5 Winter Care Skincare Tips

Winter weather can easily irritate your skin.

Here are 5 Winter Care Tips to combat the causes of winter that impacts our skin.

1. Moisturize Frequently
Thick moisturizers containing Ceramides, Hyaluronic Acid, and Petrolatum will help retain and seal moisture within your skin. Choose thicker creams over lighter lotions — the thicker the moisturizer, the better. Our favourite face moisturiser ATS CERAMIDE PERFORMANCE DAY CREAM 50ML. For body, you can use any of our Q10 Body Butters from our selected fragrance ranges.

2. Limit Hot Showers
Winter weather brings the desire for long hot showers, but hot water will further dry out your skin. Limit showers to 15 minutes and use lukewarm water to avoid irritating your skin.

3. You Still Need Sunscreen!
Even though the sun’s UVB rays are not as strong in the winter, UVA rays are still present and can age you. Not to mention, the reflection of the sun’s rays through the clouds, you can still get serious sunburn even if it’s not sunny outside. Remember to wear SPF 30+ every morning and reapply if doing any outdoor winter activities.

4. Limit Alcohol Intake and Hydrate Well
Alcohol can dehydrate you. Make sure to limit these beverages and hydrate well with water throughout the day. Humidifiers at night can help regulate the moisture levels in your home and further combat dryness, promoting a dewy complexion.

5. Carry Lip Balm
Keep dry lips from getting chapped and sunburned during winter. The Watkins Menthol Camphor Ointment and Green Herbal Balm are great options.
