The wind blowing in winter absorbs the moisture of the skin and makes it dull and dry. Know some tips that will keep your skin glowing.
With the arrival of winter, the common problem of women is dull and dry skin, the main reason for which is dry air. Means a lack of moisture in the environment around you. Dry air sucks the moisture out of your skin and makes it dull and dry.
Here are some simple tips that will take care of your skin in these winters and give it moisture and glow-
1 Take a shower in lukewarm water daily and dry the skin by patting it with a towel. Do not rub your skin.
2 Apply a cream-based moisturizer all over your body immediately after a shower when the skin is moist. For added protection choose a moisturizer with shea butter or cocoa.
3 By the way, to keep your skin moist and soft, put a few drops of olive or coconut oil in the bath water.
4 Use gentle shower gels and avoid harsh and highly perfumed soaps.
5 You may have to exfoliate your skin once in a few weeks to remove dead cells from the skin.
To avoid chapped lips, keep applying lip balm on them regularly. Do not make the mistake of moistening the lips with your saliva, as this will make them worse. There is also an old and home remedy - mix a few drops of olive oil in honey and apply it on your lips and keep them moist.
Wear gloves while doing household chores. Especially when you are using detergent etc. By doing this you will be able to save your hands from getting rough. Apart from this, apply a good hand cream on your hands 2-3 times a day after finishing household chores.
8 Heels get cracked easily in the winter season. Therefore, to remove dead skin, use exfoliating from time to time, and after that apply petroleum jelly or glycerin-based cream, which contains urea or lactic acid. You can apply foot cream every day at night and wear cotton socks on top.
9 Massage your hair and body with lukewarm oil once a week. Use olive or coconut oil for this.
10 Apply sunscreen on your face and hands for half an hour before going out in the sun. If you have to stay outside for a long time, reapply sunscreen after 3-4 hours.
11 Drink plenty of water even in winter.
12 Avoid harsh peels, masks, toners, astringents, or any other skin or hair styling products that have high alcoholic content. Because when the alcohol evaporates, it also takes away the moisture of the skin.
13 You can also use one more homemade thing in winter. Mix avocado with a few drops of olive oil or curd, add ground almonds, and rub this mixture all over your body before bath. Wash it off after 20 minutes and then take a bath.
14 It is important to understand that even cheap products can work as well as expensive products. What matters is how your skin reacts to the product and how you feel with it, not how much money you spend.
15 Visiting a dermatologist at least once is also a good way. After analyzing your skin type, the specialist gives skincare advice, removes disorders, and tells you what kind of products you should use for your skin.
