8 Skin Care Tips for This Winter
Your skin needs some extra care in the winter, the harsh, cold weather can take its toll on your skin. This 8 step winter skin care routine will revitalise your skin and leave it protected from the cold, leaving it soft and smooth, and free of irritation.
- WASH IN LUKEWARM WATER
We all love to take long hot showers and baths in the winter to heat up but this could in fact be harmful to your skin. Washing in lukewarm water ensures you strip away as little oils from the skin as possible.
It’s very important to exfoliate, removing dead skin cells will allow your skin to absorb more moisture. If we don’t exfoliate regularly the dead skin cells build up and stop moisture from getting into the skin increasing the chances or dry, irritated skin. Using an exfoliator followed directly by a moisturiser will ensure the best results.
Algovital Soft Peeling Gel softly removes dead keratin cells on your skin, restoring your skin to a smooth and clear condition.
- USING THE RIGHT CLEANSER
Cleansers can be harsh and drying on the skin therefore they should be used along with a matching toner. After cleansing, the skin shouldn’t be left for more than 30 seconds before applying the toner and essence, this helps to seal the moisture into the skin. Cleansers that contain moisturising ingredients are the best to use in winter.

- MOISTURISE WELL
Choosing the right moisturiser for your skin is very important, some moisturisers can contain many ingredients that may dry out your skin further. The moisturiser you use in summer may not necessarily be the right one for you in winter. A moisturiser with more natural and nourishing ingredients that is oil-based rather than water-based will be better to ensure the skin is kept hydrated all day.
Algovital Angel Moisturising Cream helps to restore damaged skin with nutrients obtained from 5 different types of germinating sprout extracts. The cream balances oil and moisture, allowing vitality to be regained, and soothes fatigued and irritated skin.
Your skin needs protected from outdoor elements even in the winter. Wearing gloves and scarves to cover as much of your skin as possible is a habit you should get into. This helps protect your skin as much as possible during the winter months. It’s not just the harsh, cold winter days we need to protect our skin from but also the winter sun. This can be equally as dangerous as the summer sun. Wearing a decent sun cream will ensure your skin is still protected from the sun, even in winter. Many moisturisers also contain sun protection.

- NIGHT MOISTURISERS
Moisturising your skin at night is just as important, if not more important, than moisturising in the morning. A good, deep moisturiser should be applied at night before bed, this ensures your skin remains hydrated through the night. Remember to apply on those particularly dry areas around your feet, elbows and knees.

- AVOID TOXINS AND HARMFUL CHEMICALS
