How to Look after your Skin in Winter

how to look after your skin in winter

Biting winds, heavy rain and constantly moving from the cold outdoors to the centrally-heated indoors can wreak havoc on our skin unlike anything else. The dry air will seep moisture from the skin, with the harsh winter elements making it so much worse. The best way to look after your skin in winter is to keep hydrated inside and out - which means keeping up the water intake as well upping your moisturiser game.

Use a Serum

Used once a day after cleansing and before moisturising, serums have smaller molecules that penetrate deep into the skin, delivering a high concentration of powerful ingredients. A good serum will target specific skincare concerns, giving your skin that extra boost before you moisturise.

Choose a Hard-Working Moisturiser

A hard-working face moisturiser should be your number one product for winter. Choose a slightly thicker cream than you're used to, opting for products that will lock in moisture all day. Oil-based solutions will retain moisture better than water-based ones, while natural ingredients tend to be more nourishing.


Moisturiser can't get through dead skin cells, so exfoliating in winter is a must. Choose a gentle face scrub to get rid of rough skin before moisturising, not forgetting the hands or body.

Look after your Hands

As well as your face, hands suffer the most in winter as they're the most likely to be exposed. Use hand scrubs and lotions to combat the effects of the cold, drying elements, choosing products that contain nourishing ingredients such as Shea butter and Vitamin A.
