The dry season is fully upon us, and to beat the woes of the season, there is always the need for hydration and the need for the hydration to last. The first way to beat dry chapped lips, brittle hair, flaky scalp, and dry ashy skin is to stock up on heavy-duty moisturisers for the skin and hair, a good moisture-holding shampoo and conditioner to keep the strand healthy, including hair mask to help the hair gain back a week of moisture loss due to work life and the secret skincare product for the winter season? – hair and body oil.
Having invested in all the needed beauty products to nourish and protect the skin, without a good body oil and hair oil, the moisture can be lost before the end of the day, that’s why the secret to surviving the dry season is investing in a good essential oil that you can use as the final step in your beauty routine. Oils are very good at sealing moisture into the skin and scalp hence leading to well-hydrated and nourished hair. Oil helps your skin and scalp to hold on to moisture for a longer time.
Aside from the skin and scalp, the lips are an important part of our body too and thus need to be looked after as well, so investing in a lip mask to keep them supple and hydrated is the way to go. It’s good to know that excessive scrubbing is not needed in the Winter season, so as to avoid drying the skin, gentle exfoliation like the use of gentle AHA, BHA, PHA, and Glycolic toners are just enough to keep the dead skin away in the winter season, and can be used as the third step in our beauty routine either on the face or the whole body.
With this being said, what are the trending ones right now? well, the list is long but it’s good to know trendy beauty products are not what matters, but their efficacy, which is what makes them trends. These beauty products I believe will help you to achieve that final beauty goal you have in mind, be it fuller hair, or smooth skin, shrinking the size of your pores if you have textured skin, or reducing your oil production if you have oily skin, you surely will be making the right investment for your beauty look this season.
Finally, It’s not so much into building a whole beauty product arsenal because you most likely have the basics, but more of adding a bit here and there to help meet your needs in the season.
