Winter is a beautiful time to tie the knot. But it can be quite harsh on your skin. When it comes to the cold season, your skin turns dry and itchy irrespective of its type, losses elasticity and can develop redness. So, when you're about to get hitched during the winter wedding season, you need the right kind of prep to ensure your skin gives you as little trouble as possible and your makeup looks flawless. 

To avoid any terrible outcomes, we have picked some of the best products that will help your skin thrive this winter season. Scroll down and say goodbye to any winter skin woes with these awesome skincare products!

Skincare Products for Winter Brides

A Super Hydrating Moisturiser

When it comes to winter based skincare, having a hydrating and creamy moisturiser should be your top priority. It'll help fight dryness and add elasticity to your skin. Plus, a good hydrating moisturiser paired with a serum or essence will improve your natural glow, giving you a gorgeous dewy look! Most people worry that a heavy moisturiser might cause acne, especially if you have oily skin. But, if your skin is dehydrated, it’s at the risk of overproducing sebum, thereby giving you breakouts anyway. Find one that’s well-suited to your skin and packed with goodies like Vitamin E, for that burst of hydration.

A Gentle Face Cleanser

The clarifying cleansers you were using in summers might not work for winters. They might dry your skin even more. So, opt for a gentle face cleanser that is probably soap-free. We suggest a gel or cream-based cleanser with salicylic acid to remove any impurities during colder months, without upsetting the skin's natural lipid barrier.

Winter-Friendly Body Butter

The body butter will be your best friend during winter. The smooth, thick and creamy consistency of body butter is very similar to the butter we love slathering on toast. There was a time when our grandmas would apply generous dollops of home-churned white butter to nourish and hydrate their limbs during winters. So why deviate from tradition? Body butter last longer and deeply nourishes the skin and balance your skin's natural moisture. They’re mostly a combination of wholesome oils like Coconut or Jojoba, and raw extracts of natural butter like Shea or Cocoa.

Extra Moisture For Your Lips

Lip balms are unfortunately the underdogs of a bride's beauty regime. While a lot of women believe that the swipe of a good lipstick can bedazzle their pucker and hide any underlying damage, it's the lip balm that's supposed to help you fix that damage. No amount of lipstick can conceal dry, dehydrated lips. Plus, it's a real injustice to your big-budget lipstick to have it worn over dry lips. Choose a nourishing lip balm that will not only hydrate your lips but also keep them protected from further damage.

Multitasking Serums

One of the best things you can do for your skin during winters is to add a serum to your skincare regime. You need a product that has multi-tasking properties. You have no idea what a handy and efficient tiny bottle of serum can do to your skin! As much as we love brides slaying a good makeup look, glowing skin helps. Our favourite is the L'Occitane Immortelle Reset Serum. This serum allows your skin to awaken and re-energise while making it switch on your skin’s repair mechanism and nourish it.

Sleeping Mask For Extra Hydration

A good sleeping mask can be a one-and-done product—it may contain hyaluronic acid, fatty acids, exfoliating acids and antioxidants like Vitamin C—which would all brighten and hydrate your skin as you snooze, so you wake up with suppler skin in the morning. They’re water-based, easily absorbable and considerably lighter on the skin than your regular moisturiser. If your skin is feeling a lack of hydration, it can also lead to a damaged skin barrier, which can leave it susceptible to imbalanced oil production that could result in breakouts or rosacea.

Hydrating Sun Screens

One of the biggest reasons why your skin is not cooperating with you during winters is the lack of sunscreen. Many people skip out on SPF during the colder months because they feel like they don't need it. However, you need sunscreen during winters, preferably a hydrating one. Go in for an ultra-hydrating, light sunscreen that’ll leave your skin flake-free. These moisturising sun protectors will cause zero itchiness, irritation or redness, and shield your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
