The crisp air, the golden leaves – there’s no denying the beauty of an Australian winter. But as the temperature drops, our skin and makeup routines need a little tweaking. Here are some tips to keep your skin healthy and your makeup looking flawless throughout the cooler months:

Skincare Savvy:

  • Hydration is Key: Colder weather can cause dryness and irritation. Combat this by switching to a richer moisturiser. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and shea butter for intense hydration.
  • Exfoliate Regularly: Dead skin cells can build up and make your skin look dull. Exfoliate 1-2 times a week to promote cell turnover and reveal a healthy glow. Opt for gentle exfoliating products as harsh scrubs can further irritate dry skin.
  • Embrace Facial Oils: Facial oils are your winter skin’s best friend. They lock in moisture and create a protective barrier against the elements. Apply a few drops of facial oil to damp skin after cleansing and moisturising for an extra boost of hydration.
  • SPF All Year Round: The sun’s UV rays are still harmful in winter, so don’t ditch the sunscreen! Apply a broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen daily, even on cloudy days. Look for a lightweight, oil-free formula that won’t clog your pores.
  • Lip Love: Dry, cracked lips are a common winter woe. Keep your lips soft and supple with a good lip balm. Apply lip balm throughout the day, especially before bed, to prevent dryness.

Makeup Magic:

  • Base it Right: As your skin might be drier, opt for a dewy foundation instead of a matte one. A dewy foundation will add a healthy glow and prevent your skin from looking cakey.
  • Creamy is Dreamy: Swap out your powder products for creamier alternatives. Cream blushes, bronzers, and highlighters blend better on dry skin and create a more natural look.
  • Embrace Bold Lips: Winter is a great time to experiment with bolder lip colours. Deep reds, berries, and plums look stunning against pale winter skin.
  • Waterproof is Your Friend: Rainy days are a part of winter in Australia. Use waterproof mascara and eyeliner to prevent smudging.
  • Don’t Forget Your Brows: Well-groomed brows frame your face and can instantly elevate your look. Use a brow pencil or brow powder to fill in sparse areas and define your brows.

Bonus Tip:

Apply your makeup after your skin has had some time to absorb your moisturiser and sunscreen. This will help your makeup go on smoother and last longer.

Additional Tips for Different Regions:

  • For Perth and Brisbane: While these cities experience milder winters, incorporating a hydrating serum into your routine can be beneficial.
  • For Melbourne and Sydney: As these cities experience harsher winters, consider using a humidifier at night to add moisture to the air and combat dryness.
  • For Alpine Regions: For those enjoying the snowy slopes, don’t forget to pack a lip balm with SPF to protect your lips from the harsh sun and wind.
