Ahh... We are into winter!!! With celebrations like weddings, parties, Christmas, New Year, winter can be fun for us, while our skin is not fond of. Freezing cold temperature and harsh dry weather sucks every bit of moisture from our skin. It’s just few weeks that winter has knocked the door, and I have already started getting rough skin, lifeless and chapped lips.

DRINK PLENTY OF WATER ALL DAY LONG
We are likely to drink less water during winter days as hot coffee or hot chocolate are comfortable those days. But our skin needs nutrition and nourishment inside out. Plenty of water and a good proportion of green veggies and fruits in our diet help us with the necessary care.
Let me tell one more. Add a tablespoon of lemon water into a glass of warm water and drink early morning every day. It refreshes and also hydrates our body giving skin a glowing radiance.
YOUR SHOWER SHOULD BE WARM, NOT HOT
Hot water might be soul soothing but it also damages skin from the core. Hot water strips out needed moisture from our skin making it dull and rough. It is best to use lukewarm water all for shower, face washes or hand washes.
USING GENTLE CLEANSER - GO ORGANIC
Daily use of harsh chemical winter care products or cleansers damages our skin. Choosing solutions from nature is the best you can do to your skin this winter. Pamper your skin all organic. Try Jojoba Oil or Olive Oil to cleanse your skin. Natural and organic oils will not only clean the dirt and oil but will also moisturize and hydrate.
IMMEDIATE AFTER SHOWER MOISTURIZATION
Giving back your skin the needed moisture is must after wash. Apply a good amount of moisturizer every time after shower, face wash or hand wash. To prevent your skin come in the contact of the dry air, the best is to keep the moisturizer bottle at your sink or inside the bathroom.
SAY NO TO SUN RAYS
Winter sun damages your skin as much as summer sun does.More than that, winter brings alone the cold dry air to add to the damage.Covering most of your body with warm clothes would help you in holding skin’s moisture.
BRING HOME A HUMIDIFIER
As mentioned above the indoor warmth is dry and harmful to our skin in parallel. If you don’t have a humidifier and you’re tensed about your dry skin this winter, this is time you should bring home once. Use it in your bedroom at night and restore skin’s natural moisture.
