How to take care of my skin in winter?
Hello, I am 18 years old. I am a college student. I am very much concerned about my skin. I have dry skin. How to take care of my skin in winter? Please recommend some tips.
@mitali Caring for skin during winter takes just a little extra time and effort because the conditions are rather extreme for our tender protective barrier. Skin gets exposed to the elements: cold air whipping wind sun reflecting off snow. Low humidity is common in colder climates stealing moisture from skin every second of every day. And indoors it's blasted with dry heat. It's no wonder our skin often ends up dry flaky and itchy. And once dryness starts skin can more easily crack and bleed. The natural oils your skin produces also help protect it and keep it healthy. It's a good idea to avoid long baths and showers and you shouldn't wash your body too frequently either. When you do use warm not hot water. After bathing or showering pat dry and moisturize your damp skin. Add moisture from the inside out. Increasing your water intake will help hydrate your skin. Don't forget sunscreen. Just because it's cold outside doesn't mean the sun isn't affecting your skin
