If you don't know by now that you have to transition your skincare seasonally, are you even alive?! Here are 7 winter skin care tips to keep your skin hydrated and glowing all season.

1. Upgrade Your Cleanser

Skin tends to dry out and get distressed during winter, so it's advisable to switch to a hydrating, gentle cleanser for your face. Cleanse twice at night to remove every trace of makeup, dirt, and other pore-clogging nasties.

2. Hydrate!

If you struggle to drink enough water during colder seasons, try warm water with lemon to maintain hydration. Switch to a creamy moisturizer to cocoon your face from colder weather and parching indoor heating.

Use an indulgent all-over body moisturizer to keep your skin silky soft.

3. Buff

Exfoliate at least once a week to buff away dead skin, dirt, and debris to purge pores for a brighter, glowy complexion.

Don't forget to scrub your whole body to buff away dead skin cells and dirt to reveal smoother, velvety skin.

4. Humidify

Humidifiers pump skin-saving moisture into the air, otherwise diminished by central heating systems.

5. Indulge Thirsty Skin

Apply a hydrating facemask once a week to soothe dry, red, irritated skin and replenish hydration levels. Finish your evening facial routine with a facial oil to lock in moisture.

6. Pamper Time!

Facials are a relaxing way to deep clean pores. Make sure you visit a renowned facialist who offers bespoke facials tailored to your skin type. Most full-body massages include hydrating body oils or wraps, in case you needed an excuse to indulge in a complete spa experience.

7. Repair

Winter offers the perfect camouflage for those of you who are avid sun-seekers to repair sun damage via facial peels.
