Winters can be a  very delightful season for hot and humid countries like India with all the cosy and chilly environment it develops which is very pleasant. However, winters also bring along many drawbacks along with it, especially for your skin. During these months, our skin tends to get dry and dull due to lack of moisture. Without immediate care, dry skin can lead to cracking and bleeding, and harsh winter wind makes the problem worse. It is a common misconception that individuals having an oily skin do not suffer from dryness during winter. Thus, proper care is important for individuals with both oily and dry skin tone.

Here are a few simple winter care tips for your face that you can follow to avoid excessive dryness and dead looking skin for dry and oily skin both.

  • ·       Adding fruits and fruit juices as well as Green Leafy Vegetables to your diet would prove to be very helpful as citrus fruit and dark, leafy greens are rich in Vitamin A, C, and E which help boost the body’s production of collagen, a protein that maintains skin and other connective tissues.

  • ·     Apply the petroleum jelly on the face, lips, hands, legs. Ithelps to moisturie your skin and protect you from any kind of harsh winter problems. The chapped lips are one of the problems in this winter. Apply the petroleum to the chapped lips. Use the lip scrubs for the lip care in the winter.

  • ·         Prefer not to indulge in long hot baths. The hot water would take out the moisture in the skin to turn it dry. Instead of those hot and long baths, choose lukewarm water to avoid stripping as many oils away from the skin.

  • ·       Try to cover the most of the body with the clothes to protect skin from cold winds. Also, don’t forget the sunscreen. Winter sun can be just as damaging as summer sun, so applying sunscreen lotion is a smart way to protect your skin.  

  • ·       Avoid heavy cheesy, fried and sugary foods in winter as this puts more pressure on your body to divert energy into breaking down and digesting.

  • ·         Dry skin can be fought effectively by using any natural moisturizer during winter. Switching to an oil-based moisturiser with natural ingredients is the wisest choice one can make to protect their skin. Moisturizers like Aloe vera have great moisturizing properties that help to fight dryness on the face and enhance its texture.  Make sure that your mosturizer is enriched with vitamin E, which is the best suited for an oily skin type.

  • ·    Dry skin loses a lot of moisture. Keep drinking water regularly to keep your body and skin hydrated. A little warm water with lemon can be very refreshing and hydrating at the same time. This will also ensure your skin remains glowing.
