As we await the exit of summers in Dubai and prep ourselves for hot coco and sweater weather, it is essential to update your skincare shelf and not just your clothing wardrobe.

When selecting skincare products for the winter, it’s important to focus on hydration and protection. Look for products with these key ingredients and qualities:

Hydrating Ingredients: Opt for products that contain hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, or ceramides. These ingredients help to lock in moisture and prevent dryness.
Rich Moisturizers: Choose thicker, richer moisturizers compared to lighter ones used in summer. Creams or ointments are often better for winter as they create a barrier to prevent moisture loss.
Soothing Ingredients: Look for products with soothing ingredients like aloe vera or chamomile, as they can help calm any irritation or redness caused by cold winds.

Don’t skip sunscreen in the winter. UV rays can still damage your skin, especially when reflected off snow. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Consider using oil-based cleansers to remove makeup and impurities without stripping your skin of its natural oils. Gently exfoliate your skin with a mild exfoliant a couple of times a week to remove dead skin cells and allow your moisturizers to penetrate better. Serums with antioxidants like vitamin C can help protect your skin from environmental damage.

Remember that everyone’s skin is different, so it’s important to pay attention to your skin’s specific needs. You may need to adjust your skincare routine based on how your skin responds to the products you choose. Scroll below to take a look at our recommendations.
