During winter, the air tends to be drier, which can strip the skin of its natural oils. Moisturisers create a protective barrier, preventing water loss and maintaining hydration levels.

Adequately moisturized skin is more resilient and less prone to issues such as cracking, flaking, and eczema. Winter moisturisers often contain ingredients that nourish and replenish the skin’s moisture barrier.

How to use moisturisers effectively in winter:

Apply on Damp Skin: After cleansing, apply moisturizer to slightly damp skin. This helps lock in the moisture and enhances the product’s effectiveness.
Layering Products: Consider using a hydrating serum or toner before applying moisturizer to provide an extra layer of hydration. This is especially beneficial for those with extremely dry skin.
Nighttime Moisturising: Use a thicker, more hydrating moisturizer at night to give your skin the extra nourishment it needs during the repair and regeneration process.
Don’t Forget Sunscreen: Even in winter, UV rays can damage the skin. Choose a moisturizer with built-in SPF or layer sunscreen on top of your moisturizer during the day.
