A Hydrating Moisturiser


This one’s a no brainer. You need a moisturiser all year round. However, a face cream needs to be changed with the season too. While you need a water-based moisturiser in summer, you need to switch it up with a rich, non-greasy one for your winter skin. Pick one that’s is fused with super hydrating ingredients, and is lightweight and non-oily (your skin produces more oil naturally in winters) and lasts long, just like the Bare Body Essentials Moist Me Cream.

Face serum


Just moisturising your face isn’t enough, especially when it’s freezing cold outside ready to zap the little moisture left on your skin. You need an extra layer of moisture to keep your skin soft and nourished. Using a face serum before your face cream can help lock in moisture and keep your skin from drying out. It has active ingredients that hydrate your skin from within even in the coldest of temperatures. Get a face serum like Nourish Mantra Urban Rani Facial Serum that moisturises skin and creates a hydrating base.

If you have noticed your skin getting duller and drearier in winters, it is because the dry winter winds strip the glow off and leaves it looking less radiant. Plus, the build-up from pollution, excess oil and dirt makes your skin look even lifeless than ever. Include exfoliation in your daily skincare regime. You could try a gentle micro-peeling cream like the Pixi By Petra Hydrating Milky Peel that removes dead skin cells, oil, blackheads and whiteheads and brighten your skin, thanks to the natural cellulose in it.

Not just your face, the skin on your body needs pampering too in winters. Your arms, back and legs get dry and flaky in winters, courtesy cold winds and low humidity levels outsides. This can bring your beauty game seriously down and let’s face it, nobody wants that. Get a body lotion rich in hydrating ingredients that moisturises the winter struck skin and keeps it smooth. We suggest Perenne Cosmetics Hydrating Body Lotion that’s packed with Vitamin E, shea butter and hyaluronic acid, all super hydrating ingredients that turns your drab skin fab and smooth.
