If you’ve somehow not noticed the ever shortening days and dropping temperatures, let us make it clear – winter is coming. And whilst that means digging out your warmest jumpers, gloves and coats, the other seasonal change you should be making is to your skincare. Whether you need to switch out just a product or two, or find yourself needing a whole skincare regime overhaul, with Zilch you can buy now and pay later – and your skin will thank you for it.
Winter can wreak havoc on your skin. Between the dropping temperatures and central heating drying your skin out, tight, dry skin and a dull complexion seem unavoidable. The key is to switch to products that not only provide your skin with the extra moisture that it needs, but also protects it from the elements.
Zilch’s round up of our favourite winter skin saviours are below – from masks to exfoliators and everything in between, now is the perfect time to up your self-care without paying for it all now.
The first step in every good skincare routine, you may be surprised to know your cleanser is worth switching up as the seasons change. Look to add to bag (and Zilch) a balm or oil based cleanser – it’ll be a lot more gentle on your skin in the cooler temperatures.
A good winter moisturiser is an absolute saving grace in winter. Even those with an oily or combination skin type will find themselves reaching for a richer, rejuvenating face cream – just make sure to stick to the right kind for your skin type. Here are Zilch’s favourite winter moisturisers.
The words ‘face masks’ may have taken on a whole new meaning in 2020, but it’s the self care variety that we’re interested in when it comes to saving your complexion this season. An overnight mask is a great way to lock in extra moisture, although they may be best to avoid if you have particularly oily skin. Split your payments in 4 and treat yourself to the below.
It may seem counter intuitive to be exfoliating in already harsh weather conditions, but getting rid of dead skin will allow all your other products to really absorb and for more radiant skin. When choosing what product to buy now (and pay later), look for a brand with minimal alcohol to prevent drying out the skin further.
Toner might not be a usual step in your skincare regime, but adding it in winter will have your skin thanking you. Applying it after cleansing and before moisturiser, a toner will help build up skin barrier and help with absorption of your other products. Add the below products to your bag (and your regime) with Zilch’s zero interest payments.
