Saying hello to winter also means saying hello to dry skin and less than radiant, dull skin. The dry winter air can wreak havoc on your skin, leaving you with dehydrated, dull-looking skin you’d not want to flaunt. Well, you now need to put an end to your worries because we’ve got you the perfect solution to deal with your skin type.

The cold winter air absorbs most of the moisture from your skin, making it look dull, dry and lifeless. To bring the moisture back and to revive that glow, use a gentle facial cleanser that will hydrate your skin as well as retain your natural moisture. Use the Dove Beauty Moisture Conditioning Facial Cleanser which is apt for drier skin types.

Here’s an excellent hack for those tackling dry skin. Before heading for a bath, apply some glycerin on your hands and face and let it stay for an hour. Wash it using a gentle body wash such as the Dove Gentle Exfoliating Nourishing Body Wash that is sure to leave you with smooth skin.

Use a mild moisturiser that locks in your skin’s natural moisture. We love the lightweight Ponds Light Moisturiser Non-Oily Fresh Feel.

Oily skin

To treat oily skin in winter, it’s best to exfoliate your skin regularly with a gentle exfoliating gel, packed with vitamin E. Keep in mind that the last rinse is always with cold water. This helps close the pores, avoiding natural oils and moisture from escaping and dirt from entering.

Ditch your cream-based moisturisers for gel or water-based ones, such as the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Creme. A home remedy to reduce oiliness in winters is applying a face mask made from Fuller’s Earth or Multani Mitti mixed with some milk and rose water. Apply this mask thrice a week to notice the difference in your skin.

Those with combination skin experience oiliness in some areas and dry patches in others. In such cases, it’s ideal to stick to gentle facial cleansers, such as the Dove Beauty Moisture Conditioning Facial Cleanser. Stay away from richer and creamier moisturisers.

A home remedy that’ll work wonders for those with combination skin is a face mask containing a mixture of organic aloe gel and a few drops of lemon. Apply this mask before bed time.
