Winter skin care
While the onset of winter transports you to a wonderland that is cherished with frosty mornings and toasty mugs, It wreaks havoc to your skin
This winter, don’t let this weather drive you away from your soft, clear and hydrated skin, follow these tips and retain the moisture your skin deserves.
Winters are often synonymous to dry skin and to prevent that, not only do you need to moisturize your skin regularly but doing it after you have just taken a bath is of the utmost importance as your skin is still moist and applying the right kind of moisturizer will keep your skin supple and soft all day long. Washing your face with hot water damages the skin causes dehydration and breakage. Using water at room- temperature to clean your face is the best solution to such a problem. You should also opt for an oil-based moisturizer rather than a water-based one because it helps retain more moisture.
Keep away from foam
While washing and cleansing your face is necessary, these friends turn foes during winters. Any foamy face washes and face cleansers are responsible for causing irritation and they strip the good oils away from the skin. Replace your water/foam based cleanser with an oil based one.
We consume less water in the winters as we lose less water but that is essentially what harms our skin the most and makes it prone to dryness. Drink as much water as you can and keep your skin hydrated.
Drinking a glass of warm water that has some lemon juice and honey works wonders for our skin as this concoction regulates blood circulation which gives our skin a healthy and fresh glow.
Protect your skin
Protect your skin from the cold wind and air by covering it up. Winter sun is as harmful as the summer sun, so do not leave your house without a sunscreen that provides good SPF.
Consuming a bowl of fresh, seasonal fruits in the morning gives that quintessential rosy pink tint to our cheeks. Fruits like strawberries, Cranberries, bananas, Custard Apples, Apples, Oranges, Grapes, Pears, Guavas, Pineapples and Kiwis. These fruits are high in antioxidants and help you achieve that perfect winter pinkness.
