As winter is just around the corner, the freezing breezes cause skin roughness, cracks, and dryness. The harsh weather of the cold season can be damaging, uncomfortable, and downright painful, so you need to put in some extra effort to keep your skin healthy and glowing. Here are the simple ways in which you can take care of your skin during the winter.
The cardinal rule of winter lip care is to keep your skin as hydrated as possible. Chapped lips in winter can be extremely painful during cold days but fortunately preventing them is not a difficult task. Apply a generous amount of lip balm that also contains SPF. Avoid constant licking of lips because it causes them to lose moisture and makes them dry.
In winter low humidity is most likely to strip our poor skin of its moisture. No matter how cold it is outside, don’t forget to drink at least 7-8 glasses of water throughout the day, we often forget to drink enough water but this can affect your skin adversely.
During winter many of us are dealing with flaky skin, while there is no permanent solution for it but just to avoid the roughness and dryness of the face there are plenty of pick me up masks readily available that work wonders to improve skin textures. The weather can be cruel but homemade masks give your skin a fresh look.
Usually, most of us don’t care about our feet as compared to our facial skin. Along with the face and hands, our feet also need good care. In the cold season try to keep greasing your feet with a lotion that contains petroleum jelly and glycerin. Use exfoliants to get the dead skin off periodically.
