Welcome Winter With These 5 Winter Care Beauty Essentials in Your Bag

It is winter, so bring out all those sweaters and legwarmers; air out those jackets and mufflers; get ready to step out covered and protected. But in this eagerness to prepare for the season, are you neglecting your skin’s winter needs?

Warm inside, cold outside. Cosy and protected inside, biting cold and harsh winds outside. While we love winters for all the gorgeous sweaters and scarves and boots that we can wear, this constant fluctuation wreaks havoc with our skin and hair. 

Thank god for winter skincare and hair care essential beauty products. Malls and departmental stores have anticipated your needs, and shelves are already filled with hydrating, moisture-locking beauty care products that will keep your hair and skin looking and feeling gorgeous all through these harsh months. 

Here’s our list of 5 must-have beauty winter care products. We’ve also put down a few beauty tips for winter that can show you how to nourish your skin and keep it looking radiant, as always. 

Top 5 Winter Care Beauty Products

Winter essential #1: Oil-based serum
Ditch the water-based gels that you’ve been using all summer. (Don’t throw them away; stock them in the refrigerator to keep them fresh until summer’s back.) 

During winter, your skin needs more, much more, hydration. It needs oil. Your skin is dry and oils get easily absorbed, leaving behind nourished, healthy and youthful skin.

Pick a night-time oil-based serum and let it work its magic while you sleep. These special formulas don’t leave behind a greasy film. If you wish, you can also add a few drops of a nourishing herbal oil to your winter moisturiser. 

Winter essential #2: Lip balm 
Invest in a good buttery formula lip balm and have a kissable pout all through winter. Look for ingredients like Shea butter, coconut oil or jojoba oil as these nourish and prevent the cold wind from getting to the delicate skin of your lips. Pick some colourful shades, so they double up as lipsticks too. 

Winter essential #3: Hair mask
Your hair seems to have a mind of its own during winter. Frizzy, unruly and dry; not something you’d want to step out with. Oils and hair masks are your best friends in winter. There are several products in the market. Pick one with nourishing oils to get the bounce back in your tresses. Use twice a week to deep condition your locks. 

Winter essential #4: Hand creams and body lotions
Hands, feet, elbows, knees and the back – all the spots on your body that feel the brunt of winter. Get yourself an all-round body lotion as well as a hand cream (yes, hands need special treatment of their own). Invest in rich, unscented winter therapy to keep your skin soft, supple and fully moisturised. 

Winter essential #5: Body scrub
Even with the best of creams and lotions, your skin tends to get dry and rough. Use a body scrub to gently slough away the top layer once or twice a week. Look for one that has Shea butter and sugar. This is deeply moisturising and not rough on your skin either, leaving it velvety soft.
