The skin is made up of different layers and epidermis’s superficial epithelial layer is the most likely target of our environment as the harsh elements can hardly reach the dermal layer that lies below. Winter is hard on skin. Dry air and harsh wind can sap moisture from the skin, causing cracking, chapping, and irritation.
Tips for Caring of Skin in Winter:
There are a variety of important tips for skincare in the winter season. Some of those are as given below:-.
* Try to drink a lots of water, which helps to transport nutrients to the skin cells, keeping them nourished.
* Don’t take long, hot showers. They may sound appealing, but they strip skin of its natural moisturizing lipids.
* Before going outside in winter, apply a heavy layer of moisturizing sunscreen to the face, hands, and any other skin that may be exposed.
* Blood circulation can be improved in the winter season, by eating warm cooked foods and drinking warm water. It will also clear the skin and keep healthy.
* Try to protect your hands from the cold air and low humidity, by wearing gloves, which are made up from material that does not irritate your skin.
* Keeping the skin stimulated is a delicate balancing act. Too much can be as bad as too little. Never use anything that leaves your skin thirsty. If it feels sore or taught after using a product, stop using it.
* Honey is extremely calming and helps reduce redness and soreness, but the fresh organic mangoes are rich in skin friendly vitamins and antioxidants.
* The skin on your feet tends to dry and crack more in winter. Treat your feet to a relaxing soak at night, three times a week.
