New Delhi: Come winter, and our skin demands different care. Adopt these simple tips for naturally-glowing winter skin.

Mohit Narang, Skincare expert at Avon gives you tips on how to face the cold weather and retain that glow.

» Follow your skincare routine diligently

One should follow a very basic and simple skincare routine to keep the skin happy during winters. Cleanse your skin twice a day i.e. every morning and before going to bed. Follow the cleansing process with a light daily moisturiser to lock the moisture in and opt for a heavy moisturiser or overnight cream in the night. This should be done on softly damp skin because just-washed skin absorbs moisture better.

» Do not overly exfoliate

Skin exfoliation is done to get rid of dead skin cells. You should be extra careful in winters because the skin is already compromised due to dry and cold weather. You should exfoliate your skin only once in a week to help in boosting skin regeneration and better product absorption. Men should also be careful while exfoliating depending on their skin types.

» Moisture crucial after hot showers

People tend to have hot showers in winters but taking hot showers and not moisturising after can create cracks and an uneven skin surface. If the skin is not immediately moisturised, the cracks in the skin let the nerves get exposed to air, resulting in eczema or winter's itch. Always apply moisturiser immediately after a hot shower.

» Use a sunscreen

Never skimp on sunscreen during winters. It is a lifesaver when you step out into the winter sun. Not only does it protect your skin from damage because of pollutants and harsh ultraviolet rays, it also helps prevent premature ageing.

» Invest in a sleeping mask

Korean beauty products have become quite a rage recently and rightly so. The sleeping sheet masks can be worn over a moisturiser at night to pack in all your serums and cream helping the skin absorb these nutrients more easily.
