Things to keep in mind for winters sin care routine

-

Skincare is a process which maintains the skin integrity, magnifies its appearance and reliefs skin conditions. It provides nutrition and hydration to skin. It comprises many practices. Practices such as cosmetics, botulinum, exfoliation, fillers, laser resurfacing, microdermabrasion, peels, retinol therapy etc lie under this. skincare is meant to be performed regularly to get rid of skin issues such as acne, dermatitis or dry skin issues.

Your skin needs to get cared for and  pampered more in winters. Winters dry out everything. The cold breeze takes aways all the moisture of the skin, leaving our skin with flakiness and stiffness . Therefore performing a proper skin care routine is essential. 

Your skin type 

While watching advertisements and getting attracted to them, we often forget that they might not be suitable for our skin type. We need to understand that not all products are for all skin types. And they are not going to work the same on everyone. For instance, a face wash which suits person A perfectly might dry out person B’s skin. 

Here is a list of broadly divided skin types :

  1. Oily skin:

 Oily skin is when oil glands produce a large amount of oil. Your skin lies in this type when you can feel oil on your face after a few hours of face wash. Large amount of oil is accumulated on your nose T-zone when you wake up in the morning. Oily skin results in acne, black and white heads.    

  1. Dry skin: 

It is when your skin feels itchy, flaky and rough. Moisturizer is completely absorbed within a few hours and you again feel the need for it. Dryness causes whiteness and a dull looking face. 

  1. Normal skin:

 It is when you neither feel the need of face wash twice a day nor the need for moisturization within every few hours.

  1. Combination skin: 

It is when your skin has both dry as well as oily areas. One has more oil producing glands at T-zone and less oil producing glands elsewhere. 

Is skincare important for Men as well?

Skincare has no gender. It is essential for everyone. Males also  have problems like acne, patchy skin and dark spots.Therefore, men who feel proud to say that they don’t do skin care should start taking care of their skin. Maybe today they have good skin but 5 years later it will be in a very bad situation. Taking care of things is essential for betterment. Hence, it is necessary for men as well to follow a proper grooming routine to maintain their charmness and to look absolutely handsome. 

Winter care! 

It doesn’t matter whether you go out often or you stay home most of the time. You all need to have a skincare routine to keep your skin clean, healthy and glowing. You can attain your basic skincare routine with the help of only four products, which are as follows:

Cleansing

First things first, cleaning your face is the most important and crucial step. Choose a cleanser or face wash which doesn’t make your skin feel tight. Don’t clean your face more than twice if you have oily skin or if you wear makeup. But in case, your skin type is normal or dry or if you avoid makeup don’t wash your face more than once in a day. 

Serum

Serums contain vitamins and other growth factors which replenish the skin.  The basic difference between serum and moisturizer is that moisturizer only keeps your skin hydrated while serums are made of anti -ageing, anti- acne substances. Moisturisers are used by whole while serums are for particular problems.

Moisturizer

Every skin needs to moisturize, even the oily skin. Moisturizers keep your skin hydrated. They don’t make your skin oily or greasy. People with oily skin should go for gel or lightweight moisturiser whereas people who have dry skin should always opt for cream based moisturizer. 

Sunscreen 

Never ever forget to apply sunscreen before heading outdoors. It doesn’t matter if it’s winter. Applying sunscreen is essential. Apply your sunscreen 15 minutes before while going out as it takes time for sunscreens to get activated. People with darker skin tones actually need more sun protection because hyperpigmentation is harder to correct. They should necessarily apply sunscreen everyday. 

Organic skin care products!

As we all know, the world is inclined towards organic products whether it’s food, cosmetics etc. Organic products are high in demand. The cosmetics industry launches new products every other day. And they all are tested and passed by dermatologists. They say it’s natural, organic and beneficial for the skin. But do you really understand the difference between natural and organic beauty products? The major difference is that the organic products are made up of the ingredients grown by organic farming while natural products are made of ingredients that are grown normally with the help of pesticides, chemical fertilizers etc .
