Winter is undeniably the best season of the year. No scorching heat, tanning and most importantly, no sweat (phew!). You can snuggle in a cozy blanket with a cup of hot coffee and enjoy the chilly air. However, it isn’t such a happy time for your skin. When the temperature drops, your skin loses its moisture and becomes dull and flaky, thanks to the dry winter air.
Although using a good moisturiser is a no brainer, your skin needs extra TLC and nourishment to brave the cold air. If a moisturising face oil is missing from your winter skincare shelf, it’s time to add it before the harsh winds blow the moisture away.
We happen to have the recipe for a miracle face oil that you can DIY using just three-ingredients and keep your skin healthy and moisturised even in the chilliest of months. Here is how you can make it.
All you need to DIY this face oil is argan oil, carrot seed oil and lavender essential oil.
Step 01: Take an empty oil bottle and fill it two-third with argan oil.
Step 02: Now, fill the bottle with your nourishing oil that is carrot seed oil.
Step 03: Put in five to six drops of lavender essential oil in the mixture and mix all three ingredients with a stick or toothpick.
Step 04: A blend of these three oils will make a dryness-combatting elixir you can use all through winter.
Step 05: Cleanse your face every night and slather a small amount of this DIY oil on your face and wake up to well-moisturised and glowing skin every morning.
If you don't have all the ingredients at home or are too lazy, a thick moisturiser such as the Pond's Moisturising Cold Cream work wonders. Enriched with glycerine, it helps to eliminate dry and flaky skin in just a few uses.
