How to Take Care of Your Skin in Winter

Winter is the most dangerous season for the skin especially when you have sensitive and dry skin. It makes dry skin drier and creates cold rashes on sensitive skin. That is why you need a special care if you want to look glowing in this season too.

Getting dry skin is the main problem of this season. So keep your skin hydrated with an ideal diet. Drink adequate amount of plain water, fruits and vegetable juice, soups and other drinks such as tea and coffee. Dry air will blot water from your body. So if you do not supply adequate water your skin will get wrinkled and ashy.

You need to wash your skin everyday. But be careful that extensive washing may make your skin dry. On the other hand if you do not keep your skin clean, acne, pimples and other skin rashes will appear on your skin and make you awfully bad. So take mild liquid soap and wash the dirt and dust from your body.

Water that you should use should neither be too hot nor very cold because both will make your skin dry and wrinkled. It is better to take lukewarm water to clean the oil from the skin. After every wash wipe your skin dry with soft towel but do not rub harshly.

But after every wash you need to moisturize your skin. Massage moisturizer at least 2-3 times a day on clean skin to prevent the dehydration of the skin. One such massage should be done at night before going to sleep because our skin repairs when we sleep.

So nourish your skin with nourishment crème at bed time. Scrubbing dead skin cells from the body is the easiest way to keep your epidermis look gorgeous throughout the season. Oatmeal soap is great to remove dead body cells and pumice stone removes coarse skin from heels, feet, elbow etc.

When outdoor temperature is extremely low and a chill wind is blowing, try to stay indoors. But if you have to go out cover all parts of the body with warm. Otherwise chill air may create chill burns on your skin.

At day time when you are out in the sun do not forget to apply sun screen lotion because snow and ice reflects sunlight and increase your skin exposure to damaging ultraviolet rays of the sun.
