Home remedies for dry skin in winter, Winter comes with its own set of challenges when it comes to skin. Dry skin in winters is one of them. So what changes do we need to make in our skincare routine to make winters comfortable? First and foremost, moisturise the body evenly. In moisturisers, one needs to look for ingredients like ceramide, chia butter, cocoa butter, and Squalene. Secondly, sunscreen is a must. One can switch to lotion-based sunscreen in Winter, which contains hyaluronic acid. Often in Winter, we think it’s not sunny outside, so we don’t need sun cream, but one needs to apply it evenly inside or out for 30 minutes. Thirdly, instead of harsh cleansers, switch to gentle cleansers. Avoid face wash that has salicylic acid or glycolic acid. Finally, for night creams containing retinol, one must decrease their frequency to thrice a week. Restrict the usage of anti-aging retinol daily rather than used a week thrice.
Now special mention to chapped lips in Winter. Chapped lips are a very common problem we come across in the Winter. One can apply coconut oil and desi ghee over the lips to prevent it. Use home-based remedies like desi ghee or coconut oil while sleeping and in the morning. To avoid sun damage, prefer a lip balm with an SPF. A few home remedies for soft and supple skin are milk, honey, and yoghurt-based masks. Staying hydrated detoxifies the skin and avoids tea and coffee.
How to take care of dry skin on the body in winter?
Skincare for overall body skin dryness is also very essential during Winter. One must avoid hot water baths as this dries the skin maximum. After the bath, apply coconut oil when the body is moist to entrap the moistures, then layer it with your daycare moisturiser. For crack heels during Winter, one must dip their feet in lukewarm water for at least 10-15 minutes, then the crack ends with a pumice stone. After cleaning heels, applying lactic acid urea-based moisturiser helps, and if possible, try wearing cotton socks.
The presence of oil glands or sebaceous glands is very scary in hands, so we must avoid harsh hand washes and opt for pH-balanced soaps. And regular moisturization after hand washing. So these are a few skincare routine changes we must make in Winter. You can consult the doctor if you have any queries regarding winter skin care.
