The winter moonlight which casts its soft glow over the entire city, the crisp breeze that tingles your senses and the enchanting, quiet evenings as the chaos of the metro slows down — needless to say, that winters are magical! The time of the year when we slow down with nature to enjoy the chilly weather under the warmth of a blanket with a steaming cup of cocoa. While basking in this cosy weather brings us unparalleled joy, winter has a snag or two to it. The story of which your skin might already be depicting.
The lack of humidity in the atmosphere that accompanies winter doesn’t bode well for our skin. Expelling the very last morsel of moisture content, winter is bound to give rise to parched and flaky skin, much to our dismay. Therefore, the season calls for an altogether different head to toe regimen to ensure that we look and feel our best. To help us double down and reimagine the glorious wintertime for our hair, skin and body, we have the phenomenal ladies from the Nykaa Army sharing their winter wisdom (if you will). Word to the wise, whip out a notepad and take notes!
“Winter is a dreamy season, with the Christmas lights and everything red and green. It's definitely the season to be jolly. With all this comes the cold leaving your skin dry and flaky, you have to take extra care of your skin to get that perfect glow. My ride or die winter skin care product has to be the hyaluronic acid serum from The Ordinary. Hyaluronic acid that hydrates your skin deeply and is an essential for anyone who has dry skin! My second pick is the step right after serum which is a really good hydrating moisturiser. My go to moisturiser Laneige Water Bank Hyaluronic Cream, the glow it delivers is unreal. This duo is the key to getting Korean glass skin, thank me later. My last winter pick is the MCaffeine Choco Body Butter. This body butter will not only give you buttery skin, but make you smell like a walking hot chocolate. Who doesn’t want that?”
“ Winter is coming! So, you’ll surely find me drenching and drowning myself in hydrating skincare products that actually work and get the job done. Here are my top picks that ensure I look skintastic this holiday season too. Purified pores? Refreshed skin? Clearer complexion? You can find it all here! The Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser has mild-lathering properties and is devoid of any fragrance, making it super suitable for my sensitive skin. Next, I love soaking my skin with The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% full of magical ingredients backed up by science. Lastly, I love using the Nykaa SKINRX 5% Niacinamide Spot Correct Day Moisturiser to lock up all the magic!”
"The key to a happy winter season is keeping your skin happy and hydrated! I'm adding this Nivea Bestselling Complete Body Care Combo to my cart, it has everything I need in one combo. Next up, sunscreen is a non-negotiable item in my vanity, and I'm adding my go-to Neutrogena Ultrasheer SPF50+ PA+++ Face Sunscreen. Lastly, I'm adding the Anomaly Hydrating Shampoo for Dull & Dry Hair with Coconut Oil & Aloe Vera to treat dry hair during colder days."
“When I think of dewy, glow-y skin, I think Estee Lauder. It has been my secret for years. I have dry skin and the ANR range works wonders. I found my skin feeling more resilient, and the range is pretty excellent in terms of hydration and giving your skin a well-rested look.”
“ During summers my skin is very oily and in winters my skin gets dry and flaky. My go to essentials for winters are The Ordinary Peptide Serum + HA serum. I usually use it after using the Pixi Clarity Toner which keeps my skin super moisturised throughout the day. The winters make my skin look very dull so after the serums I use the Dot & Key Vitamin C Moisturiser to get that glow on and then lock it all in with the Innisfree Sunscreen.”
