While winter brings in many happy and joyous feelings, it comes with certain inconveniences like dehydrated, patchy skins and other skin abrasions. To retain moisture and avoid flaky skins use of certain moisturizers and oils are imperative.
We have put together a simple yet effective regime which will retain skin hydration and make you look naturally radiant.
Few drops of olive/coconut/mustard oil in your belly button every day prevents chapped lips. This works because the naval is the epicenter of the body.
Avoid super hot baths. It is rather tempting and feels wonderful to take a super hot bath/shower. But it is a very bad idea. The supreme heat of a hot shower or bath destroys the lipid barriers in the skin, which leads to a loss of moisture.
After a bath, apply a body lotion/cream while the skin is still damp. It helps to seal the moisture. The moisturizer/cream should be enriched with Vitamin A and E.
Moisturize your feet. Feet need stronger moisturizing stuff than the rest of the body. So use lotions that contain petroleum jelly or glycerin. Also use a pumice stone to remove the dead skin cells regularly. This helps the moisturizer to sink in better and faster.
Keep your hands moist, especially in cold, dry weather. The skin on our hands is thinner than the rest of the body which is why they become dry and itchy much quicker than the rest of the body.
Drink plenty of fluids to keep self hydrated during the dry winter months.
