NEW DELHI: Yay, it's sweater weather, but is your skin prepared for it? As the humidity drops, the air gets dry and so does your skin. In winters the moisture is drawn from your skin and so it requires additional care.
To treat winter skin and to provide rejuvenation during the season, one should opt for natural products, as they offer a variety of effective solutions to protect the skin and keep it moist, soft and smooth.
Ritika Jayaswal, CEO & Founder, Nourish Mantra an Ayurveda-inspired natural skincare brand brings you some tips and tricks to prep up your skin for the coming season.
Choose a cleanser wisely
Winters make your skin quite dry. Opt for a natural mild cleanser which is gentle on your skin. Harsh cleansers might strip off natural oils from your face and the added fragrances and alcohol might irritate your skin, which ultimately makes your skin all the more dry and flaky.
Exfoliation is important
People generally think that winters are not for exfoliation but it's a big myth. Even if you have a dry skin exfoliation is very important because it takes off dry dead skin cells and helps to regenerate new ones.
Use a Body Lotion right after the shower
Since its winters always go for a creamy based body lotion and moisturiser to lock in the moisture of the skin. The trick is to apply the lotion right after the shower since your body is still moist and the lotion will get absorbed easily and will stay on for long keeping your skin soft and plump.
Facial Oil is the key
Facial oils are really important in winters since they can give your skin an additional dose of nourishment that is required. It helps in removing dryness from the skin and help the skin cells rejuvenate. Facial oils also help in reducing fine lines and wrinkles and give that glow to your face.
Don't forget your hands and feet
Always use a gentle or mild handwash to wash your hands and a nourishing cream-based lotion for the hands since they are the most exposed and hardworking part of our body. We tend to ignore them sometimes and the skin becomes itchy and flaky. (IANS)
