So, the winter is finally here and your skin is going try. Well, ladies, how do you plan on fighting the symptoms of dry skin?
Dry skin really makes you feel battered and embarrassed. However, you can actually keep your skin moist during the harsh winter.
How? Let’s find out:
Your hands and feet give away your age. Hence, if you want to leave people guessing your age and hold on to your youthful look for a long time, make sure to take care of them. Invest in some quality foot cream and pamper your skin the right way. Dab onto your feet some foot cream, every night before going to bed and achieve smooth feet.
Don’t forget the cuticles and heels:
With the drop in the mercury, the problems of cuticles and cracked heels tend to rise. While investing in a good hand cream ensures somewhat relief from cuticles but what’s even better is, you invest in a product that is specifically designed to treat your cuticles. While routine pedicure is a good idea to get rid of cracked heels, you can also apply foot creams that specialize in treating cracked heels to get soft and smooth heels.
Go easy on hair removal:
Your skin is extra sensitive during the winter season and hair removal makes it even worse. To reduce the number of “ouch” you let out on your next session, go easy with your waxing and shaving regime and use shaving gel that has moisturizing properties in it.
Pro advice: do not forget to moisturize your skin well, every time you undergo a hair removal session
Hydrating Hand Sanitizer:
Hand sanitizer has become a necessity these days; it has emerged as the superhero that keeps germs and infections away. But what is not very superhero-like about these hand sanitizers are its drying effect. Its harsh alcohol content turns your hands rough and dry with every use.
Pro advice: To keep your hands clean and soft invest in sanitizer that is hydrating and has less alcohol percentage
Our skin is extra sensitive during the cold season and that is why you need to be extra careful even while performing mundane household chores like washing dishes. In order to prevent the dryness of your hands, wear gloves to protect them from the irritants of the dish detergents. The gloves will not only protect your hands from drying but will also make your expensive manicure last longer.
The air inside your home is also very dry during the cold months. If you haven’t done it already and your budget is quite steady, then install a humidifier in your home this cold season. It will not only add moisture to the air you breathe in but will also help in clearing those nasty sinuses.
The most important thing that you can probably do to keep your skin healthy and hydrated during the winter is by following a healthy balanced diet. Drink water and include food rich in protein and fibre into your diet.
So folks, do not let the dry skin to become an embarrassment for you. Keep your skin moist and glamorous. And, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
