How to Care for Your Skin During Winter?

New year, new resolutions, chilly weather and clear white snow - winter has its own charm. Among all the things that make winter wonderful, there are also a few that don’t. Chilly weather is brutal - especially on your skin. Dry, itchy skin and chapped lips could completely take away the winter magic. It may sound a little cliché to say that you must change your skincare routine as the weather changes, but it’s a good idea to start soon - before the damage has been done.

The cold winter air robs the skin of its natural moisture, leaving it dry and itchy. It may also cause eczema or psoriasis. While you consider changing your skincare routine to combat the winter chills, the products you use can make a huge difference. It’s a good idea to consider 100% natural products as they are kind to your skin and soothing - enough to combat the effects of harsh weather. Moreover, they offer holistic healing rather than temporary solutions and rarely have any side effects as they are chemical free and do not irritate the skin.

So, as the days get chilly and when the winter wind blows, here’s what you can do to keep your skin supple and glowing:

Gentle & fragrance-free are always good

Using regular soaps or cleansers may worsen the condition. Many products are chemical concoctions and cause more harm than any good. Use 100% natural products, like rosewater, that is prepared by steam distillation of rose petals. Rose water is gentle and does not contain any additives to add extra fragrance or color. It rarely has any side effects on your skin.

Change in routine is good

Make changes to your skincare regimen. It does not have to be elaborate--just enough to keep your skin happy during winter. Cleanse your skin in the morning and before you go to bed. Apply light moisturizer or a spritz of rosewater to lock in the moisture. Freshly-washed skin absorbs moisture better. During winter, use toners and astringents sparingly. They usually contain alcohol that could further dry your skin. Little changes can go a long way.

Moisturize frequently - especially your hands

Cold weather leaves your skin dry and flaky. Frequent moisturization is necessary - especially for your hands. This is mainly because the skin on your hands has fewer oil glands than any other part of the body. Moisture escapes the hands quickly, making them prone to cracks and leaves them itchy too. Rosewater could be a great addition to your winter care regime. It’s pure, natural and free from chemicals. It gently moisturizes, leaving your hands and skin feeling soft and supple - even during winter!
