Why Is Winter Skin Care Important?


‘How can I take care of my skin in winter?’ It is the most common question we ask ourselves when the weather changes and the cold weather commences.

Since the weather is harsh on the delicate protective skin layer, winter skin care requires a little more time and effort on your part. Your Skin is exposed to the elements such as the sun's radiation and the chilly air. In a chilly climate, low humidity is a common occurrence, this robs your skin of its moisture and nutrition.  This is why skincare is important in winter.

With the help of these skin care tips for winter, you may avoid that uncomfortable, ugly outcome and maintain the health and happiness of your skin all winter long.


1. Use a Good Moisturiser

In the winter, consider applying a rich moisturizer to your skin overnight to help it retain its moisture, focusing on dry areas such as lips, feet, elbows, and hands. Cover your skin with cotton gloves and socks to keep the moisture in overnight.

2. Use a Special Body Wash 

Now is the perfect time to replace your current body wash with one that is more hydrating and nourishing in nature, especially if your current product contains drying ingredients like glycolic or salicylic acid. You can consider adding NIVEA’s creme-based body washes such as Creme Care & Creme Smooth to your winter skin care arsenal.

3. Take Extra Care of Your Skin

Skin is more delicate during the winter, a special winter skin care approach can help to ensure that your skin stays healthy and happy throughout the season. If you have an irritant or allergen that triggers skin troubles such as eczema or psoriasis, be sure to avoid it. Additionally, cleanse, tone, and moisturize your face for 30 seconds to prevent more dehydration.
