Apart from bringing the green back into our lives, winter also brings dryness. With the drop in the temperature, the humidity level also drops and our skin becomes dehydrated due to the dry air. Tending to our skins becomes vital as it readily reacts to the humidity and dampness in the atmosphere, also cold air during winter has little moisture when compared to the warm summer air.
Here are 3 essential skincare routines for the winter
Honey + Olive oil
Honey is rich in antioxidants and it helps fight against flaking and drying of human skin. Antioxidants are electrons that electrons/hydrogen from any substance to an oxidising agent and can prevent slow cell damage. Antioxidants protect the human skin by producing free radicals. These free radicals can sometimes be the main reason for damage or death of a cell. Take 2 teaspoons of honeyed mix it with a few drops of olive oil and leave it on for 10 minutes before washing it off with warm water.
Milk cream + Lemon juice + Rose water + Milk
Uses of milk and milk cream are many, but they are saviours when it comes to dry skin. The lactic acid in milk helps improve the texture and health of the skin. Milk helps prevent premature ageing, improves the radiance of the skin, reduces the stains on the face, softens and nourishes skin, heals wounds and removes the layer of dead skin covering your face. Take a teaspoon of milk and a two teaspoons of milk cream, mix these with a few drops of lemon juice and rose water. Apply this on your body and let it rest for 10-15 minutes and then wash it off with some water.
Castor oil/Almond oil/Coconut oil
These oils are nothing but magic potions, each one oh-so perfect for your skin. Castor oil helps reduce stretch marks, sunburn, acne, dry skin, treats ring worms and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. Coconut oil needs no introduction! It is an amazing source of Vitamin E, saturated fats, proteins and caprylic acid. Coconut oil doesn’t just treat dry skin, it helps in treating eczema, psoriasis, acne and even cleans out impurities that block the pores. Almond oil is another extremely well known and trusted remedy for dry skin. It reduces the risk of heart attack, helps in weight loss, lowers cholesterol level, improves brain function, alkalizes the body, nourishes the nervous system and provides healthy fats. It also helps improve the condition and appearance of our skin.
