We can’t stress enough on the fact that your skin and beauty in general needs special care during winter. Winter months can wreak a havoc on everything from your hair to your skin, making it look drab and dull. Plus, the dry winter air can irritate your skin and weaken its outermost layer, thereby striping it of its moisture. Sigh!

Wondering how to keep the after-effects of this chilly weather at bay? These beauty tips will be of help...

Feet Care—with the help of a moisturiser and a pair of socks
 

Feet Care—with the help of a moisturiser and a pair of socks

With winter comes dehydrated soles and cracked heels. Just like your entire body needs to be moisturised enough in winters, your feet too need some TLC. For softer feet, apply a thick body lotion or moisturiser before going to bed. Next, cover your feet with thin cotton socks. The socks will help seal in moisture throughout the night, thereby healing your dry feet.

An overnight face mask will nourish your skin completely. We suggest you go with the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-in-Serum and apply it on your face before going to bed. Infused with the goodness of the legendary Moroccon Argan oil, the serum will moisturise and nourish your skin to keep it in the pink of health.

The dry winter air can be tough on your nails as well as cuticles. To prevent painful, ragged cuticles from bothering you, massaging a little lip balm on them can be of great help. The thick consistency of a lip balm will moisturise your cuticles and at the same time help those frayed cuticles stay together.

DIY body scrub

A mixture of brown sugar, honey and olive oil is the only body scrub you need to get rid of dry, flaky skin in the winter months. You can also slough dry lips by gently rubbing this mixture onto your lips with a cotton swab. The brown sugar acts as an exfoliant that removes dead skin, honey draws moisture into the skin and olive oil acts as a natural moisturiser that softens skin.

Smooth on body oil before showering

Hot water tends to dehydrate your body. And, taking a cool shower in the winters is definitely not happening. The only solution to this is body oil. Apply some body oil before taking a shower as it will help protect your skin from the hot water. Once you step out of the shower, slather on a body lotion while your body is still damp. This will help keep your skin hydrated.
