Winters are here and so is the time of dull, dry and pale skin - all thanks to this cold weather. The condition worsens as we enjoy all the winter 'comforts' like heaters and blowers, being out in the sun and bathing with hot water.
An overall lack of external and internal nourishment can all lead to itchiness, parched skin and generally unhappy-looking skin. So, it is time to take extra care of our skin and follow basic routines to keep our skin glowing even in this chilly weather. A little effort and time can go a long way in getting soft, healthy skin.
Here are 5 simple and natural tips that are just what you need to follow for healthy skin & hair:
Moisturising is one of the most important steps that one must do to have glowing skin in winters. It helps in keeping our skin hydrated and makes sure that the skin does not lose its natural oil. You can choose a plethora of natural moisturisers like coconut oil, castor oil, olive oil, argan oil etc.
During winters, we tend to avoid drinking water as we feel less dehydrated; however, we lose water from our body in so many ways without realising it. Therefore, it is imperative to load up on water even during cold winter days. Refill your system with water and get glowing skin without having to worry about dullness anymore.
3. Wash Your Face With Lukewarm Water
Hot showers in winters may relax your muscles, but nothing can be worse for your skin condition than hot water. It makes your skin dry and flaky. The effects are even more adverse if you have sensitive skin.
Of course, we cannot switch to a cold water bath, but we can save our facial skin by washing it with lukewarm water. This way you wouldn't feel cold and also wouldn't let natural oils slough off easily from your face.
If you wish to see healthy skin, you must not forget to replenish it at night when you are resting for about 7-8 hours. Indulge in deep moisturizing with oils like rosehip, sweet almond or jojoba before you sleep so you can wake up with beautifully supple skin.
5. Regular Oiling
Massaging your hair and scalp regularly, say, once or twice a week, in these chilly winter months with natural oils can nourish your hair roots and strengthen your hair follicles by moisturising the scalp and promoting blood supply in the hair roots. You can try cold-pressed oils like coconut, argan, almond, castor, or olive.
