Nothing beats hydrated, plump and luminous skin for an ultimate bridal glow, but it's easier said than done, especially in winter! Here are some achievable steps that we can do for our skin this winter.
Maintaining a good level of water intake is one of the cheapest and most effective way to hydrate skin and lips. Aim for a minimum of 8 glasses a day.
Avoid hot water on your skin
Steaming hot water is very dehydrating. Avoiding hot showers in winter in a big ask, but at least avoid using hot water on the face.
Know your skin needs
Healthy skin needs both water and oil. There is a difference between dry skin (lack oil) and dehydrated skin (lack water). To cover both basis, you may need a water-based hydrating serum, as well as a facial oil (yes - even oily skin can use a facial oil as it helps to regulate oil production).
Don't skip sunscreen
UV rays are not less damaging just because the weather is cold. Use a sunscreen or a moisturiser with SPF every day to avoid hyper pigmentation, dehydration and pre-mature aging caused by the sun.
