One bankable way to skin care in winters is borrowing ingredients from your kitchen and turning them into skin masks and face packs. There are some winter specific foods that make amazing skin packs in many combinations like honey, olive oil, eggs, coffee and yoghurt among others. Here is a link to our story on winter skin packs.
Consume foods rich in fatty acids
Consuming foods that will keep you warm in winters is an extremely important part of your winter skin care regime. You must know that if there is a lack of fatty acids in your diet, your body cannot maintain this protective wrap over your skin. Hence, make sure you include a lot of tofu, soya beans and walnuts in your diet that will help you internally battle dry skin.
Use the right product
Vaseline Advanced Repair (Lightly Scented) is designed for intense healing of very dry and rough skin. Loaded in healing micro-droplets of Vaseline jelly with the highest levels of moisturizing glycerin, the lotion works as the best moisturizer for dry skin as it provides intense moisturisation and repairs skin from within in just five days without leaving it greasy.
Avoid fabrics that don’t suit your skin
Sometimes the fabrics that keep you warm are the fabrics that also cause skin irritation to such an extent that they can cause and aggravate skin infections and dryness. Another reason why you need a moisturiser like the Vaseline Advanced Repair (Lightly Scented) that’s rich in glycerine that can form a protective layer over the skin and care for you.
Avoid hot water showers
As much as we love the comforting touch of hot water hitting our cold skin it does not do any good. It increases blood circulation and the pores on your skin open up which leads to your skin losing moisture and turning dry.
Psst, if you absolutely must take a hot water shower because the weather just won’t allow you to do otherwise then make sure you apply a hydrating moisturising lotion immediately after the shower so you lock nourishment into your skin.
Avoid electric heaters
Just like hot showers, heaters too seem like a blessing in winters but they too don’t do any good to your skin. Heaters make the air around them dry in the process our skin too loses moisture too, which is why it is important to keep your skin well moisturised at all times when you have the heater around.
