4 Easy tips to prepare your skin for winter season- By Ekta Sahu
Attention everyone! Never ever give up on yourself whatever it is -you’re hectic day’s schedule, your family responsibilities, your messed-up relationships, and your office lifestyle that might reason you extreme level of stress at times. But the most essential part is to always make time for you.
If you don’t take proper care of your skin in winter, you will have to deal with multiple skin-related problems. In order to avoid breakouts and skin cracking, look for cosmetic products with moisturizing ingredients like milk, honey, butter, or essential oils.
Sugar, alcohol and coffee intake promote inflammation and dehydrate your skin by depleting your body of vital nutrients. So, avoid them. You can still look good by drinking adequate amount of water throughout the day. Keep a toner handy to balance the PH level of your skin. Some toner/spray you can even apply on top of your make-up.
Hot water breaks down the lipid barriers in the skin. Stick to warm water. Instead, aim to take shorter baths using warm water. Ensure you pat the towel and don’t rub your skin dry. Apply body oil before the shower to keep the moisture and follow up with a body cream or a moisturizer after a shower while your skin is still damp to help the cream penetrate.
To maintain summer skin in the winter, it is essential to follow regular exfoliation for both your face and body. You may exfoliate more than usual, but you should do it once or twice a week at the maximum. Exfoliation can be used after cleanser, but before moisturizer, as it helps to remove dead skin and build up for smoother skin and clearer pores.
Well-balanced diet is essential
Best way to rejuvenate your skin is to consume fruits and apply a fruit mask. It is the best way to pamper your skin with pure stuff which is free of toxins or any chemicals. Eat a rainbow of colorful fruits like pomegranate, banana, watermelon, papaya, kiwi, oranges and apples for a good healthy glowing skin.
