Essential Korean Skincare Tips for Winter
Let’s be honest, the only skincare dream we have is to keep our skin healthily moisturized and looking good all year long. However, during winter, our skin may result in a less-than-ideal shape due to the harsh cold climate and dry indoor air. Low humidity, which is common in colder climates, steals moisture from the skin every second of every day, makes the skin easily dry, flaky, red, and can even wreak havoc with our complexions, too. Fret not! Keep scrolling for some essential winter skincare tips to achieve healthy and happy skin, looking its best all winter long.
Tip #1: Choose Skincare Products & Ingredients Properly
If your skin is getting dry and flaky in winter means your skin is in constant need of moisture. Considering it as an alert to keep your skin hydration level, opt for the products like hydrating toners which can help maintain your skin pH level, and moisturizers formulated with rich hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid or glycerin which help boost the skin’s moisture level and tea tree oil which helps soothe the dry skin by reducing irritation and itchiness.
Tip #2: Treatment Step is Key
No wonder our skin often gets irritation, redness, dryness, flaky, and inflamed in winter months and dry skin, in return, sometimes leads to signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. If you are still on basic skincare steps, start treating your skin with a good serum or ampoule which are specially designed for a radiant, youthful complexion with silky skin texture and impressive elasticity. To get the most out of your products, know your skin type first.
Tip # 3: Don’t Forget Your Sunscreen
The most common myth is people tend to think they can skip sunscreen steps once the winter comes. Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean the harmful UV radiations are not affecting your skin. The sun can still be extremely strong and it can damage your skin, especially when snow reflects the radiations. No matter the weather, cold or summer, at home or outside, remember that there is no excuse for sunscreen.
Tip #4: Exfoliate for Excellent Skin
Winter is the best time to exfoliate your skin and there are many benefits if you do it properly. Not only will it take off the dry, dead skin cells, but also it helps you regenerate new ones, revealing a youthful complexion. But when overdo it, it may, unfortunately, result in more irritated, sensitive, and overly dry skin. New to exfoliation? Read a beginner’s guide here!
Tip #5: Add Moisturizing Sheet Mask in Your Routine
The sheet mask is a favorite step of all skincare lovers, especially due to its effectiveness even over one single application. If you feel your skin needs a hydrating kick, moisturizing sheet masks are truly essential to replenish the skin moisture and achieve a glowy and dewy look. Apply every day or at least 2-3 times a week.
Winter comes up with loads of fun things like Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year events. But if we don’t take extra care of our skin through the winter months, definitely, it cannot be happy like it does in other seasons. Upgrade your skincare steps with Meekah now!
