We’re in the middle of November which means that this is the official onset of bad skin weather! Dry, flaky, itchy skin is something we all face and it’s so not flattering! Gear up, ladies (and gentlemen too!) because you’re going to need to stock up on skincare products to see you through those wintery days! Ideally, you should take a quick trip to the supermarket and pick up all the products that include ingredients that will surely keep your skin hydrated this winter in abundance! Confused as to what all you need? Here’s a list!
Petroleum Jelly in your skincare regime
 

Petroleum Jelly in your skincare regime

We can’t stress enough about how much your skin needs hydration during the winters. If you had a sore throat, wouldn’t you keep drinking water? It’s exactly the same thing. The weather tends to suck the moisture out of the skin and it needs to be retained. Petroleum jelly is your best bet when you want to achieve this and what better than the good ole Vaseline Petroleum Jelly to use? It consists of natural waxes and mineral oils that lock the moisture in your skin. You can check the authenticity of this with a little experiment. Take a glass of water and tie a muslin cloth on the rim. Secure it tightly with a rubber band. Apply a layer of Vaseline Petroleum jelly and flip the glass, the water won’t fall off! That’s exactly how Vaseline works on your skin. Need we say more?

Glycerin
 

Glycerin

The main property of glycerin is its ability to attract moisture to the top layer of the skin where you apply it. It prevents skin from drying and external elements like weather affecting your skin. Vaseline Deep Restore consists of glycerin and also is infused with Vaseline Petroleum Jelly which triples the skin moisture. It is non-sticky, non-greasy and has a wonderful fragrance! So, go ahead and make this lotion a part of your winter skincare today!

Aloe vera Gel
 

Aloe vera Gel

The clear gel that Aloe Vera produces is known for its healing and soothing properties. If the winter is causing your skin to itch, just slice up the Aloe vera and use the gel as it is on your skin. Leave it on for 10 minutes and rinse it off! Aloe vera also acts as a moisturiser to your skin. In fact, you can also drink Aloe juice to boost immunity, detoxify your body and get a clear, glowing complexion from within!

Coconut Oil
 

Coconut Oil

This multipurpose ingredient is a winter skincare must-have. We recommend using extra virgin coconut oil for the best results! For dry skin, use warm coconut oil on the affected parts of the body and face before you go to sleep. Remember that a little goes a long way! Warm coconut oil can also be used to heal dry scalp.

Honey
 

Honey

Honey is packed with moisture preserving properties as it’s a natural humectant. This pretty much explains why honey is the key ingredient in many skincare products for dry skin. It is best to use raw honey directly on your skin. Cleanse your skin and spread a thin layer of raw honey evenly on your skin. Let it sit for 20 minutes, then rinse. Your skin will feel instantly refreshed, supple and moisturised!

Avocado
 

Avocado

Avocados are taking the skincare world by storm for all the right reasons! It’s packed with healthy fats that deep moisturise your skin giving it a natural glow. While using avocado directly on the face is a widely practiced skincare technique, for dry skin, you can tweak this method into something more effective. Whip up a mask using one mashed ripe avocado and honey until you reach a desired consistency. Apply on your face and rinse it off after 20 minutes! Drinking avocado juice, just like aloe vera, helps improve your skin from within!
