Dry and flaky skin is very common in winters, Here's how you can make it soft and supple, read on.
We all love winter mornings as they are calm, chilly, and have a warmth of its own but we certainly do not like how our skin changes according to the weather and gets super dry and dull. Here are a few tips that may come handy to cure that rough skin.
CTM for the win
You don't need too many products to get healthy skin, just stick to your daily skincare routine that's cleansing, toning, and moisturising. You might add some hydrating serum or facial oils with targeting ingredients to look glowy.
Not so hot shower
Do not use hot water for bathing or a head bath as it makes both skin and hair dry. Rather go for a lukewarm water bath.
Winters are the best months for eating and hogging on all those green veggies and colourful fruits. Eat them all, and do not stick to a junk diet as it will spoil your skin in a long run.
Hydrations is the key
Nothing beast dry skin more than hydration. Does not matter how much you slather your skin with cream or moisturiser if it is not healthy and moist from within. Steam your face and make sure to drink a good amount of water, soups, juices, and hydrating drinks throughout the day.
Nourish hands and feet
We often get careless when it comes to taking care of our hands and feet in winters. If nothing fancy just slather your body in almond or coconut oil and make sure you are all mosturised. Wearing a hand cream or a foot cream is also recommended.
We can't stress enough about the effects of exercising. It boosts blood flow and oxygen supply to the skin making it naturally healthy and dewy.
Exfoliation, but not too much
Too much exfoliation irks dry skin and makes it patchy. A good body scrub is important at least once a week to get rid of dry skin and dead partciles, but do not forget to moisturise post that.
Sunblock is a staple
Many people miss out on wearing sunblock or sunscreen owing to wintry days, but that UV rays are not going to spare you. Even if you decide to soak in that sun do not forget your sunscreen as it will protect your skin from damage and act as a shield.
Know your product
Consult a dermatologist before changing your skincare products. Use only those products that are your holy grail and works perfectly for your skin.
