12 Tips To The Ultimate Winter Skin
Women Fitness India|December 2021
After the warm summer weather comes the cold and dry winter weather. While everyone looks out to see the beautiful winter snow, no one is in a hurry to encounter the dry air that comes with it. Winter weather is not good for the skin due to the fact that low humidity level and cold weather causes an overflow of dry air thereby extracting the skin’s natural moisture.

This harsh winter air can cause skin dryness, itching, redness, and even cause your skin to bleed. To adjust the body temperature, most people further enable indoor heat, hot showers and make use of harsh cleansers. All of these further reduce the moisture in the air thereby causing skin outbreaks. One immediate way to keep your skin at this time is drinking water to keep you hydrated.

Irrespective of skin type, the effect of winter is evident on everyone. While the effect may be more pronounced on people with dry skin, those with oily skin also tend to lose natural oils during this period. While some people get accustomed to using moisturizers during the weather, you will have to do more if you want to retain your looks

At this time, all you need to do to regain and maintain your skin smoothness and look younger is change your skin care routine or make few additions to the existing ones.

Here are 12 skin care tips to see you through the season:

1. Avoid hot showers with harsh soaps:

Winter weather comes with extra cold weather and everyone wants to be as warm as possible to be comfortable and to avoid influenza. In a bid to do that, we tend to go for hot baths. While it feels really good, you are actually causing more damage to your skin. The weather naturally extracts natural oil from your skin. The inclusion of a hot bath can cause itching and bleeding.

At this time, it is best to make use of lukewarm water. Even when you only need to wash your face and hands, make use of lukewarm water. It helps you to retain natural oils.

If you need to make use of soaps while having your bath, ensure you switch to soaps that also works as moisturizers. In all, avoid rubbing your skin in a harsh way while showering. You should pat rather than rub.

2. Moisturize Immediately:

It will not be advantageous for you if you rely only on your natural oils. Immediately after you wash, ensure you moisturize. As important as it is to moisturize, ensure you do not make use of just any moisturizer. Switch to an ultra-hydrating moisturizer type especially one that contains Vitamin E, Chia seeds, fatty acids and Patua and Lavender oils.

Moisturizers that contain these ingredients will surely keep in the moisture and protect your skin-aging appearance. Avoid ingredients that are petroleum-based as they will further cause skin dryness. It is best to go for an oil-based moisturizer rather than water-based one.

3. Avoid exposing your skin:
