Winter Skincare Tips

With the cooler weather upon us give your skin the extra attention it needs to avoid dry skin, simply by following these 7 Winter Skincare Tips!

winter skincare tips

1. Shower using warm water instead of very hot water and try to limit your showers to 5 or 10 minutes (if possible!)

2. After you’ve finished in the shower pat yourself dry with a towel as opposed to rubbing the towel over your skin

3. To keep your skin moisturised and reduce water loss through the outer layer of skin (the epidermis) apply moisturiser as soon as your dry to lock in your skins natural moisture

4. Remember to wear gloves outside if you get dry or red patches of skin on your hands

5.  Use a gentle cleanser when washing your face to allow your skin to retain the thin oil layer it naturally produces to protect your skin. This usually means opting for a cream or oil cleanser as opposed to a foaming cleanser as these are gentler

6. Use a moisturiser to nourish your skin that contains natural oils which allow it to be absorbed into the skin and past the epidermis which is mostly made up of dead skin cells

7. Make sure to keep your moisturiser with you in your handbag (among the millions of other handbag essentials!) so you can reapply during the day if needed

Looking after your skin in winter

Did you know that when it comes to taking care of your skin, the most important skincare product is a moisturiser? This is because moisturisers are designed to penetrate your skin and provide vitamins and nutrients to where they are needed most. It is also the product which is on your skin for the longest amount of time and is tasked with protecting your skin from environmental factors that can lead to dry skin or premature ageing as you go about your day.

The Beautico Rosehip & Chia Moisturiser is specifically formulated for women who are passionate about health and beauty and who want to take better care of their skin and and help prevent dry skin.

  • Provides an even base for makeup & has a matte finish
  • Made with Certified Organic plant oils and natural botanic extracts

Taking care of your skin after your mid 20’s

Because our skin’s natural collagen production starts to decrease from our mid 20’s it’s important to start stimulating collagen production and taking better care of our skin.

Luckily for us to get the benefits of healthy and youthful skin we don’t need to use ingredients we can’t pronounce when these skin-loving vitamins are already found in nature:

skincare ingredient camelliaVitamin C helps skin cells make collagen which leads to plump skin – it’s the magic wand for youthful skin

Vitamin E helps to nourish skin and protect it from damage by free radicals – it’s the protector of your skin

Vitamin A promotes the functioning of healthy skin cells – it’s the fixer up vitamin for skin issues

Skin Nutrition

If you love taking care of your skin you’ll find it interesting to know that our skin is an organ (our largest organ in fact!) and it can absorb what is put onto it through our skincare products.

“You only have to look at the way nicotine patches work to realise the skin is a direct route into our blood stream” Dr Libby

We’re lucky that in today’s world, there is so much research out there on the effects of different skincare ingredients. So it makes it easier to choose ingredients that work without the harmful effects.

What women are saying:

I absolutely LOVE this product, I have used a load of different products over the years but this one has by far been one of the best. I have really sensitive skin and it has just reacted so well to this delicious product, which also smells great. I also love that it has no nasties, so I know I am getting the best quality product!

This product is just magical. It’s quick and easy to apply, and takes no time at all to dry, meaning I don’t have to wait around before I can apply my next layer (such as my foundation). It feels so soft and smooth on the skin, but doesn’t leave my face looking shiny. It’s a fantastic product, and I highly recommend!

Larissa, July 17
