Winter Skin Care Tips by Dr Sravani Sandhya, Aura Skin Clinic, Visakhapatnam

After watching game of thrones we know what it is like to face winter. But we have good news for you!!!!

At aura skin and hair clinic we know how to combat this weather

DULL SKIN - Firstly what is dull skin?

Dull skin can make you look tired and old, even when you're well rested. When your skin has a layer of dead skin cells on the surface, your skin doesn't reflect light as it naturally would with new, healthy skin. 


• Major causes of skin disorders can be stated as:
• Aging
• Exposure to the Sun
• Contact with allergens and irritants
• Food habits
• Hormonal Imbalance

Simple 5 Step skin routine you can follow to make your skin rejuvenate.

Step 1
Invest in a good quality exfoliating scrub that contains fruit acids, glycolic acid or abrasive beads that help slough away the dead cells on the surface of the skin. Dead skin cells don't reflect light well, instead making your skin look dry and dull. exfoliating once weekly will help to keep skin looking bright. Opt for a daily cleanser 

Step 2
Apply an oil-free moisturizer several times daily. Dry skin can often take on a dull, chapped appearance that can make you look tired. Apply moisturizer each day, even if your skin doesn't feel dry. Look for one labeled "noncomedogenic" so you know it won't cause breakouts, even with frequent applications.

Step 3
Wear sunscreen every day. Sun damage can make your skin look discolored and dull, so it's important that a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or above for Indian skin to become part of your daily skin care regimen. If adding a sunscreen sounds like too much of a bother, look for a daily moisturizer with a built-in sunscreen to help streamline your morning routine.

Step 4
Wear a tinted moisturizer or tinted sunscreen instead of a thick and heavy foundation. A tinted sunscreen will help your skin's natural color and texture to shine through while adding light reflecting minerals to keep your skin looking bright. Heavy foundations and powders can dull the skin and give it a matte appearance, which can actually make you look older.

Step 5
Schedule an appointment with your dermatologist if lifestyle and cosmetic remedies don't seem to be helping your dull skin problem. Your dermatologist can suggest a number of skin care procedures to be done in the office to help speed skin cell turnover and reveal more youthful skin. 
If you feel that your skin has gone dull or darker in shade and has developed blemishes, dark spot, acne, wrinkles or textural irregularities, you should consider choosing the Skin Rejuvenation. Your age, appearance, and style is completely your choice.

Winter Skin Care Tips by Dr. Sravani Sandhya - Aura Skin Clinic , Vizag

The sun is often seen as our skin’s worst enemy, but winter can be just as much of a worry when it comes to skin.Dry and cold air outside  suck out the moisture, leaving us prone to the formation of new lines. Here’s how to take good care of your skin during winters.

Moisture Boost

“Our skin’s barrier function is less effective in winter so we can’t hold on to whatever water our horny (outer) layers of skin attract from deeper skin layers – and we keep losing moisture to the dry winter air by evaporation.

“To combat transepidermal water loss, look for moisturisers containing humectants such as glycerine, hyaluronic acid, lactic acid and urea – they have the ability to hold and attract water in the skin.”

Drink Warm Water

Water helps plump up the skin, but a cold glass from the tap just isn’t that appealing when it’s freezing outside.
Not surprising then that, during winter, we tend to drink much less than the recommended daily 1.6 litres of fluid for women and 2 litres for men.

Warm water is a great hydrator, but if you can’t stomach it, drink white tea instead.

Studies have shown that extracts in white tea strengthen the skin’s elastin and collagen content.

No Long, Hot Showers

Yes, we know there’s nothing nicer than languishing in a steamy shower but your skin won’t thank you. 

“Long, hot baths and showers strip the skin of its protective oils, allowing moisture to escape,
Keep showers short and warm (not hot) and as soon as you step out of the steam (while your skin is still damp and pores open) apply moisturiser.

TRY: Popping your jar of moisturiser in a sink of hot water while you’re showering. It will feel warm and comforting going on, but will also help it absorb more easily.

Don’t Forget The SPF

UV rays are still very much at large in winter. Use a broad spectrum SPF no lower than SPF25 to protect against UVA and UVB rays.”

Get Your Oats

Dry skin can feel itchy, but scratching can damage skin and encourage fine lines to form into deeper wrinkles. “Collodial Oatmeal is one of my favourite ingredients in winter skincare.

“It has an anti-itch, anti-inflammatory and ultra hydrating action on the skin.

"The beta gluten in oatmeal leaves skin feeling like satin.”

Special-Eye Care

“The fine skin around the eyes can get extra-dry and sore in winter, especially in cold winds, leading to deepened crow’s feet,” 

“Swap your light eye gel for a rich cream containing hydrating rice bran and hyaluronic acid to help balance the skin’s pH.”

It’s A Wrap-Up

It sounds obvious, but covering up with scarves, hats and earmuffs will help avoid moisture loss. Avoid itchy wools if your skin is extra-dry, though.

“Friction from rough clothing can contribute to dry, irritated skin,” warns Dr Stefanie Williams.

Eat Your Fats..!

“Fats are essential for healthy and nourished skin – but be sure to choose healthy (mono-unsaturated) varieties,” says dietitian Nichola Whitehead ( “Fats in nuts and avocados are fantastic for a healthy complexion. They have antioxidants such as vitamin E and selenium.”
