Winter wind makes skin dull, dry, itchy and irritated. The cold air takes away the natural oils from your skin, leaving it dry and itchy. So, it is very necessary to take proper care of skin to protect it from winter dryness.
Here are some skin care tips for you that will make your skin soft and glowy even in winter.
Use lukewarm water
During winter we prefer to take hot shower. Hot water shower during winter may please and provide you relaxation for some time, but if you love your skin avoid them. Instead of hot water use lukewarm water for shower it will prevent your skin from winter dryness. Hot showers dry your skin quickly, and if you do not moisturize it immediately, your skin can face cracks and winter eczema.
Hydrate your body and skin properly
During winter also, it is very important to keep yourself hydrated from inside. No matter whether you are inside your home or outside, air is drier in winter and it affects your body. You can keep your body hydrated by drinking lots of water. Eating foods high in water content can also help in hydrating your skin from the inside out. Take apples, watermelon, green leafy veggies etc.
Choose perfect skin care products for winter
Products that make your skin happy during summer can’t make you feel the same during winter. Like your body needs different clothes in different seasons, your skin too needs different products for different seasons. Use mild skin care products, choose cleanser that contain moisturizers, if you have acne or breakouts, prefer products containing ceramides, hyaluronic acid, hydration serums, and glycerin it will help your skin to stay soft, glowing and healthy during these days.
We often forget to help the skin slough off dead cells in the winter, particularly on our hands. Yet moisture can’t help much if the dead cells are too plentiful. Get an exfoliating mask and use it on your face and your hands, as well as gently on your lips, then immediately apply moisturizer and you can see the smooth difference. Exfoliating body washes are also helpful in the winter season.
