Why should you have a winter beauty routine? What’s so important about having a beauty routine that you stick to and can fall back on whenever? Depending on where you are, it might be winter or it might be summer. If it’s summer then you need my Summer Face Routine. For those whose weather is currently winter, let’s talk about why it’s important to have a winter beauty routine.
Now many people think beauty routines are complicated or not there thing but trust me your skin will thank you. I was like you once, soap and water was as far a beauty routine as I went. After I started blogging I got introduced to so many brands of products that I knew of or never heard of. I quickly learnt products with Salicylic Acid where not my friends as they made my nose peel. Products with Hyaluronic acid or ginseng where my best friends.
With that knowledge came the understanding of what works for my oily skin. I also came to appreciate that oily skin is actually good type of skin if well looked after. Don’t hate your oily skin embrace it, the released oils actually protect your skin. But they can also clog your pores if you don’t have a good routine.
Why should you have a winter routine?
Just like summer, changes in the weather can affect our skin greatly. In the harsh of winter, your skin is battered so much by the elements causing it to:
- Lose its moisture
- Lose natural moisturising oils (oily face)
- Causes it to be dry, itchy and tight
- Can cause breakouts
These are just some of the effects winter has on your skin so it’s important to have a good winter beauty routine. Now having a routine doesn’t mean you have to completely replacing your daily products. You might have to if the products are not heavy enough to protect the skin from losing all its moisture. As mentioned above I use products with Hyaluronic Acid because it’s naturally found in the body. Though over time we lose it so I replace it with products made with Hyaluronic Acid as the active ingredient.
