There’s nothing quite like that summer-skin glow. This is why, when winter comes, it can be disheartening when our skin loses its radiance and begins to look tired, dull, and lacklustre. But with these simple steps, you can get your glow back and enjoy luminous, healthy-looking skin all year round.

Tanning Drops for Instant Glow

There are a number of skincare steps you can take to look after your skin and get a radiant complexion. But one of the best ways to achieve a natural-looking glow in the colder months is with tan drops. Lightweight facial tanning drops will give you a gradual bronzed complexion over the winter, so you’ll look sun-kissed all year round. Look for tanning drops that include skin-nourishing ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid to help keep your skin moisturized. Speaking of which…

Moisturize

Moisture is the key to glowing skin in the winter. The combination of cold weather and hard heating can play havoc with our complexion, causing it to dry out and look dry and tired. So, your skincare routine should include ingredients and products that will replenish your skin and lock in moisture. Look for a rich day cream to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day

Exfoliate

Exfoliating your skin will help to remove dead skin cells which will make your complexion look dull. However, as your skin already has to deal with harsh environments in the winter, you should only exfoliate gently and avoid anything too abrasive. A cream exfoliator can help to slough away dead skin without causing damage and will help to lightly resurface and buff your skin so it glows.

Gently Cleanse

In the winter, you may need to switch up your cleanser. Some cleansers strip away moisture, which can leave our skin dry and dull. Instead, you should use a gentle jelly cleanser that will balance the pH levels of your skin while clearing away dirt and excess oils. The result should be a clean, bright, and hydrated complexion.

Use a Facial Oil

Facial oils can help to deeply hydrate our skin, which is a must for the cold season. Plus, facial oils and be fantastic for nourishing our skin. Look for a facial oil that’s packed with nutrients that will help to replenish and repair the skin. Facial oils that contain antioxidants will help to protect the skin against damage from free radicals, which could otherwise make our skin look dull and tired.

Add Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a skincare hero for brightening our complexions. Look for products that contain vitamin C if you want glowing skin. A vitamin C serum can be especially effective, penetrating the skin to nourish from the outside in. Vitamin C can heal blemishes and reduce hyperpigmentation for an even skin tone, while also protecting the skin from damage for a radiant glow.

Overnight Mask

Overnight, your skin will naturally undertake a process to repair and regenerate. You should look for overnight skincare that can boost this regeneration process and help to leave you with glowing skin by morning. An overnight face mask will deeply hydrate your skin as you sleep and nourish your complexion to repair any damage from the day. With the right overnight mask, you’ll wake up to plump and dewy skin.

Stay Hydrated

You can help to achieve glowing skin by staying hydrated from the inside as well as the outside. You should drink plenty of water to help keep your skin healthy. Staying hydrated will flush out toxins from your body whilst also helping your skin to stay hydrated, leading to bouncier, younger-looking skin. It will also help your skin to balance the natural oils it produces, so you’re never too dry or too oily. You can also hydrate through certain foods, such as cucumber or watermelon to increase your water intake.

Avoid Hot Showers and Baths

Whilst the thought of getting into a super-hot bath or shower when it’s cold outside can be enticing, you should be careful. The hotter temperatures can cause our skin to dry out as well as cause damage and redness. To keep your skin healthy and glowy, turn down the temperature of your bath and showers.
