If the winter weather is creating chaos with your look, don’t lose faith.  With the right tips and tricks, you can get your skin ready for winter, and your makeup can survive whatever any season throws at it.

You can get dry skin patches that can build up on your skin in the winter.  The patches will make your skin look dull even if you put on a lot of makeup.  To get your skin gleaming again, it’s best to gently exfoliate at least once a week, follow that with a face serum, and end with an extra-moisturizing cream.  And of course make sure to drink lots of water to hydrate from the inside.

Do you need to change your skincare routine for the winter season?

Regarding your skincare routine, make sure to wash your face well.  If your face feels tight and dry from the cold weather, you may need to change your cleanser.  Gently rub a moisturizing formula that is milky or creamy into your skin and then remove with a cotton pad or a tissue.  A humidifier is another great tool for fighting the dryness.

And never ever forget your sunblock.  The sun’s rays are strong throughout the year.  And especially when you’re in the snow you must have sunscreen as part of your skincare routine.  Snow has sun-reflecting properties, so it’s just as important to wear sunscreen in the winter as in the summer.
