Switch Up Your Shower Routine for Winter


Managing your skin during winter is not a cakewalk. Does your skin feel dry, itchy and dehydrated during the winter months? That is because of the dry air outside and the lack of humidity indoors. What does this mean? This means that you must take extra care of your skin during winter.

Your shower routine plays a crucial role in helping you take care of your skin during the winter months. With just a few changes in your shower routine and skin care, you can ensure that you have well-hydrated and supple skin even in the dreary months of winter. Read along to learn about 5 handy tips that will help you take care of your skin better in winter.

Switch up your body wash

You cannot use the same body wash which you use in the summer months for winter. It is important to invest in a hydrating body wash that will moisturise your skin and leave it feeling soft and smooth. Look for a body wash that has terms like ‘skin conditioning’ or ‘moisturising’ and ‘gentle’ mentioned on its label. Fiama Shower Gel Peach & Avocado is a great body wash for people who are on the hunt for a body wash that is highly moisturising and will help you combat the dry winter skin woes. Vivel’s Lavender & Almond Oil body wash is another hydrating body wash that is a perfect choice to add to your winter shower kit.

Take a lukewarm shower

We know how tempting it is to jump into a hot shower during the cold months but that won’t work in your skin’s favour. Hot water is believed to damage your skin cells and hair follicles. Your skin is bound to feel dry and lifeless if you take hot showers every day during the cold months. Hence, it is recommended that you switch to lukewarm water and limit your bathing time during the winter months to avoid damaging your skin.

Moisturise after shower

We cannot put enough emphasis on this. You must moisturise your skin after you step out of the shower. This will ensure that your skin stays well-hydrated throughout the day. You can consider investing in a high-quality cold cream that is specifically formulated to protect your face and neck from the dry and dull winter weather. The Chamris Cold Cream is a perfect winter cream to add to your skincare routine as it is enriched with Vitamins A, C and E. Vitamin A promotes the growth of healthy skin tissues, Vitamin C protects the skin from sun damage and Vitamin E nourishes your skin and leaves it feeling soft and smooth.

Use a body oil

Other than using soaps and shower gels that have hydrating ingredients in them, you can also consider levelling up your skincare game by including a body oil into your winter skincare routine. Try to opt for a natural and organic body oil that will leave your skin feeling baby-soft and smooth. We recommend you use Charmis cream for your face and neck after stepping out of the shower and use a hydrating body lotion and body oil for your body. The body oil will further lock in the moisture in your skin and help it stay moisturised for a longer period.

Exfoliate your skin

Winter means drier skin, more flakiness and more dead skin cells. How do you tackle this problem? Exfoliate your face and body regularly with a natural or chemical scrub that will remove all the dead skin cells from your skin and allow your skin pores to breathe and look as new as ever. However, make sure you are gentle when you are exfoliating your skin and don’t overdo it as it will further damage your winter skin.
