Cold weather can leave your skin feeling dry, itchy and irritated. We’ve all experienced this and find ways to keep our skin moist and supple throughout—a bottle of moisturizer is all you need to get through dry weather. But, while moisturizing is a great way for your skin to stay hydrated, there are other simple ways to combat the dry winter skin that you might miss out on. Just a few changes in your daily routine and you are good to go!
Here are a few simple things to help your skin feel the best all winter long. Keep this in mind.
Skip the super-hot/long showers
Ladies, as much as a hot shower sounds and feels great on a cold day, it can cause immense harm to your skin. Hot water can steal your skin’s natural hydration, not what anyone wants at all. Plus, make sure to keep it short. All you need is about 10 minutes. That’s it!
Always keep a moisturizer handy!
Everytime you get a chance, make sure to moisturize, especially, after you’ve had a bath. Make it a point to incorporate a facial spa in your daily skincare routine— use moisturizing face masks and to repair cracked, flaky lips- a thick lip balm is all you need. Keep in mind to moisturise before you go to bed as well, just like in the morning.
Stock up on hydrating makeup
Flaky makeup during winter is common. How to avoid this? Replace drying powder makeup with creamy formulas that contain ceramide-like amino acids that improves long term moisturizing and protects the skin from environmental hazards. Try Bolly Prime Time CC Primer with Free Sheet Mask that offers deep hydration and acts like a perfect base for your makeup.

Keep your face clean
Simply avoid soaps, use a cleansing oil instead! In the winter, wash your face once at night to avoid drying out your skin. Use a gentle liquid cleanser that does not require rinsing to remove your makeup.
Sun, Rain or Winter—Apply Sunscreen
Even on bright winter days, your skin is still exposed to the sun’s harmful rays. So whether you just hop out for lunch or are travelling to work, it’s just as important to be applying sunscreen in the harsh winter weather as it is in the summer.
Take care of your skin this winter!
