Should You Change Your Skin-Care Routine In The Winter?

Throughout the year, it's important to stay mindful of skin protection. And while summer introduces its own challenges (i.e., sunburn), winter brings a different set of obstacles for maintaining healthy-looking skin - namely dryness and windburn!

Not only does your skin need to be moisturised during the colder months, but you should also focus on cleaning and protecting it from damage due to dry and windy air. Below are 5 Tips on how to take care of your skin during winter.

1. Deep cleanse

Moisturisers are heavier during winter, so you don’t want to block pores, therefore exfoliating and deep cleansing are critical to maintaining healthy glowing skin. We recommend regular facials, ultrasonic skin scrubbing, and gentle exfoliation cleansers. You may also want to try Minus417 Micro Luffa Cleanser, and experience the unique and amazing luffa bean sensation as this vegan formula gently exfoliates and cleanses.

2. Tone Your Skin

If you don't usually use a facial toner, think about adding one to your routine. Facial toners are an easy way to balance the skin, strengthen the skin's barrier, and provide extra hydration, which is a must during colder months. Try Minus 417 Mineral Infusion Hydrating Toner and experience the renewing sensation as this vegan formula helps regenerate skin at the cellular level as it tightens the pores, provides amazing antioxidants that neutralise free radicals and rebalances the skin’s pH while softening the skin for a more youthful appearance.

3. Apply Extra Barrier

In the colder seasons, you want to increase hydration and protection against dryness, by adding more moisture, you can do this by applying a layer of an emollient such as organic Argan oil, or olive oil before applying moisturiser, or try Minus417 Multi Active Facial Serum and bring back your skin’s moisture and balance with this vegan serum, enriched with anti-aging ingredients for all-day hydration.

4. Moisturise

As your skin needs a little extra loving when the cold winds are blowing, protect it against dryness with an intensely moisturising cream, this will make your complexion glow through all those chilly nights. We recommend swapping out the light and breezy lotion for richer, thicker creams, such as Minus417 Radiant Intense Day Cream, and experience the deep, moisturising sensation of this nourishing vegan skin cream as it penetrates the outer layers and rejuvenates from within. Or you can make a homemade remedy by melting ½ cup of organic coconut oil with 1 teaspoon of vitamin E and a few drops of lavender essential oil. When combine, store in a jar and when cooled, you have your winter moisturiser.

5. Add masks that will nourish and hydrate your skin.

We recommend hydration masks rather than clay masks during winter as they can dry out your skin. A perfect at-home remedy ‘Yogurt-Honey-Oatmeal face mask’. This mask can give your skin that much-needed boost. Yogurt's natural cleanser and moisturiser properties are perfect for glowing, radiant skin. Honey is great because it draws moisture from the air to hydrate dry patches of skin while also gently exfoliating with its cleansing property! Oats have a soothing effect on irritated or sensitive areas by providing anti-inflammatory relief as well as relieving itching and redness. Blend 1 tablespoon of oats into a powder, add one tablespoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of Yogurt, mix into a paste, apply, and relax for 20 minutes before washing off.
