We are sure you are reading this while being bundled up in layers of warm, fluffy sweaters and sipping on a hot chocolate, while your feet are snuggled in foofy Unicorn or Sponge Bob SquarePants slippers.

If you are in a corner of the country where it gets cold, then we are sure your skin is rebelling against the wintry weather. The most common of skin problems in winter is dry, dehydrated skin. Here is how you can protect your skin against the elements this winter and maintain moisture.

Exfoliator
 

Exfoliator

Wash your face with an exfoliator once or twice a week. Dead skin cells pile up on the surface of the skin and makes your skin look duller than usual. So exfoliate and remove this unwanted layer, for healthier looking skin. We love the St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Face Scrub for fresh feeling skin.

Creamy, rich moisturisers
 

Creamy, rich moisturisers

After washing your face, supply the skin with the nutrients it needs. Keep it supple with a rich moisturiser and also use a night mask so your skin so it can repair itself while you sleep. It’s called ‘beauty sleep’ for a reason! Try the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Oil-In-Crème for daytime and Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Overnight Mask during the night.

Eye cream
 

Eye cream

The skin around the eyes is delicate and thin. So it is prone to drying more. Protect your under eye area with a rich cream, especially one with retinol as this will help you get rid of fine line and wrinkles.
