Skin CareUncategorized

After scorching heat of summer, winter is a bliss with cold weather and the time to enjoy hot cocoa. However, winter is also the time your skin starts losing its softness and becomes dull, dry and cracked. You need to take care of your skin as much as you do in summer. Here are few steps you can follow to keep your skin healthy and glowing.

Hydration and Healthy Eating

Moisturise Your Skin

It is important to moisturise your skin for hydration and keeping it healthy. Opt for an oil-based moisturizer since oil-based moisturizers are more hydrating and keep the skin hydrated for long. Also, use a good night cream to have soft skin the next day. The same goes for the rest of your body.

Use Sunscreen

Sunscreen is not only important in summer, but also in winter when the sun can cause more damage to your skin. So, use a broad spectrum sunscreen and apply it half hour before you go out.

Use Oils for added Benefits

Using oils for your hair once or twice a week also help your hair health and keep them dandruff free.

Use Lip Scrub

High temperature indoors using heaters can strip your skin of the humidity and moisture it needs. Keep the temperature on low and cover yourself up with warm clothes to stay protected from the cold. Use lukewarm water to wash your face and for bath, the water should not be too hot. Immediately after taking a bath apply moisturizer to lock in moisturiser.
