What to do with your skin when winter lasts forever

Words by Fashion Journal

Hydration, hydration, hydration.

It’s no secret that keeping your skin at its best is a much harder task during winter. The cold, wind and indoor heating can all wreak havoc in their own unique ways, resulting mostly in super dry, tender skin.

If you’re looking to give your frosty pores some extra TLC, the key is staying moisturised. By employing the right products, it’s possible to trade dry or chapped skin for something that almost resembles a summer glow.

With the help of Jurlique, we’ve rounded up some of our top tips for making the most of your winter skincare routine:

1. Opt for long-lasting moisture, not just high moisture

While it’s tempting to find the thickest, most intensely moisturising product you can get your hands on, it won’t do much good if your glow is wicked away the second you step out the door. Moisturisers like the new Jurlique Moisture Plus Rare Rose Lotion are designed to last for as long as possible – 24-hours long, if we’re getting precise – while maintaining a lightweight formula that’s gentle on sensitive skin without overwhelming oilier skin types.

2. Lock water in

For skin types that lean towards naturally dry, even long-lasting products sometimes need a helping hand. To boost the power of your moisturiser, find a product like Jurlique’s Moisture Plus Rare Rose Serum, with the express purpose of keeping moisture locked in tight. By releasing microcapsules of rose extract onto the skin, the serum works to prevent water loss throughout the day, which can also help slow signs of ageing.

3. Always re-moisturise after cleansing

Cleaning your skin thoroughly is important year-round, and hopefully you’re using a product that’s tough on dirt but gentle on your skin. But even a soft soapy touch can strip away some of your natural moisture. Luckily, combating that is easy, as long as you follow up your cleanser with a moisturiser, serum or rejuvenating essence like Jurlique’s Activating Water Essence.

4. Don’t settle for feeling hydrated when you can look it, too

While not as popular as its summer twin, winter glow is definitely an achievable goal. Face oils are great for concentrated, restorative hydration, and absorb quickly enough to work even on naturally oily skin. Jurlique’s Skin Balancing Face Oil features grapeseed and avocado oils to nourish and plump up the skin, as well as rosehip oil for moisture and radiance.

5. If you’re going to treat yourself, do it thoughtfully

Face masks are still one of the easiest ways to treat yourself to some spa-level ‘me time’, but it’s important to pick one that’s effective. Steer clear of harsh or drying ingredients, and opt for something designed specifically for hydration. Opt for Jurlique’s Moisture Replenishing Mask for a hit of moisturising, softening botanicals, or the Rose Moisturising Plus Cream Mask for shea butter-based overnight treatment.
