Haven’t you heard them say, ‘In order to appreciate the beauty of a snowflake, it is necessary to stand out in the cold.” Now, I completely agree with that - after all, winter has its own charm. But this beautiful snow and cold breeze come with a price. It robs away the natural moisture of your skin, leaving it feeling and looking dry, itchy and flaky. In some cases, it also leads to some serious issues like eczema, dry skin and psoriasis. This is why you need to take extra care of your skin, especially during winters. Read about some helpful tips that you can follow to keep your skin feeling and looking happy during the winters.
1. Use Lukewarm Water
It is a natural inclination to want to go for a hot shower in the icy cold winters, but if you love your skin better, then you’ll ditch hot showers for some lukewarm water. Hot water is proven to dry your skin quickly and in case you fail to moisturize your skin immediately, your skin can break out and develop cracks or breed winter eczema.
2. Stay Hydrated
The next tip is to stay hydrated, always! No matter if you are inside the house or outside, the dry winter air can reach you out anywhere, which results in water evaporation of your body. Hence, it is important to keep your skin and body hydrated at all times or you can also choose to install a humidifier in your house to manage the moisture level of your rooms.
3. Choose Skin Care Products Wisely
