How do you know winter is here?
If your answer is “Well, because now my skin is dry and itchy, it must be winter!”, then we are very sorry. You really don’t have to go through that! Winter can be a wonderland if you avoid the bumpy ride called ‘Winter Skin’, that makes it hard for you to enjoy your day outside. Well, what is winter skin, and how do you know you have it?
Signs that tell you have winter skin
Have an itchy, stinging feeling on your legs? Redness of skin, along with dryness and roughness? All these are signs of winter skin. You may also see thin cracks on the skin, scaliness or flakiness and a persistent feeling of irritation or rawness that can show up.
These are signs that mostly manifest on your legs, feet, and lips - as these parts are the ones more exposed to the winter weather. With busy schedules and a hectic lifestyle, what you need is the most honest and potent winter skincare routine.
But, ever wondered why are winters hard on the skin?
When temperatures fall in winter, humidity drops too - and the air in winter thus becomes dry after losing its moisture content. The water in the air, that turns into snow or fog, causes UV rays to reflect. In such a scenario, the onus of the skin doubles up to combat dryness as well as UV rays, during winter. Under all this stress, the skin cracks.
The issue of winter skin won’t fade away if you don’t take the effort to maintain its health regularly throughout winter. Winter time, therefore, requires aligning your winter skincare routine that you will follow regularly.

Since the products are Ecocert COSMOS Organic-certified, you can be sure that 95% of the ingredients are plant-based, and a minimum of 20% of all ingredients are organic - here is an organic brand that guarantees you safety, standard and results.

1. Adjust Your Skincare Routine
Start by fixing a skincare routine. The problem of winter skin arises in the first place because either your routine lacks something, or turns ineffective due to improper approach that your skin needs. Let’s help get you right.
After a bath with lukewarm water, pat your skin dry instead of rubbing down. To lock the moisture in your skin, the best habit during winter is to moisturize right after a bath. For best results, ensure you use a good organic moisturizing cream. Check the label for lactic acid or jojoba oil, as they are effective in keeping your skin hydrated.
3. Apply Sunscreen
The next step is to apply sunscreen. Yes, sunscreen - even during the cloudy gloomy winter skies, never skip sunscreen. Your sunscreen should be broad spectrum, water-resistant and contain SPF 30 at the least.
4. Day Cream
Additionally, you can apply a Day Cream that offers great protection from dust, pollution, and stress of the day as well as UV rays. Caring Compounds Anti-Pollution Day Detox Cream is a day cream that protects from UV rays, contains Aloe Vera and Shea Butter to nourish the skin.
With natural antioxidants, such as vitamin C, vitamin E and Sugar Complex, the cream gives you a long-lasting hydration for the skin. It is important to moisturize regularly throughout the day to replenish the natural oils that you lose.
5. Wear Soft Clothes
Throughout the day, as you're going about work, it is important to wear loose-fitting soft fabrics to prevent your skin from friction. Layer any rough fabrics like wool on the outside so that you remain warm and avoid your skin from irritation of the fabric. Make sure that the skin comes in contact with loose soft fabric.
6. Drink Lots of Water and Eat the Right Food
The best way to hydrate your skin is from the inside. Drink plenty of water. Avoid alcohol as it dehydrates your skin easily. Consume food that is rich in omega -3 fatty acids like fish and antioxidants such as vitamin C.
7. Night Treatment to Repair Skin
At the end of the day, it is important to use overnight treatments. Night treatments work to repair the skin from the harsh effects of the day. During winters, make sure that you use a moisturizer and an overnight cream to repair the skin before sleep.
Caring Compounds Revitalize + Repair Night Gel is an overnight cream that improves skin barrier functions, regenerates dead tissues and maintains moisture balance. Night treatments, thus, make the skin more responsive to other facial treatments.
The way to be honest with yourself is to use solutions that want to be honest with you. And organic remedies are usually safe and sustainable, unlike chemical treatments.
Winter can be hard, but the steps to follow for a healthy skin are easy.
