Wondering how we can care for our skin during the harsh winter months? The cold outdoor climate and dry indoor air can leave the skin feeling dry, dull and flaky. Let’s discover the best tips from the experts on how to care for your skin during the harsh weathers.
1. PROTECT YOUR SKIN WITH AN SPF BARRIER
Not many would think that an SPF would be needed during the winter months, however it has a use all year round. Just because it is cold outside, it doesn’t mean the sun cannot affect your skin! Many SPF products also block out pollution in the air and have extra hydrating properties, meaning it is a skin care essential no matter the weather, not to mention UVA rays are reflective from different conditions, especially snow.
2. TREAT THE SKIN FROM WITHIN!
Increase your water intake – keeping the body hydrated from the inside, will certainly reflect the results on the outside. Water plays such an important role to the human body.
3. REGULAR FACIAL/BODY TREATMENTS
At Le Mare spas, we offer a vast selection of treatments suitable for everyone. To prevent your skin from drying out and becoming flaky from the harsh weathers, we have various Facial treatments by Decleor, a selection of body treatments with skin peeling and hydrating body wraps and even foot care with our classic pedicure to hydrate and soften cracked heels.
Our spa favourite is the Divine Nutrition Facial Therapy by Decleor; The end of dry, flaky skin! Our ultra-nourishing facial deeply soothes, repairs and renews.

By locking-in moisture, complexions are also strengthened against wind, rain and cold making it ideal for anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors. Even the driest complexions are left supremely supple, comfortable and satin smooth.
4. AVOID BATHING FOR TOO LONG
Keep your skin’s natural moisture by avoiding bathing/showering for too long and avoid very hot water temperatures. This can cause stripping the skin’s natural oils which are protecting your skin.
5. YOUR SKIN CARE ROUTINE
Of course, adopting a skincare regime with changing up a few of your regular skincare products to help tackle winter skin. A creamy cleanser and an oil-based moisturizer will make a huge difference to nourishing your skin. Another tip is to sleep with a creamy mask overnight for maximum results.
