#HealthBytes: Tips to maintain great skin health during winters
Winter is not the best season for your skin.
The cold weather, coupled with lower humidity levels results in dry air, which snatches the much-needed moisture away from your skin.
This can lead to skin irritation, chapping, redness, itching, cracking, and even bleeding.
Here are 6 easy tips to help keep your skin soft, shiny, and beautiful during these winters.
How to maintain skin health during winters
Use lukewarm water; immediately use moisturizer after washing
Lukewarm water: Hot showers and baths sure feel great during the cold weather, but they strip your skin off essential oils, rendering it weak and lifeless. That's why, it is suggested to use lukewarm water for washing the skin, whenever possible.
Moisturize: Right after you wash your hands or take a bath, use a natural skin-moisturizer to avoid skin roughness.
Cover-up your skin; Use a humidifier
Cover-up: Cover the otherwise exposed skin regions like your neck or hands by wearing scarves and gloves, to protect your skin from the chilly winds. Also, always use sunscreen while heading out in the day, as the winter-sun can be as harmful as the summer sun.
Humidifier: Lack of humidity in winters can harm your skin. So, consider installing a humidifier at home.
