You can bid farewell to dry skin by following these simple tips that will leave your skin not only smooth but glowing.
1. Opt for creamy products instead of gel-based products
Keep away all your gel based daily care products for this season and go for creamy products.Cream-based products contain high oil content and help form a protective layer on the skin that prevents it from peeling off. Whether it’s your face wash, shower gel, body lotion or make up, opt for creamy ones as they retain more moisture during wintry days and nourish the skin from within.
2. Apply sun screen
Mostly people use sunscreen on the bright hot days of summer to protect their skin from sun tan and sun burn. But surprisingly, pre-winter sun can be just as harmful for the skin.So continue the habit of applying broad spectrum sun screen in winters as well.For best results, make sure to apply sun protection cream half an hour before stepping out of the house.
Oiling becomes more essential as winter sets in. Even a ten minute oiling session before shower would be enough. Use baby oil or olive oil and get regular massages. This will keep your skin soft, supple and smooth through out the chilly days.
4.Drink lots of water
Keep your body hydrated by drinking lots of water. Try to sip on luke warm water or normal water rather than cold water. This helps your skin glow and flush out toxins of your body.
5. Take quick baths
Most of us prolong our hot showers during winters which is the main cause for our dry and irritated skin. It’s essential to keep the shower as brief as possible and avoid showering with awfully hot water.
