into your skin better.
