4 Essential Tips for Healthy Skin During Winter

4 Essential Tips for Healthy Skin During Winter

November 29, 2019

Winter, bringing endless memories of cozy blankets and cups of hot chocolate, is definitely the best season of the year, wouldn't you agree? However, with the warm cuddles and sweater weather, it also brings rough, dry and flaky skin. While the frosty outdoors leave your skin raw, the toasty indoors leave your skin dry. Here are a few tips on how to treat your skin during winters -


  1. Stay Hydrated

    During the winter months, we tend to drink less water and more hot drinks like coffee or cocoa. Due to this, our skin does not get proper hydration. Moreover, the dry air from heaters installed in most homes and public places only exacerbates the dryness. At such times, it is imperative to ensure that your skin does not remain dry. A glass of warm water with a little bit of lemon is refreshing, keeps you warm and gives your skin the much needed hydration boost.


  2. Take Lukewarm Showers

    The winter season will see you enjoying a long hot shower or bath. While this may feel extremely cozy, it strips essential oils away from your skin leaving it exposed to the harsh conditions. Additionally, excessively hot water even dehydrates your skin! Whenever possible, choose a lukewarm shower or use lukewarm water to just wash your hands or face. This keeps the skin’s natural oil barrier intact and your skin protected.


  3. Moisturize Daily

    We know how important it is to keep your skin hydrated during the cold season. A hydration mask is an excellent option. It gives your skin a hydration boost in a short span of time, locking in the moisture and keeping your skin supple and smooth. Other options include lotions and moisturizers. These are also used to lock moisture into the skin to combat the cold weather which would otherwise leave your skin raw and dry. The best time to use these products is immediately after a bath. While the skin is still damp, these products help to seal the dampness into the skin.


  4. Exfoliate Your Skin

    It is common knowledge that the cold months bring dry, flaky skin and this layer of dead cells prevents moisture from entering your skin. While exfoliation may be the last thing on your mind, it does have a number of benefits. Not only does it remove the dry, dead cells, but also helps with the regeneration of new ones. This helps your skin breathe and allows the moisture to settle in properly. A good Peeling & Exfoliating Foot Mask, exfoliating scrubs and body washes will do the trick.

In addition to these tips, consuming a lot of seasonal fruits and veggies will give your skin the much-needed nutrients to stay healthy and youthful during the cold weather.
