Beauty tips for winter
Winters make the skin dry. Chapping and scaling is a common problem faced in this season.
Water is the key
– The body needs to be kept hydrated. Consume warm water at periodic intervals as water is very important to detoxify the body. The skin needs to be hydrated from inside too.
– However fresh hot water baths make you feel in winters, they actually damage your skin and hair, by adding to the dryness. So go in for a warm + cold water bath. This hydrotherapy increases the blood flow throughout the body and rejuvenates the skin. Start with a warm water shower, and then turn the water to a colder temperature for about 15 seconds. Again turn to a warmer temperature, repeat this process for about 2-3 minutes. If you really care about your skin and hair, remember never to have very hot water baths.
– This will help get rid of the excessive dry skin. Removing the dead cells will help your skin absorb the moisturizers better, making it softer and scale free. During winters exfoliation can be done at least 2 times a week. Be gentle on your skin always while using ready to use scrubbers or homemade formulas to exfoliate.
Moisturize the skin
– Apply moisturizers and lotions to keep your skin healthy and glowing. After taking the shower slather on the moisturizer on your skin. It is better if you don’t use soap while washing up before moisturizing. Go for a body wash instead of soap.
