Have travelling plans to a cold and dry place? Worried about your skin? We got you! Travelling to a harsh cold climate region can leave your skin in less-than-ideal texture. To keep healthy skin while travelling to such a place is the real challenge. Cold, dry air can leave your skin itchy and irritated. Combat dry winter skin with these expert tips for retaining your skin’s natural moisture on the go.

Hydration – Hydrating your skin with adequate water is the most crucial factor in any skin care regimen. Hydration traps the moisture to create a film that helps to detoxify. Drinking a lot of water will help your skin Glow and Healthy.

Moisturise your skin– Don’t forget to moisturise daily. Switch your regular products with water or gel based ones. Use hypoallergenic and non comedogenic products to avoid clogging of pores. This is important no matter the season. Go for lighter moisturisers or gel based ones. You can also use aloe vera gel to keep your skin fresh. (quick tip – apply it on damp skin to seal in the hydration). When it comes to people who suffer from dry skin, make-up on dry skin comes up as flaky and cluttered. Never forget to apply a suitable day cream with calming ingredients like Green tea, Chamomile and Aloe Vera to keep the moisture locked for a long time. It replenishes the skin with antioxidants. After moisturisation comes sunscreen.

Always apply sunscreen- No matter summers or winters, applying sunscreen protects your skin from the harm that the winter brings with it. Sunscreen is the holy grail of skin care. Whether you are indoors or outdoors, the UVA and UVB rays & radiation will damage your skin. For monsoons, you can switch to gel or water based sunscreen for a fresher feel instead of lotion or oil based sunscreens. Make sure you reapply sunscreen every 2-3 hours or use it at atleast thrice a day. An essential along with sunscreen is essential oil.

Use face oil along with primer – Make sure you use face oil with primer before make-up application for intense skin hydration and long lasting makeup. This is the secret behind flawless skin for your candid shots.

Use Face mist to keep your skin hydrated – For that glowing skin, hydration is important and a face mist helps you get that glow. Keep a small one in your purse at all times so you can refresh yourself anytime you need.

Every skin has different needs and so it’s important to remember that what may work for someone else, may not work for you. Getting into a skin care regime is just as important as eating the right food or wearing the right clothing to ensure that it’s healthy and radiant. The first step to doing this is to know your skin – not just your skin type but where your skin is at right now and what it currently needs to look and feel its best.

The process of finding that perfect skin regime can be tough and daunting at times, keeping in mind so many steps involved. You don’t need a complex 7-step routine to keep your skin beautiful and healthy, picking fewer but the right products will serve your skin better. Keep your skin routine basic and effective, don’t get swayed and overwhelmed by buzzwords and trends. Skin minimalism is the way ahead, so make sure you don’t over-complicate it and always remember, stay confident in your skin no matter what!

Enjoy your winters with ever happy and glowing skin.
