Just as summers, winters brings along a host of skin issues. The temperature drops outside while you still maintain a temperature within with the help of room heaters. But, while keeping you warm, they suck all the moisture in the air, leaving your skin dry. So, winters is the time when you will complain of dry and oily patches. But worry not. We have a few tips for a ‘smooth’ winters.
A cleaning oil rather than a face wash
Cleaning is essential for a good skin. But it winter’s, you have to be careful what you clean with, because an already dry skin will get drier with a harsh face wash. It is always better to go for a cleaning milk rather than a wash. “You can use a non-comedogenic” cleansing oil that doesn’t block pores, but cleans away your dirt. After cleaning, the skin would become soft and supple,” says Anita Tandon, A Skin Care Specialist.
Eat right for a glowing skin
What you eat reflects on your face. So,if you eat the right kind of food, it will show on your face. If your food provides you with some extra antioxidants and Omega 3, then it will keep your skin glowing and supple. Nuts and fruits provide the essential nutrients for a great skin. Also, exercise helps in blood circulation,which is great for skin.
Toner in the morning but deep clean at night
A toner is good for the morning, it keeps the lipid’s cover, maintain the moisture. keeps moisture in your skin from evaporating. But cleaning your skin before going to bed is very important.
Peel away with Enzymes
Peel away your dry skin so that it allows moisture to seep in. “Enzyme peeling works by eating old skin cells without affecting the rest of the skin,” says S. Ruksana, A Beautician.
Deep moisturising at night and sunscreen in the day
“It is important to lather your skin with some deep moisturising lotion which works on your skin while you sleep. And if in case you find some sun outside, do guard your skin with a sunscreen. Because the rays in winters are more harmful and direct,” adds Ruksana.
“We treat skins that are severely damaged during the winters. But a dose of Vitamin C on the skin works wonders. ANd if you are going for AHA treatment, that should be done only during the winters, because the sun can damage the skin. But even in winters, go for a sunscreen after an AHA treatment,” says Anita.
