Seasonal changes bring changes in fashion and clothes, so why not in our skincare routine? Winter is the time when our skin requires extra care and attention. 

Our skin may become too dry with temperature changes, and dry skin can also bring along challenges like cracking lips, flaking, and skin dryness. As a result, the skin needs nourishment so that it can better retain moisture. To keep its moisture, our skin needs nourishment during the winter.

In order to do that, it pays to identify what type of skin you have. There are four types: normal, combination, oily, and dry. The best way to determine your skin type is to examine how your skin feels, looks, and reacts. As skin types vary, you must find the kind of lotion, cream or moisturiser that will work best for you. Oily skin won’t benefit from a lotion that’s designed to care for dry skin, and vice versa.

Therefore, you should understand your skin type and select the appropriate moisturizing products. If you have dry skin, you might try using essential oils. Not only will these oils replenish lost moisture, but they will also fill in any pits or blemishes that your skin may have suffered.

In the winter, harsh cold winds can dry out our lips and leave them chapped, and hiding them under our masks can do more harm than we realize. It is essential to use a good lip balm if you want smooth, supple lips.
During the winter, it is important to stay hydrated as well. It is also recommended that you drink 8-12 glasses of water every day to nourish and hydrate your skin.

In addition to being visually appealing, the fruits and vegetables available during the season contain nutrients that the body requires. Eating foods high in Omega 3, Vitamin A, C, and E can also help to keep your skin healthy and moisturised.

Sun bathing feels wonderful during the winter, but the direct rays of the sun on your skin can cause damage, especially in the winter. The UV rays of the sun can dry out skin and rob it of its natural oils. The problem gets worse in winter because natural oil production is low anyway. If you want to enjoy the warmth of the sun on a chilly winter morning, apply sunscreen or wear a light scarf to protect your face and arms.
