With changing seasons our fashion and clothes also change then why not our skincare routine! Winter is almost here and our skin needs special care during this season. Due to changes in weather and temperature, our skin loses its natural elasticity, oils, and moisture and becomes harsh, rough, and unmanageable. WInters also bring a lot of other difficulties like cracked lips, flaking, skin dryness, etc. Hence, the skin needs nourishment so that it can maintain moisture better.
Ayushakti Brings You the 7 Best Skincare Routine to Follow During Winters:
- Moisturize at Least Twice a Day
Your skin loses moisture very quickly in wintertime. Use a suitable moisturizer instantly after a lukewarm shower to lock the moisture in. Apply a hydrating face mask once or twice a week to save your dried skin. Change your sheer moisturizer for something that is creamier in texture and intensely nourishing. Maybe you can try your hands on jojoba oil or ayurvedic kumkumadi oil.
- Lip Balm Is Your Friend
Wintertimes and severe cold winds can leave your lips dry and chapped and covering them under the masks can do more harm than we know. For soft and supple lips, it is necessary to use a great lip balm. The safest way to pick the appropriate lip balm is to look for one infused with the goodness of essential oils and natural herbs.
- Wear Sunscreen Every Day
You will be astounded to know that the wintertime sun is actually more damaging for your skin. In summertime you feel hot and take a scarf, restricting your UV exposure. But in wintertime, you relish sitting out all day in the sun. Not only can this worsen pigmentation, but also early age your skin. Did you know the fact that there is no distinction in the effect of UV rays that are present in summer and winter?
- Eat Right
Your skin mirrors what you eat. In winters usually, we tend to feel more hungry than any other season. Eat a lot of healthy and seasonal green vegetables and fruits. When you feel like snacking, do not go for some fried or unhealthy option instead reach out for healthy dried fruits, seeds, and nuts. Do not neglect to incorporate the green leafy vegetables, fruits, and millets which will keep your body warm and strong through the wintertime.
- Sweat It Out
Exercise is the solution to shining skin. Sweating eliminates toxins from your body. The more you engage yourself in exercises and sweat, the more you can see your skin obtain a natural radiance. You naturally sweat less in wintertime, so get in motion to bring the glow!
- Get Your Beauty Sleep
Get sufficient sleep, who doesn’t enjoy sleeping wrapped in a blanket? Make the most of it and you will dodge dark circles and a hoard of other stress-related skin complications.
- Hydrate Yourself Well
Do not miss out on your water consumption. In winters you might not feel as thirsty as the weather is already chilled and you are not sweating. But not to overlook, the 8 glasses of water practice applies in winter too! Shortage of water intake instantaneously reflects on your skin. It can make your skin look lifeless, dry, and dehydrated.
How to keep Palm warm in the winters
During winter season if your hands become cold take dry ginger powder and carom seed powder and rub it on the hands.
This will help blood circulation and keep your hands warm.
