For those of you who live in or are visiting a part of the world where winters are freezing and snowy, then the song lyric "Oh, the weather outside is frightful" can be all too true! The hostile mixture of cold, dehydrating air and the skin-distressing fall in temperature takes a toll, and not only on dry skin; but these harsh conditions disrupt the beauties with combination and oily skin, too!

Regardless of skin type, winter is the season which makes most of us revise and adjust our skincare routines. But, if you have combination to oily skin, you worry (and rightly so) more than the ones with dry skin since using richer, emollient moisturizers will make your oily areas even more oily.

No more worrying! Slowing down winter’s impact doesn’t need to clog pores or make skin feel greasy especially when you know the type of products you should use. Read on to know more about the secret to a rosy glowing complexion in winters.


  1. Use the right cleanser: Even when you don’t sweat much in winters, the skin needs to be cleansed regularly as in summers. However, you need to swap the old cleanser with one that contain moisturisers. Try Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser. Specially formulated for winters, its deep-cleansing clay purifies oily skin. This clay cleanser is water-soluble and combines ingredients like Sambucus, Ivy, Lemon, Kaolin and Green Clay to remove excess oils and refine the texture of your skin.


  1. Moisturise!: The warm touch of moisturiser is necessary for dry and depressing for your beautiful skin in winters. However, women with oily skin hesitate using moisturisers due to the regretful greasiness that comes after it. Try using moisturisers that are water based but penetrate deep in the skin touching its deepest layers. Dermalogica Moist is a light-weight moisturiser that sinks into your skin without making it feel oily.


  1. Exfoliate your skin: Chilly winters can tempt you into avoiding the daily skincare routine however, sticking to the weekly exfoliation routine can be very rewarding in the long run. You can maintain a healthy skin tone by cleaning and exfoliating your skin regularly. Adopt a regular routine and use a good cream based exfoliant that has minute granules enriched with moisture. By using it twice a week, you will achieve wonderful results.

Try Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant that dramatically improves skin texture with it’s two-in-one masque/exfoliation treatment.


  1. Stay hydrated: The importance of drinking water sufficiently cannot be stressed enough. Water helps you keep your skin hydrated and flushes out the toxins, bacteria from your skin’s pores and adds glow to your skin.
  2. Switch to oil-free makeup products: While buying foundation or loose powder, ensure you choose a liquid or cream based product that is oil-free and water-based. Regular makeup products contain natural oils that are not good for your skin. They block pores and lead to breakouts. Instead, go for powder-based products with a matte-effect as they tend to last longer.


  1. Moisturise overnight: Protect your hands and feet with a deep-conditioning night cream when you go to bed. Wearing gloves and socks can help to keep the moisture locked in. -- is one of the better products available that helps to moisturise your hands, feet and face while also making your overall skin tone more even!


7. Don’t skip the sun protection: The sun might seem weak but your skin is vulnerable to damage too! Sun protection is equally important in winters. Switch to sun blocks with moisturising properties that can serve both purposes. Try Calypso Sun Lotion SPF50. It  provides immediate protection from UV rays with an enhanced UVA/UVB filter system. The formula is easily applied and quickly absorbed giving deep and long lasting moisturisation.
