The inevitable has happened #iTANfans; winter is coming. So, what does that mean besides less bikinis and more turtlenecks? Well, it’s important to think about the colder weather and its effects on our skincare routine, too.
Here are our tips for a winter skincare routine that will keep your skin glowing and hydrated throughout the seasons:
Swap out your light and breezy moisturizer for something a little richer, thicker and more emollient. Using a thicker moisturizer in the winter months helps to combat the sort of climate that leaves your skin dull and dehydrated. The Australian Gold Hemp Nation Original After Care Lotion has an ultimate moisturizing trio of shea butter, jojoba and glycerin that work together to hydrate and lock-in moisture to the skin (available at iTAN for $25). The perfect skincare product any time of the year!
Your skin naturally becomes drier and more sensitive with colder weather and exposure to central heating. To maintain a beautiful glow, use a gentle, hydrating cleanser rather than harsh exfoliants. The Hydration Station is one of our favorite Spa services that promotes hydration using vitamin infused steam to soothe and nourish the skin.
Yes, you still need it! Although the days are shorter and we’re experiencing less sun, it doesn’t mean we don’t need to continue to protect our skin. Enjoy the outdoors with confidence when you give your skin the unsurpassed protection and bronze tones of Australian Gold sunscreens like the AG SPF 30 Spray Gel (available at iTAN for $10.99). Don’t forget about your lips! The Designer Skin Lip Smoothie SPF 15 Lip Balm helps prevent overexposure and temporarily protects dry, chapped or windburned lips (available at iTAN for $3.99).
With a direct connection between your gut and skin health, it’s important we focus on our diet and its effects on our skin. Fresh fruits and veggies can be a delicious snack and are packed with hydration your system needs; plus vitamins and nutrients. Water also helps your skin retain its elasticity, which means it can help fight the signs of aging!
5. Nighttime Routine
One of the worst things we can do for our skin is fall asleep before washing away any makeup and build-up throughout the day. Using a serum and moisturizer after cleansing your face helps to ensure healthy, beautiful skin come morning.
