winter skin care

1.) Stay Hydrated

Your skin will become drier and often more sensitive with the onset of colder weather, You need to keep your skin hydrated as the atmospheric air is drier in winters. An easy way to keep it hydrated is by drinking lots of water or swap your coffee for green tea which has great anti-oxidant effects. Though you might not feel as thirsty during winters as the other seasons but its good to maintain your regular water intake.

2.) Choose Skin Care Products Wisely

What kept your skin happy during summers can make it sad during winters. And that’s why you need to change your skin care products accordingly. The key to healthy and glowing winter skin is using mild skin care products. 

Avoid masks and peels, astringent lotions, and any product that contains alcohol as they make your skin dry during winters.

3.) Consider professional skin treatments

“Winter is a great time of year for skin treatments. We always worry about peels and laser treatment in the summer months. With sun exposure before or after such procedures there is a higher risk of unwanted post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation. Autumn and winter therefore represents an opportunity.

4.) Protect Your Skin

The warm sun rays feel pleasant in winters, but the UV rays can damage your skin a lot. Choose a sunscreen that has titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. Also, avoid going outside immediately after you have washed your hands or after a shower.

5.) Always carry a Lip balm

Almost all of our dermatologists agree that chapped lips are a fact of life during winter, but by regularly applying a hydrating balm, they do what they can to stay ahead of the dryness."Lips become chapped because when people go out in the cold and don’t protect their lips, they tend to get wind burned,” Dr. Sravani Sandhya says.
