Winter Wonderland: Our winter skincare guide tailored just for you!
Hey there, beautiful! Winter may be a magical time filled with cosy sweaters, hot cocoa, and snuggling under the doona, but it can also wreak havoc on your skin. From dryness to irritation, your skin is bound to face some challenges during these cold months. Don’t worry, though – we’ve got you covered! With the help of Murad skincare products and some simple tips, you can keep your skin looking radiant and healthy all winter long. So, grab a cup of hot chocolate, snuggle up, and let’s dive into our winter skincare guide tailored just for you!
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!
When it comes to winter skincare, moisturizing is your best friend. The cold, dry air can zap your skin’s moisture, leaving it parched and prone to flakiness. Opt for a heavier, moisturizer like Murad’s Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture. This luxurious cream creates a protective barrier on your skin, locking in hydration. Don’t forget to moisturize your lips as well – Murad’s Soothing Skin and Lip Care can work wonders in preventing chapped, cracked lips.
Sunscreen isn’t just for summer
Believe it or not, the sun can still cause damage to your skin in the winter months. That’s right – even when it’s cloudy, UV rays can still reach your skin. Apply Murad’s City Skin Age Defence Broad Spectrum SPF 15 to all exposed areas of your skin. If you’re hitting the slopes or playing in the snow, choose an SPF30 and reapply every two hours to keep your skin protected.
Keep it cool
We know how tempting it is to take a long, hot shower after spending time in the cold outdoors. However, hot water can strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry and irritated. Instead, opt for lukewarm water when cleansing your face with Murad’s AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser. Your skin will thank you!
Gentle exfoliation is key
Exfoliating in winter is important to slough off dead skin cells and reveal a fresh, glowing complexion. However, you don’t want to overdo it – harsh exfoliation can further irritate dry skin. Stick to gentle exfoliating products like Murad’s Replenishing Multi-Acid Peel and limit your exfoliation sessions to once or twice a week. Your skin will feel smooth, and your favourite products will be able to penetrate more effectively.
Hydrate from the inside out
We all know that drinking water is crucial for overall health, but it’s also vital for maintaining a healthy complexion. Staying hydrated helps to flush out toxins and keeps your skin cells plump and happy. Aim for at least eight glasses of water a day, and don’t be afraid to mix things up with herbal teas or fruit-infused water!
Protect your hands and feet
Your hands and feet need love too! Winter can be especially harsh on these areas, so invest in a thick hand cream and a nourishing foot cream. Apply these products regularly, especially after washing your hands or taking a shower. If you head to the snow, don’t forget to wear gloves and cosy socks to keep your hands and feet protected from the elements.
Winter doesn’t have to mean dull, dry skin. With the right Murad skincare routine and some extra TLC, your skin can continue to glow throughout the colder months. Remember to moisturize, protect your skin from the sun, and stay hydrated. Embrace the winter wonder
