As there is a dip in the temperature, our skin moves into a transition mode and becomes unmanageable This winter tackle your beauty woes with these tips.
When it’s said ‘Winter is coming’, it doesn’t necessarily need to mean a red wedding-like war on your skin. Chapped lips and dehydrated spots can bring you down, but there’s no need to fret. Just like your wardrobe, your skincare routine just needs a little tweaking.
Here are 5 tips that will help your skin win this winter:
1. Layer Without Overdoing It:
Remember that products with clean ingredients suited to your skin type will most likely work for you all year round. However, little things like changing up your regular moisturiser for a creamier day and night cream can work wonders for those dry spots. For your daytime routine, layer a moisture attracting serum, over cleansed skin and then lock in the moisture by following it up with a day cream that has natural emollients and inflammation-reducing oils. Finish up with sunscreen (YES, you do need it, even in the winter).
For your night routine, switch up the last step with an elixir or facial oil. This will provide an extra boost of nourishment and hydration so you can wake up with skin that can brighten any winter day. Neemli’s Turmeric Root & Olive Squalene Elixir hydrates skin long-term, without causing any greasiness. Overusing oils and over-layering can cause irritation. So start with small amounts and then build up to a glow routine that suits your skin type.
2. Cut Out Dehydrating Ingredients:
Products with alcohol and fragrances can irritate your skin, but they can cause even more damage during winter, worsening itchy skin and further drying it out. Aggressive treatments and acid peels are also not a great idea as they can damage the skin barrier and cause moisture loss. Beyond your skincare products, make these simple changes – cut down on alcohol, known to increase inflammation, switch from coffee to green tea and keep track of your water intake for better skin health.

3. Don’t Skip Your Toner:
If you still haven’t gotten around to using a toner, use one this winter to see the difference it can make. A toner can provide you with an extra hit of hydration during a dry winter. Toners help balance pH levels and prep your skin to absorb other skincare products. The better the absorption, the more nourished your skin. Opt for an alcohol-free toner like the Neemli Witch Hazel & Vetiver Pore Refining Toner with a soothing blend of anti-inflammatory Witch Hazel Water, cooling and hydrating Vetiver Water, and moisturising Aloe Vera Leaf Extract.
4. Show Your Eyes & Lips Some Love:
Dry winter air can cause irritation and redness around the eye area, making it look puffy and swollen. In addition to running a humidifier in your home, make sure you use an effective eye cream so the sensitive under-eye area gets the hydration it particularly needs during the winter months. Avoid dry, cracked, and chapped lips with a natural lip balm that you can apply in the AM as well as before going to bed. Neemli’s all-natural Hemp Seed Oil & Shea Butter Lip Balm provides instant moisturisation and helps heal chapped and cracked lips.
5. Pay Attention To Your Body Care & Shower Rituals:
Don’t leave that gorgeous body out when it comes to giving yourself a winter glow-up. Avoid taking very hot showers, as this dries out your skin quickly. Use lukewarm water and moisturise with an indulgent body butter right after you’re done (keep it on the bathroom shelf!). If you’re opting for body oil instead of body butter, slather some on immediately after you towel off. You can even use it in the tub as part of a winter bath ritual 2-3 times a week. This will not just make you feel amazing; it will take most of that winter dreariness away!
