Winter is coming, ladies! Brace up to save yourself from the coldwinds. How exactly do you do that? Let me explain it to you. You don’t have to have the same makeup products through the year because they do not fulfill your needs according to the weather. I’ll explain to you the five products that you need to swap before you winter arrives so that you’re prepare to combat the harshness of weather.
You’ll probably be surprised to know that the first thing I toss out and go pick a new one from cosmetic aisle is a moisturizer. In winter, skin needs to be more hydrated than ever. So your regular summer moisturizer is not enough. Although moisturizers are completely your personal preference and everyone knows what would suit their skin best, but I’d recommend you get Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30. Mainly because it provides added protection for sunny winter days.
We all want our eyes to be so bright and spotless that having to use concealer becomes a myth, but sadly that isn’t the case. Eye creams, however, help a lot with the thin lines that might be formed due to dehydrated skin. It’s hard to figure out that skin around the eyes needs moisture since it is so incredibly thin. Get yourself a super creamy eye cream that works as an armor for your eyes underneath the makeup. Or you can choose an eye primer with super creamy formula.
Toss your regular lip balms out, I know your regular lip balms help a lot since they hydrate (as per your perception) your lips and give them a pop of color at the same time. However, that is far from truth. The colorants and fragrances in such products tend to dry out the skin. The skin of lips is especially very thin and sensitive, so opt for a lip butter such as the one by Nivea for a creamy texture and then top it off with a lipstick.
You need to keep in mind that winters wouldn’t mean you can finally let your waterproof mascara go. In fact, you probably need it more than ever now. My eyes tear up due to winter winds a lot. And then you can see dark tears rolling down my cheeks. That’s when I figured that my mascara double coats need to be of a waterproof formula. Prefer wearing a mascara made especially for sensitive eyes to avoid any further damage.
Swap your foundation for a tinted moisturizer. Why? Because foundation never is as hydrating as a moisturizer can be. With the evolution of makeup industry, hybrid products that cater to various skin needs are more in demand than ever. You can even opt for a BB or CC cream depending upon what suits your skin the best.
So these are the five basic products that you would need to swap for winters to get the most out of your makeup routine.
