1. Limit shower time
This is the main skincare tip for winter!
When you’re cold, your first instinct is to turn the shower heat up as far as it’ll go and bask until the hot water runs out! But this dream shower could damage your skin! One of the causes of dry skin is hot baths and showers. What can you do? Shorten your shower time to 10min in lukewarm water and avoid using excessively hot water on your body. Make sure that you wash your hands and face with cold water as it is more effective in removing germs.
2. Switch up your shampoo
Cold and dry season may cause an itchy scalp. It is one of the main causes of dandruff. And nobody likes dandruff! If you are using any shampoo to remove oil from your scalp and make your hair dry, it is time to switch with a more moisturizing and non chemicals shampoo .

5. Moisturise as always!
Moisturizing is compulsory after shower to maintain a healthy skin. Cream or lotion are better in humid climates. Do not forget your hands, keep them moisturized too! Applying hand cream each time after washing them will keep your hand soft and smooth skin and will avoid cracks.
6. Don’t skip sunscreen!
Just because the sun won’t be out so much during winter days, it doesn’t mean you should stop applying your daily sunscreen! According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, “snow reflects 80% of the sun’s UV light,” doubling harmful exposure and increasing the risk of damage to your skin. Remember to always apply a moisturizing, broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher to all exposed areas of your body.
7. Don’t forget your lip!
Your face is protected with sunscreen so how about your lips? They may suffer during this cold weather! Winter wind can dry out your lip faster than any other season and leave them cracking and peeling. Opt for a natueal lip balm to keep your lips smooth and moisturized.

9. Wear glove
In addition to applying hand cream, you will need to wear gloves to warm your hands and prevent your skin from cracking and drying. Gloves protect your hand from the negative effect of cold and can make your body warm.
10. Find the best foot cream
Because your toes are hidden away from the world during this winter season, doesn’t mean they don’t deserve care as your hand! Always apply foot cream after shower and before bed can prevent your feet’s skin from cracking and rough.
