We bet that one of the last things you want to do in winter is to apply full makeup to your face. After all, the dry winter air can cause dull, dry skin. The reason why this happens:During the colder months, there are lower levels of moisture and humidity in the air. This – coupled with the fact that you probably spend a lot of time in a warm, central-heated room – can lead to lower moisture levels in your skin. The good news is that there are some simple beauty hacks to brighten up the look of your skin. Here are some beauty hacks for dry skin.
Exfoliate weekly to remove dead skin cells
First things first:Exfoliating on a regular basis can help remove dead skin cells that build up on the skin's surface (this build-up, in turn, can lead to dull skin). Everyone's skin is different – some people can handle daily exfoliation, while others can only do it once or twice a week. Pay attention to how your skin reacts to see what works best for you.
Use a charcoal mask
Over time, harsh environmental factors, such as pollution, can damage the skin, leaving your complexion looking dull and tired. Use a charcoal mask designed to remove impurities, dirt and pollution and reduce the appearance of dull skin. Immediately skin looks brighter, radiant and feels smoother.
Scrub your lips
You can also exfoliate your lips. Buy a lip scrub or a facial scrub that can also be used on your lips. The scrub provides a gentle but effective peeling.
Choose the best moisturizer for your skin type
You know that using a moisturizer should be part of your daily skincare routine for dry skin (in fact, you should apply a moisturizer morning and night!) but in the winter, you may need to change your moisturizer. replace it with a moisturizing cream that provides long-lasting hydration.
Create a faux glow with self tanner
Why do you always look radiant in the summer? The good news is that you can also do it in the winter with a self-tanner. Before applying self-tanner, exfoliate and moisturize. When you're done, wait for the self-tanner to dry before getting dressed or applying makeup.
If you've never used a primer, you're missing out, especially if you have dry skin. A primer can help create even skin for the rest of your makeup (that means no more visible dryness!), and it ensures that your makeup is even on your face.
Choose a luminous finish
Now is the time to choose a different foundation for the winter season to get a complexion that looks glowy, not dull and dry. Choose a liquid foundation with a luminous finish.
Spray your face with a make-up setting spray
If you have dry skin, using a makeup setting spray can make dry patches less noticeable. So get one.
Remove your makeup with micellar water
It's not just about how you put your makeup on dry skin, but also how you take it off at the end of the day. Use micellar water instead of traditional makeup remover. Micellar water consists of small micelles – oil molecules – that are suspended in water. These molecules attract makeup, dirt and oil and away from your skin – all without rinsing.
