The season of chapped lips and dry skin is here, and while most of us spend hundreds on skincare, especially in the winter, we only focus on the face and forget the 93 per cent of the skin below our neck. Our body is exposed to harsh and dry weather with the temperature dropping.
Here are some tips we can use to maintain your skin.
Use oil-based cleansers : As the first step of your winter routine, include almond or organ-based oil body wash in your body care regime. Such oil-based body wash acts as a double cleanser for your dry skin. It gives your skin that extra hydration, smoothening, and nourishment it requires in the cold.
Use thick moisturisers : Moisturisers are a must-have. Use thick cream or lotions that contain emollients like shea butter and avocado oil. Apply them on exposed skin like ankles, hands, and neck to prevent dryness and chicken skin. Use moisturiser before going to bed.
Scrub dead skin once a week: People with dry skin should use a scrub at least once a week to eliminate flaky skin. A cream-based scrub is gentle on the skin and doesn’t damage the skin. Almond powder and walnut shell are two excellent exfoliators.
Use body oils: Body oils are extremely good for winter, especially if you have dry skin. If you have oily skin, use dry skin. Use lighter oils that have argan, macadamia and burrito, and almond oil. Body oil is suitable for all skin types and gives your skin an extremely satisfying level of nourishment.
Keep hydrated: Drinking water is essential, especially in the winter. While at it, also include seasonal veggies and fruits in your diet.
