Winter season calls for extra care and attention as far as skincare is concerned. The cold weather causes dry, itchy, and scaly skin. Simple changes to your skincare routine, lifestyle, and diet can help you maintain healthy skin this winter. You can help reduce these effects by prepping your skin for winter by adding these simple tips into your winter skin care routine.
1. Choose a Moisturizing Cleanser
Cleansers are a great way to remove dirt and dry skin from the skin's surface. However, choosing the right cleanser which is natural and organic is critical as they can zap the natural oils, resulting in extreme dryness and fine lines. Use cleansers that contain moisturizers to avoid stripping your skin's natural moisture barrier. For example, if you are looking for a face wash for dry skin, you can opt for Medimix Moisturizing Face Wash. This face wash for dry skin is enriched with Kesar and Milk Cream that gives deep nourishment.
2. Exfoliate Your Scalp
Shampoos are an essential part of any hair care regimen because they clean the scalp and leave you with clean, healthy hair. Medimix Anti-dandruff shampoo is best if you’re experiencing severe dandruff and a flaky scalp. This Ayurvedic hair shampoo for hair fall and dandruff also fights scalp dryness and strengthens your hair from the roots. The anti-dandruff conditioner from Medimix further adds moisture to your hair leaving it soft and bouncy.
3. Avoid Long Hot Showers
When it's cold outside, it's tempting to turn up the heat and take a long, hot shower or bath. However, hot showers and long baths are strictly forbidden. Excessively hot water will not only dehydrate you but will also remove the necessary oils from your body.
4. Use a Natural Moisturizer
Use oil-based products rather than water-based ones to preserve vital moisturizing oils in your skin. Aloe Vera, Yogurt, Honey, and Coconut Oil are examples of natural products. You could also use Moisturizer that is filled with the goodness of Milk Cream, Lakshadi Oil and Glycerine as they help repair your skin leaving it soft and supple. Apply moisturizer or lotion immediately after washing to lock in as much moisture as possible and remember to moisturize your hands and feet.
5. Use a Hydrating Body Wash
Apart from a good moisturizer and sunscreen, a good body wash that makes you feel refreshed and energised is very much essential. You can achieve not only picture-perfect glowing skin but also enrich your skin and body with the new Medimix body wash range. The Aloe Vera body wash helps hydrate and energise your skin.
The Medimix Vetiver Body Wash contains Vetiver and Argan Oil, which aid in skin healing, giving it long-lasting nourishment. You could also use the Medimix Natural Glycerine Body Wash to help hydrate and moisturize your skin from all the harsh chemicals.
6. Protect Your Skin from The Sun
Even though we are less exposed to the sun in the winter, this does not mean we should stop protecting ourselves from its rays. Before heading outside, apply a moisturizing, broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher to all exposed areas of your body.
During winter, your body's oil and sweat glands, as well as your blood vessels, constrict slightly. This makes it difficult for your skin to maintain its natural health and radiance which is why it requires your assistance. These tips are simple to follow and can be easily added into your daily routine.
