You need to moisturize your skin more in winter as there is uncomfortable dryness to the skin of the face, hands, and feet. Here are some tips for winter beauty:

  1. You should experiment with your home’s thermostat to find an indoor temperature which is more comfortable for your dry skin conditions.
  2.  Try showering in lukewarm water instead, and slather on a moisturizing body lotion right afterward. As very hot showers may chase away the chill from outdoors, but they can strip the skin and hair of moisture as well.
  3. Do not go outside with wet hairs on a cold day but use a dryer to dry your hairs to look them perfect and shiny. Relying on an electric hair dryer to dry your hair after washing can compound dry, frizzy or unruly hair. So it is essential to keep hair healthy in winter.
  4. Moist your lips as well in winter to avoid dryness. Use olive oil or coconut oil over the lips to moisturize and prevent cracking on cold days. You can also use a moisturizing lip balm sparingly.
  5. Oats and Honey Facial: It is good home remedy for face in winter.Blend oats and honey in a blender or food processor until smooth. Apply to clean, dry skin in small circular motions, covering the entire face, neck, and decolletage areas. Rinse with warm water, or, for a mask treatment, allow leave on for 10 minutes, then rinse.
  6. Avoid Wet Gloves and Socks: Do not wear wet socks and gloves in winter. Wet socks and gloves can irritate your skin and cause itching, cracking, sores or even a flare-up of eczema.
  7. Moisturize More in winter: In winter your skin need more moisturizer. You may have found a moisturizer that works just fine in spring and summer.  But as weather conditions change it also affects your skin care routine. So use an ointment moisturizer which is oil-based, rather than water-based, as the oil will create a protective layer on the skin that retains more moisture than a cream or lotion.
