When you think about it, winter is truly a stunning time for our skin.
There's the dry, harsh, cold wind outside. And the dry, very-direct heaters indoors. Not to mention the scorching hot showers - so much external stress! It’s no wonder we end up with flaky, red, inflamed skin.
This is where tweaking our skincare and makeup routines comes in clutch so we stay the plump, glowing angels that we are.
When thinking about our skin and how it reacts to changing seasons, it's important to remember this doesn’t just affect a certain skin type (dry skin gets drier, for example).
Dry skin lacks oil, so we might use products that are rich in ceramides, squalane and other natural oils to replenish the skin and strengthen the barrier.
But oily and combination skins can also become dehydrated (when the skin lacks water), so subbing in skin care containing humectants like hyaluronic acid, glycerine and urea can help the skin draw in moisture and hang onto it.
Now that we know winter skin affects us all *single tear rolling down*, let’s get into my winter makeup tips for dry or dehydrated skin.
