Beauty Guide

This winter is all about radiance and style!

As the climate changes from warm summer to cool winter, it’s important to take care of your skin, body, and hair. During these colder months, your skin, body, and hair face tough conditions that can make them dry and prone to irritation. To avoid this, you can update your beauty routine with hydrating serums, gentle exfoliants, hair strengtheners, and richer moisturizers to protect against the cold weather.

Here is KHAMSA‘s ultimate beauty guide for a radiant look during these chilly winter months.

For Your Skin

Over time, seasons have been synonymous with change. With dropping temperatures and drier air, skin tends to lose its radiance and moisture. Despite the dedicated efforts and optimistic aspirations of skincare enthusiasts, the condition of the skin is often influenced by topical solutions. Regardless of the season, moisturizing is an important step in your beautifying process.

CeraVe Face and Body Cream is a versatile and affordable moisturizer, which provides the skin with three crucial ceramides and hyaluronic acid. This mild daily moisturizer offers 24-hour relief for dry skin and is suitable for use anywhere on the body. The formula absorbs quickly, leaving no greasy residue, making it ideal for cold weather as it imparts a moisturizing and protective layer to the skin.

Playing a crucial role in the routine are eye creams. Designed specifically for the delicate under-eye area, these moisturizing and hydrating serums are different from your regular face moisturizer to avoid the risk of irritation. It’s important to note that eye creams vary in their formulations, addressing specific concerns with different combinations of ingredients. When selecting an eye cream, it’s advisable to identify your specific needs and choose products with ingredients that target those concerns.

The Cetaphil Hydrating Eye Gel Cream uses hyaluronic acid and ceramides to deeply hydrate the skin, along with marine and botanical ingredients to reduce dark circles. It’s a budget-friendly choice that covers all the essentials: hydration, brightening, depuffing, an easy-to-use applicator, and it’s ophthalmologist-tested.
