Top 10 Skincare Products That Will Give You A Radiant Skin This Winter

By Shivani, 16 Dec 2016

We girls just love winters for the fact that we get to dress up in cool leather boots & jackets and look all hot and classy. And there is nothing in this world better than sipping on some hot chocolate on a cold winter evening tucked in warm cozy blankets. Surely winters give us the best times of our lives and the icing on the cake: the Christmas and New Year celebrations. But apart from all the amazing things winter season has to offer, there is one thing we dislike winters for, which sure is, the skincare woes it brings along. The cold winds and the not-so-sunny days that take a toll on our skin make it dry and flaky. Keeping in mind how important it is to take care of the skin in winters, we need to make sure that we are well-equipped with just the right products for our skin.

Here is a list of 10 must-have skincare products that will make your skin soft, supple and radiant this winter.

1 Face and Body Scrub

Having a good face & body scrub is must as it helps to get rid of the dead skin cells that might be caused by the drying of the skin due to the cold weather. It also helps to get that smooth glowing skin which is why scrubs are extremely good for winter since the skin gets really dry.

Our Picks : Himalaya Gentle Exfoliating Face Scrub

The Body Shop British Rose Body Scrub

2. A Moisturising Soap/Shower Gel

Since our skincare routine starts with bathing, we need to make sure that we use a moisturising soap or shower gel so that the skin is moisturised right during the bathing process. Such soaps are designed keeping in mind the natural pH of the skin and contain moisturising milk to help maintain that pH of the skin.

Our Pick : Nivea Creme Soft Shower Cream

3. Heavy Duty Moisturisers

Moisturisers play a great role in hydrating the skin and protecting it from the drying weather. So it is indeed important to use a heavy duty moisturiser that stays all day long and keeps the skin healthy and glowing. Moisturisers seep into the skin's layers and lock in the moisture so that skin stays supple and hydrated throughout the day.

Our Pick : Nivea Nourishing Body Milk With Almond Oil

4. Lip Balm

The skin on our lips is very thin and does not contain any oil glands and thus they tend to dry up very fast. It is, thus, very important to use a lip balm especially in winter to keep them soft and supple. It is even better if the lip balm contains SPF. 

What a lip balm does is basically create a layer of moisture on the lips to prevent it from leaving the lips and thus, keeping them moisturised.

Our Pick : Maybelline Baby lips

5. Face Mists

In winter, the only areas of our body that are most exposed to the cold weather is the face and the hands. So, for the face it is good to carry a face mist for instant hydration during the day. Face mists come in the form of sprays and are quick and easy to use. They basically provide a quick hydration by creating an easy-to-absorb layer of moisture over the skin.

Our Pick : Vichy Thermal Spa Water

6. Face Serums

Most women think that the right time to use face serums is during the 30s and 40s. However, that is not true. Face serums help to repair the skin and keep it plump and taut. Plus, only a small quantity of these goes a long way. They help to maintain that youthful glow.

Face serums are best when used after cleansing and toning & just before moisturiser. Some face serums may take a while to absorb before the mosturiser so it is best to let it be absorbed first and then apply a moisturiser.

Our Pick : Lakme Youth Infinity Firming Serum

7. Day Cream/ Night Cream

Using a good day and night-time moisturiser keeps your skin looking great at all times. A day cream does the job of an SPF & moisturiser and is specially designed for the outdoors when the skin is exposed to UV rays, dust and pollution. It's a well-known fact that skin cells repair themselves overnight. A night cream, therefore, is designed for the night time when the skin repairs and replenishes.

You could use the day creams as part of your morning skincare routine and the night cream for the night time skincare routine, though there are people who like to use the same moisturiser both for day & night.

Our Pick : Olay Natural White Day & Night Moisturiser 

8. Eye Creams

The skin around the eyes is very thin and needs special care in the hot as well as the cold season.  Eye creams help to avoid puffy eyes, dark circles and dehydrated skin especially when used during the night.

Eye creams are best when used at night since night is the time when maximum repair of the skin takes place.

Our Pick : Kaya Lighten & Smooth Undereye Gel

9. Hand & Nail Cream

Hands tend to get really dry in winter since they are the second most exposed body part in winter apart from the face and perhaps, we all hate dry hands. So, it is a good enough reason to use a good moisturising hand cream and keep it handy all the time.

Make sure to use a night cream before stepping out & also just before going to bed.

Our Pick: Body Shop Almond Hand and Nail Cream 

10. SunBlock

Last but not the least, a good sun block is a must for winter skin care regimen. Most of the times, people dont feel the need of applying a sunblock in winters but not applying it won't only give you sun burns but would also result in freckles, rashes and premature ageing. So whenever you step out of the house, ensure that you have applied a generous amount of sunblock on the exposed areas of your body.

Our pick: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunblock

These are the basic products that can help you in taking care of your skin in winter. Hope they would help you in various ways to get that glowing winter skin!!
