A Winter Skincare Routine for Dry Skin

tips for dry skin

In Winter months, it’s important that you adapt your skincare routine in order to address the different skin concerns that arise as a result of the drop in temperature. Now is the ideal time to start prepping your skin and perfect your Winter skincare routine with these five tips for dry skin. 

What Causes Dry Skin?

Chilled air, low humidity and going between the icy outdoors to balmy central heating can significantly dehydrate your skin. When the centigrade drops, your skin reacts by narrowing the blood vessels to protect the body and lock in warmth. Unfortunately, this natural process also reduces sebaceous gland secretion, which is what causes skin to dry out. But don’t fear, you can restore your skin back to full hydration for a dewy, radiant complexion with these cool weather beauty tips. 

Five Winter Skincare Tips For Dry Skin

1. Swap Your Light Moisturiser For A Richer Cream 

One of the easiest steps to tackle dehydration is to switch up your moisturiser for a thicker, richer cream. We suggest opting for products with moisture-binding humectants (such as hyaluronic acid) which draw water from deeper layers of the epidermis. This has a softening effect and will keep your skin looking plump, firm and dewy. 

Try the Intensive Hydralifting Cream. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, natural polysaccharide and Arabian myrrh, it provides sustained hydration and creates a smooth, more lifted complexion.

2. Add A Facial Oil To Your Winter Skincare Routine

For extra hydration, incorporate a facial oil into your skincare regimen. This will help to repair your skin, and protect it from free radical damage and external aggressors. 

The Miracle Facial Oil is the perfect indulgence. Its lightweight formula replenishes like a rich cream yet absorbs instantly like a serum. Blending precious oils, it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

3. Don’t Forget About Your Body

Dry skin doesn’t just affect your complexion, it affects your body tooInvest in a rich body lotion to replenish dehydrated skin in the cooler months. 

Omorovicza’s Body Cream is rich and nourishing, blending apricot kernel oil, plum almond oil and rice germ oil to hydrate and improve the appearance of the skin. It also strengthens the skin’s natural barrier, protecting it from daily environmental aggressors. 

4. Exfoliate All Over 

Once a week, incorporate exfoliation into your skincare routine to gently buff away dryness and reveal a fresh, glowing, and healthy complexion 

The Gold Sugar Scrub will smooth and refine skin from neck-to-toe, while the Refining Facial Polisher will brighten a dull, lacklustre complexion.  

5. Condition Your Lips

Delicate and fragile, the skin on your lips is thinner than on the rest of your body. Your lips also have fewer oil glands and don’t produce melanin (the pigment that protects your skin from UV rays) which means that they have little natural protection from the sun and harsh weather conditionsAdding a lip balm to your Winter skincare routine is essential for keeping lips nourished and healthy 

The Perfecting Lip Balm harnesses the properties of shea butter, eucalyptus oil and hyaluronic spheres to leave lips feeling fuller, softer and smoother. 

Follow these tips for dry skin and you’ll be flaunting healthy, hydrated skin all Winter.
