What should you do in winter to protect your skin?

  • Start of by avoiding very long and hot showers. In spite of being very appealing after a long, hard day, all it will do is dry out your skin and make you even flakier. A short luke warm bath will do wonders in keeping your skin hydrated and you’ll save a bundle on heavy creams and moisturizers.
  • Pamper you skin with a little coconut oil before bath to heal dryness and chaps. Use a creamy soap that renders that extra suppleness to your skin.
  • Use the paste of ground green gram powder instead of soap to work your way to a soft and supple skin.
  • Moisturizers and cold creams are a must in the winters. Apply some good cold cream on your face before going to bed. Moisten your skin with a good moisturizer or a creamy hand and body lotion..
  • The skin on your face is thinner than the rest of your body so apart from a good moisturizer, sunscreen is a must. Even though it’s cold the suns UV rays still cause damage.
  • Add a few drops of oil to the water that you are using to bath. This will help retain the moisture lost when bathing. Avoid using very hot water during winter as it can decrease the natural oils of your skin. Instead shorten your bath time.
