WINTER SKIN CARE - DRY COMBINATION SKIN


Winter has finally graced Mumbai. It’s getting quite chilly in the mornings and my skin has been dry overall for the past month. I always switch my skin care during winters. Don’t necessary switch all my products but adding more moisture to my dry-combination skin is a must.

I start off with my everyday face cleanser, the clean & clear pimple clearing face wash which I absolutely love. It doesn’t dry out my skin at all and leaves it feeling clean and fresh. It has been keeping my spots at bay which is a total bonus.

I never leave my house without sunscreen, be it any season of the year. My all time favourite is the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer dry touch sun-block SPF 50. This works for all skin types and does not leave a white cast on the skin. Absolutely love it.

This year my skin has been more dry than usual and the Ponds moisturising cold cream has been my saviour. It cleared all the dry patches and kept my skin moisturised for the whole day. It is slightly oily but it works well if you have dry patches or peeling skin on your face.

For body care I had been using the Body shop Fuji Green tea body lotion but by mid-day my skin would again become dry and hence I opted for the Nivea Smooth Milk Body Lotion. This works like a charm. It leaves my skin moisturised for the entire day without having to reapply every couple of hours.



For hands I absolutely love The Body Shop Honeymania hand cream. It smells delicious and keeps my hands free from dryness.

My evening routine includes two products which I switch as per my preference for that day. On days when my skin has been extremely dry, I use the L'Oreal extraordinary Boosting oil. Even though this is not specifically for night time, I prefer to use it at night so as to let my skin absorb it to the fullest. It makes my skin plump and fresh in the mornings.


On most nights I use the Innisfree Green tea sleeping pack. It’s a light moisturiser and it contains tiny white granules like a face scrub which dissolve as you gently massage it into your skin. I absolutely love this mask. It smells amazing and keeps my skin hydrated.

Overall, this routine has kept my skin moisturised and hydrated throughout the past month. My dry patches have also healed which is simply amazing. Glad to have found some gems right under my nose.

So, what products have been your skin saviours this winter?
