Saying goodbye is a tough thing to do but trust us you would love to say goodbye to the dry skin syndrome. Winters get harsh on the body in a lot more ways than we can imagine and the only way out seems is to become extra protective.
The skin tends to lose its natural moisture when it comes in contact with the dull and dry atmosphere. So, what to do? Well, let’s share the mantra of how to keep a healthy skin during winters:
This is one and only way to keep the extra dryness away. It may require two to three times a day care, but go for it. Buy that extra large bottle of body moisturizer so that your stock lasts the season. Use of natural moisturizers like milk cream is a healthy way to do it.
We often forget to do this, but it is crucial to do away with the dead cells that keep layering on. One should exfoliate once a week with steam, a scrubber and an exfoliating cream. This would help the skin rejuvenate and breathe fresh again.
Not too hot
It is known how much you love the geyser’s hot water but do not go for way too hot. It takes away the natural skin moistures. Use of water at lukewarm temperature is best for bathing purposes.
Most of the available soaps in the market just leave the skin dry. It is better to go for a shower gel or even rub off some coconut oil before the bath. This would let the skin have the necessary oils.

One should always take good care of the lips in winters as they are prone to dryness often. The remedy for chapped lips is to keep some moisturizing cream handy or if you are at home then, rub on a little portion of fresh milk cream.
The face cannot be forgotten and this would need special attention. For men, who are allergic to substances like aloe vera, you should go for glycerine based cream. One can also use plain glycerine mixed with lime juice, which can be washed off.
Well, we know you cannot go fishing for this one, but here’s what you can do. Go to the nearest chemist and look for cod liver oil capsules. These are known as immunity boosters and help revive skin moisture.
It is all that you need to brace your skin against the cruel winter winds. Once you are on the track with the above mentioned precautions, the winter may shy away from touching you at all. That’s a promise.
