7 Things to Do this Winter to Protect Your Skin


Winter is the coldest and yet the most beautiful season of the year in some places.  Winter is the time when the days are short and nights become very long and it is also the time when most of us enjoy a holiday traveling with family and friends or just curling up in bed with a favorite book and a piping hot cuppa! Perhaps some people won’t agree with this, because winter is also the time that aggravates medical conditions like arthritis and the freezing winter wind can turn our skin and hair dry, and render the scalp itchy. 

Winter Skin Care Tip

During winter season, most of us have experienced extreme dryness in our skin no matter how much we take care of it. Here are some skin care tips that will make our skin feel soft and supple during winter season.

 Since the skin on your face is more sensitive, use an oil-based 
moisturizer, rather than a water-based moisturizer so that the oil forms a protective layer on the skin and retains moisture on your face. 

 Moisturize your skin several times in a day Use various body oils or body lotion products containing 
avocado oil, primrose oil, almond oil, tea tree oil, mineral oil or glycerin daily to reduce the dryness on your skin. 
 Drinking water helps your skin stay young and wrinkle free. Don’t forget to keep yourself hydrated by drinking plenty of water everyday during winter season. 

 Winter sun can also damage your skin, so put on some 
sunscreen to your face and hands while going out during winter.

 The skin on your hands has fewer oil glands, and has the thinnest skin layer than in any other part of the body. During winter season, to avoid cracking or itching of the hands wear gloves while going out.

 Having a hot bath during winter season does feel great, but the intense heat of a hot bath or shower can lead to loss of moisture in our skin. Lukewarm water is much better for a bath during winter.

Winter Make up Tip

Every woman looks forward to making herself look beautiful even during the cold winter season. Choose make up colors that are suitable for winter season. Here are some make up tips for a glam look during winter season.

 Skin type is most important during winter season. If you have a 
dry skin, use a suitable lotion and apply all over your face gently before you apply make up. Whereas for oily skin you just need to apply a little bit of it.

 Use a creamy liquid foundation that matches your skin tone and apply over your face for a smooth look.

 After applying the foundation, apply some powder on your face to get the flawless appearance.

 Choose a warmer eye shadow shade like browns or grays and apply on the upper part of your eyelid to make your eyes look more striking.

 Use a blusher that will add a little color on you face so you don’t look too pale.

 Use black mascara and apply on your eyelashes. 

 Apply lipstick or a colorless lip-gloss on your lips for a smooth and moist look.
