Winter is a season where in our skin needs a lot of care and attention. If we avoid taking care of our skin during winter, our skin will become prone to wrinkles, ageing and a lot of skin damage. Cold winds irritate and chap the surface vessels of the skin and the natural production of oils slow down. Following are the specific ways to care for your skin in winter:
Give up all drying agents like astringents and soaps. Instead use a moisterizer if your skin is oily and gets dry in winter.
Those with dry skin should make it a habit to cream face and hands before going to bed. As dry skin is prone to wrinkles so it acts as an anti ageing formula.
In winter your skin loses water and essential oils. You can replenish them by adding a few drops of oil to water while bathing. It will nourish the skin and is a very good home remedy.
Don't bath before going out or immediately upon returning. Any sudden temperature changes will disturb the moisture balance of your skin.
It is always best and recommended to wash face with warm water.
For lips use vaseline or cream before applying lipstick. It will heal the chapped lips by providing sufficient moisture to the skin.
For hairs, use gentle shampoo and conditioner. It is always best to use herbal products as chemicals damage the hairs.
