Winters are here, which means beautiful weather, foggy sceneries, hot coffees and cosy blankets. The most chill scene of the year is here (in the literal sense) and this means, get all your cute and cosy clothing out and have the time of the year. However, between of this amazingness, there are certain things that can give you major mood swings and they are – dry skin, dry lips, dry hair and change in the bathing routine.
There are so many problems that one goes through in the winter session, but certain precautions and steps can help you in maintaining your winter happiness. In this article, I would give you some tips and tricks which would help you in having a healthy and supple skin, as well as winters.
1. How to Cure Dry Skin?
Try these steps to eliminate the dreadful flaky and dry skin.
- Keep yourself moisturised.
Make moisturiser your best friend during winter. Always keep in mind to moisturise your skin, the minute you step out of the washroom after having your bath. You will never have dry and flaky skin if you use this step religiously.
- Try different homemade solutions for curing the dry skin
There are many things that you can do in order to eliminate dry and flaky skin. Using honey on your face is one of the best examples. Honey helps in hydrating your skin, so massage honey onto face and let it sit on for about 20-40 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. Try using olive oil after the honey session of yours, as it helps in locking moisture into your skin.
2. Never Skip SPF.
Just because the sun isn’t too harsh in winter does not mean that you would skip sunscreen in this season. SPF is a gift to humankind as it protects our skin from harmful UV rays and keeps us looking younger. So, why will you not want to use it for every single day of your life? Give your skin the care and protection that it demands and needs.
3. Hydrate Your Lips.
Just as our skin turns dry, our lips do too. Actually, they are more susceptible to dryness because of winters. So, rehydrate them by applying lip balms and chapstick on regular basis. They keep the lips soft and supple, the best thing is to use lip balms with SPF in it. One thing for two benefits.
4. Keep an Eye on Your Bathing Schedule.
While hot baths and showers are some of the best things that one can have in winters, always try to limit the temperature of these baths. While hot water relaxes your body it also has the ability to turn your skin flaky. Try to moderate the temperature of the water, and always moisturise the minute you got out of the shower.
5. Hydrate Yourself From the Inside.
While moisturisers and creams are an essential part of your winter regime, you should always remember that water is also one of them. Drinking water after regular interval of time can do magic to your skin and your body. Drinking hot teas, that are high in antioxidants is also a great idea as they keep your body warm and at the same time, work their magic.
All these points can give you sure shot results and have been religiously followed by many. So, always keep these pointers in your mind and rule these winters, without any fuss about the dryness.
