How To Look After Your Skin in The Winter

Winter skincare is essential, especially as it gets far easier to get dry skin. For those who are prone to getting eczema, it is even more important to keep on top of your routines. For both your face and your body, here are our top tips on how to look after your skin in the winter months.

Moisturise Regularly

Making sure your skin is regularly moisturised is a key element to preventing dry skin, since it will help to lock in moisture. We would recommend doing this straight after a shower since once you dry off from a shower, the moisture can leave your body.

There is an abundance of moisturisers out there so it may be confusing to know what to use. We recommend researching which is best for your skin type or asking us in the salon, as a thick moisturiser may not suit acne-prone skin.

Prevent Using Hot Water

As lovely as it can be to have a nice hot shower (especially in the wintertime!), it can actually strip away all the natural oils from your skin, so it would be best to use lukewarm water. Keep those showers short as well, anything under 10 minutes is ideal.

Always Drink Plenty of Water

As obvious as it may seem, be sure to always drink plenty of water throughout the day. Staying hydrated is key to maintaining healthy skin. Drinking water also has other benefits aside from just healthy skin, as it is essential for our diet, so be sure to keep on top of your water.

How to look after your skin


When it comes to dead skin, exfoliating will help to remove this, keeping your skin fresh and smooth. Remember to be gentle when you do this, however, as you don’t want to irritate your skin. Irritated skin can lead to further dry skin!

Gentle Cleanser

Alongside exfoliating, we recommend having a 2-step cleansing routine. First, use an oil-based cleanser to remove makeup and sunscreen, and then go in with a water-based cleanser. This will help with removing dirt and makeup without removing those precious natural oils you produce.
