Winter is coming. The sun will not shine that bright, days will be shorter and the cold will soon start taking a toll over your skin.
Though fall isn’t the coldest, but the offset of summers definitely need an equivalent change in your daily skin care routine.
Here is what you need to do.
1. Start with exfoliation
Exfoliation is the process of removing the dead skin cells from the topmost layer of the skin. Here are some of the reasons why exfoliation is important.
To prevent the breakout of acne: It is necessary to exfoliate your skin properly to prevent the outbreak of acne. This is because the excess oil gets trapped down below the dead skin cells. Removing this dead skin by exfoliating helps in controlling acne to a large extent
Glow up: The offset of summers often makes the skin a little harsh and blotchy with visible signs of pigmentation. Exfoliating your skin helps you get rid of the dead skin cells which ultimately makes your skin look brighter and smoother.
2. Be gentle while cleansing
For those with oily skin all the year round, it is highly recommended to use a gel type, foaming and scrubbing cleanser. You can experiment a bit when it comes to choosing a cleanser for summers, but when it comes to winters, being a bit choosy often helps.
On the same lines, if you have a normal or a combination skin type, it is highly recommended to use a cleanser which is gentle, less foamy and non-abrasive.
On the contrary, if you have a dry skin, it is highly recommended to avoid using harsh cleaners.
Make sure that your cleanser is gentle as too harsh cleanser washes away all the natural oil of your skin. Settling for less when it comes to cleanser means compromising with your skincare and inviting the breakouts, dehydration, and sensitivity.
3. Keep up the moisture

Fall means itchy, dry and flaky skin. For keeping this uninviting skin condition at bay, you need to be proactive. Besides spreading moisture over your skin, you should also consider these:
- Hydrating serums: haven’t used one yet? If yes, wait no more. They are like magical potions for skin put underneath the normal moisturizer. They are basically tropical treatments that have the capacity to penetrate much deeper and faster into your bare skin and keep it hydrated for a long time.
- Gel-cream moisturizers: if you hate using creams and possess oily or combo type skin, gel creams are certainly made for you. They help in moisturizing your skin without any sort of greasiness.
- Add oil: another way to moisturize your skin is to add a few drops of oil to your lotion or cream to make it richer. This keeps your skin moisturized for longer. Also, you can choose to pat a few drops of oil after applying moisturizer to keep your skin well hydrated.
