Hydrating Essentials for Winter Skin

Harsh weather calls for gentle skin care. With the festive season causing itchy and dry skin due to houses being heated, warm baths and relaxed health habits, learn how to create a winter skincare routine that will get you back to having that summer glow. 

The best winter skincare routine

  1. Check the ingredients in your cleanser
    Using a soap-free and non-lathering cleanser during winter is less likely to dry out your skin as they have a more natural pH. 
  2. Gently exfoliate
    Gently exfoliate your skin with an oil-based exfoliator for added moisture. When it gets cold, your skin can appear duller, but it’s important to be mindful of how you’re exfoliating as although the skin may be flakier, it is usually more sensitive.
  3. Add a water-based serum or moisturizer
    The face tends to produce fewer oils during winter which makes us want to use heavier moisturizers, especially when dry patches and itchy skin starts to surface. Water-based skincare products help other ingredients within the product to do their job to their best ability. It has so many benefits, which is exactly why Antidote N°1 uses a water-based formula.

    Water-based skincare can help to instantly rejuvenate the skin by penetrating the deeper layers of skin. Not only does it quench your skin’s thirst, but it also helps plump your complexion. This tends to have an anti-ageing effect that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving you with a youthful, hydrated glow. 

Caring for your skin, regardless of the season, should be a time for self-care. Shop Antidote N°1 for an all-season skin saviour.
