The winter season gives a new start to your daily routine– the bed feels cosier, the morning coffee sets you up for the day and sometimes, the evening coffee is exchanged for a cup of hot chocolate to keep you warmed up. But even when everything is warm and sweet during this season, without a proper winter skincare routine, it brings along skin concerns like dry, cracked skin, flaky lips, and more. Because of the lack of humidity, the air dries up, resulting in moisture chipping away from your skin.
And in a season where we yearn to be under the sun the most, exposure to sunlight for long hours breaks down collagen, causing sunspots, sagginess and so much more.
To help you make the best of the winter season, let The Moms Co. guide you through the essential components in a Winter Skincare Routine that’ll help your skin retain moisture for longer, avoid flaky-itchy skin, instead get natural, glowing skin.
Is a Winter Skincare Routine Really Necessary?
100% yes. To ensure your skin is moisturized and doesn’t appear flaky, ideally, one would buy a moisturizer. A moisturiser with ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Kakadu Plum and Niacinamide can help you tackle dry skin and work towards reducing ageing signs. You can opt for The Moms Co. Natural Vita Rich Face Serum which will help you repair and replenish your skin during the winter season. It also promotes an even skin tone and skin elasticity and improves skin radiance. But is a moisturiser really enough? Winter is undeniably harsh on the skin, which is why, a particular skincare routine during winter is a must for healthy, hydrated skin.
Here’s what an ideal winter skincare routine should include:
Sulphate-Free Face Wash
A normal face wash every day will keep your skin clean from dirt, pollutants, and other bacteria, but most often, these face washes contain sulphate. They can deprive your skin of natural oils, leaving behind dry-flaky skin because of the naturally dry winter air.
Therefore, a sulphate-free face wash is essential in a winter skincare routine. Go for a natural, toxin-free face wash that helps cleanse the skin gently and is a great hydrating ingredient. The Moms Co. has a wide range of natural, dermatologically tested, toxin-free & sulphate-free face wash suited for all skin types.
Washing your face isn’t always enough. To deeply clean and detoxify your skin, you need a face mask! You can opt for a Moms Co. Natural Clay Face Mask. This face mask is a blend of power-packed ingredients like pure Moroccan Lava, Kaolin and Fullers Earth Clays, Activated Charcoal, and plant AHAs that detoxify the skin, and give you reduced blackheads, acne and blemishes. The best part? It tightens and brightens the skin too! Other than this, you can also trust The Moms Co. Purifying Turmeric Face Mask for polished and nourished skin.
Since Face Serums are lighter, they majorly and most importantly, help in nourishing and restoring your skin from within. A Face serum rich in Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C & other natural ingredients will help draw moisture to the skin and further retain it for a longer period. We have a range of completely natural, chemical-free, toxin-free, and dermatologically tested face serums that provide ample benefits to your skin.
The Natural Ceramide Face Serum works effectively in rebuilding the barrier to protect your skin and keep it hydrated with rich qualities of Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, Natural Vitamin E and Rice Water. You can also try considering the Natural Vita Rich Face Serum. This serum is powered with ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Kakadu Plum, Vitamin E and Niacinamide that re-energise your skin, support a healthy skin barrier and work as a great serum for dry skin types. Why moms love this product more is because it reduces fine lines too!
Under Eye Cream
The harsh, cold weather causes the natural hydrating quality to dry off from your skin, giving way to puffiness and wrinkles. That, added to the stress from your daily life, resulting in sleeplessness, tiredness and much more can cause dark circles to form under your eyes. In such situations, adding a Natural Under Eye Cream made with Chamomile Oil and Niacinamide in your Winter Skincare Routine is ideal, and will help fight wrinkles, dark circles, and puffy under eyes.
Made with natural Coffee and Chamomile Oil, the Natural Under Eye Cream by The Moms Co. helps reduce dark circles, signs of ageing, and swelling and depuffs the under-eye area, all-in-one.
To get the best results for your visible signs of ageing and dull skin, you can try considering Natural Age Control Face Oil. Infused with natural ingredients such as Bakuchiol, Chia Seed Oil, Sea Buckthorn Oil, Natural Vitamin E etc, this face oil helps defy visible signs of ageing and keeps the skin looking plump and young.
If you want your skin to fight off winter dryness, itching, and flaking with a few easy steps, then adding a moisturizing cream or lotion to your winter regime is a must.
Some of the best components to look for in a moisturizing cream or body lotion are Ceramides, Rice water, Vitamin C, Bakuchiol (a natural, healthier alternative to Retinol), and other natural ingredients because they help in the deep moisturization and collagen formation of your skin. Clinically Tested for 72 Hours of Moisturization, our Natural Ceramide Face Cream rebuilds damaged skin barrier & accelerates its repair. It retains moisture and blocks environmental damage and works best for all skin types, especially in winter.
Sunscreens are not just Summer products. They’re 365 days essentials. Prolonged exposure to sunlight during winter can result in collagen breakdown which can make skin dull and dry. A sunscreen’s job is to protect your skin from the after-effects of collagen breakdown, and the harmful UV-A and UV-B rays which can cause premature aging.
With the Natural Daily Sunscreen by The Moms Co., you can be sure of a non-sticky, lightweight, no-white-cast mineral Sunscreen. It not only provides protection against UV rays and UV-B rays but also prevents redness, and dark spots and fights pigmentation.
One of the easiest steps to incorporate into your skincare routine is using a hydrating Lip Balm. Winters cause your lips to dry up quickly and very often, which is why it is essential to have a Lip Balm handy everywhere you go. Get a product that is rich in Vitamin E, and Shea Butters, these will nourish your lips and effectively repair chapped lips. Made with nourishing ingredients like Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter with hints of cherry, The Moms Co.’s range of nutrient-packed Natural Lip Balms will help you deeply nourish and hydrate chapped lips. If you’re looking for dry and chapped lips, you can trust this Moms Co. Natural Cherry Lip Balm with your eyes shut. This lip balm is power-packed with nutrients like Cocoa Butter and Shea butter with hints of Cherry. This lip balm helps in deeply hydrating your dry and chapped lips. And what makes this lip balm likeable is it’s free from harmful toxins!
