Health desk- To avoid the cold in the winter season, we save ourselves with the help of warm clothes, but often we are not able to take care of our skin properly, due to which the glow of the skin starts decreasing. Cold winds take away the moisture of the skin completely, due to which the skin becomes dry and lifeless. Therefore, in this winter, follow these easy home remedies to protect your skin from the effects of cold.
Facial skin care-
The need to moisturize your skin is more in winter than in summer. That’s why moisturize the face very well. Do not leave the house without applying sunscreen even in winter. To maintain the moisture of the face, you can use aloe vera, coconut, shea butter and herbal oils. Along with this, to keep the skin soft, you can prepare a moisturizing pack at home. Make a paste by mixing one teaspoon almond powder in two tablespoons milk. Leave this paste on the face for ten minutes. After that wash your face with clean water. Apply this pack every night before sleeping.
The maximum effect of dry winds is on the soft and soft lips of women. Due to which the lips start cracking and become dry. If you want the moisture of your lips to remain intact even in these winters, then use lip balm containing petroleum jelly and vitamin-E on your lips. To reduce the dryness of the lips, sleep by applying desi ghee in the navel before sleeping at night. This remedy is also very effective in maintaining the moisture of the lips. If your lips are cracking too much, then do not apply lipstick for a few days. Also, before applying matte lipstick in winter and after applying lipstick, do not forget to moisturize the lips.
The skin of the hands is the thinnest skin of our body. Therefore, to maintain the moisture of the hands, use a cream containing Vitamin-E. Use hand cream two to four times a day. Use gentle hand wash in winter. If the cold is increasing, then go out wearing gloves only.
To keep your feet safe in winter, apply an oil-based moisturizer instead of a water-based moisturizer. The oil based moisturizer forms a strong layer on the skin of the feet, which is more effective in retaining the moisture of the skin than any ordinary cream. Along with the feet, it is also necessary to take care of the ankles. To make the heels soft and beautiful, apply a lotion that contains petroleum jelly or glycerin. Don’t forget to scrub your feet from time to time.
In the cold weather, mud accumulates in the eyes, as well as the skin around the eyes looks shriveled. To get rid of these problems, wash your eyes with clean water every night before going to bed and then wipe them gently with a cotton ball, this will prevent mud from getting into your eyes. Cleanse cotton balls to tighten the skin around the eyes.
Dip it in almond oil and keep it on the eyelids for five to ten minutes, then massage it gently with one finger. This will make your eyes more beautiful in winter.
Don’t bathe in hot water-
To avoid cold, we often take bath with hot water, but bathing with too hot water takes away the softness of the skin. Therefore, if possible, take bath with cold water or lukewarm water, due to which the moisture of the skin will remain intact. Apply coconut oil on the body immediately after bath. Or add a few drops of essential oil to the bath water.
In this way, by adopting these simple tips, you can get relief from dry skin in winter.
