7 Useful Tips To Maintain Healthy Skin During Winters

As the air gets colder and drier in winter, the moisture content of our skin begins to drop, leading to dry, itchy, and red skin. Skin redness is a very common skin problem that affects all skin types. However, people with dry skin or with a history of any skin problem are more prone to it. It can occur in any area of your body, but parts that are continuously exposed to cold and harsh climates are most likely to be affected.

1. Modify your skincare routine to meet the requirements of your skin. Usually, in winter, the skin needs an extra boost of moisture. Incorporate oils and moisturisers according to your skin type in your routine

1. Invest in a good humidifier. It helps in keeping your skin from drying out by maintaining the humidity levels in your surroundings

1. Avoid hot water baths since hot water can make your skin dry by stripping its natural oils. Instead, use lukewarm water.  Do not forget to moisturise right after

1. Always wear sunscreen to maintain healthy skin even in winters

1. Use gentle cleansers for your hands and body to keep them soft. Cleansers with high alcohol and fragrance content may dry out your skin

1. Mildly exfoliate your skin once a week to get rid of dead skin cells. This will also add to the effectiveness of your moisturisers and serums

1. Drink adequate amounts of water to stay hydrated and modify your eating habits according to the season
