Tips for changing your morning and evening skin routine during winter

With winter around, your regular skin routine might not be as effective as it used to be. And you can blame the climate for that.
With the cold, dry weather, your skin loses its ability to keep the necessary moisture that it needs, which results in the dry, brittle feeling on your hands and face, for example. Because of this, your skin care routine must go through some changes to keep helping and maintaining your skin’s health.
To maintain your skin hydrated and healthy so as to beat the dryness that winter brings, we at the Aanya give you some tips to change both your morning and evening skin routines so you can stay looking glowing and beautiful:

For your morning routine:

When using a face wash, make sure to use a non-foaming and cream based one, or an oil cleanser that will keep your skin moisturized during the winter. Make sure the face wash says that it’s meant for hydration and that it’s not gel based. If it includes ingredients such as glycerine, hyaluronic acid, and ceramides, they will help bind water to your skin and keep it hydrated.
Applying a vitamin C serum will help the elasticity of the skin, stimulate collagen synthesis, and boost the skin’s immune system while helping it get hydrated and protected from external elements.
With this brittle, dry climate, moisturizing is key to keeping skin hydrated. Apply a heavy-duty moisturizer that won’t cause you to break out, contains the same ingredients mentioned with the face wash, and has extra SPF protection.

For your evening routine:

Remove your makeup
coconut oil
You must always remember to do this, or else your skin will be absorbing the bacteria, debris, and oil that has been built up during the entire day. It can also prevent your skin from absorbing nutrients from the serums and moisturizers you are using. So, use a makeup remover wipe, a micellar wash, or natural oils like coconut or olive which will take off your makeup and nourish your skin in the meantime.
Use the same face wash you use in the morning. This way, the water-binding ingredients in it will absorb the night-time moisturizer you apply so you can wake up with glowing, supple skin in the morning.
Do this only two times a week using a gentle exfoliator that has glycolic acid. This will help remove the dead skin cells, dirt, debris, etc., and give your skin a smooth and even tone, leaving a healthy, glowing look on your face.
Since it’s at night that your skin goes through an intense healing process in regenerating itself, your skin will lose a lot of moisture while you sleep. Because of this, use a heavy moisturizer that contains hyaluronic acid and retinol to boost collagen production and epidermal cell renewal, while deeply hydrating skin and helping it retain water better.

A few more tips:

Keep yourself hydrated. You might not feel as thirsty as you do during summer, but with the dry winter air, your skin becomes heavily dehydrated. Try to drink even more water than you usually do to prevent that and keep everything functioning properly.

Apply lip balm constantly every day and use a lip exfoliator a few times a week to remove any dead skin. Your lips tend to crack a lot with the cold and the excess dehydration from the climate, so they also need a little love and tender care.
Try to avoid using acne medication with salicylic or glycolic acids. These dry out the skin around the pimples and cause it to flake and peel. Instead, dab a little tea tree oil on your zits before going to bed as a substitute for traditional acne medication.
Incorporating these bits of advice into your daily skin care routine will help keep your skin healthy and ready to survive winter. Remember that skin changes just like the seasons and so does its needs. You must be prepared to take care of it as per the climate’s effect and then you can keep looking healthy and beautiful during the cold winter season.
