Since winters are getting nearer, we are all excited to experience snowfall and chilly breezes. We all love the winter season and I like to embrace the warmth of soft and cozy blankets and quilts. However, the winter season has some drawbacks when it comes to skin. We all experience dry, cracky, itchy, and scaly skin in winter, which seems very disturbing to all of us. Many people are searching the internet for tips for glowing skin. Don’t worry if you are also the one, we have come up with the best skin care tips for glowing skin in the winter season.

Let’s Try Out the Following Guidelines for Glowing and Flawless Skin in Winter

Our skin gets dry, scaly, and dull in winter and we all want to get rid of it. If you want glowing skin in winter, try out the following tips and embrace the winter season without any worries.

1.  Moisturize Your Skin Daily

Moisturizing cream

This is the most essential part of skincare, as it will help your skin from getting dry. In winter, almost everybody keeps moisturizing creams and lotions with them all the time. It’s best to apply body lotions and moisturizers right after taking a shower, on damp skin. Avoid applying it on wet skin, just pat dry your body with a towel, and then apply body lotion and moisturizer.

Moving on, apply hand cream or lotion every time you wash your hands. Also, apply night cream before going to bed, as it will lock moisture in your skin pores. Once your skin is moisturized, it will glow because in winter our skin gets dry due to insufficient moisture.

2.  Apply Face Oils

Face Oil

Another important tip for glowing skin is to use face oils. As mentioned earlier, our skin gets dry in winter as it loses moisture or gets dehydrated. Therefore, face oils are the best thing to apply on your face during winter for a glowing and dewy look. Face oils help to lock moisture and retain water in our skin.

Face oils are made from plant extracts and essential oils, and they contain antioxidants, minerals, and fatty acids, which are crucial for healthy and glowing skin. It not only keeps the skin moisturized but also keeps it from clogging, repairs dead skin cells, and adds glow to your skin. For best results, apply face oil during the day as well as at night time. Take a few drops of face oil and apply it to your face. Moreover, it’s best to apply face oil after serum, and then lock it with moisturizer.     

3.  Apply Serums


Face serums

Face Serums are yet another best skin care products for glowing and shiny skin. Serums are lighter and thinner than moisturizers and are best for smooth and soft texture. Since face serums are rich in hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, and vitamin C, they keep your skin hydrated and keep it from clogging and dryness. Furthermore, serums add radiance and brightness to your skin, make your skin tone even, minimize open skin pores, and prevent dullness and wrinkles.

For best results, apply serum first and then cover it with face oil and moisturizer. Moreover, you can apply moisturizer and sunscreen after the serum. Since serums are best for hydrating your skin, therefore, it will add an endless glow to your skin in winter.

4.  Use Hydrating Cleansers

Cleansers are best for removing dirt and pollutants from your skin. Our skin gets dry and scaly in winter, therefore cleansing is necessary to avoid clogging in skin pores. It’s best to use hydrating cleansers as they are rich in hyaluronic acid and ceramides. For best results, use a cleanser twice a day, in the morning and at night time. However, avoid too much cleansing. If you feel that your skin is tight and oil-free after cleansing it, then don’t wash it anymore.

It is recommended to use cleansers that do not have foaming agents and are labeled ‘fragrance-free’ or ‘alcohol-free.’ These ingredients cause dryness and wear away natural skin oil and moisture. Therefore, it’s best to use hydrating cleansers that do not contain alcohol, foaming agents, and fragrances.

5.  Exfoliate Your Skin


                        Exfoliate Your Skin

Exfoliation helps to get rid of dead skin cells, dryness, and blocked pores. Therefore, it is best to exfoliate your skin even in winter, and then apply moisturizer to keep your skin from getting dull and dry. If you want glowing and fresh skin, exfoliate using a gentle scrub, as it will not wear away moisture. For best results, use exfoliators containing strawberry, papaya, or neem.

When you use exfoliators, it allows your skin pores to absorb moisturizers and products that moisturize your skin. If you do not exfoliate your skin, it will not absorb moisturizer, face oil, serums, or anything that you apply on your face for glow and soft skin. Moreover, do not exfoliate too much as your skin will lose natural oil. 

6.  Use Lip Balms

Lip balm

In winter, our lips also get dry and flaky, just like our skin. Therefore, it is equally important to keep your lips moisturized as well as your skin. If you want your skin to look radiant and gleamed, your lips should be smooth and soft to complement your look. If your lips are dry and scaly and your skin is glowing, it will look unappealing and awful.
It’s best to use lip balms and chapsticks that keep your lips moisturized and soft. For best results, use lip balms that have petroleum jelly or wax, as it will retain moisture and keep your lips smooth and soft for long periods. Moreover, you can also apply any colored or transparent gloss for a luminous and gleaming look.   

7.  Avoid Using Hot Water

Although we love to have long showers with hot water. It may surprise you that this is not good for your skin. It's obvious that we are not trying to say that you should use cold water, that’s a big ‘no.’ Using very hot water for shower or washing hands will cause dryness and irritation. Your skin loses moisture when it is exposed to hot water.  
Instead, use lukewarm water for showers and other daily routine work. It will keep your skin moisturized and retain natural oil. Moreover, if you use hot water, your skin will get dry and flaky, and you won’t be able to have glowing and radiant skin. If you really want radiant and glowing skin, then moisturizing should be your top priority.

8.  Apply Sunscreen

We tend to associate sunscreen with summer, however, it is equally important to use them in winter. In order to have shiny and luminous skin in winter, you need to protect it against sunlight in winters. Although there is minimal to no sunlight in winter, it can penetrate through clouds up to 80%. UV rays can cause premature aging and wrinkles, which will keep you from having glowing skin.

Therefore, don’t forget to apply sunscreen before going out. Medical experts suggest using sunscreen with SPF 15 or more and applying it at least 30 minutes before you leave home. Moving on, do not limit sunscreen to your face, but apply it on how hands, legs arms, and feet.

9.  Apply Face Mask

There are numerous face masks that you can make at home to have glowing skin in winter. We will have come up with the best one for you. All you have to do is blend oatmeal in milk and make a paste. Add some drops of honey and mix it again. Now apply it on your face and keep it until it gets dry. Finally, wash your face with mild/lukewarm water. This facial mask will give an instant glow to your skin and you can apply this in winter.

Moreover, you can also apply ripened papaya on your face and neck and wash it with cold water after keeping it for 5 to 10 minutes. Adding on, an aloe vera mask is best for glowing skin. Mix honey and aloe vera well to make a paste. Then, put it on your face and wash it after keeping it for at least 20 minutes.

10.  Increase Your Water Intake

This is one of the most essential tips for glowing and radiant skin. In winter, most of us drink less water because we don’t feel thirsty and we prefer to take hot beverages such as coffee, tea, hot chocolate, etc. However, our body needs the same water intake throughout our lives, which is 8 to 15 glasses of water. If we do not drink enough water, our skin will get dry and lose moisture.

Our body loses water even in winter, in the same way it loses moisture. You should increase your water intake in winter as it removes all the toxins from your body and retains moisture in your skin. Hence, increase your water intake if you want glowing and radiant skin in winter.


In order to have glowing and gleaming skin in winter, you should follow the above-mentioned tips and guidelines. Moreover, it is effective if you incorporate using skin products and home remedies to have luminous and flawless skin in winter. As mentioned earlier, it is of utmost importance to keep your skin moisturized and hydrated for a glowing and radiant look. If you do not keep your skin moisturized and hydrated, and keep on using skin products, trust me you will never achieve the desired results. Go ahead with these tips and tricks and flaunt your glowing skin in winter.
