Taking care of your skin is very important in winters. During winter most of the people loses the glow on their skin due to the harsh weather outside which makes our skin dry and look dull. Having a healthy skin in winters is a blessing and taking perfect care of your skin is an art. Winters damage our skin. Buying lotions for dry skin will help but what actually will help you is written below.
Keep Yourself Hydrated
We usually drink less water during winters. We actually don’t feel like drinking water because it is already very cold outside. Drinking water will help your skin not lose moisture at the time of low humidity. It’s better to drink warm water throughout the day. You can also have lemon tea or ginger tea.
Use cream based cleanser
There are many chemicals present in the cleansers which do not prevent our skin from roughness and damaging. These chemicals do not prevent our skin from dryness because they strip away all the natural oils present in our skin. Cream based cleaners will help you to keep your skin moisturized after cleaning your skin.
It is the process of removing dead skin cells present on the outermost surface of the skin. Removing the dry, dead skin cells will also help you to regenerate new ones. There are number of benefits of exfoliating your skin during winter. You have to use a scrub for exfoliating your skin. You should exfoliate your skin 2-3 times a week. It will help your skin to look it’s best. Exfoliate your skin once a week if you have sensitive skin.
Do not have long hot water bath
During winter, we all love to bath with hot water but it is not at all recommended. When it is cold outside, you should not bath with hot water. Doing this will dehydrate your skin and will also strip away the natural oils present in your skin.
Moisturize your skin
Moisturizing your skin will help you to regain all the important hydrating oils lost earlier during face wash or while bathing. Choose your moisturizer very carefully. You should rathar use oil based moisturizer than using a water based moisturizer. Use a moisturizer immediately after bathing or a face wash. You should not forget moisturizing your hands and feet also. You can also use coconut oil as your moisturizer if you are out of your body lotions.
