Keep Your Skin Healthy in Winter
Every season has its own skin woes. And winter is no different. Many of us face common skin problems like dry, patchy skin in the winters. While going to a salon once in a while gives you relief, it is not practical to go to a salon all the time. So here are some everyday tips to keep your skin glowing and radiant this winter. Read on…
#1 WATER IS THE KEY
Most of us tend to reduce our water intake in winters, and switch to caffeine instead. It may not be apparent but your skin will show signs of dehydration even in winters, if you do not drink plenty of water. Make sure you have 8 glasses of water in a day to keep your skin radiant. You can have the water warm or cold-its your call.
It may seem like you do not need to exfoliate as frequently as you did in summers, since there is not much sweat coming out. But the need is very much there. Exfoliate twice a week to get rid of dead skin cells that take away your skin’s natural look.
#3 MOISTURIZE WELL
Our skin tends to get extremely dry in the harsh winters. Use a good moisturizer on your face as well as your hands and neck to retain the softness of your skin. Also apply a gentle lip balm on your lips, as you do not want chapped lips.
#4 BRING IN THE SANITIZER
Since the skin is already so dry, washing it again and again is not such a good idea. Keep a sanitizer handy with you whenever you feel your face is getting oily. Rub it off with a tissue after you’ve applied it. You can also use wet tissues. But don’t wash your face more than 2 times a day.
#5 FEET ARE IMPORTANT
Do not focus all your attention on your face and leave out other body parts. Your feet are extremely sensitive in winters, and most of us tend to ignore them. Apply lemon on your feet every night and wash it off with lukewarm water. You can also use pumice stone for scrubbing your feet. Not doing this might lead to bacterial growth and smelly feet.
So there you go. 5 simple and easy tips for you to maintain that glow throughout the harsh winter weather. These are some easy skin hacks that you can do at home, without going to the salon. Happy winters!
