The winters are here and with that so is rough skin. We often tend to ignore our health and especially our skin but during winters we need to take extra care of it. People who live in dry cities must continue reading this article because dry and chapped skin is not something you want to face this winter.
Today we will list 8 tips and tricks that you can use to keep your skin moisturized and smooth.
- Moisturizing your skin day and night
Low temperature and cold conditions can strip your skin of its natural moisture so make sure to follow your morning skincare routine in the morning and at night. If you are tired to do it at night, then you can simply use a moisturizing make-up remover that will do the job for you.
- Wear SPF
Harmful UV rays from the sun can affect your skin drastically especially when it snows and the sunlight glares right at you. You can buy a tinted moisturizer with SPF to use as a foundation.
- Invest in a humidifier
If you are using a heater then there is a high chance that all the moisture in the air disappears. A humidifier is a great tool to make the dry environment in your home much moister.
- Drink a lot of water
Drinking water is essential 24×7 all 365 days of your life, however, don’t replace your 8 glasses of water a day with hot chocolate milk, coffees and lattes. It is fundamental to stay hydrated in the winters.
- Avoid hot showers and baths
No matter how much you love hot showers in the cold winters but that can take away all the moisture from your skin. So make sure to keep the hot shower baths to only 10 minutes and not use boiling water for the shower, mid to lukewarm water is a good option.
- Keep your skin wrapped up
Yes, keeping your skin covered with a scarf when you go out is as important as it is in the summertime to avoid windburns (sunburns in summers).
- Keep your lips moisturized
Winters are incomplete with lip balms and vaselines. Sometimes lip balms don’t do the job to keep your lips moisturized, so to peel dead skin, you can use a clean toothbrush and gently remove the dry skin and then use a lip balm to lock the moisture in.
- Use good facial oils
In summers you avoid oil-based products but in the winter they do wonders to your skin. You can use a radiance-boosting facial thrice a week to replenish your skin and keep it fresh.
So, these are a few tips that you can adopt to keep your skin fresh and moisturised in Winters.
