Web Desk: Winters are not friendly with our skin. Winters make our skin drier and cause cracking and bleeding. Therefore, routine care is very much important.
First identify your skin texture like oily, dry or a combination skin. According to a Dermatologist, Dr. Rohit Batra, “If someone has an oily skin, gel based moisturisers are best to be used; wherein a cream based moisturiser or a cream based lotion should be used by the ones having dry skin.”
“People with dry skin need to select products having liquid paraffin, sheer butter and coco butter and for someone who has an allergy prone skin should opt for moisturiser containing ceramides. People with combination skin should go for oil based rather than water based solution, as it is more likely to help your skin retain moisturiser in winter.” he added.
A dietitian Deepti G Dua stated, “Winter foods have some good calories and great nutrition. One must consume a nutritionally rich diet or foods rich in omega 3 like fish, salmon etc. One must avoid starchy and sugary foods as they not only bloat your stomach but also cause acne, eczema and causes wrinkles. Your winter diet should also contain omega 6 fatty acids and essential oils.”
She also suggested to keep your body naturally warm by consuming leafy vegetables and nuts like almonds and peanuts.
