WINTER SKINCARE TIPS | AURA DAY SPA
Winter can be super sore on your skin. We all know the nights are getting shorter with darkness creeping in earlier but with the cold air, central heating and sudden temperature changes it can play havoc with your skin!. But, with winter skin care tips from Aura Day Spa you can fight off the worst of the cold season for the ultimate skin survival!
Aim to drink at least 2-3 litres of water per day. Hydration is key fighting the colder climate damaging your skin. Drink up to avoid dry skin and chapped lips!
Avoid harsh chemicals that exist in certain skincare products. This can be anything from makeup, your favourite moisturiser, or shampoos, which might harm your skin with the drop in temperatures.
DITCH THE MAKE-UP WIPES
Makeup wipes may be extremely easy to use but they leave a residue on the skin which can block pores causing spots, try swapping to a cleanser, using coconut oil or water instead. Establishing a proper skincare routine is key to maintaining your skin in the winter - so prepare while you can!
WEAR SPF - ALL YEAR ROUND
It’s easy to assume that just because its getting colder outside, you don’t need to worry about SPF - totally WRONG! Truth be told, UVA rays are always an issue for our skin, no matter the weather. Ensuring you’re wearing SPF is particularly important to keep your skin in tip top condition, despite the weather.
Don’t irritate dry skin further by picking or trying to treat it. This will result in scarring for the long term - which we definitely want to avoid! If you’re trying something new, be patient also! It can take up to 4 weeks for any new treatment you try to work.
TURN DOWN THE TEMPERATURE
Hot showers and turning the heating on feels great after a long cold day but they’re bad for your skin as they can seriously dry it out. Swap your heating dial for a splash of warm water to help your skin instead!
TREAT YOURSELF TO A FACIAL
A winter facial can do absolute wonders for your skin in the winter. Treatments can help restore all the moisture, reset your skin and aid general circulation. A facial from Aura Day Spa will see your skin rejuvenated and glowing as if it were summer! Book your treatment today!
