How to transition from a Summer to Winter Skincare Routine

How to transition from a Summer to Winter Skincare Routine

As the days become shorter and our sun kissed summer skin begins to fade- it's time to not only transition your wardrobe, but your skincare routine too! 

Now that autumn is in full swing, it's time to think about restoring sun damaged skin and finding balance from over-produced oils, caused by hot-heat and open pores.  
While the thought of brisk mornings and colder nights can be refreshing from a long-outed heatwave, this change in climate is also one of the main causes for dry skin, which consequently can leave you lost on what moisturisers and products you should be using within your skincare routine, especially when you are transitioning from summer to winter.
But wait, never fear maskers! Here at Oh K! we've simplified the search for Korean skin care products that not only get rid of the appearance of sun damaged skin on your face but also provide the dreamy moisturised and hydrated skin we all long for - right through until spring. (YAY!)


How to begin the skin care routine transition

The very first step to transitioning your shelfie is to introduce fast-acting antioxidants into your routine.

But what are antioxidants and WHY do we need them?

Antioxidants remove potentially damaging oxidizing agents living in our bodies- think UV rays and free radicals! Layering your skincare is one of the best things for transitioning from summer to winter. Use serums underneath your face creams and begin to use richer moisturizers and opt-out of the lightweight formulas that are popular in the summertime.

Next, hydration, hydration, hydration!

We use for: Reversing the premature-ageing effects caused by UV Rays

Not only should you aim to be drinking 2-3 litres of water a day, but you should reach for products your skin needs to drink up too! Hyaluronic acid is one of the best ingredients to look for in products and is causing a lot of buzz among skincare junkies.

So what is the secret? Hyaluronic acid has the ability to hold 1000 times its weight in water and acts like a sponge that pulls water in. Think a more plumped and youthful appearance. Hyaluronic acid is actually a naturally occurring substance in our bodies, however, as we age our bodies begin to slow down the production of HA, losing our youthful and plumped skin. Adding in products with HA not only have hydration benefits but help combat the signs of ageing.

The Oh K! Hyaluronic Acid Hydrogel Mask is a super nourishing pick me up. Hyaluronic acid hydrates for a plumper-looking appearance, while skin-loving amino acids, vitamin B3 and sea kelp extracts help skin look brighter and more youthful. The iridescent two-part mask is made of the essence itself, making it super intensive, locking in moisture and maximizing absorption.

Follow with a session of exfoliation

We use for: Reducing clogged pores and unwanted oils generated by heat.

 

Exfoliation is key to a 'Sok-Gwang' finish! When our skin becomes drier we actually need to exfoliate. This aids in unblocking pores and removing dead skin from the top layers of our face. Other major benefits of exfoliation include tightening pores, combating the ageing process and speeding up the process of cell renewal.

The unique formula in the Oh K! Bubble Sheet Mask reacts with the oxygen in the air to form tiny bubbles when you place the mask on your face. The Bubble Sheet's reaction works to gently exfoliate skin, helping to create a smooth and radiant complexion! The foaming bubbles work alongside willow bark extract, cinnamon bark and soybean to leave skin with a "gwang" glow.

 

Lastly, Keep on Glowing!

We use for: Extending the longevity of a tan

 

You may no longer be soaking up every last bit of that summer sun with your best friends, but that doesn't mean you can't prolong that summer glow through the fall! Swap out your typical tanning lotions and reach for products with antioxidant-rich Vitamin C to help prolong your tan and boost radiance!

The Oh K! Vitamin C Watermelon Sheet Mask is revitalising hydration hit for anyone seeking brighter, summer-ready skin! Pink tencel sheet mask formulated with watermelon and vitamin C to brighten and hydrate the skin. 
Fibre sheet masks create a barrier on the skin to prevent the formula from evaporating and are designed to deliver a supercharged dose of skin hydrating ingredients.
