Well, no matter how much we love the winters, we can’t escape the fact that it comes along those cold gusts of wind that are extremely capable of knocking off the oil balance of your skin. We can definitely load ourselves with jackets and scarves, but protecting the face from the harsh weather that eventually leads to dryness and rough skin is a tedious task.At such circumstances, doing makeup can be really cumbersome, seeking which, we have come up with some quick winter skin care makeup tips that can help you stay beautiful even in the bone chilling winters:
Prep your skin at night
It’s essential and you will definitely notice a difference when you wake up the next day. A gentle moisturizer will keep your skin healthy and will make it easier for the foundation to be spread evenly on your face on the following morning.
Use a gentle face wash
Look for something that can remove your makeup and cleanse your face without being harsh on your skin. Remember that the whole idea is to keep the skin smooth and supple. Use a natural moisturizer preferably with avocado or coconut extracts right after to keep the dryness off. You can also look for moisturizers with anti-inflammatory ingredients as it is an interesting characteristic that helps you reduce flakiness and irritation.
The need for primer
If you can keep your skin well moisturized utilizing the abovementioned steps, you won’t need to apply primer. However, if you can still feel dryness, it can help you achieve an even skin surface for the makeup.
Experiment and keep the coverage light
At first you might not be familiar with how different products react to your skin in the winters. Therefore, you must opt for thin layers and try mixing things up to analyze how your skin absorbs the ingredients and which ingredients can give your better result. Use a damp beauty blender to make the entire coverage seamless.
Focus on your lips
All your efforts can be ruined if you walk around with those chapped and dry lips. Don’t forget to exfoliate them and get rid of the dead skin. Use a tinted lip balm over your lipstick to keep the dryness possibilities at bay. Moisturize them with a natural lip balm while sleeping.
Last but not the least, bring some small changes in your routine makeup
Since your skin is extra sensitive in winters, you must not overdo the makeup and keep it light. Try to use rosy redness resulted by the cold weather to your advantage by using light blush only. It’s a good time to focus more on highlighting your eyes. At the end, use a setting spray that also has hydrating capabilities. It will keep your skin fresh all day long.
