Keeping your skin hydrated and moisturized is the key to having happy & healthy skin, especially in winters. Winters can get harsh on your skin as the natural oil production on the skin becomes low and dries up the skin further. Hot showers also contribute to dryness as the hot water further strips of the natural oils and moisture of the skin.
Drinking a good amount of water helps to keep your body hydrated from within, and similarly using moisturizing and hydrating skincare helps your skin remain healthy in winters.
A lot of us may have the concern of going too greasy and sticky while using heavy creams and butters on the skin. Different skin types have different moisturization and hydration needs, hence you should choose accordingly.
Here, we’d be talking about light & intense moisturization and how you can differentiate and pick what best suits you.
For skin already producing a lot of sebum such as normal to oily or combination skins may opt for something lightweight yet providing a good amount of moisturization. For such needs, you can check out the following:
Oils are generally heavier in nature but this lightweight body polishing oil can be your go-to for pre-shower moisturization. It keeps the skin supple & away from dryness.
Lotions are a no-miss for winters! This aromatic body lotion absorbs quickly in the skin without leaving any stickiness behind. It moisturizes the skin completely and nourishes it.
Face serums in general hydrate the skin but ones with the HA do the magic better. Hyaluronic acid in the coffee face serum is known to hydrate the skin keeping it supple. This can be ideal for daily hydration of your face.
In winters, your hands need attention as much as the rest of the body or face. Coffee Hand Cream has a lightweight formula & moisturizes with its potent ingredients. It soothes the skin and gets absorbed quickly without any greasiness or stickiness and gives a mattifying effect.
Winters are generally hard for people with normal to dry skin. The skin gets drier and sometimes flaky. It is quite essential that you moisturize and hydrate your face and body frequently if you have dry skin. For such needs, you can check out the following:
Butters are ideal for intense moisturization. With deep skin moisturization, this Choco Body Butter will elevate your tired and dull skin keeping dryness, scars, and uneven skin tone away. Its ultra-rich formula gives you the best of intensive skincare and keeps the skin deeply moisturized.
Packed with lots of cocoa & shea butter, this lotion is a soothing moisturizer that replenishes dry skin and makes it soft. The lotion also tones the skin and gives longer periods of hydration without stickiness.
Another important face care aspect in winters is masking. With pure cocoa, caffeine, and ingredients like Seaweed & Aloe, the mask takes away the dirt, pollution, and dead cells and restores the water balance of your skin. It hydrates and nourishes the skin completely. With this mask, you need not worry about stripping off your natural oils of the face.
